Nebraska Nature

Nebraska Nature

The weather changes a lot
To sunny warm days
To snow days
Hills and grass cover the ground
Flowers and streams
Animals and also bees
Corn fields all around
Farms here and there
Clouds fulling the sky
Stars glittering up high
I love Nebraska nature

Basketball

Basketball is a fun sport
You play it on the court
Remember to have fun
And always outrun
The other team
We will always have a dream
To win together 
Forever

Time is a bomb

Time is a bomb

Ticking
Time goes by fast
Blow up
everything gone
trying to slow down
in a hurry
 big or small
trying to escape

Found Poem

Brick walls will try to stop you,
 But you will accomplish to get over them
Teamwork you will need,
Because you do it together
Learning can be hard,
But then you can teach it
You have to care and love;
Have wisdom and tell the truth
Work hard,
Be good,
Luck is true,
Never give up,
no matter what it is

Summer

Sunshine
Under the shady trees
Making friends
Mowing
Excited to go camping
Riding four wheelers

Poem

Makenna
It means funny, strong, kind
It is the number seven
It is like the bright sun
It is going camping
It is the memory of my cousins
Who taught me games and riding four wheelers
When we go camping with each other
My name is Makenna 
It means fun and important

Teamwork

Makenna
Period 4
English


Teamwork is very important. Teamwork doesn’t have an “I” in it. We work together. As a team, we don’t blame others and count it as the whole team. When you work together, the team is very successful. My team always keeps our heads up high and we are very positive. We try our best as a team or as a family. Teamwork is not always in sports, it can also be in other activities. Teams always have to remember what teamwork means.

Freedom


Do you know what freedom is? Freedom is having rights. We should thank all of the soldiers that have served and are serving now. Without their sacrifices, we would not have freedom. Freedom is very important to us Americans. Not everybody gets to have freedom. Soldiers are really brave to do such an important job. I have personal connections with soldiers, I know the definition of freedom, and I know words and phrases of freedom.
Freedom is liberty, sacrifice, and choices. Liberty is a way of life, behavior, or being free. Sacrifice is giving up something for the sake of someone else. Choices are to make a decision between two or more possibilities. Freedom is very costly. We are thankful that brave people have stood up to have rights and protect others. Freedom also means to have “control of yourself” and  it means to have independence. “ A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.” 
My grandpa and great grandpa were soldiers. I also have a cousin who is in the National Guard now. This means a lot to me. They fought for everyone including me. They knew they had to do it, for the freedom. I thank them and I also support them. They were very brave to do their jobs. My grandpa was in the National Guard and my great grandpa was in World War II.
Freedom has a lot of symbols, phrases, and words to describe it. Like our flag with red, white, and blue. The American flag is a strong symbol. Another common phrase is “Freedom is not free.” Like I said before freedom is very costly. Our country symbol is the eagle, so is my school. To me the eagle is a symbol of strength. 

Freedom is very important to us Americans. Without the sacrifices made by American soldiers, we wouldn't have our freedom. It is important to honor and respect soldiers from the past and present. They are all heroes. Thank you for your service.

Ghost story


                         

     Have you ever saw a ghost in a public school? Well, at OHS there is a ghost in the library! This ghost is not like the rest. Her name is Cindy Wells. No one knows why she is here. She wears a white lacy dress with black slip-on shoes. She also has white, long, frizzy hair and black eyes. Her skin looks pale and almost looks like it is glowing. She is very skinny and has sharp yellow teeth. Cindy has glasses that are on the tip of her long nose. The room is cold because that is a sign that there is a ghost in the room. Everyone is scared of her. There is no librarian that works there because she had quit because of the fright of the ghost.
     Cindy the ghost likes to read during her free time. She rearranges the books and mixes them all up because she likes to joke around and trick people. There is a wooden rocking chair in the corner of the library that she loves to rock in. Sometimes you can’t see her, so the chair looks like it is rocking with no one in it. At night, she throws books and papers all over the room. She changes her mood to sad, happy, and angry all of the time.
     One time I went into the library with my friend Makenzie because we needed some books for an assignment. We saw Cindy in her rocking chair and she was crying and screaming. We dashed to a row of books and hid behind them. We could hear her footsteps coming toward us. We didn't want to stand up because then she would see us, so we crawled to another book shelf. We were one book shelf away from the books we needed. Cindy was knocking the books down to try to see where we were. She was furious that she couldn't find us. So then she was knocking the rows of books down and throwing books around the room. A book landed right by me, so that meant she was really close. We were very scared. We crawled to one more shelf and we found our books. She was standing right behind me. She was breathing on me. I looked back and I stared into her black eyes. Her eyes seemed to get bigger and bigger. We could see that she had sharp teeth. Makenzie was so scared she chucked a dictionary at Cindy’s head, but the book just went straight through her. She just laughed at that like it was the funniest thing ever. Her laugh is very screechy and high pitched. We screamed as loud as we could. She kept getting closer to us. All of the sudden, I hear the door open. There was my teacher standing there telling us to hurry up. The weird thing is, the ghost disappeared, the shelves were standing up, and the books were neatly placed on the shelves. Our teacher told us to get off the floor and gave us detentions. He said no excuses either. So we got in trouble even though we didn't do anything. He said he could hear us laughing and running around, even though we didn’t. We told him we didn't do that and that the books were everywhere and the shelves were knocked over because of Cindy. He did not believe us. Right when I walked out of the room, I looked back.  There was Cindy, laughing in her rocking chair and pointing at me.

Halloween At Hogwarts

Makenna Fowler
Period 4

Halloween at Hogwarts

My name is Makenna Fowler and I am a new student at Hogwarts. As I walked into the Great Hall, I could smell very strange and some delicious smells. The hall was pretty dark with candles flickering everywhere on the four tables. We had to wear hair-raising costumes because we are going to have a contest of who had the best costume. I had a scary mask on with popping red eyes and a green face. I was frightened when I walked in because a screeching noise from a creepy, ugly witch came from right behind me and swooped up towards the tall ceiling. I could feel her shirt scraping on my head. The ceiling had large spiders crawling and whispering. I could hear them saying my name in a moaning sound. I could see all the spiders staring at me with their red, glowing eyes. I had never saw anything like that before. A skeleton poked me and demand me to sit down. I was so spooked. He was a servant giving people drinks. I sat down by my friend Harry Potter. He had the most horrifying mask ever! The mask had blood everywhere and scary sharp teeth! Anyway, right above me was a chandelier that was a pumpkin. I thought any second it could fall straight down on me. There was plates and cups sitting on the table mat. The table mat was just plain black. 
The plates all of the sudden filled with food. Chicken noodle soup, fried chicken, ham, mashed potatoes, pudding, pumpkin pie, and lots more. There was a strange brownish green glob on my plate. I had no clue what it was. I took my spoon and played with it for a while. I shoved some in my mouth. It was so terrible! It tasted like old bitter cheese with too much salt in it. Other wise, the food was great and very delicious. The skeleton came to me and handed me a drink. I was nervous to drink it, but I gave it a try. It was a blue liquid. It tasted like grape juice with a pop like fizz to it. Harry and I ate as much food as we could. All in all, the food was great.
After we ate, there were multiple games we could play. One of the games was pin the legs on the spider. Also we had broom races, scariest costume, trick or treating, and who can make the best witch soup. I had lost the broom racing because it was new to me and I had trouble getting the broom to fly. Harry won the scariest mask contest, I wasn’t surprised. All in all, I had a great time. I like this new school of mine!

Mother Goose Poem

Hello! diddle, diddle,
The
fierce cat and the little fiddle,
The
fat cow leaped over the bright, full moon;
The
meek dog snickered
To
watch such amazing game,
And the
shiny, small dish sprinted away with the dull, large spoon.

My Personal Brand Video - IAM Video

Three things that I learned from doing his project are:

  1. I learned to add affects in my movie.
  2. I learned how to put pictures in my movie.
  3. I learned how to put a video of my own in my movie.

An Unforgettable School Day


One morning, ready to go, I was drop dead nervous. I got in the car with my sister, brother, and my mom. We took off, I was a new student in 2nd grade, at O’Neill Elementary Public School.
I was scared that I wouldn't fit in or have any friends. We had moved here because most of my family lives here. It was a very hard time to leave my house and my friends behind. I had to say my name, what I liked to do, and where I came from to the whole class. I used to live by Lincoln, in Martell, and I went to school in Crete. It was a gigantic school, way more kids than in O’Neill. All I remember is feeling my face getting really red and I could feel everyone staring at me. All of the kids told me their names and what they liked to do too.
I thought that this school was going to be bad and everything was going to be different but, I was mistaken. The teachers were nice, and I was on track with what I had learned at my old school. So I did fit in. I was very worried about fitting in. People talked to me and were very nice. It took a while to the meet other kids in the different classes. I eventually met kids in the other classes and became friends with them too.
Now, it feels like I have lived here all of my life. This school is a really good school. I am glad I have moved here, it was a good experience for me. I still miss some of my friends, but I was little so I only new them for a short amount of time. 
My sister and brother like it here too! It is really distressing moving, but you should always remember you can make new good friends. I love my school and my friends! I am glad I moved. I will never forget that day.

Bedroom

Bedroom writing


Here is my room. Bright walls pop in your eyes when you walk in. Two walls are teal and two are purple. My room is not too small and not too big. It is the perfect size for me. I also have pictures on my walls with quotes and a pink cross by my sparkly light switch. I got the cross when I was baptized when I was a baby. I have a pink fuzzy rug on my wood floor. My dad put the wood floor in when we first moved into the house about a year ago. I have a dresser that’s not that clean by my door. It has a mirror on it with carved wood on top. My dresser used to be my great grandma’s. My closet is big and it has two doors to open into it. I put totes on the top shelf of my closet. There is a hanging rack for my dress shirts. I have another dresser in my closet and a shelf for my shoes. My closet is very full!

My Bed is a full size mattress and it is very comfy. I have a bunch of pillows piled neatly on my bed. I have a teal bed spread with colorful striped sheets. Beside my bed, I have a brown lamp table with a little drawer. I use the drawer as a junk drawer. I have a zebra lamp that sits on that little table. There is a big mirror on my bedroom door. It was there when my family moved into the house. My window is on the opposite side of the door. It has a pink, silky curtain and also a white pull shade. I also have a teal, little trash can. My room has lots of stuff! I am rich beyond measure.
