Do you remember your first day of kindergarten? Was it exciting, or were you nervous or anxious? Did you or your mother cry? Hopefully it was a great experience for you!

Friedrich Froebel started the first kindergarten in 1837 in Germany. It was very popular, beginning with a half day and soon becoming a full day, teaching children academics, and social interaction in a fun and educational manner.

The sight was majestic. It almost didn’t look real! It is the Grand Canyon!

Starting off its life as a flat-layered rock, the impact the Colorado River had on our great landmark is remarkable and unexplainable. The Colorado River cut 277 miles of beautiful canyon! It started its process millions of years ago, and it’s still going on today.

My Favorite Pets by Jeanne Birdsall

I loved the book “My Favorite Pets by Gus W. for Ms. Smolinski’s Class” by Jeanne Birdsall. It’s all about Gus, who lives on a farm with 17 sheep. The sheep are like his best friends, but they don’t talk and even though he has tried, Gus can’t get them to climb a tree, or ride a skateboard. Gus does fun things with the sheep like using one as an umbrella and he tries to get his little brother involved, but he doesn’t like it and cries a lot.

Did you celebrate the 4th last month? There are many people in the United States who do not understand why we celebrate the 4th of July. I have done some research to better understand this holiday. I found the history of the 4th of July, why and how we celebrate it, and some interesting facts about the holiday.

In 1776, Richard Henry Lee suggested that the 13 colonies come together to create their own nation separate from England. This huge meeting was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted.

My family took the Bottle Battle Zume Game to the beach with us this summer. We almost didn’t take it because my parents thought we wouldn’t have room in the car for it. As it turned out, it didn’t take up much space and we were all so happy we’d brought it. The game was lots of fun and we all played many hours on the beach with it. It was easy to set up, but my cousins and I used lighter plastic toys, instead of the bottles. It was easier for us to throw the disc and knock them down. When the adults played, they used the bottles that came with the game, and that worked well for them.
