A Hundred Years Ago By Lauryn Sometimes I wonder what it was like a hundred years ago.

Sometimes I think that there were people with fancy cars, hats, coats and everything. Everything was so fancy. Someday I wish to go back in time and see what it was like a hundred years ago. But sometimes I like where I am, and I want to stay here for a very long time.

Wizard War I by AJ

BOOM! BOOM! POW! The wizard people are battling Gorlochs for land. The wizards want the land so they can farm. The Gorlochs want the land so they can take over Marzoo Planet. The Gorlochs are green with red eyes. Their feet are webbed and purple. The Wizards look, like . . . well . . . WIZARDS! There are all kinds of wizards like Ice Wizard, Water Wizard, and Fire Wizard. . . any wizard that you can think of. The war started at eighteen forty one. A wizard bumped into a Gorloch and said, Watch where you are going! The Gorloch threw out his gun and pointed it at the wizard. He shot him. Another wizard saw him and ran back to the village and told his friends. Then he told one of his friends that knew the mayor. The mayor sent an attack on the Gorloch's village. That is how it all started. I wonder what will happen next???

Outside by Allen Outside in the grassy, green, growing scenery Where the trees grow and the birds sing While the bees buzz and the ants make homes All the plants grow, absorbing sunlight and water. The Frogs jump near the pond, eating fly pie for their lunch, while large mouth bass barge up from the water. The cute little bugs lay their eggs. As the wind whistles wildly, the animals look around for predators, then quietly burrow into their homes. . .

The Cell Phone, the Sheep, and the Bee By Breanna

Today, I got a new cell phone. And when I went to the barn. I set it down on the barrel of hay. Well, I forgot it was on there. When I opened the barrel of hey. It fell and the sheep got loose. And ran over it breaking it. And I got stung by a bee. Trying to get the sheep. When the sheep was in its den. My phone was broken. So I just put ice on my bee sting. Then I put mustard on it. So it wouldn't get infected. So I guess it had to be a good day. Remember never buy me phone... Unless I promise to not break it.

What Animal Would I Play With By Jared Boy, Oh Boy! If I had to choose any animal to play with, I dont know what it would be. I do know I wouldnt want to play with any cat-like animal. . . . they would bite me. A kangaroo is too jumpy and wild. Elephants and giraffes are not my favorite animal. . . so they are out. If only I was fast, I would play chase with a zebra. Or if I could fly, I would play with an eagle or a falcon. . . pretty much any kind of bird. Both grizzlies and polar bears would eat me! I dont like being freezing to death. . . so penguins are out also. Maybe I should play with sea animalsalthough a sea turtle is slow . . . so NO! Tiny fish would swim away from me, and both octopuses and squids spray ink. All sharks will attack me, but a dolphin would be good. OH SHOOT! I forgot, I cant hold my breath long under water. WAIT a MINUTE!!! I forgot one animal and it is a pet. . . .D O G! That is the animal I would play with!

Tiger Lilies By Mr. Waylon Vermillion and gold, Blazing like the sunrise. Dark at its center And bright at its borders. Two trios of petals, A pair of triangles intertwines. Six black stamen, Like seeds in a melon, Rise from within, offering pollen to bees. The tall, slender stem Splits into a fork. None stands alone, Joined with brothers and sisters. As a family, they lean, Drinking in the sunlight as one.

Behind Grandma's Furnace by Mrs. Thacker

Some life lessons are hard to learn . . . as a child, I loved to visit Grandma and Grandpa Brown's house. Sitting on the front porch glider with Grandpa . . . listening to his stories, smelling his cherry tobacco, and watching the smoke rise from his pipe. OR helping grandma fix the meals, snatching leftover bacon in the frig, or playing the old upright piano in the front room.

These were all well and good, but one of the best things was to sneak away for a few minutes . . . down to the basement. It was damp and musty . . . you might hear the sump pump running on and off. Cobwebs could brush your head as you were walking through. . . but there was a treasure back behind the furnace. There was a little three shelf bookcase filled with Cherry Ames and Nancy Drew books. There had belonged to Mom and Aunt Gale. The pages were yellowed, but I didn't care. I would go down and leaf through those books , spending hours reading. Grandma always knew where I had disappeared.

I was so excited when one day she said, Why don't you take the books home? I couldn't believe my ears! We loaded up three grocery sacks, and I gently took

them home, carefully and proudly displaying them in my room on my bookshelf. . . I read three in one day!

You would think this story would end happily there. . . but the next time I went to Grandma's house and disappeared down to the basement. . . I sadly walked over to the bookcase. . . it was empty! There were no books waiting for me. I realized that I had made a mistake, a great mistake. Those books belonged at Grandma's and my secret hiding place. I should have slowly savored those books at Grandma's house . . . not greedily devouring them in my room . . . some of life's lessons are hard to learn.
