This week, we have a story written by Caroline Canute, from Cowichan, BC. Caroline is enrolled in literacy classes at the Reading and Writing Centre, an upgrading program offered by Vancouver Island University, Cowichan Campus, for adults wanting to improve their reading, writing, and math skills.
Cher, Cat and I had fun wandering around Science World. Cher and Cat got on this exercise bike. I can't believe Cher was going so fast. Cher stood by the frog statue. Cat took a picture. We went to look at the corn snake sleeping and Cher said, "Yuk! I don't like snakes." Cat and I started to pull this rope elephant. Aaaah that was hard! Cat and I started laughing.
Cat took a picture of a beehive, a bear skin, cockroaches and a huge burger. A drum full of sand twirled like the wind. We looked at compost worms. Cat was doing a lot of things. She wound the tube and we saw electricity. Cat and I were shooting the ball. Cat won. We saw a projector push air. Cat took a picture of a baby out of a womb. Nora and I went to this big satellite dish you can hear your echo. Cher took a picture of me sliding down. I was laughing.
Cher and I had a race pulling yourself up on the chair. Cher won. Cher, Cat, Nora and I went to this giant mirror. Aaaah! My arms were long, my sweater looked like a dress. My legs were short. Same thing with Nora. That was the funniest thing I ever saw. Did I ever have fun! First time I ever laughed so hard and had so much fun.
