For our first experiment this year we wanted to find out which bubble solution would produce the longest lasting bubbles. We made a glycerine, soap and water solution in our classroom. We also had a store bought bubble solution.
We went outside and blew bubbles using each of the solutions. We did two trials. We discovered that our glycerine solution made the longest lasting bubbles. We also learned that bubbles have three layers – soap, water and soap. They surround the air which is in the middle of the bubble.

One day I lost my phone in my house. Here’s how it was. I was sleeping in my bed. When the sun came up, I woke up and I looked under my pillow for my phone, but I could not find it. Later, when I got home from school, my dad was there and I asked him if he had my phone. He said, “No.” I said, “I’m going to ask Mom if she has my phone.” She said, “No,” so I checked in my mom’s bag and it was there! I said with much happiness, “I found it!”

One day I lost my doll. I was so sad because she was the first toy my Grandma gave me. I looked in the pool and I looked in the kitchen. I found my doll in the laundry! I forgot that I played with it outside. My mom had washed it because it was dirty.

That was why my dog was barking. He had seen the ghost. Suddenly, the ghost was gone. I was happy that I had found my dog and that the ghost had left.

I am Yasmin Reyes.
I wonder how my future is going to be.
I hear what people want to say.
I see good not evil.
I want everyone in peace not violence.
I pretend that everyone is happy in the world.
I feel I will change the world in some good way.
I worry I will never follow my dreams.
I cry for what I fight for.
I understand I am not perfect.
I say we fight for what is right.
I dream the world will be in peace.
I am Yasmin Reyes

This is George. He is a good little monkey and always curious. One day George and the man with the yellow hat were walking around the city. They saw a big uppercase Y hidden in the trees. They started walking closer to it. Ten seconds later, angry birds flew through the sky and attacked them. George was so scared that he climbed up the tree. He saw the slingshot and jumped on it. The slingshot shot him all the way to Loch Lomond School. He banged into the white brick.
After a few minutes, he felt better. He looked everywhere and then he found a door. He opened the door. He saw Mr. Nowak going to Mrs. Dominick’s classroom. George was curious. George followed Mr. Nowak. Mr. Nowak was telling the class to do painting. One minute later… they started painting. George opened the door. He looked around the classroom and accidentally knocked into a desk. He dropped everything. George ran like a maniac out the door.
Next, he heard music. He followed the music and it led him to Ms. Miller’s class. He grabbed the door and opened it. Mrs. Taylor looked at him and said, “George, do you want to play the tambourine?” George said, “Yes.” He played with the tambourine. Suddenly, there was a big commotion so George ran away.
He found the cafeteria and went in. They forgot to close the place where you pick up your food, so George went in. He found a knife and some sausages. He chopped the sausages into smithereens. George ate all the little pieces.
Mrs. Werle came into the cafeteria and said, “George, please come into my office.” Mrs. Werle asked George, “Can you clean up my office, please?” George said, “Yes” and he cleaned up her desk. At the end of the day, the man with the yellow hat was waiting outside the school. They went in their car and drove away to their house.

This is George. He is a good little monkey and always curious. One day the man with the yellow hat won a motorcycle. George asked the man with the yellow hat if they could go to Loch Lomond School. The man with the yellow hat said. “Yes, let’s go there right now.” So, they rode the motorcycle to Loch Lomond.
When they got there, George went into the school. George saw Mrs. Wright’s class. He followed them to their classroom. They were correcting their problem of the day. George wanted to help. He got a pencil and a green journal off someone’s desk and wrote in it. Then that person said, “HEY!” George got scared and he dashed out of the room.
He ended up at P.E. He went in the gym. He saw people doing rotations. He wanted to do something, too. He went in the closet and got everything out of the closet. Then Mr. C. said loudly, “WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED HERE?” George got scared and ran out of the P.E. room and ended up at Art.
Then he went in the art room and he saw everybody painting. George wanted to paint, too. He painted on the walls. When Mr. Nowak came, he asked, “What happened?” The class shrugged. When George heard Mr. Nowak, George gasped. Then he got a sponge and cleaned the walls.
When George was done, the bell for dismissal rang. George went outside and he saw the man with the yellow hat. Then they both went home on the motorcycle. George had lots of fun at Loch Lomond.

A tall tale written with love especially for Mrs. Blaemire’s 4th grade students.
On Thursday at Loch Lomond School all the 4th grade students had to take their reading SOL. Everyone was nervous but they knew they had worked hard all year.
When they arrived at school, a breakfast banquet was set up in the cafeteria. The pancakes were stacked 50 feet high. The bacon was in a pan as large as the table. There was 100 gallons of syrup for the pancakes. What everyone did not know was that the syrup contained a magic potion that would enable all the students who had worked hard this year to get Passed Advance on their test.
When they went back to the classroom, all the students got ready for the test. When they logged into the computer, everyone gasped because there were 5,000 questions to answer! The students were undaunted and they immediately set to work.
All the strategies they had learned this year popped into their heads. They knew all the answers. It took only a short time to answer all 5,000 questions.
When the students found out their scores, everyone earned a Passed Advance. They celebrated with a huge party. Mrs. Werle bought 2,000 pizzas, 500 bottles of juice and 2,200 cupcakes. They decided that the SOLs were not so bad after all.
On Wednesday night, my dad and I went to Billy Beez. I went to the ball room to play with Jay, another friend. We battled dad and an enemy. That is when the epic adventure began.
Jay was going to get some balls but to his surprise 100 balls discharged from the ball tubes. The balls blasted Jay. We knew it was the enemy.
Once we could get some rest I ventured down to floor 1. I slid on some balls, accidentally making a ball tidal wave that covered the entire mall!
I chased the enemy to the huge slide. He went down the slide, flew to Asia and came back! It was a wild night at Billy Beez. I asked my dad if we could come back. He answered, “Yes.” It was a night with a lot of commotion.

0ne day my Mom, Dad and my brothers went to Wal-Mart. I bought 10,000,000 bottles of water. I went to my house. I drank 5,000,000 bottles of water.
I felt sick! My belly was as big as a giant balloon. My brothers tapped on my belly and it exploded! I was in 1,000 pieces.
My mom picked up all the pieces and put me in the recycle bin.
