    Adreanna, I know it can be hard to deal with people, but it will all be ok. Toxic relationships are not worth it.

    Once, there was a little boy named Nova from Indiana who loved to play. He liked Legos, building, and a silly striped hat that he wore every day. He also loved building blanket forts and playing with Baby Brother.

    • Dear Katie,
      I liked your short story about Bear very much! I thought that you had a lot of good sensory details which made the story come alive and brought it closer to your audience. I hope you write another piece that starts off where you ended, describing one of the adventures Bear and Nova go on! Thanks so much for your story!

    • Katie,
      for some reason while reading this story I was nervous the whole time that Nova was going to lose Bear. At the end, I thought perhaps Daddy was going to throw Bear away. You really had me captivated! Also, I think Bear is a great name (I had a stuffed cat when I was younger called “kitty”). My question for you is whether this story came from something personal in your life (Did you or one of your siblings have one of these bears?) or was this from your imagination? Here is a cool article from Psychology Today: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-guest-room/201407/more-just-teddy-bears … that talks about how kids are learning to regulate themselves by caring for their stuffed animals, and how it is an awesome phenomenon.
      Let me know what you think!

    • Katie,
      I really enjoyed your short story that you shared with us. This story was very well structured making it easy and fun to read. I also really enjoyed the words that used and the way that you used them. It let me vividly experience the story. I hope to see more stories similar to this one in the future!

    Brandon, this was a really good poem. I think it was brilliant playing off of Coatsworth’s concept of a pet and owner dialogue. I especially like how you used the phrase “you will toss and tumble straight to the ground.” I look forward to seeing more of your poems.

    Abigail, you did an amazing job on this poem. You are truly a poet! I love the reoccurring theme of music and orchestra, I truly appreciated that in your poem. I’m looking forward to seeing your next poems.

  • Jaden,

    This was absolutely beautiful. I loved the pictures you painted about life in the country. I felt like I could actually see everything you were describing. You did an amazing job!
