Bird by Lilah

Lilah---Bird

I am a bird. I wonder if there are other birds with me. I hear other birds chirping. I see bees, frogs, animals and cereal. I want food! I am a bird—again! I pretend I’m not a bird. I feel sad.

Nicholas, Kindergarten

I am a doggy that celebrates my birthday! I wonder what my presents will be. I hear my froggy friend crunching the honey ball. It is hard when you bite it, but when it turns to honey, it is soft.         I see my kitty friend giving me a reindeer toy. It has a coat and a stick. I want my froggy friend to give me another toy like that, but cooler.

I try to
