FC: Ambler Is... By: Aaunyae' Lucas & Valerie Jackson
1: Ambler is Chestnut Park. I like how I get to swing on the monkey bars like a monkey.
2: Ambler is Rita's Water Ice. Every summer afternoon, I go to Rita's with my friend and buy key lime.
4: Ambler is deer. They live in the woods with their babies.
6: Ambler is Halloween. When we go out at night, we're raiding the streets for candy. My house has the best, I keep coming by!
9: Ambler is flowers. I see roses in the park. I eat honeysuckles and they are good.
10: Ambler is train tracks. Every morning I hear the train go by my house. That wakes me right up. My grandma doesn't, but the train sure does.
13: Ambler is trees. There was a squirrel. He was shaking the tree and the leaves started shaking. Some got on my shoulder and some got on the ground.
14: Ambler is grass. Every other week, I go outside and help my Pop Pop mow the grass. On the tractor, I pressed “high” and didn’t know it would go that fast and I bumped into a tree!
16: Ambler is houses. Three in a row all have blue curtains!
19: Ambler is cooking. While I’m outside, I sometimes smell my grandmom’s fresh-baked extra chocolate chip cookies…I rush in the house to eat them up.
20: Ambler is a sunset. One I saw had red, orange, yellow, and there was pink. It was in front of my house.
22: Ambler is stars. At night, looking in the sky with my telescope, I see a bunch of shining stars.
23: Ambler is bugs. I see ladybugs, butterflies, and a spider as big as my hand! I want to touch it.
24: Ambler is a yellow bus. Walking down the street to the bus stop, the yellow bus arrives to take me to school.
25: Ambler is home.
