You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.

Matthew researched the saguaro cactus and created a clay stop motion video. We used Photostory. He is disappointed that the movements are not smoother from one slide to the next. I suggested that we upload it here and ask for advice. Should we use another program such as Moviemaker. Any suggestions would be helpful for the next time. Thanks!

Matthew wrote a story about a goose coming into his yard. He learned to use quotation marks and onomatopoeia to enhance his story.

Wild Goose Chase
By Matthew

One day I went outside. Then I saw a goose! I tried to scare it,
But I got bit. “Honk honk honk,” it honked.
“Mom help,” I cried. “There’s a goose in our yard!”
And she scared it away. She said, “Shoo goose! Shoo goose!”
That was the goofiest goose ever.

Summer Poems

Summer Sun

Matthew and Kaylie wrote poems about their summer fun.

Summer Fun
By Kaylie
Ice-cream trucks and lemonade
At art camp, crafts were made
Hot pancakes with sticky syrup
A dip in the pool
Gets you nice and cool
Not a cloud in the sky
Sweet treats to bake and to eat
Gritty sand underneath your feet
It doesn’t last very long
I am done singing my summer song.

Summer time
by Matthew

Summer is sprinkly sand beneath my toes.
Summer is having fun in a swimming pool.
Summer is ice cream cones and cherry soda dripping
From your chin
