My Dog Is As Smelly As Dirty Socks!







We read this book this week: My Dog Is As Smelly As Dirty Socks. The book has many similes in it and the author created a picture of each family member in the book using real objects to represent the simile. We REALLY loved this book. This week we worked with Ms. Bristol's 4th grade class to create our own similes and pictures about a family member. This was so much fun! The kids did a great job. We turned our similes and pictures into a movie. Click below to view our movie!

Awesome Author!



The Awesome Author this week is~ Caleb


My Neighborhood Pool

One beautiful, sunny day in the summer me and my sister asked my mom if we could go to the pool. She said yes. I was 6 when that happened. Then my mom said to get our swim suits on. After that we got in the car. I was filled with joy. I felt like I was going to explode. I had a smile on my face. "Hurry up mom!" I yelled. Finally she started the car. We did not have to buckle up. I was a little bit scared. When I did not notice the car stopped. "We are there!" my sister yelled. My mom put sunscreen on us. I even brought a noodle to help me swim. At last my mom said I could go in the pool. "Yippee!" I yelled. I did a cannonball into the pool. I had a smile on my face.



Great writing Caleb!
