Saturday, February 4th, 2017

   By: Sophie, age 9

Chickens: Rocket, Rosie, Starlight and Goldie

Starlight: Hi Goldie

Goldie: Hi Starlight

 Starlight: Have you seen Rocket, Goldie?

Goldie: No, have you seen her?

Starlight: Where do you think she is?

Goldie: You check the coop and I will check the garden.

Starlight: Ok.

Narrator: Starlight darted off in one direction towards the coop and Goldie darted off in the other direction all around the garden. Starlight had checked the whole entire coop and Goldie had checked the whole entire garden and had only found a few of Rocket’s feathers

Goldie: Look, Starlight! The gate is open!

Starlight: Look over there. There’s Rocket she’s going down the hill.

Goldie: After her!!!!!!!!

Narrator: Starlight and Goldie followed Rocket all the way down to the creek and down to Schoonmaker Beach.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Ms. Barbara came to let the chickens out of the coop but instead she found the gate wide open and all the chickens out. Worst of all, there were three chickens missing. Miss Barbara walked up the hill to Miss Siskin’s fourth and third grade class not bothering to close the gate because she was so worried about Rocket, Starlight and Goldie. She walked in, in the middle of history not even bothering to ask Miss Siskin if she could interrupt the lesson and she said …

Miss Barbara: Rocket, Starlight and Goldie are missing! We have to search for them! I will take a group down to the creek. Miss Siskin, can you look around campus and alert ever person you see. Miss Mayes, will you make posters?

Miss Siskin and Miss Mayes together: OK

Narrator: 3 pm came and went; then 4 pm. Miss Barbara’s group came back to school. Miss Siskin and Miss Mayes’ group had already gotten dismissed. The people that went to After School went to After School and the people that went home went home.

Mr. Noah: Today in After School we will take a field trip to Schoonmaker Beach.
After School kid: Ok.

A few of the Siskinites noticed a few colorful birds as soon as they were let out onto the beach the Siskinites ran to one side of the beach and found Rocket, Starlight and Goldie.

Narrator: As they walked down to Schoonmaker Beach the Siskinites looked for Starlight, Rocket and Goldie. As they got to Schoonmaker Beach, one
