Gorillas are members of the great ape family. Gorillas live in Africa. Some live in the mountains. Others live in the forests, swamps and lowlands. Gorillas eat ants, stems, snails, insects and leaves.
Gorillas can use a twig to fish for ants. Gorillas also use smells to silently warn other gorillas of danger.
Did you know that baby gorillas don’t crawl until they are two months old?

Pumpkin pie is good.
Use a pumpkin from a farm.
Many pumpkins do not have the same shape.
Play with your friends.
Kids love pumpkin pies.
Inside a pumpkin is cool.
Now we can eat pumpkin pie.
An acrostic poem written by Valeria
Pick pretty pumpkins.
Under the vines.
My pumpkins are the best.
Pick one you like.
Kids like my pumpkins.
Imagine how good they will be.
Now sit back and relax or eat the pumpkin.
An acrostic poem written by Dana
Under the leaves is my pumpkin.
Many seeds in a pumpkin.
Pick up pumpkins.
Kids go to the patch.
Imagine I have 100 pumpkins.
Now my house is filled with pumpkins.

One sunny day Bella the two months old Husky puppy and Jacob the two years old Golden Retriever were getting ready to go to the park. They rode in the car to go to the Best Dog Tricks’ Contest. Bella and Jacob were excited, nervous and a little scared because they had never done their tricks in front of an audience.
When they got to the park Bella and Jacob saw a giant trophy shaped like a bone sitting on a table. They started barking and wagging their tails because they wanted to be in first place. There were a lot of other dogs at the contest. All the dogs wanted to win the trophy.
Bella and Jacob got their number and waited for the contest to start. The announcer called all the dogs who entered the Frisbee throw. Jacob hurried to the start line and Bella told Jacob to have good luck. Jacob ran and jumped high and he caught it. The audience cheered.
Soon it was Bella’s turn. She raced to chase the Frisbee. Bella jumped in the air, caught the Frisbee but when she came down she fell into a hole. Bella started to whine and whimper. Jacob hurried to Bella and asked, “Are you okay?” Bella told Jacob that her leg was hurting. Jacob asked Bella if she could walk on her sore leg. Bella tried to walk on her leg, but she fell again.
One day I went to watch the news. I saw that a tornado was coming. So we went to my mom’s car and drove to visit my dad’s friend.
Three hours later we went back home and then we saw that a tree had fallen on the roof of our house! We called the builders and they said they would fix it.
We had to live in a hotel. We get to move back in our house on October 9. We are very happy.

One day my dad told me that we were going to get a puppy because my cousin was giving us one.
The puppy was a Dalmatian. She was one month old and I was three years old. She was so tiny.
I love my puppy. Well, sometimes she doesn’t listen. Now she is eight and I am seven. I love her. Her name is Laki.

One day after school I found my stuffed wolf. Then five minutes later I asked my mother if I could give it to my first grade teacher. She said, “Yes.”
So the next day I gave it to my first grade teacher and she was so surprised. She didn’t know what to call her.
A couple of days later, she called her Red because she had a red tongue sticking out.
