It was a lightly snowy day. The wind is slowly whistling by. I walk down an alleyway with excitement. I see walls with names and missing posters. I walk to a wall of names. I picked up a charcoal crayon and wrote my name. I heard a noise coming from behind me. I turned around and saw a doll that was dressed exactly like my outfit. I quickly ran across the road to get to the doll. I notice that the doll is a creepy store.
I turned around and looked at a wall of names. I turned back to the doll and the doll disappeared. I tried to open the door but the door wouldn’t open. I got angry and picked up a pile of snow and turned it into a snowball.

I chucked the snowball at the door and walked away. Suddenly I hear a doorbell ring. I turned around and the door was open. I entered the creepy store. I saw the doll standing on a red comfortable table. I walked closer and closer and saw a little doll riding a tricycle. I looked up and the doll was gone again.

I tried to look for the doll but I could not find it. I look in a cupboard full of other dolls.
I found the doll standing next to a green doll holding an umbrella. I climbed up and touched the doll.

All of a sudden the doll had trapped me inside its body. I was breathing so hard out of fright realizing that I turned into a doll. I was scared. Would I turn back into human form or that I would stay as a doll forever.

Socrates

 Socrates

Who is Socrates?

Socrates was a Greek philosopher from Athens who they think founded Western philosophy. Socrates was born in 670 BC and died 399 BC.

The death of Socrates in 399 BCE, was a poisoning by drinking hemlock. He died because he was found guilty of corrupting the youth. 

Socrates quotes:

 

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. This means that you need to be kind all the time because you don’t know what other people have going on in their life.

 

Wonder is the beginning of wisdom. This means it is important to ask questions and wonder all the time to become wise about the world.

High diving giraffes

 I walk with my long legs into a infinite stretch of white shiny tiles. I stopped at a 

camera and start staring at it. I swing my long tail with brown hair at the end.

 I’m feeling excited  to walk with my friends. Sione is in front of me, walking with a long step. His tail is wiggling back and forwards. Jacob is behind me. I can hear him clip clopping. We all continued to walk in a line like soldiers.

A big loop was close by. It takes hours to get to the top.

At the top, a diving board is nearby and my friend Spelman is hanging upside down. I realize that we are about to jump into a giant swimming pool with dark blue lanes. It  is my turn. I quickly run fast and grab my friend’s chin and jump.

I start to fall quickly, I relax my body and it feels like I am falling from the sky.

 

I dive into the water and swim quickly up to the surface. I walk to the top again. At the top there is a second diving board and this time it was my friend Eli hanging ready to grab us. It is my turn again.  I dive into the water like a big blue dolphin. It is fun. We all swim to the surface and quickly walk to the side of the pool to drink the chlorinated water.
