The Haunted House

One time there was a typewriter and one day he decided to make a story. He went to a haunted house. When he entered, he discovered that a family lived in the house in 1995. They died in the house a long time back. Because of ghosts, nobody entered this house ever again until now.

When he heard something in the basement, he heard some other creepy voices. Suddenly the door closed behind him.

He found a secret room, and he saw a blue light. This was the family that had been killed that night. Suddenly ghosts appeared and he ran and hid somewhere.

He thought of an idea to get rid of the ghosts, and he remembered the family. So he quickly took a sword and ran to the basement and broke the ball of glass and killed all of the ghosts.

The family thanked him and went free to heaven and  he wrote this as his story!!!!!! (And the typewriter was me, I guess!!!)

Our New Pen Pals


We are excited to have new blogging pen pals in Iowa. Our penpals are students in Ms. Swanson’s Menagerie. They’ll be blogging at this link, and we’ll be blogging here.

We are kindergarteners in the wonderful Kingdom of Bahrain. Most of us have Arabic as our first language, though a few of us started our lives speaking different languages, like Farsi or English.

Did you know people who learn additional languages tend to grow bigger brains? Mrs. Denise (that’s what we call Mrs. Krebs) tells us about this brain research all the time. She thinks that some of your class know more than one language too. That’s great! She hopes you ALL will learn English and Spanish. When you know two languages it will make learning three and four languages easier too.

We like to remember that our brain is growing as we continue to learn.

This week we had parent-teacher conferences. Mrs. Denise told our parents we were doing better than last time and learning very much. We also had an English book fair. Many of us bought books to read at home. Sometimes we have an Arabic book fair too.

In one week we’ll have our school carnival. We’ll be sure to share pictures with you!

We look forward to getting to know you as we blog together!

Our school is a K-12 private school in Manama. Children learn in both Arabic and English. The students are all bilingual. They go to Arabic and English teachers. Some of the teachers, like me, are not bilingual.

Here is a great list about where to go in Bahrain and some of the many activities you can do here. Here are some pictures of Bahrain too:
