The Cat Rescue

by Nina Giddings
(5th grade)

When I saw the cats on the side of the road, my heart was flooding with joy. My family was in a circle around the cats. One was small and had bluish eyes and tiny paws. The other had green eyes and its fur was ruffled. We assumed it was a boy and the other a girl.

In the distance there was a red barn. We maybe thought they came from there. Next to the barn there was a field with a cow in it.

The cats were staring at us through the dry grass. I prepared myself and reached forward. The cat leaped away - - it seemed camouflaged in the grass like a chameleon.

Morgan leaped forward and caught the bigger one. The smaller cat leaped into my hands. Since we were traveling back from Lewiston, we had my bunny in his cage in the car. So we took him out and put the cats in the cage. My bunny's name is Fluffy. He sat in my lap the whole way home. Back in McCall, we took the cats to our house and adopted them!


Shocking Day in the Woods

by Gabriell Shafer
(3rd grade)

As I was running through the forest, I saw two big eyes staring at me. I froze in shock as I noticed a huge animal staring from behind a rock. Everything was still.

At first, I thought that it was a lynx. I tried to sneak away, but it kept looking at me. It felt like I was there for an hour. Finally, it took off.

It was a huge owl. It grabbed at a squirrel and ripped it off the tree. Opal, my dog, nipped my arm as leaves flew everywhere. I heard the owl hoot, and it was gone.


Aquaball

by Camryn McKenna
(5th grade)

As I entered the ball, all I could hear was a big splash. I saw a big fruit tree on the side of the hill: it was bright red. The water was as cold as ice. I felt like my limbs were chopped off. I tried to stand, but I slipped and fell as quickly as I got up. When I looked down, five kids were lying under me on the ground. All the men pushed me up the hill, and I rolled down again.

The Aquaball is a big ball full of air. You put a little water in the ball and roll it down the hill from inside. I was at a cool farm on Maui that had a zipline and Aquaball. My family and I did both. I brought two friends: Ani and Cohen. I had so much fun. The best part of my day was rolling down the hill in an Aquaball.


Joy

by Nina Giddings
(5th grade)

Dry grass
crunching, cackling:
emerald and gold crickets
hop through brown grass.
Smells of ripe apple
drip out of orchards.
Wind howls
like a distant wolf;
golden bright sun
blazes over
crisp country land.


Surprise!

by Maddison Keplinger
(3rd grade)

When I woke up at 5:27, it was as quiet as a mouse. I hopped out of bed and dressed myself, then went to the kitchen to eat breakfast. When I finished eating, my mom woke up, so I hid in the kitchen cabinet.

My mom looked at the table and asked, "Why is Maddison's plate out?" As she came two steps away from my cabinet, I jumped out and said, "
