Febuary Break
2-23-10

My cat,Simon, had his first birthday party on Wednesday afternoon at 1:00, people enjoyed the very fun games. There was a medim sized Pinyata in the form of a lion. Inside the pinyate, there were 5 heart-shaped stamps for each guest. When I ripped open the lion's nose, I laughed. At the end of the party I wanted to build a snow fort.

I made a snow fort that was relly cool! THe snow fort walls were made out of giant snow balls. Me and my friend Alissa rolled and ralled, making the snow fort was hard work. So I decided that after so hard wor I could do alitle bit of fun by going sledding.

I went to Beverly hill to go sledding. I went down a dare devil run. The run was shaped like a tunel and where it started there was boards so you had to lay down. I have gone on amny breaks but this one was awesome!


I love towrite about my vacations and adventures but this one was one of my favorite. Simon's party was exiting and sledding was crazy but the good part as that I had a good time. I loved wriing this but this is the end. That is what I did over Febuary break!

. Mrs.Wilson began teaching corear in Ohio. In Ohio she taught kindergarden. After a thew years, Mrs.Wilson moved to Birmingham. In Birmingham Mrs.Wilson taught first grade and had 80 kids a day.
After some years, Her cousin was moving to Florida, She wanted mrs. Wilson to have some things. Mrs.Wilson's cousin gave her a native american dress that was her great grandmothers
. The dress was made out of parts of animals. The only way the person who gave it to her great grandmother would have to be a blood brother. The native americans put a weasle tail on the chest.

Ice Skating

Ice skating is a fun sport but a little tricky. It's on ice so you need to practice. I think free skating is the most fun. If you just let your body relax, you will be fine. But first you will need a pair of ics skates.

If your going ice skating you need a pair if ice skates. Take both strings and cross them. Rap them around the boot of the skate. Then you can go ice skating!!!!! But you might want to have fun spinning first.

Spinning on skates is pretty easy if you know how to do it. First go foreward, and do a (not sharp) turn. Then push on one of your feet. Keep pushing on your foot if you want to do more spins. And another trick is going from frontwards to backward.

Ice skating going foreward is easy, but can you go from sakting forward to backwards? skate foreward than push a little on one foot untill you are backwards, But dont stop skating. Then instead of pushing backwards, push in foreward with one of your feet going in front of you, not behind. Now you can go some pace on the ice and go foreward to backward.

If you like spinning and skating backwards,You can learn how to sakte backwara and do a spin or two. spinning is fun and so is going backwards. To do both, you need to go backwards first, then as usual,you push on a foot and spin! Then when your on the ice, you will have fun skating and doing some tricks. Now that you know how to do th ings, I would like to thank you.

I am happy that you can now do some tricksdo I would like to thank you for reading this. I have made this about ice skating cause I enjoy to ice skate an I hope now people (who like to ice skate, like girls) like it too. Ice sakting is fun. So now try to do all hte things I wrote.

Vacations

For my vacation, I went to Florida. The day you fly their is always going to take up most of your day. But at least you wil get their. When my family goes, our friends from Chicago are their.

The Martello's are from Chicago Illinois. They always go to Florida when we go and some other holiday's. The kids names are Alexandra who is 12,Olivia who is 10, Desi who is 7 and Henry now at age 4. We saw wild dolphins with them at the beach.

At sunset, the Martellos and my family saw wild dolphins! Their were two of them, one swam away after a while. The dolphins kind of like sharks cause they did not put their head up, only their fin. They were looking for fish, the dolphin was trying to get the fish when he put his head up.The next day, we went to the Timmises

After me and my friend Amanda went swimming in her pool at her condo, her dad found a huge coconut and we got out as fast as we could. We were going to eat it but the core was rotten, there was little ones too, I took one. The little coconuts had no core. By then, my vacation was practically over.

Florida is a good place to vacation. Always warm weather and palm trees. Some times their are lizards. A warm vacation is a good vacation!

Squirrel was a well known trickster. He always was doing a trick for candy. On day it was hot and sunny. Crab was doing a treasure hunt and got lost in the forest very hungry.Crab called out to his friend."Squirrel, Squirrel!" Crab heard the noise of a squirrel. Crab made a little grin. Squirrel came out of his tree hole holding a pinyata. asked "Do you think I could have something to eat?" Squirrel noded. Then finally said "Pinyata" Crab made a huge smile. While Crab was thinking of candy he tolled Squirrel " I'll be right up!" Squirrel did one nod. Crab clawed and clawed at the tree. But still could not get up.Crab heard BANG! BOING! BOOM! Squirrel trotted on to a branch holding something behind his back. Crab thought it was candy. But was wrong. Squirrel yelled out "Surprise,Surprise!"And quickly dropped out five water baloons mixed with three nuts. Squirrel was laughing so hard he didn't see Crab leave. About a week later, Squirrel was hot and hungry on the beach. Squirrel called out to crab. No sighn of Crab came. Squirrel tried again. "Crab!!!" This time Crab came. Crab said "Yes, How may I help you?" Squirrel hissed " I need to eat man, Well crab, I need to eat!" Crab made a evil grin for a minute. Then whispered "Pinyata" Squirrel jumped up. They went under water. Squirrel's eyes got big from all the danger he saw and plopped up. Squirrel heard BANG!BLOB!BOOM! And walked home with just one piece of candy. The End!

The Huron and the Anishinabeg
Alike Different
They plant crops they don't wear the same clothes
They hunted animals The tribes lived in different areas
They used ALL the stuff from the animal they hunted








We thought the most intresting thing
in our Michigan book was that the indians burried
dead people in mounds. One of them in Ohio was shaped like a Snake.
First the intt the dead people on logs.
