I made a Duplo crane but it wasn't very strong.  Then I watched the big crane that lifted Room 2 into its new place.  It had big weights on it so I put "weights" on my crane and made it stronger so it could lift heavy things too.  By Giovanni

What Ever Happened to Room Two?

Last night, did King Kong visit our school because a class got carried away?  Room two went from one side of the school to the other side.  King Kong would have had to step over the other classrooms.  Luckily he didn't crush them. By AJ and Giovanni

Greedy Cat and the Cat Door

Greedy Cat ate too much Christmas food and he got fat.  He got too fat for his cat door and the door got stuck on him like a hula hoop.  Dad got him doggy door.  Greedy Cat liked the doggy door because it was a bigger door and he could fit through it without getting stuck. We made some cats like Greedy Cat.  By Marie and Aaliyah

Double Take.

Mata and Marie came to school with a funny story.  Can you be a good detective and find the answer to the question at the end of the story?
"We went to church with Nana on Sunday.  There was a little girl sitting in front of us.  She turned around and looked at both of us.  She looked worried and said, "You've got the same face!" She was sort of right!"
Can you guess why?
