My animal poem

Image result for red pandaMy Animal Poem
By: Naiyah
Image result for red panda

My animal is a red panda,
It’s fur is as red as a juicy strawberry,
It hides away like spider monkey,
It has a red orange and white pattern,
It’s eyes are super cute and as black as the night sky,
It’s ears are like marshmallows
It sounds like an eak eak

we learned about endangered animals so we made poems about a endangered animal

My wildself





Reindeer antlers - Your reindeer antlers won't stick around for long. Every year reindeer shed their antlers in the spring and summer. But don't worry, they grow back.

Polar bear ears -It gets cold in the Arctic (down to 35°F below). For warmth, your polar bear ears are small and covered in fur—even on the inside. When diving, the ears close to keep cold water out.

Anaconda snake tongue - Now you can smell with your tongue! Your forked anaconda tongue collects odor molecules from the air and brings them back to tiny grooves in the roof of your mouth, letting you "taste" the air.

Gibbon arms - Your Gibbon arms are designed especially for swinging in trees. With these arms you can jump distances of over 20 feet from branch to branch.

California condor legs - Your California condor talons are blunt, unlike eagles who have sharp talons. That's because condors are scavengers. They don't need hooked claws to catch their prey. They just eat someone else's leftovers.

California condor wings - Your California condor wings are the biggest wings in North America. They have a wingspan of almost ten feet.

Peacock male tail - Your peacock tail feathers can grow to be 60 inches long. Each feather has what looks like an eye on it. They help scare away other animals that might want to eat you.

This week we have been learning about adaptations. We had to make a wildself hope you enjoy

Little Red Riding Hood

Little red riding hood

Once upon a time there lived a little girl and her mother called her Little Red Riding Hood. But one day  her grandma fell ill. Little Red Riding Hood told her mum and her mum said “Go to your grandma’s and take some bread and cake. Remember to stay on the path.”
“Yes mum” Little Red Riding Hood said and off she went.

Little Red Riding Hood found some pretty flowers she said to herself “Grandma would like some pretty flowers?” But what Little Red Riding Hood didn’t know was that she was no longer on the path.

But then there was a hungry wolf lurking around ready for its snack. The wolf followed Little Red Riding Hood.

Then the wolf asked the little girl where she was going Little Red Riding Hood said, “to my grandmas house”. The wolf liked his lips and ran past Little Red Riding Hood.

The fox ran inside grandma's house and gobbled grandma all up. Quickly the wolf got into grandma’s clothes and jumped into her bed just in time.

KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK. That was Little Red Riding Hood came in Little Red Riding Hood said to the wolf “My what big ears you  have.”
“Better to hear you with,” the wolf said.
“My,  what big eyes you have”.
“Better to see you with”.
“My, what big teeth you have grandma”.
“ Better to eat you with”.

Bang! Just after that the wolf had gobbled up both of them. Little Red Riding  Hood heard a wood cutter chopping down some trees. Little Red  Riding Hood screamed as loud as she could. Just then the woodcutter came running inside and he heard Little Red Riding Hood. He cut open the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood wore the wolf's fur as a cape. They all lived happily ever after, well not the wolf.

This week we have been writing fairy tales and I have changed my ending to Little Red Riding Hood wore the big bad wolf's fur as a coat.
