Hello everyone, this is Ashlee. I just read a terrific book called Wind by Ron Bacon. It is a non-fiction book about wind. It’s telling how wind is made and how it is so strong. This book can be found in Mrs. Short’s class in Eisenhower Elementary School. It has lots of true illustrations. So if you would like to learn more about wind, pick this book up and read!!! I give it 5 stars*****out of 5 stars.

April 29, 2010: Abigael’s Book Review

Hi, this is Abigael. I read this really good book called Fox at School by Edward Marshall, pictures by James Marshall. It was a chapter book. It was about Fox and his classmates and they had a fire drill. They have to slide down a slide but Fox and his teacher are afraid. But then the principal came and told them they had to come down. So Fox went down first then Miss Moon! I give this book 5 stars *****! You can find this book in Miss Short’s class.

This week we are finishing up our unit on the 6-trait called Sentence Fluency. Today we made “Triangle Sentences.” This was a fun way to stretch out our sentences and make them more detailed. We learned how to start with a noun and then added a verb, and then an adjective, then an adverb and finally a prepositional phrase. Below are several examples of our sentences.

SYDNEY: The hot campfire popped loudly and hotly in the campground.

ASHLEY:  The cheetah cat scratched wildly on the couch.

MATT:  The happy tiger ate slowly in the rain forest.

LAUREN: The golden cat meowed excitedly under my bed.

KAILEIGH: The spotted dragon walked coolly in the forest.
