Art class should be longer than all other
specials. There never seems to be enough time to
get our pictures done. If we had more time in
art class everyone would do a better job on their
pictures and we would learn more. Art is very
important and we should have the time we need to
finish a project.

One day a beautiful princess was walking down the
street hoping to find her prince.   She looked
high and low and finally gave up.   On her way
home she found a lonely little frog.   She picked
him up and began to talk to him telling him all
her problems.   When she was done she said
good-bye to the frog and gave him a kiss on top
of his head.   Before her very eyes appeared the
man of her dreams and they lived happily ever
after.

The old house smelled musty and decayed as I went
inside. It obviously hadnt been cared for in
quite a while. The wallpaper was faded and
peeling. Even though it was a beautiful sunny
day outside, it was hard to see inside the house
because of all the dirt that covered the windows.

Every child should play a sport.   When you are
on a team you learn to get along with everyone
and work together for a common goal.   Team work
is the best lesson anyone can learn.   This is
why I believe every child should be on a team.

Thomas was not making honor roll this time and he
was not going to be allowed to do all the things
he wanted to do. Poor Thomas! He would just have
to study harder and get back on the honor roll.

The spider is considered an arachnid and not an
insect. This is because insects have only six
legs, while arachnids have eight legs. Spiders
range in size from tiny dots to the size of a
large grapefruit. Many are colored in shades of
black or brown, but some are brightly colored.
