Here are some awesome efforts from Room 4 poets
Lazy sleeping in the sun
Tall long tails
Cat are all around in my home.
Soft and smooth fur
Hissing and scratching
Playing quickly with their toys
Tiny little kittens

Cute and fluffy
Sleepy and colourful
Cries miaow for food or attention
Kittens are strong
They lick their fur slowly
I love kittens

IT WAS A DARK NIGHT AND I DECIDED TO GO TO THE BEACH. I HAD ON SHOES AND SOCKS. IT WAS COLD. I DID NOT HAVE GLOVES ON. MY FEET TOUCHED THE WATER. THE SAND WAS COLD. I DIDN’T HAVE A TORCH.
MY MUM WAS SHOCKED! SHE THOUGHT THAT I HAD BEEN STOLEN. BUT I HADN’T BEEN.
I SAW A SEA LION. I JUST ABOUT GOT CHASED BUT I DID NOT. I WAS AFRAID.
IT WAS A DARK EVENING SO I DECIDED TO GO FOR A WALK. THERE BEFORE MY EYES WAS A REALLY BIG HAUNTED HOUSE.
I WENT IN AND WALKED UP THE STAIRS. I HAD A BAD FEELING. I KEPT ON GOING WITH A CREAK.
I CAME TO A ROOM THAT HAD ONE PIECE OF FURNITURE. THERE WAS AN OGRE STARING AT ME. I RAN DOWN THE STAIRS AND SHUT THE DOOR BEHIND ME.
I WENT THROUGH THE HALL TO SEE FIVE SILVER KNIGHTS THEN A GATE SHUT BEHIND ME. I WAS TRAPPED! A WAREWOLF RAN AT ME AND BIT ME ON THE SPINE AS I FELL TO THE GROUND IN PAIN.

We decided that we can do this by...
encouraging others by telling them they can do it if they keep trying
saying nice things, things that are positive like "nice job"
find lost things if someone has lost them
offer to play with people who don't have anyone to play with
help people if they fell over or are hurt
compliment each other
help others do hard things in the classroom if they are easy for you
We also talked about how it feels when someone helps you..
When someone helps you, you feel nice, safe, happy, good great, you know you have friends.
And when you help someone else, it makes you feel great too, it is great to feel helpful!

On tuesday we went to the baa baa smart sheep show at the public libary. We saw The cat in the hat and we saw Geronimo Stiltin. At Baa Baa smart sheep we saw Mr Mitchel and we sang songs. We saw Gill (Our library teacher). She organised the show. At the very end Josiah and Alex got a prize which was a swimming bag with a lollipop and a 3 DVD voucher rental and he got a seed which you plant and when it grows you can use it to heal cuts and bruises. You can also eat the flowers.
Baa baa smart sheep is a story and it is the New Zealand Children's Book awards. We think it is the best story and it should win the prize.
by Charlie and Campbell
