The First Day Of School by Muntasir Bhuiyan Class 3-204

At the first day of school I was happy to see my teacher was Ms. Santella because she is really nice to me at school. She never screams at us. I felt happy because some of my friends were in my class. I also felt sad because most of my friends were in Ms. Miciotta’s class. Even my best friend, Ahmed went to Ms. Miciotta’s class. Third grade is kind of easy so far. But, reading and writing is hard for me. That is what is easy and hard about third grade. At the first day of school I did not understand what compatable numbers are. Then, I got the hang of it. Later in the day, it became easy to me. I was so excited, after lunch, we did math and played a game called 7-up. School was fun in the first day of school. I was wondering if the Brooklyn Knight was coming or not. That was my first day of school.

In the Garden with My New Class 1-101 by Mrs. Berretta

The Garden Visit

by Genevieve Berretta

On a bright and sunny day with a bit of a chilly breeze, Class 1-101 visited the Peace Garden. We were on a hunt for seeds.

Mrs. Berretta showed us the milkweed plants that are growing tall in our garden. Milkweed plants are the only plant that the Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on! They have little orange and yellow flowers on the tippy top. They also have long stems with leaves and the best part is that the milkweed plants have seedpods! The most amazing part is that in the seedpod there are hundreds of tiny seeds. Jayla noticed that each seed had a little feather attached. This little feather helps the seed pod fly into the wind to find a new space to grow. Seeds are to plants like babies are to humans. When they get too big for the plant it is time to find a new place to grow and make more plants of their own.

Each child in Class 1-101, received their own seed to blow into the wind. Some children made wishes. Abdul whispered, “I hope you have super powers!” I smiled and said, “I hope with the: sun, rain, oxygen and our love they grow to help more humans and more Monarch butterflies live!”

A Sunny Day Spelling Story by Jayla

One day it was sunny and my mom and I went to the park. When we got there my mom pushed me on the swings. It sent higher and higher and higher. It made my stomach feel good. I ran to go on the slide and I slid down fast. Then it was getting late so Mommy and I went home. I told my mommy, “I had a great time. Can we go again? I really like the park!”
