Today I played another game on Sumdog. The maths game was "Jet Ski Rescue". I had to answer maths equations to get boats from the sinking boat. I won in the end. This maths game was teaching me some of my basic facts, and some hard fractions, like in the picture above.

How I Quit Sucking My Thumb!

Image
By Bruce Lansky


My mother says it’s childish and
my father says it’s dumb—
whenever they discover that
I’m sucking on my thumb.
It’s such a silly thing to do,
as everybody knows.
So now instead of sucking it
I stick it in my nose.

My Normal Family

Image
By Kathy Kenny-Marshall

My daddy snores and sucks his toes.
My brother likes to lick his nose.
My doggy meows, my kitten barks.
My goldfish chases sticks in parks.
My sister walks while upside down.
My mother hops all over town.
Her skin is purple, don’t you know.
And I am green from head to toe.
My dad is red, my sister’s blue.
My brother’s yellow; yes, it’s true.
We all wear raincoats in the sun
And gobble lima beans for fun.
We’re very special, can’t you see?
We’re just a normal family!

Falling Asleep In Class

Image
I fell asleep in class today, as I was awfully bored. I laid my head upon my desk and closed my eyes and snored.

I woke to find a piece of paper sticking to my face. I'd slobbered on my textbooks, and my hair was a disgrace.

My clothes were badly rumpled, and my eyes were glazed and red. My binder left a three-ring indentation in my head.

I slept through class, and probably I would have slept some more, except my students woke me as they headed out the door.

Waves Of Fury

Image
Waving at beach, lapping at shore Cannot contain itself anymore.
Thunderous bolts fly overhead. Pretty display but not be mislead.
Sky opens up, Down falls heavy rain. There seems no hope for calmness again.
And in the middle  a ship does fall, pulling down captain shipmates and all.
Word left unspoken  by ones that have died slowly are said by the unruly tide.
The piers on the edge once, tall, strong and high - down on the bottom silently lie.
As the sea lies down, stable and flat, great clouds arrive where waves once sat.
Oceans hold beauty that captures its prey, still by night, yet roaring b day.
Some say they rule it. Some disagree. But one thing's for sure - the sea's captured me.

My Writing Today

Image
In the olden days, there was a mythical village named Waikikamukau. People roamed the streets at 6:00am and went out at some point at 6:00pm. Straight. There were big, tall, buildings that were a million storeys high. Cars were old-fashioned, all polished and clean. Everyone wore colourful clothing, even shoes. Although, some villagers wore black and white. There was also people who predicted the future. Like floods filling the streets, earthquakes separating the buildings, and tornados destroying the homes. Luckily, no one believed them.

One moon night, the giant moon rose on the horizon, Making the night blue. A festival happened near the main village, Faliti. Bonfires were made, for cooking pigs and other dead animals, people were talking about stuff, and everyone was happy. Except for one future-predictor (or meron).

“The moon will crack open!” yelled the Meron to the people, interrupting the fire display. “The moon will reach the Earth!”  rumored the Meron. The people murmured so…

Earth Song - Michael Jackson

(VERSE 1)
What about sunrise?
What about rain?
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain?

What about killing fields?
Is there a time?
What about all the things
That you said were yours and mine?

(INTRO)
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before?
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah

(VERSE 2)
What have we done to the world?
Look what we've done.
What about all the peace
That you pledge your
Only son?

What about flowering fields?
Is there a time?
What about all the dreams
That you said were yours and mine?

(INTRO)
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war?
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

(CHORUS)
Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaah

I used to dream
I used to glance
beyond the stars
Now I don't know
where we are
Although I know

(go to CHORUS)

(go to CHORUS x2)

(REFRAIN)
Hey, what about yesterday?
What about the seas?
The heav…

My Writing Today

On the day of Halloween, I came back from school. Skies were filled with blue, not a cloud in view. I was looking outside, no one on the roads. The wind was blowing nicely, like it was hitting me in the face. Realizing my mistake, we had no lollies, it was a little bad, because now trick or treaters now walk on the land. I’ve eaten all the lollies, that was a mistake, so we had to go out, the little hearts we could break.
At least 15 “Trick or Treaters” came up to the door, and I kept wondering, why not some more? My mum went out lied and said kindly, “Happy Halloween, but we have nothing.”. So, I had an idea, writing a letter saying “Sorry, but No Trick or Treat.” Before the night of Halloween. Trick or treaters marched out of their houses, wandering around, but as for me, I put my head back down. Vampires, Karate kids, princesses and zombies. I had no idea, they're coming for treats.
Then, out of nowhere, the moon was bursting up the sky, like toast, going as fast as a turtle, and…
