My dad said, “Let’s get a dog!”

But the children wanted a cat.  Mom wanted a fish.  One wanted a parakeet.  We had to make a decision about dogs, cats, fish, and parakeets.

We ended up getting a parakeet.

Where My Feet Went This Summer

I went on an air-boat.  It was fun.  We saw alligators.  They were on land, and a couple were in the water looking like logs.  Also, I saw ducks, herons, and bald eagles.  I saw hawks too.

I got off the air-boat.  I walked around the park.  I spotted a place that let you hold a young gator.  It was heavy and two feet long.  It felt smooth on its belly and bumpy on its back.

Next, we went to an alligator show.  We saw alligators jump at chicken on a wire and eat it.  I was surprised that some didn’t get the chicken when their aim looked good.  They were off course because they can’t really see directly in front of them.

It was awesome and very fun and sometimes funny!

Welcome to Your Blog!

Welcome to your blog. This will be a place where you will post pieces you have written. The audience for your writing will not only be students in your own classroom; it will include students in other elementary classrooms as well. Other trusted adults will comment on your writing, making suggestions that will help you to become a better writer.

Always post good writing to your blog. When you post comments about others’ writing, please be considerate and respectful as well as helpful. Treat other online members of this project the same way you would treat them if they were right there in the room with you.

You may not give out personal information, like your name, address, phone number, email address, or family information, to anyone – not even to other members of this project. When you work online on the internet, like we will be doing, it’s important to your safety that you keep personal information about yourself private – even if someone else asks.

If you ever see or read anything on your blog or someone else’s blog that disturbs you or makes you feel uncomfortable, please lower the lid on your computer and tell your teacher right away. She will know how to help.

Finally, be sure to let your parents know about this project. Every day, talk to them about what you’re doing and what you’re learning. They will be interested to hear about your new experiences!
