Life Cycle of a Butterfly

The life cycle of a caterpillar. First, the caterpillar finds a tree. Then, they slowly make a cocoon. About a week to ten days later, it will hatch into an adult butterfly. After that their wings will dry. Then, it will fly away and live happy ever after.

Legos were invented by Ole Kirk Christiansen. Legos were invented in Denmark. Lego blocks come in many colors like red, orange, yellow, green, black, gray, white and blue. There are actually purple and pink Lego blocks too. Legos can be built in sets or you can use your imagination and create your own. Legos are actually my favorite toy!

A Tribute to Ben Franklin

Life without Ben Franklin would be terrible.  If he didn’t invent all of his very useful inventions, we would be in BIG TROUBLE. 

Life without firefighters would be VERY bad because if there were fires somewhere we wouldn’t be able to put them out as easily and then the fire would spread all over the place.

Life without lightning rods would be AWFUL. If lightning strikes it causes fires and that brings us back to the firefighters and if they didn’t exist then nobody would be able to put out the fire from the lightning.

Life without insurance would be extremely TERRIBLE because then if I break a bone my parents would not be able to have insurance to pay for me to get it fixed!

If Ben’s inventions did not exist our life would be VERY HARD!!

Making My Mark with Responsibility

The way I will make my mark on the world is by being responsible for my actions. I will be responsible at home. I will do my chores. I will clean up the kitchen, make my bed, put my stuffed animals back, fold my blankets and even put them back where they belong. I can also pick up my dolls. When my mom or dad says “Go do your work ” I have to listen to them. I will also be responsible at school. I will also do Lexia and Freckle because they help me to be responsible for my learning. When Mrs.Nan is talking I should respect her by listening. When she is trying to teach others I should listen because it is important for learning. I will be responsible for my actions and show kindness to my family, friends and teachers.

How I Will Make My Mark

The way I will make my mark on the world is by showing positivity. I can show positivity by cheering somebody up if they are sad. I can play with someone if they don’t have anyone to play with. I will show positivity by never giving up. I can show positivity by not saying I can’t do it and instead I will say I can do it! I can show positivity by not telling someone that they can’t do it and in place of that I will cheer them on.
