The light is too bright!
I told you I was tight.
I have a kite.
It is night.
 Oh no, the time is not right!


Peyton R.

The morning was sunny and I
was flying a kite. I think I was
right! It’s morning so I have to
 get ready for a flight
and while
my dad was flying
we were high
in the sky.
I just mean to spy
but now I feel bad that my friends
didn’t come!! Now I lie
in the bed and
but flying high
was fun!!


Veronica G.

I went outside to feel
the light. I packed my bags and went to go for
a flight. Let me tell you
it took all night. I had
a fun time. The lights were
shining so bright. I’m finally
done. This is a great sight.

The badger loves to fight at night
The basketball player loved to dump the
ball in the lump. My kangaroo jumped
in the sky.
The badger went to college for knowledge.

Oh my, I hurt my thigh!
The doctor said “Don’t cry.” My thigh hurt so bad,
I hope I don’t die. I’m tired and lazy
Thigh, please don’t make me cry.
I love you thigh!


Dominic W.

I bumped my head. My dog
is a grump. The plane went sky high.
Why did you do that?


London L.

She got a pump. I have a big
lump. There was a big bump
I got scared that I will jump. I love
to run and play. I play with bubbles.


Gracie B.

I love sunny days
on sunny days I smell
violet flowers
The sun is shiny
like a clean car window
I see people with ice
cream, and I hear
children laughing and
