Dragonland chapter 3 by Matthew

Here is the third chapter in Dragonland. I hope you enjoy it!

​Chapter 3

​Finding Mark

Good! Ian, you’re awake. Sorry I blasted you with water. We have to go find Mark. “I’m injured forever,” he complained. “You are not…” I said, “you will heal quickly”. “How?” he asked. I explained that water might injure him, but he will heal just as fast.

​As we set off, I heard some distant screaming. I figured it was Simon screaming that Mark was injured but I wasn’t sure. I ran to his house.

​”OF COURSE I AM IT’S MARK THAT’S NOT OKAY!!!” he screamed back.

​Simon explained to me how Mark was thrown off of a cliff.

​”Is he okay?” I asked. Then I realized how stupid I sounded. Of course he was not okay. Well, at the time no but he would heal. Then I sensed something. Mark just landed in the water. “Okay guys Ian and I are going to jump off this cliff and Mark will bring us back up it. You ready Ian?

​”Let’s go!” he replied. We jumped. The fall took forever. I finally sensed we were getting close. I looked down. Bad move! I landed face first onto the water. Mark was so startled he almost pelted me. Ian had landed ten times better than I did.

​”Come on!” Mark said.

​”I’ll stay here guys. I’ll heal before I come up.” I said.

​”You sure?” asked Mark.

​”I CAN TUNNEL!!!” I screamed. Ian and Mark started climbing.

 •      •      •

​An hour later I decided to climb up the tower. I made it up in five minutes. The whole group was worried. Even Robert and Eric were there.

​”Where were you?” Ian asked.

​”Just for once Ian! You know where I was!!!” I said angrily.

​​”Oh yeah!” he replied.

​if there had only been another dinosaur around… Mark would be gone forever.

Me Job Chapter 11 (Twist in next chapter)

My story has been very boring lately, but I had to let some time go by before I let the story get suspenseful. The suspense starts here! Please comment. They are very much appreciated!

Chapter 11

We watched the movie about Chicago, Rian and I fell asleep out of boredom. Walking out of the theater my mom’s phone rang. She picked it up on the first ring and a friend from Colorado picked up. She had extra tickets to the Carolina-Chicago game. “Mom! You can’t turn those down.” I persuasively said. “I’m sorry Sarah, but we….” my mom trailed off. “We’ll take them!” She said. “You’re free for the game? Right mom?” I questioned. “Yes, Andrew. Of course.” My mother replied almost sarcastically.

That night. My mom had a meeting in the hotel, so Rian and I bought room service pizza. I heard a soft knock at the door, followed by the sound of a man with a deep voice saying, “Pizza!” A very big African-American man walked in. He was wearing a blue Matt Forte jersey and large Levi’s jeans. I accepted the pizza and handed the man a 10 dollar bill. The bill was snatched out of my hand and the man turned around muttering to himself, “Is that the little girl Tractor wants?” While we were eating, Rian peeped, “Who was that suspicious man?” “I don’t know Rian.” I said. After eating pizza and watching the Poinsettia Bowl between Wyoming and BYU. Rian climbed into the Queen size bed, and me into the pullout couch. When I woke up that morning it was 9- o’clock and my Mom was shaking me. “Wake up Drew; we have to leave for the game in an hour. I got dressed, put on my Raptors t-shirt, pants and a sweatshirt. We took a cab to the game early to avoid traffic.  When we pulled up to Soldier Field on Lake Shore Drive I sniffed the cool and crisp fall air. It was a great day for a football game, nothing could go wrong.

Dragonland Chapter 2 by Matthew

Here is chapter 2 of Dragonland. This is actually the chapter that you find out what the last chapter was. I hope to finish chapter 3 by February 28.

Chapter 2

The Raging Creatures

I woke to Ian shaking me and yelling, “MARK IS GONE! MARK IS GONE!” I sat up. “Polar bears? Attacking?” I groaned. “NO MATTHEW! MARK IS GONE!” That time I heard it. Mark was gone? I could not afford to lose another brother. I immediately asked Ian, “What happened?” Ian answered, “A dinosaur broke into the house and then Mark turned into a dragon! It was so scary! Mark tried to attack but the dinosaur hit him! Then he unsheathed his sword and swung at mark! Mark flew away and the dinosaur followed him!” I wondered a million thoughts at once. Why did he not attack me? I’m the second most powerful dragon there is? Why did he just follow Mark? Why did he not attack all of us? “Ian,” I managed, “You saw all of that?” Ian answered, “Yes.” I thought it might be an April fool’s joke considering it was April first, but no. Ian said it was all real. I got ready to tell Ian what I didn’t want to tell him ever. “Ian, you are one of us. A dragon. You can think you are a dragon at any time and turn into a dragon.” “Well, who is my dad? Another dragon?” He asked. I replied, “Ian, I am your dad. I imagined you and you came alive at what a regular human would be age 3.” “WELL THEN WHY DID YOU NOT TAKE CARE OF ME LIKE REAL DADS DO?” Screamed Ian. I said with sangfroid, “I did take care of you. I was you teacher all from preschool to last year. This year I changed my age to be a new student ready to prepare you for training.” Ian looked shocked. “How many kids have you had?” I told him, “5. I have had you, Dalton, Theo, Josh, and Sean.” “DALTON’S YOUR KID!?! AWESOME! WE’RE BROTHERS!” Ian yelled with excitement, “Who took care of them?” “Mark did.” I said sadly. “Who will take care of them now?” Ian asked. “Lets find out!” I said, determined to find him. “He’s dead.” Ian said coldly. “NO HE IS NOT!” I screamed, “YOU HAVE NO LAND POWERS AT ALL!” Ian fell to the ground. I realized I had blasted my son with the most powerful blast of water I could. Luckily, he would heal quickly and we could get to work.

Valentine’s Poems by Cole

In class a few days ago, we made Valentine’s Day Poems. It is where we take an article from a newspaper or book, then cut it out and choose random words to make a poem. What is cool about this particular kind of “poem”, is you don’t know what it will be like until you are completely finished with the whole thing. Here is what mine looks like:

Week 11 sentences (My Adventures in vocab world) by Matthew

Finally I remembered to put this on the blog! Here I have the fourth awesome chapter about OCEANI!!! Oh wait, that was actually Ocean. Oceani is next. – Direct quote from this chapter.

Chapter Four

Ocean the ocean fanatic

This is Ocean. He really likes the ocean (Duh!) and he is very recalcitrant. He is voted to find the thing all divers seek, The Irish luck treasure. Ocean likes to transpose the books on the bookshelf at the library, so all of the librarians shun him. Ocean is also very salutary considering he plays basketball against me every day. Ocean’s polyglot part of him allows him to go to different countries. Ocean also includes all of the pariah at recess so he is known as Ocean the bomb. Another reason they call him that is because he once wore a scintillated dress for Halloween. He also fell into a tributary and was very sangfroid about it. He got a remuneration for that. anyways, that is OCEANI!!! Oh wait, that was actually Ocean. Oceani is next.

I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you enjoy my next chapter, the one about Oceani.

Chapter 5 in Vocab World by Matthew

Here is what you have all been waiting for, THE WEEK 12 SENTENCES!!! Here is the intro to Oceani.

Chapter Five


Ocean with an I at the end

Oceani is a twin of Ocean (Duh) and he is very carnivorous. He never escalates in size so he doesn’t know why we have to look down at him. he is also hirsute so he shaves A LOT!!! There is a complete equilibrium between Ocean and him. Once I made a huge contretemps and made him go flying off of his bike. Woops! He ended up breaking an arm. He thought it would do some good to pay me back and expunged me. That gave me a bruised arm. Then a harbinger bird came and gave me a message It said that Oceani was going to die before the age of ten. I did not want to have any more dulcet music, My other brother Salmon had already died. Anyways, Oceani’s bike was irreparable. We had to buy him a new one even though he didn’t use it ever. Okay, back to the NEAR past (That crash happened 4 years ago). Oceani now performs fo Celtic Ocean and he is have a hard time not being doggerel.He finally seems to get the hang of it though. Now, finally, whe will take a look at our last family member, Snowi.

If I Woke Up and I Was An Adult I Would… by Matthew

I woke with a start. I got up and fell. I realized I was 7 feet tall! Over night I had grown two feet and two inches! I looked at the date. 2029? On December 18! 29 years old? Oh, wait 30! It was my birthday. I looked at the clock. 12:17 am. 1 minute away from 30. I looked at the seconds on my watch. 59 seconds! I had just enough time to think, “Last second of being in my 20s! Yay!” Then I looked at my clothes. I was wearing my dolphin pull over! Not just any pullover, the pullover I wore to my basketball games that I coached. The Dolphins! Located in Syracuse, NY! I remembered we had a 7:00 game! Time to get up!!!

I drove straight to the game. I had to swerve to avoid several car crashes. I finally made it. I coached our awesome game, which took up the whole day considering how many OTs we had. I drove home and crashed into a limo. I got out of the car, apologized, and ran home. I finally got there and crashed onto my bed. I fell asleep. When I woke up the next day, I was a kid! Was it just a dream? Or was it more?

what happened? Made on skitch my Matthew

My Adventures in Vocabulary World by Matthew

Hello guys! Lately I just have not found time to write, but I came up with an idea. I decided, since we have to do sentences with vocabulary words every Wednesday, I would make a story and make 1 chapter be the sentences for that week. I will try to post them every Thursday so I feel like it is time for a new story, that I hope you will enjoy.

My Adventures in Vocabulary World

Chapter 1 – Mark the sports fanatic

Hello! My Name is Matthew. I have wanderlust so I like to travel a lot.I like climbing trees but all of the good ones have tendrils. My brother Mark’s reverie about the time he had at a verve football game was distracting. I ostracize everyone that comes in my seat so that I get to sit near the coach. Every now and then we go to the beach. There we watch the lambent flame tongues of the fire. I also love walking through the sediment of the ocean. Wait! MARK IS A SOMNAMBULIST! AHHHH! I screamed so loud Mark jumped up and hit his head on the wall. My Mom came downstairs to see what happened in complete pulchritude mode. Mark grabbed a chip and started to masticate it down. What a sports fanatic, I thought.

Please comment so that I know what to do to make my stories a lot better. I hope you liked it!

The Noob Story Part Three by Sam D

His next class was science and the science teacher had decided to do a chemistry lesson. His science teacher was named Mr. Henderson. He told the class to take out their homework assignments and then he would start his lesson. Stanley was so excited to turn in his homework assignment he was about to have a stroke or something. He opened his binder to the homework section and took out his homework. Mr. Henderson came over to Stanley and asked him for his homework. “I did every thing on the assignment even the things we weren’t supposed to do!!!” said Stanley in an extremely loud voice and scared Mr. Henderson to the point where he had to put on his Stanley-proof earmuffs. When Stanley was done Mr. Henderson took off the earmuffs, thanked Stanley for the homework, and collected the rest of the class’s homework. Stanley was off to a good start of the day. Mr. Henderson told them that they would be doing a chemistry project in groups of two using pure potassium, sulphur, baking soda, vinegar, and water. Stanley was very excited about the project they were going to be doing and was already wondering who he was going to be paired up with. Stanley ended up being partners with a guy named Jake Fezz. Jake was a normal kid at school, not unpopular not very popular but one thing’s for sure, he did not like Stanley one bit. But Jake was a nice and polite kid so he wasn’t mean to Stanley. He tried to be as nice as he could and pray he would survive Stanley. He was half right.

The Noob Story Part Two by Sam D

While waiting in the car, he saw his Nintendo DS and picked it up and played Mario Kart on the way to school. When the car pulled up to the school, he shut his DS, and he and his mom walked into the school. When they got to the door for homeroom his mom kissed his cheek, told him that he was her sunshine, and left the school. The second he walked into homeroom he was nailed in the face with a wad of notebook paper, followed by what was like a million more. It made poor Stanley sad and he began to cry. His homeroom teacher pulled him out of the projectiles and told the class that their actions were inappropriate and that Stanley was just important as the rest of the class. That made Stanley feel a little better about himself and he heard the first bell and left for his next class.
