The kids saw the kids

who were moving out

and they said do you

want to be friends and

they said yes and

they became best friends

I have a dog

do you want to see my dog?

New Friends

by Estrella C.

The dress like bubble gum

cute like a doll


Emma is kind

tiny like a ballerina

hair dark as night

bow pink as cotton candy


the houses in a row

couch out of the truck

boxes sitting on the grass


new friends

play baseball

helping move in

nice neighborhood


Ms. Sauer & Mrs. Sanez

The kids say that you want to

play baseball with us. They say

yes. We want to play with you

guys. We love baseball too.

They play baseball

They apologize for being mean

They play games

They play at the park
