This placed him at the head of the committee. I had the next highest number, and that placed me second. The committee met and discussed the subject and then appointed Mr. Jefferson and me to make the draught.
Instructions : Write a story about what you would do at the carnival. Be descriptive using sight, smell and touch.
If I went to the carnival, I would see rides and games, smell food, taste cotton candy. I would hear people yell and shout words. I would ride every ride except the flipping ones. It is fun and I can see that slow rides are boring. I won’t ride those but Cera will.

Instructions: Make your own holiday story with characters and a plot that reveals characteristics about them. (BrainQuest)
Once upon a time three friends went ghost hunting, but they found more than ghosts. There were zombies, skeletons, witches, and giant spiders all in one place wanting to take revenge. They will destroy the world and make it a haunted one. The kids went into a fright and fled to tell the town. They did not believe the kids until it was too late. When the attack occurred, the town was terrified. They fled and all that was left were three brave kids turned zombies forever lost to time.
Teacher Commentary: This assignment receives a 0. I like the creativity, but the goal was to create memorable characters and you made forgettable characters. You gave them no name. They have no characteristic except for being maybe brave.
