My class helped me write the following piece.

    Excitement was in the air! It was almost winter break-two glorious weeks to celebrate all we’ve learned and relax with our families. It was just before lunch and I said, “Let’s have a picnic.” There were more than a few “Is she crazy?” looks. “It’s too cold” everyone said. “Let’s transform our classroom into the outdoors and have a picnic.” Everyone agreed. We started by laying down some old sheets- a green one for the grass and a flowered one for the beautiful gardens around us. Then we all got our lunches and sat down. We enjoyed some apples, bananas, and grapes. As we ate, we took turns telling stories and jokes. Then we listened to music and danced. We laughed. We got to know each other in a new way. We got to make a memory that will remain with us always.
