Nickerson School students reflect on winter season
Swanville — This winter edition is dedicated to Mr. Dan Horton, the most awesome substitute teacher in the world! We think he is special because he's funny and he always brings math games and his ukelele with him when he comes to our class. Dan is also a tutor in the After School Program and has taught most of the parents of the students in our school.
Winter days make me feel all happy and bright.
Snow falling on the frozen ground
piles up around me.
Making snowballs and snowmen
is very playful and fun.
Being outside when it's zero degrees
makes me feel like a block of ice.
It doesn't matter how cold it gets
because my goose down jacket keeps me toasty.
Once it hits that final moment
and it becomes too cold for me to survive,
I go inside my house.
My dog, Tucker, jumps up on me at the door
because he wants to play.
My mom heats up apple cider
and gives it to me in a mug.
I love snow days because they make me feel cozy.
The snow outside is delightful
because you can go ice sledding.
Ice sledding is when you find a snowy and icy spot
and take a flying saucer.
Then you go on the small snowbank.
When you get on the ice you go round
and round and round.
I love staying home when there's a snow day
because I get to lay beside my dog, Hunter,
on his new bed and blanket.
Sometimes he lays on my chest.
I love it when he does that.
It makes me feel so warm.
I wish he was here right now!
On a snowy day
when I throw the snowball to my dog
all my other animals go after it.
After I go inside my house
my dad makes hot cocoa
for my brother and me.
The marshmallows taste squishy and good.
Pat gives my dogs a little treat too.
Then I play Monster University
on my InnoTab 3.
Winter is fun!
I like to drink hot cocoa.
It is yummy!
I like to have no school
when there's a blizzard.
I like to build a Lego city
with my Dad.
I like it when the power goes out
because I scare my Mom
with my Dracula costume.
When it's a cold day
My kitty cuddles up
close to my face and purrs.
Snowy days make me happy.
In the winter I play a game
with my pug, Duke.
I play Ice Man and Snow Man.
I throw snowballs at him!
He is the Snow Man bad guy.
I'm the Ice Man.
I am the good guy.
I pretend my backpack is ice
and I pretend to throw it at him.
Playing with Duke in the winter
I Detest Snow!
I detest snow!
I detest snow!
I like to stay in the house.
Oh, I am not a snow person.
I'd rather be in Texas.
Winter is Fun!
Outside in my yard I built a snow castle.
My dog ran into it through the door
and tried to climb the snow stairs
but the castle caved in on him!
He could have gotten hurt
because I put four metal buckets
on the top of my castle.
Diezel probably smelled the chicken
that I put in the tower.
My dog ran back and found the drumsticks.
I was going to eat them but he got them first.
In my bedroom
I have a new game and you get to build things.
I made a dog out of snow.
The game is on my iPod.
I love winter!
When we go outside to play
my dog Kida runs after us!
My sister throws snow at me
and I throw it back at her.
We have fun in the winter.
When my sister Alayna and I
go inside on a winter day
Mommy makes us hot cocoa.
I put on my Monster High bathrobe
and my sister gets her unicorn pillow pack.
Then we snuggle up in cozy blankets
and watch The Snow Queen together.
We have fun in the winter!
I love ice skating.
I skate with my Dad.
This winter at school
we are going to go ice skating.
You can do figure eights
and you can spin too.
I wish I had on my ice skates!
When we go back to school
I am going to sip hot cocoa
and cuddle with my teddy bear
and read a book.
It is fun to go ice skating.
My Mom's van is as white as the snow.
When it's snowing and blowing
her car slips and slides
on the icy road.
The wheels are moving slowly.
My sister Sabrina sits in the last seat
in the back listening to the radio.
I like to sit in the front next to Mom
because there's a switch that turns the seat heat high and low.
Sometimes we drive to The Dollar Tree
in our family van to buy special treats.
The wheels on the van go round and round
all the way back home.
My favorite thing to do in the winter
is going inside and watching TV with my brothers and my Mom.
Sometimes I take my bed out
and we all sleep in the living room together.
I like to go outside at recess because my friends help
me dig tunnels, slides, and snow chairs.
Sometimes my fingers feel frozen
but I don't really care because it's fun to play outside in the winter.
