Geometric Shapes

A square has four equal sides,

I like to go for rides.

There is a right angle in my room,

I like the app Zoom.

A rectangle has the same shape as my yard,

We received a postcard.

My friends and I played catch in the shape of a triangle,

I was running and twisted my ankle.

Tropical Rainforest

The tropical rainforest is my favorite,

Its biodiversity is amazing and we should savor it.

It has an ecosystem that should be important to more than just me,

If you don’t think so visit the understory.

Deforestation has helped the climate to change,

If you think it’s cool than you are strange.

We need to protect the canopies,

because without them we will lose lots of species.

The Rainforest

In the canopy, you’ll find the cutest sloth you’ve ever seen

By keeping the rainforest clean you’ll make the leaves grow green

The three-toed sloth species is endangered

People are the biggest danger. That’s why they all need rangers

Deforestation is not helping my sloth friend

And it might be the end of my three-toed friend

The tropical rainforest is my sloth friends home

My sloth doesn’t need a comb

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.
