Mrs. Sumner's Fourth Grade
Character Trait: Caring
September 11th a tragical day,
Horrible, horrible, horrible we say,
All that they left was pieces of building and dirt,
All that they left was people seriously hurt,
Then he left to his country to hide,
But he can't hide from us and our side,
U.S. is the best the best there can be,
The best of the best from country to country.
One of Mrs. Keith's Class Character Education topics was "Learning from
Mistakes". Her class is writing poems and using Indian names as their pen
Making mistakes is okay.
It is not that you won't, you will
Sometimes I make misktkes
Take time to learn
Always is okay
Kind people will help you
Every mistake will break
Learning from mistakes helps all people see what they
All inventions start like that,
and with mistakes we have a fine nation.
I see all places and people plus things need to make
so the world will never be perfect and I say "fine"
We the people can and will make mistakes.
I learn from mistakes a lot.
Sometimes I never try it again.
One time I put my poptart in the microwave
and blew it up.
My mom got mad.
I had to clean it up.
I hope I don't make that mistake again.
Courage, Courage helps me to help people,
believe what I believe,
conquer my fears.
Courage is about feeling brave.
Courage is a feeling that a lion has.
It is about standing up and taking care of yourself.
If you have courage, you can do anything you want to.
(except say bad words)
I have courage in baseball.
Courage is an important thing.
you have to have courage in life.
I have courage all the time.
An example is I had courage in my baseball game is to
hit the ball.
C ourage feels great.
