Part One Turkey Wars By: Abby

18 Nov

Once upon a time, there was a turkey named Billy. Billy was the oldest turkey on the farm so, that meant he was going to be killed by the farmer on Thanksgiving morning. So, one cold wet morning Billy snuck out of the barn. When Billy walked at of barnyard doors, his feet were wet from all the dew. Then, he got to this mysterious place. This place was filled with free turkeys who ran wherever they wanted. Billy’s beak dropped open with amazement. Billy was scared at first but, when he met new friends he fit in like he was there for 8 years or something. Then, later that day, a mean farmer found the turkeys and started catching them so, he could sell them for money.

Story Corner: My Family’s Cooked Thanksgiving Turkey……….IS ALIVE!!!??? Part One By Kyra

18 Nov

Last year, my family was cooking our turkey (which was a jaw-dropping 20 pounds) in the oven. It took all four of us to lift it out of the freezer and into the oven! “What farm did this giant monster turkey come from!?”,Nick asked. Mom replied,”How am I supposed to know! Ask your Dad!” Nick waddled over to Dad. “Dad….”, Nick said but was cut off, “I don’t know!”, replied Dad. I said,”Nick you’re gonna drop your side on my toes!!!!” Nick said sarcastically,”SO-RRY! Finally, we got the giganto monster turkey into our teeny-tiny-itsy-bitsy-little-miniature oven. After a gazillion hours the over-satisfying little ding was heard by Dad. “It’s done!!”, Dad said. “Gobble-GOBBLE!!!” My brother and I screamed,”AHHHH!!!” Mom said,”Honey, what kind of joke are you playing on us now?” Then we heard it again, “Gobble-GOBBLE-GGGGGOOOOOBBBBLLLLEEE!!!!!”


Story Corner-It’s Magic! by: Samantha

18 Nov

People don’t always think about magic, which is crazy! Magic is completely true and people always use it without even knowing. It’s called “eating and sleeping”. Dreams are making things up! And eating is putting things in to fuel your body, which is pretty cool. Dreams sometimes you can wake up in and you don’t even know. I always know I’m in a dream at the last second. So, next time someone brings it up you’ll know magic is real!

Story Corner: Thanksgiving Time by Natalie

18 Nov

On Thanksgiving you celebrate a time of thanks. Its the time to celebrate what you are grateful for. Our usual food is a turkey that weighs 10 pounds! That is a lot for an average turkey. I feel bad forĀ families who might not have enough to eat. Some people volunteer during the holidays, delivering or serving meals, which is really nice! In our family, we also eat pies, especially my favorite (pumpkin pie). We are very concerned because my Nanna is sick. She has been in the hospital for months. My family is praying for our Nanna all the time. We hope she will get better before Thanksgiving. I’ve missed her rose smelling perfume,rosy cheeks,and amazing food. Last Thanksgiving day our pray was heard. We were so thankful she came. We had a great day, and were glad to have spent the day with our family. Nanna wiil be coming this year, too!

Author’s note: this story is a work of fiction.
Here’s a very famous Thanksgiving picture by artist, Norman Rockwell:

The Heart Shaped Island! By: Addy N.

21 Oct

+ NOT a true story+
Kyra, Natalie, and I had set out on a helicopter ride. Sadly, the ride did not end up so well. The helicopter crashed, and some of us did not make it (the pilot), others of us go injured (me). The coast at the south end of the island ended in a point that kind of looked like an upside-down ice-cream cone. We started heading to the north end of the island. “Ahh, my ankles are killing me!” I said. “Come on!” Kyra answered. “It hurts!” I protested. “Hmmm, let me see” Kyra said as she started rummaging through her bag. “Let’s see– Game boy, flashlight, food, D.S. Wait! Why do you have your D.S. in here? For an emergency, or in this case– total boredom?” She started going through her bag again: “O.K., paper, bags, book, tarantula…Wait–tarantula? Ahhh!” All of us, except Kyra, was screaming. Kyra started laughing, “It’s okay, my brother put a rubber spider in there!” “Oh,” we all said in unison, and started laughing.Kyra said, “O.K., I need to find wrap for your ankle… a-hah, first aid kit!” After a minute of searching, she found the wrap,”There you go”. Feeling better now, I replied, “Thanks, let’s go to the other end of the island now.Kyra and Natalie replied,”OK.” When we got to the other end the coast, it looked like the top of a heart. “This island is shaped like a heart,” we all said together. “What’s that?” Natalie asked, pointing down. The ground was shaking, and a podium appeared with a heart shaped stone on it. Kyra walked over and took it– suddenly we were back where the helicopter took of. We could hear a search plane. We were safe!
