We have just finished publishing our first stories for this school year! We have learned that good writer’s write what they know about and care about. We also learned that good writer’s include lots of sensory detail in their stories. That means author’s try to include descriptions of what they saw, heard, touched or smelled when they are writing their stories.
We hope you enjoy reading our stories!
Working Cattle by Colby H.
I went to McClain to work for my cousin Robert. It smelled liked rain when we went to work. The sun was a bright glowing orange. We were looking for bulls. We found them. They was hiding in the brush. Well it was hard to find them. I had to go down a mountain nobody went down before. We had to ride out ever pasture. It took nearly all day but we got it done. I hope I can do it again next year.
Runaway Horses by Cooper
One cold spring morning on Tongue River ranch, we sorted a bunch of cattle at the wagon. I could hear horses and cows nickering and bawling. There was a lot of cowboy with us. When we moved the horses, one of them got on a electric fence. It made all the horses run off. My horses wanted to go to but I just held him up.
Going Fishing by Neal
It was a cool summer afternoon in June. M y family and I went fishing at a small lake. It was a great day because we caught 16 fish. We had to throw them back in because they were too small.
Snakes by Kaleb
I like winter I like fall those snake aren’t out at all.
I hate snakes. Do you like snakes? They are scary and disgusting.
Slimey green brown as a bean.
Diamond Back rattle snake, King Cobra, Garden Snake, Grass snake too. Eeeewwww!
Cotton mouth. When they are outside get in the house!
Have you seen a King Cobra?
They make me freak out! That’s why I sneak out!
I bet they don’t even have any friends.
Their head is as flat as a pancake, but that’s just a risk I have to take if I choose not to hit him with a rake. Seeing him just makes me shake just like a little Rattle Snake.
Garden Snakes are big and little mean.
If a Garden Snake dares to come near me they’ll have a neck as flat as a pancake!
Me and My Grandma
One day me and my grandmother went to pick up rocks. It had rained two days before that and it was very muddy. We went outside and stared walking. When suddenly cooper thought he saw a snake. When we got to the lake we stated to pick up rocks again. We found some really neat rocks.
Fixing a Fence by Case
One hot summer afternoon me and my dad and Phil had to go fix a fence in the pasture. When the road got too bad we had to walked 15 miles. On the way we found post and wire. It took us 30 minutes to fix it.
My Boston Terrier by Ally
My bosten terrier’s name is tesey . She is soft and a great dog. When I bring her in the house, I let her sleep in my bed. She snores all the time and toots. I gave her a bath yesterday. I play with her when I am bored. She eats leaves and chews through the fence. She chases my cats, Fat Louie and Ranger. She does other funny things like jumps in the water bowl.
