Jelly and peanut butter is great!
On the football team
Silly sometimes

The fun never stops

CONSTELLATION TALES

***The students made a hundred dots randomly onto a piece of paper. Afterwards, they were directed to find at least 2 pictures they can make by connecting some of the dots. From these pictures, the class made up constellation names and stories on how they became a part of the night sky: Long ago there was a kite named Catlin. She lived in Africa. Catlin flew to the United States of America to see her friend, Lucky the Ice Cream Cone. Lucky lived in Florida.

When Catlin saw Lucky, she was very happy. They played for hours. Then one day, Lucky was eaten and Catlin was so sad.

Later on, a little boy ran up to Catlin and started playing with her. They had lots of fun. But then, he let go of Catlin and floated up to the sky and was stuck between the stars. Along with Lucky, Catlin became a constellation. However, Catlin and Lucky never saw each other again.

Long ago, there lived Duckey the Duck and Scalases the Fish. They lived in the motel land of the gods. There was always enough to eat. Everybody was happy. However, one day, the gods had a fight with Haies for weeks. There was no food to eat and water to drink or swim in.

So Ducky went to Scalases. "We must do something," he said. "Well," said Scalases, "We could go to the gods. But we won't be able to return." Duckey replied,"If we don't do this...we and all the animals will die."

The next day, they flew to the gods. Zeus, the Head God, eliminated Haies. He was also so happy that he saw Duckey and Scalases. Zeus decided to return happiness to the land. Then he placed Duckey and Scalases in the sky where they remain today. That is the story of Duckey the Duck and Scalases the Fish.
