Royale the Turkey

November 17, 2015

Dear Luke the Farmer,
            My mom was visiting me when I heard that your children wanted to eat me for Thanksgiving!  I have a big family in Texas and if you try to end me, you’ll only get a feathery meal.  It will taste like hair balls.  I haven’t taken a bath in 100 days!  I smell really bad! 
            I have a closet full of pictures of me and my family.  I have 20 pictures of my big family.  I think you would love to eat my brother instead. 
            I am very feathery.  If you try to eat me, you might find feathers in my meat. 
            If you eat me, you should buy a gas mask.  I will stink up your house.  I smell like a dead cat.

Dear Mr. Jon the Farmer,
            I was just taking a stroll by the fence when I heard some ducks quacking.  They quacked that I’m going to be your Thanksgiving dinner!  I would not be a good Thanksgiving turkey.  I might have the flu.  Besides, I help make eggs.  I am too old and I might die before you ever start the dinner.
            You see, I help make your eggs.  You look like you need eggs.  You might like deviled eggs or scrambled eggs.  My eggs are the best!  Everyone wants my big, delicious eggs.
            Warning!  I have the flu.  You do not want to eat me. You could get violently sick.  I cough and all day my raspy cough wakes up the pigs.
            I am too old.  I might even pass before dinner, so please let me just have a happy last few days of my life.
            You really should think about eating KFC for Thanksgiving dinner.  It would be much better.
            Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. Jon the farmer.

Dear Joe the Farmer,
            I was in the coop eating when your wife said she was going to cook ME for Thanksgiving.  That is when I saw my life flash before my beady, little googley eyes.
            Mr. Farmer, I am disgusted with you and your wife.  Have you ever looked at my characteristics, like how skinny I am?  How about how little I am?  How about how dirty I am?
            Have you seen me do the weirdest things lately?  If not, here are the things I’ve been doing.  I’ve been barely eating anything.  I’m also very young so I am small.  Here’s the last thing.  I have been taking mud baths every hour. 
            Mr. Joe the farmer, I think you should eat pizza this year for Thanksgiving.

Me and a Scarecrow

By: Jenny
Mrs. Spencer's 1st Grade Class

One day I met a scarecrow. I met him at the barn. He was wearing jeans and a collared shirt. First I asked him what his name was. He said my name is Jonnie. I said my name is Jenny. Next I asked him if he wanted to go to the beach and he said yes. We drove to the beach in my car. When we got there we built a sand castle. Finally we went in the water. I asked Jonnie if he wants to come to my house to eat dinner. Jonnie said yes. We had chicken and rice and beans. Then I got Jonnie and me key lime pie. Then I asked Jonnie if he wanted to live at my house. He said yes. We watched a movie. We watched Frozen. We had popcorn too. The next morning we went to the pool. Jonnie just watched though because he learned that his hay falls out. The end.

If I Were Principal for a Day...

By: Chloe, Mrs. Spencer's 1st Grade Class

First I will get up and go to work. I will be busy so I will get my assistant to help me. Her name is Ryan. She is nice and kind. Next I will go to each class room to make sure all the children are safe and working like the teacher said to and make sure they are good. Then I will go to lots of meetings that help keep our school safe. Everybody helps keep the school safe not just the principal. So does the assistant principal and teacher. Finally I will finish all my work. When I am finished with all my work I will go home with my family and dogs and get ready for dinner. I will eat, brush my teeth and go to bed.

My Special Snowflake

By: Sam, Mrs. Spencer's 1st Grade Class
     One day when I went sledding in Pennsylvania, I was about to ramp off of some snow when a snowflake fell on my nose.
     Later, I noticed that the snowflake is very special.  It would do anything I wanted it to do!
     The next day, I went home.  I put it in my refrigerator.  I gave it a secret power.  The power was that it would make my family better.
     The next day, I opened the refrigerator.  The jar was frozen, but the snowflake wasn’t.  It was just spinning around and around.  It was working on its power! 
     A few days later, I realized that it was growing.  It was getting bigger every night!  I decided to give it a name.  It’s name is Little.  I also gave it some ice, and the power was working! 
      I gave my snowflake a milkshake.
     Me and my snowflake liked the name Little. 
     We had a great time.
The End

My Special Snowflake

By: Armand, Mrs. Spencer's 1st Grade Class
     When it was really snowy outside, I put on my hat and my snowsuit, too.  I went outside and built a snowman.  I gave it one large ball, then a normal ball, then a small ball on top.  I put in a carrot nose and ten buttons for eyes and a mouth.  I put in a carrot nose, two stick arms, and a really black hat for its head.
     The next day I went outside to see my snowman.  The snowman was alive!  I was so surprised.  He told me his name was Sammy.  I tried to let Sammy in my house but it was too hot, so I put him in my snow machine. 
     Sammy said that it was crazy, so I got in too.  It was very fun.
     After that, we went to the park to play on the swings.  We went high.  It was extremely fun.  I also let him get on rides.  It was a blast because we went on super fast rides. 
     After that, me and Sammy slept in the snow machine and I slept in my bed. 
     Sammy said, Good night.”
     I said good night back.  Then we both had a nice dream.
