How The Chipmunk Got It's Stripes.

Long ago, the Earth was covered in darkness. None of the creatures living there knew what daylight looked like.
One day, all of the animals of the forest gathered together in a clearing. They wondered if it would be better to remain in darkness, or if it would be better to also have light. Deer, Chipmunk, Raccoon, Wolf, Bear, and many other creatures climbed to the top of the highest mountain. The mountain stood so tall that there were no trees on its top, and it was covered only with rocks. Millions of stars blinked in the dark sky overhead. The biggest and most powerful animal in the forest was the bear, and he was the first to reach the mountaintop. Bear stood on the highest peak, looked out over the forest below, and argued for remaining in darkness. He said that the creatures of the forest would be able to sleep better in darkness because there would be no light to keep them awake. Most of the other animals were afraid, and they agreed with Bear. Raccoon said that he did not mind the darkness because he was so smart that he could find plenty of food, even in the dark. Wolf was easy to please, too. She didn't mind the darkness because she could howl in darkness or in light.
But one animal did stand up to Bear. Chipmunk, the smallest of the animals, argued that it would be better to have both light and dark. Chipmunk was very clever. As Bear continued to argue for darkness, she made many good arguments for light.
Slowly, the night passed. Bear grew tired of talking, but Chipmunk chattered on and on, as if she had all of the energy in the world. As the other animals dropped off to sleep, one by one, Chipmunk kept arguing. Finally, the first sunrise ever seen by the animals appeared over the top of the mountain. They woke up and were amazed by what they saw.

Chipmunk began to dance from rock to rock. Bear became angry because he didn't get his way. He roared loudly and ran after Chipmunk. He chased Chipmunk all the way down the mountain. Bear was fast, and he reached out his giant paw to grab Chipmunk. Chipmunk got away, but not before Bear managed to scratch her back with his long claws. And that is why, to this day, you can see stripes on Chipmunk's back!

    o you know how blueberries grow? They grow on bushes. Each blueberry is small and round. Many blueberries can grow on one bush. At first, the blueberries are green. The green berries are not ready to eat yet. They need a lot of sun and rain to help them become fat and sweet. When the berries turn blue, they are ripe and ready to be picked.

Some farmers grow blueberries in big fields. The people who live nearby can earn money by helping to pick the blueberries. Each one takes a pail out to the field and fills it with blueberries. They work fast so that they can fill many pails. They want to earn as much money as they can. When they are done picking, their fingers are blue from the juice of the berries!

After the blueberries are picked, they are put into boxes and sent to stores. People buy the blueberries and take them home to eat. Some people like to wash the berries and eat them one by one. Other people like to cook with blueberries. They make blueberry muffins and pancakes.

Immersion Assembly.

Introduction:
On Monday the 16th of october it was time to go back to school. Also is was finally term 4 and the theme was Musical Madness. So in the morning the whole school had an a assembly all about making music, singing, and creating our own instruments with things  around us. So that is our theme for this term.

Paraghraph 1:
The whole school is going to be creating music and learning how to make some instruments with some things that they have never used before. So
Team 1 - Is doing an emotion thing how you like play cards but with different emotioned songs.

Team 2 - Was singing  a song with some instruments coming around and grooving into the song.

Team 3 - Well there one was beyond funny because they lip singed with different kind of songs when they were talking to each other.

Team 4-  Our team 4 teachers did like a karaoke car pull. It is some people are in a car and they turn on the radio. After that whatever song that comes on they lip sing to it. So that is what our team is doing for the term.

Paragraph 2:
So our team movie was all about a karaoke car pull. If you do not know what it is keep on reading. So when you are in a car with your friends and some music comes on they kind of lip sing to it. So that is what you are supposed to do in a karaoke car pull. I also thought it was a very cool movie about that karaoke car pull.


Paragraph 3:
I would want to do make my own instrument and make my own music. Also to make the instruments I would use some things around me and some things that have never used before.

Conclusion:
I think that the new theme for term 4 is very brilliant because we have not done a music kind of theme before. So I am very looking forward to the new term and the new topic Musical Madness.

Task Description: This is a writing recount about our new term that is called Musical Madness. So that is our new theme for term 4. Hope you enjoy,
God Bless you all

Bye Bye
