Moral-Be Kind to all and friends are better then enemies

Once there was a big forest where all the animals lived in peace. The animals called the forest The Forest of Peace. They would play with each other and no one was mean to another. In the forest there was a puppy named Amanda. She had dark brown and snow white fur. Amanda lived in the forest with her family. Amanda was the most popular animal in the forest. She was the kindest puppy in the world and everyone liked her.

One day a fox family came to live in the forest. The family had a daughter named Jess. Amanda and her sister, Anne, were playing in a field by her house. Amanda and Anne played in the field when their best friends were away. Jess came to the field one day. Jess had soft, red and brown fur. Her eyes were mean and narrow. Jess looked sinewy and strong. She said, “The field is mine and you two have to leave the field.” When the sisters would not leave Jess growled at them and attacked them. Amanda and Anne were scared of Jess and left.

The sisters found a stream to play in. “The stream is not as good as the field, but it is fine,” said Anne. Amanda looked at the stream and frowned.

“There is no grass or clover patches and we don’t know how to swim,” Amanda pointed out.” Then we will learn,” replied Amanda. The sisters learn to swim, but it was still not the same as the field.

The sisters’ best friends came back. Anne’s best friends are two deer, Jane and Jade. Amanda’s best friends are a squirrel, Elle, and a cat, Kathleen. Anne and Amanda explained why they were not at the field. Elle and Jade said we will not let someone be mean to us like that. All the animals agreed.

Anne and Amanda went back to the field and told Jess you do not own the field. Jess was about to attack when Anne said that we will forgive you and we can be friends if you stop being mean to all the animals.

“Sorry, I acted so mean. At my old home no one was nice to me and no one liked me. I guess I thought the only way was to fight for what I want,” explained Jess. All the animals became friends and everything became normal again. Jess learned a very important lesson, be kind to all and friends are better the enemies.

Squirrel and His Foolish Friends by Davi

Squirrel and His Foolish Friends


Once upon a time, there was a forest. In this forest, there lived a tribe of squirrels. All of the squirrels in this tribe were daredevils, except for one squirrel named Bob Scaredy Squirrel.

One day, Bob was talking with his friends, when they heard raucous laughter. Bob’s friends went investigating while he admired a caterpillar as it made its way up a tree. In the middle of its ascent, a lizard jumped from a nearby branch, grabbed the caterpillar, and started to run. As soon as it was out of sight, Bob heard a voice calling his name.

“Bob, come here Bob, you have to see this!!!!” Bob ran past the trees and saw, spread out on a cliff, a colossal log. Squirrels were running all over the log, their claws clacking against the wet wood.  Suddenly, there was a large crack and the log dipped a few feet. All the squirrels gasped, then started laughing. It seemed that the crack only enticed them more to go on the log, not to run away.

“Come on Bob,” Bob’s friends urged. “This log is really cool!!! It even cracked a little bit!!” Of course Bob, being a smart squirrel said no. When Bob’s friends started urging him even more, he started arguing. When the squirrels started chanting his name, Bob gave in.

He started to slowly walk towards the log, trying to not be scared. When he set one foot on the log, Bob started thinking of all the horrible things that could happen to him if he went on the log.

“No!” Bob declared, “I won’t do it!” And with that, Bob walked off into the forest. He walked for a little while, when he heard a large crack, and squirrels screaming, loudly at first, then slowly getting quieter. Bob raced back to find that the log had broken, and all the squirrels had fallen to the rocky ground below.

Moral: Do what’s right. Don’t give in to negative peer pressure.

I Am Thankful For…. by Julia

I am thankful for a lot of things, but I am especially grateful for my friends. Through the good times and the bad, my friends have been with me through it all. They are always there for me when I’m down and they always find a way to cheer me up again. Yeah, we don’t always see eye to eye on things but so what? Our differences are what make us unique. I am so lucky to have such amazing friends and I am so grateful for everything they do for me.

What I am Thankful For! By Miriam D.

I am thankful for a lot of things, but I am most thankful for friends. Last year, I got to know what it was like to have to not have any friends because so many people were being so mean to me every day, that I did not trust anyone. But this year, I made friends with all the new girls that came to our school. I now have the best friends in the world! My friends matter to me more than almost everything else on this planet! I look out for them, and they always look out for me. Yes, last year there were a couple of girls who were nice to me, and I am still good friends with them today. They are all awesome!!!!!!!!!!! 💜💙💚💜

I’m Thankful For… by Grace

I’m thankful for many things, but one of the things that I’m most thankful for is my friends. Friends are one of the best things in the world. One of the things I can always count on are my friends being there when I need them. My friends have helped me from the start, they always know If I’m upset and help me get through anything. My friends are fun and they always stand by me no matter what. On occasion we fight but we always get through it.Throughout the years my friends will be there for me, I may make new friends, but I will always treasure the old.

I am thankful for a lot of things. One of things is all my friends and family because they are always there to help me. My mom always pushes me to do my best, my dad makes the money for all the activities I do, my sister plays with me and shares her stuff with me, and last my dog, he makes me happy when I am sad. My friends make me laugh and they make school more fun. My friends and I always work together and help each other. I am very glad that I have a family that loves me and friends that help me. I am very thankful for my family and friends.

I Am Proud Of by Bella K.

I am proud of the friends I have. Not everyone likes me or my friends, but as long as I’m happy with them, I think I’m good. My friends don’t care about what your ethnicity is, how smart you are, or what you wear. Real friends care about you. Would your friends wait for you until you unpack your bag in the morning, come with you to drop off your things at a class, help you find things when you lost them? Well, my friends do. And that’s why we’re happy when we hang out. We cheer for each other at PE, we jibber jabber about things at recess. We can tell each other who we like because we trust each other. I am proud of my friends because I like the way they are.
