Handy Howard Poems

Limerick

Luke Harold liked to study weather

He wrote that some clouds looked like a feather

He had written a famous report of their new names

While his opponent’s went into flames

They will probably never get together

By Summer S.

Haiku  

The clouds have some names

Luke Harold gave them that thing

Clouds are very special

By Summer S.

Sonnet

Luke Howard was born in London, England

Mr. Howard liked to study the clouds

But, His dad didn’t want him to be lazy

So then he worked in a chemical shop

For a long, long, long, long, long, long while

Then joined a club that talked about science

He gave the clouds names on a short report

Cirrus, Cumulus, Stratus, and some more

Everyone thought he was brilliant, sure

But there were still many competitors

And they changed the names a lot, quite sadly

So now we know more than he named

Howard had named seven cloud types that day

But now there is ten, in the modern time

By Summer S. and Mae B.

Astonishing Abraham Lincoln

Some information from this website.  The rest we already knew.

Abraham Lincoln was the best president that had ever lived.  These are reasons why.  But before we start, try to think of why another president is better…. Exactly, you can’t.

Abe Lincoln is the best president because he threw slavery out the door.  (He got rid of slavery)  Before he was president, there were African American slaves that the other presidents before him never freed.  The slaves were treated harshly and unfair.  But Mr. Lincoln changed that.

Another reason that Abraham Lincoln was the best president ever was because he directed the Civil War.  The Civil War was the war were the south part of our country was fighting to keep slavery and the north was fighting to get rid of it.  Lincoln fought with the north and helped them win.  Before the war even began he tried to make it a law that slavery wasn’t allowed, but the South still disagreed so they had to fight.

A last reason why Abraham Lincoln was the best president was because he didn’t kill himself by getting old.  He was murdered.  Then his wife proclaimed that the most horrible place in the world was the pretty pretty Ford’s Theater.  Ka-pow!!!!!!

Those are some of the MANY reasons that Abe Lincoln is the best president that this world has ever seen!  By Summer and Mae

THANKS FOR READING!!!!!

Spectacular Sergeant Stubby

Before we start, almost all information from this website.  The rest is probably made up.  By Summer and Mae.

Sergeant Stubby is a mix of a Boston Round Head, American Bull Terrier, and a Boston Bull Terrier.  He was born on July 21st 1916.  Stubby was found while wandering the campus Yale University in Connecticut while the 102nd Infantry was training.  The puppy stayed with them as they drilled, he learned bugle calls, drills, (like intruder drills and stuff) and even how to salute! One soldier, Corporal Robert Conroy, who before worked at a bakery called Sweets By Summer became fond of little Stubby.

When it came time for the soldiers to sail away, Robert hid Stubby on board the troop ship.  As they were getting off the ship, he hid Stubby in his coat without notice.  Only his best friend, James Salsa, asked why he was bending over so weirdly.  So he told him what he was doing and that he better not tell Captain Coo-Koo.  James agreed.  Once they got off the ship, Stubby fell from Robert’s coat for everyone to see.  Oops.  But when Stubby did his cutie salute, everybody wanted him to join the United States Army, even Captain Coo-Koo!

A couple of days passed and it was almost time for World War l.  They all got trained hard and well, including Stubby.  When the war started, Stubby marched around like a trained soldier, and that’s what he became.  In Stubby’s whole career, he served for 18 months, 4 offensives, and 17 battles.  At the end of his third battle, he gained the name Sergeant Stubby.

When Sergeant Stubby came home, he became a celebrity, and marched in and normally led many parades all over the country.  He also met many presidents like Calvin Coolidge, Warren G. Harding, and Woodrow Wilson.  And then in 1921 General John J. Pershing presented Sergeant Stubby a gold medal from the Humane Education Society, which was the subject of a famous photograph.  And then again in 1921, he became the Georgetown Hoyas’ team mascot.  His job would be to get a football at halftime and nudge it around the field as an amusement to the audience.

Unfortunately, Sergeant Stubby died in 1926 while sleeping.  After his death, he was preserved with his skin mounted on a plaster cast, and presented to the Smithsonian in 1956.

Thank-you for your service Sergeant Stubby!  😉

Mae+Summer Express At Blue Ball Elementary News Article

                                                 Mae+Summer Express At Blue Ball Elementary

We’ll be talking about an event at Blue Ball Elementary school called Walk Run Jog (WRJ).  It is a field where we walk, run, jog, skip, etc, on a field at the school playground.  Read on to find out more!

We go around the field to earn tickets.  The tickets look like this:                   win_20161028_095130-2

 

We have to go around the cones on the field.  There is always a lady standing at the end of the lap with a bag full of tickets.  She is very nice.  Every morning we can get our tickets signed by the teacher.  We have charts.  You give your teacher a ticket and your chart and she\he will sign one spot and take the ticket.

Each grade has a WRJ prize day.  You can go to the prize day if you have twelve or more tickets signed onto your chart.  Prize day is usually held in the gym.  There are tons of pens, pencils,  sticky eyeballs, small stuffed animals,  bouncy balls, and other small items.  If you just bring in tickets, then you can’t get prizes.  They have to be signed onto your paper so that everyone knows that you didn’t just steal them.

Now it’s time to talk about our field.  The field that we exercise around has shrunk this year.  It has shrunk because workers used some of it to create more parking-lot for the teachers and helpers.  If you complete 4 laps around the field, you would have exercised for about a mile.  The school has someone to come and cut the grass every now and then.  When he/she is done cutting the grass, there are usually big grass clumps on the ground, so it wouldn’t be the time to play on it.

We can do WRJ at 3 times during the school day.  We can do WRJ in the morning (if it’s not rainy and wet) after we visit our classrooms and put our stuff down.  We can also do WRJ during our lunch recess.  Lunch recess is 10 minutes long, so you could probably fit one or two laps in before we line up to go in for lunch.  Lastly, we can do WRJ at our bigger recess that we call Break.  Break is 20 minutes long, which means that if you stay focused, you could probably do around 4-6 laps before we go back inside.

That about ends our talk about Walk Run Jog.  I hoped that you learned something!
