11. Chasing My Dog in the Snow
Two winters ago there was a lot
of snow here and I chased my dog in the snow. It was hard because he disappeared in the
snow and you never knew where he would pop up. It was also hard to see him because all you
could see was his tail.
12. Skating on the Pond
In 1996, Justin and I skated on
his pond. We skated without skates, just using our shoes. We fell in the pond and it was
fun because it wasn't very deep. We laughed and laughed and laughed. We got wet when we
fell in the pond. We got back to Justin's house and we went into his house. We had hot
chocolate and we put our shoes over the fire. Then we went to bed.
13. Hauling Firewood
Hi, my name is Tamara-Rea and I
haul firewood with my grandpa. We keep it in the garage and I go to the garage and I get
it. My grandpa takes a chainsaw and he cuts firewood. He takes a wheelbarrow and goes to
the forest to collect it. He takes an axe and chops the wood in half. It comes from the
forest and we use it for the fireplace in the winter time and we sit beside the fireplace.
14. The Blizzard
When we had the blizzard two
years ago, the snow was very hard to get
15. A Frosty Morning
One day I woke up and
everything was frosty so I got up and I got my clothes on. After I made my bed I went
outside to see if I could see anything but I could not see a thing. I tried to clear the
air with a vacuum cleaner but it didn't work because vacuums don't work on air. I had to
put the vacuum away. I might have worn the batteries out anyway. Pretty soon I didn't need
the vacuum because the air cleared and I could see again.
16. Snowdrift Fun
Two years ago we and our
brothers and sisters were playing in the snow.
17. Driving on Icy Roads
Hi! My name is Heather. It is
still cold out. The snow is still falling and it is really hard to get around on the icy
roads. My mom keeps her eye on the road. My mom tells me to be quiet in the van. She
always says it is for my own good. I see a lot of animals when I am in my mom and dad's
van. My mom is a very careful driver so she never gets in accidents even on icy roads.
18. Snowball Weather
When it snows I throw snowballs
at snowmen and I make big snowballs and make snowmen with them. I make angels in the snow.
I go down the driveway on the sled too and I try to make tunnels under the snow. I built a
fort and make snowballs and throw them at my brother. Then I make snow angels in the snow.
I lost my boot in the snow when I was clearing the driveway. After that we went sliding
down the hill. I made a little wall with a hole in it then I stood beside it and my mom
threw snowballs at me and I went behind it.
19. Testing the Depth of the Spring Run-off
When spring is on its way and
when the snow and ice starts melting I like to look in ponds and see what is in them.
Sometimes I try to skate or walk on the thin ice. But usually I fall though the thin ice.
I only do this on shallow ponds because it could be dangerous. What I see are new plants
When spring comes again, I hear
chirping and the flapping of birds' wings. I smell flowers and a fresh cool breeze. I feel
a cool breeze, green grass and the sun's warm rays. I see trees blooming, grass growing,
baby animals, snow melting, horses running in fields, caterpillars chewing, kids still
playing with their Christmas toys and flowers blooming.
