Today was the first day at my new school. It was totally awesome! As soon as my mommy dropped me off, and I entered the classroom, my teacher shouted, “Welcome to the Rocky Reservoir!” The very first thought that sprung into my mind was, “What in the world is a reservoir??” Me being my curious and determined self, I had to ask. It turns out that the rest of the class was wondering the same thing. You’ll never guess what we all decided to do next! We made our own reservoir! As a team, we made little fishies out of paper mache to put in the clear, sparkly water. My fish was the cutest. It was blue with a white nose and lots of beautiful black stripes along both sides of its body. After we were done with that, our teacher asked us what else we thought went in a reservoir. My new friend, Destiny, shouted excitedly, “Rocks and stones!” “And sand,” Bradley added in. So we all went to the playground and tried to find all the rocks and sand we could. After a while, it was time for us all to go to lunch. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to keep making our reservoir, but my teacher promised we could continue when we came back to the classroom.
Once I got to lunch, my friends and I couldn’t stop thinking about reservoirs. We scarfed down our food as fast as humanly possible so that we could continue our day. Trust me, I tried to enjoy my time with my friends at lunch….I promise, but I couldn’t stop thinking about what we learned in class today. “What types of animals live in reservoirs?” I thought to myself. “What kinds of plants create the fascinating landscape surrounding this body of water?” Finally, I heard the words I had been waiting for, “Come on everyone,” my teacher whispered. “It’s time to go to the playground.”
