My Trip to Disneyland

I was happy when I went to Disneyland. I got on rides. I got in an elevator and it dropped down and everybody was screaming. I ate some crabs. I think I will go back.

My Best teacher

My favorite teacher was Mrs. Webster. She was nice to me. She sometimes let us have extra recess. If you were good my teacher would give you a "Caught Being Good" paper. If you got in trouble my teacher would tell you to stop it but you wouldn't get in trouble. My teacher was fun.

My Mean Teacher

In kindergarten I had a mean teacher. I was scared. Suddenly I went there. She made us work really hard on the first day. On the second day she made us write our ABC's all day without recess. She never let us have recess. On the last day she let us have recess.
