By Rebekah Moore
The wind was crackling, crack, crunch.
The thunder went boom-bam!
The sky lit up with a glow of lightning.
It was scary.
The thunder made a shake in the sky.
I was scared.
I hugged my mom and dad.
The lightning stopped.
The clouds went away.
There was just a bit of rain.
“The Green Thumb Knight”
By Jevin Litwiler
I am the mighty “green thumb” knight.
I know gardening is a constant fight.
I’m equipped bravely with a trowel
To dig up grubs that are foul.
I also hate the moles
Who dig those bothersome holes.
My evidence is a mound
That isn’t level with the ground.
I’m tired of the slimy slugs.
They’re worse than all the other bugs.
Come out to devastate at night;
Hiding when the sun is bright.
Everywhere you look – a pest!
They never seem to take a rest.
If you battle insects and weeds,
I can help you with your needs.
Armed with safe, nontoxic spray,
I’ll be over right away.
“Where I’m From”
By Ann Marie Hill
St. Peter’s Elementary
I am from divorced parents.
I am from Deshner’s once a month and chasing my sister through stores
I am from southern cooking with my dad and Irish with my mom
I am from reading a whole nine hundred page book in three days
I am from “Don’t strangle your sister” and “Go play with your cousins”
I am NOT from vampires but I wish I was.
