On Tuesday we did a project and we had to stick a crumbled up piece of paper under our arm.  We had to keep it in there for the whole day, but at lunchtime I had to quit so I could carry my tray to eat.

Last Tuesday my class and I pretended to be a penguin parent and we had to crumble up a pice of  paper and put it under our armpit. A lot of people quit at about lunch time including me. I quit because I realy wanted to do somthing fun at recess. After I did that thing at recess and the rest of the day I was comfortable. It was not so much like a penguin because a penguin has to keep it in their legs for a longer period.

THE BLACK SNAKE


                                   


Jon saw a VIPER it took so long to look at it we grew go-tees it was a copperhead the leaves swayed the water sounded like the ocean it was about 6 feet long my sister was scared we ran up the steep hill it didn’t chase us we didn’t go back down to the creek for the rest of the summer. We see a lot of snakes but the VIPER was the biggest snake we ever saw.

Today in class we had our fall party.  We did lots of fun things. We had a challenge to guess how many candy corn pieces were in the jar.  We also made a craft.  It was picture frame!    After that we had lunch.  What a great fall party!

My pet hamster’s name is Cheerio because she as miniature as a light bulb and as golden as the sun. My hamster is as soft as the fluff on a bunny rabbits fur. Cheerio is so miniature that she can fit through tubes that we can only put our fingers in . Cheerio loves running in her wheel, the is plastic and also very load. She burrows so much it’s like


She’s addicted to it, she also burrows her food. When my hamster walks on your hands,


 her little feet tickle you. She eats corn and grains.

Being a father penguin must be hard because as I tried it you cant pick up things properley, you cant run as fast and you cant eat for a long time. (P.S. it was very uncompertle with a sharp crumbled up piece of paper in your arm pit.)

Mr. sandridge made us feel like male penguins by holding a crumbled up piece of paper in our armpits and tryed not to drop it. Lots of people quit, but I didn't. It realy dosen't feel like it because penguins dont use pencils and papers. It was very, very, uncomfurtable but I wanted to win. So I did it.     Thats what was fun in the classroom!         [ Or Antarctica.]

On tuesday we learned about father emporer penguins and how they keep the eggs warm. Then we crumpled up a piece of paper and stuck it under our armpits for the day. It was hard but it must be even harder for penguins cause' they have to put it on thier feet.

Having an egg (peice of paper crinkeled up into a ball) under my armpit was hard! Mr. Sandridge said if we could keep the peice of paper under our armpit we would get a prize, so I tried to keep my egg under there but during recess when I was playing circle dodgeball when I got hit in the arm the egg fell out. Being a Penguin Parent is hard.

Last Tuesday,(Or some Tuesday)my whole class and I

took BIG construction paper and tried to crumple

it up into the size of a penguin egg.We kept it in

our armpits for the whole day,and it was diffucult

to pick up a dictionary.It wasn't a good feeling

when I had to pick up a dictionary,and when the

"egg" almost fell out a few times...!Now,I think I

know how the father penguin feels-A little upset or sad because he can't play with others,(because

the egg will fall out)and worried because another

penguin could bump him and make the egg fall out.

I guess it may be hard to be a father penguin...

We had to carry an egg in our armpits at shcool and it was difacult because we cant drop it or youll be out.but the good part was if you made til the end of class you got candy!I think Emperor peinguins feel like they fell off a cliff!They cant eat ANYTHING FOR TWO WHOLE MONTHS!they would do ANYTHING just to keep the chick in the egg alive.

It felt hard to hold the egg in your armpit. The empereor penguin sheffles his feet so that the egg does not roll out and get cold and let the egg die. He feels kind of frustrated because he doen't want the egg to die and its hard to keep the egg in his feet. (scribed by Mr.S)

When we had to  cary the egg around I felt a little mad because it was hard to cary it with out it  touching anything.I think the father penguin feels hungry because he can't eat for 2 months.Thats how I felt.

It was harder for me to keep my fake egg in my armpit because I had to change the way I do things. I had to do things differently without letting my egg fall out of my armpit. It didn't fall, and I kept the egg warm. I think it is hard for the emporer penguin to keep the egg on his feet. And it is probaly hard for him to keep it there for two months. And he can't eat foe two months! So that is why I think it is hard for the emporer penguin.

Ithought it would be cool. It was kind of weird when I heard that we had to put it in our armpit. It also was weird when I heard that we had to put a peice of cardboard paper in our armpit. I felt kind of sad when I heard that the penguin father had to take care of the penguin egg itself and when I heard that it couldn't eat for two monthes.

I felt worried when I had to hold the egg under my armpit.I think the emperor penguin feels worried too because if he drops the baby penguin then they won't have A baby penguin for A while. thats how I think the father penguin felt.THE END!!!

I think this was onoying because when I had to sit down and write. another thing is when I had to pick up my stuff without it touching it touching anything. something else was it was badly folded because I started a little after everyone else because I was who got the paper for my table so I couldn't have it goodly folded. I think it stinks for the father penguin because he can't eat for to mounths! then the mother penguin just eat away! so if I were the father penguin I would hate it.
