The Penguin That Flies

The Penguin That Flies

By : Joey and Ashlyn


One day there was a penguin called Icy. One day Icy came across a unicorn. “Hi Uni.” Icy said. The unicorn shined its horn on Icy. Then she thought oh well that does not do anything. The nex tday  Icy had very small  wings. Then a cat walked along, meowing.


The cat started talking and the cat said “You have wings.” Icy was really surprised. Then Icy tries to walk over and starts Flying. Then Icy started asking for help Uni couldn’t help because she didn’t have full wings. Then It becomes night and Icy is still there. Icy says, “I need help.”  And everybody is there.  



Then uni and Cat come along. “CAAAAAAAT! UUUUNIIIIIII!” Icy screams. Then Icy starts thinking maybe Uni actually tried to make Icy fly. That’s just the thought….. But then Icy gets so scared and nobody knew that Icy was there.

The next day Icy is flying  then uni comes and starts flying to Icy and gets him  from the sky and brings him down  Uni saves the day.

What I Do In School

  What I do In School


My school’s schedule is… First we go to our homeroom and choose our lunch  and get ready for the day. Type on Qwerty Town. It is a typing website. Then we go out to the hallway and switch to our reading  classes. When we are in the class for a half an hour  we do kidbiz. (Which is a website where we read article and answer a question about it.)  After that we do  rotations in the rotation we do computer activities such as blogging. We also do classwork.


When we finish all of that then we fill in our agendas  then we line up in the hallway.  When we go in our homeroom sometimes we plug our computer in for some specials then we go to specials.  Specials are music , library, stem  and gym we go  to all of those but on different days.  After we go to content we do a lot of different things in content  we do it for 25 minutes.  Later we go to recess then lunch.


Later we go to math we do rotations sometimes in the rotations we  do extra math  and we do different math papers. When we do two and a half we go to recess again come back in and finish math. Then the kids that switch for math come back.  Then we pack up for the day and leave.  The day starts at    9:00 and ends at   3:30.

This is my favorite video.  My favorite video was the second because it taught me things I didn’t  know so that really helped because It taught me something.  It taught me that when I was born that all happened to me.  Also I liked the second video because I didn’t  really learn  anything in the first video the second I learned and understood.

Expedition Name Text Title
Machu  Picchu Lost City


What do you SEE?

(Describe what you see using WOW words)

I saw tons of really high mountains.   Lots of people exploring. I saw a house made out of just stone.  I saw different villages.

What do you THINK?

(As you are experiencing VR tell your audience in detail what you are thinking using sequence words. First, Next, Last)

First I thought it was amazing.  Next I thought what if I lived up there.  Last I thought why people lived on a mountain.

What do you WONDER?

(During your expedition what are you wondering about? What questions come to your mind?)

I wonder how long it took to build the village.  And how many people lived in the villages. And how many people lived in one house.

(Write a reflection to extend your thinking i.e. What are you still curious about? What more do you want to know?)

I wonder what they would eat like if they  would hunt. And how long would they live for for living on a mountain.

    Is deforestation an issue kids should worry about. Yes I do think that kids should worry about deforestation. I think that because if it happens then our earth couldn’t breath and then we could die.  And people would disagree because it’s how they provide to their families and they can grow crops there.  There are 2,000 to 3,000 cancer fighting plants in the rainforests and we should keep them because they might do things for us.


Another reason I think that deforestation should stop is because if you cut down the trees it won’t be good  for the animals that live there.  One reason kids should worry about deforestation is because an estimated 18 million acres of the world’s forests are destroyed. That is the size of south carolina.  And it would take less than 100 years to destroy all the forests. I wouldn’t use this as an excuse that they are growing crops for their families because they could get already `open land.
