This is Ryan's first homework. His teacher wanted him to make a jack-o-lantern out of construction paper and then write a story about it. Here is his story:
"My jack-o-lantern grew out in the jungle. The jungle was as creepy as a spider. I went to the jungle on a boat and I didn't believe my eyes! I saw my scary as a bear jack-o-lantern. Then I went walking to this gate and I put my ear next to it. My ear heard elephants! I went home and made some hot chocolate. Then end."
As long as I'm talking about jack-o-lanterns. This is Ryan's. He got the pumpkin on his field trip. On Sunday, Daddy helped him make his jack-o-lantern. Unfortunately, once Ryan got the seeds out, he dropped the pumpkin and it cracked down the sides. So, Ryan decided to fix it with duct tape. It is now a blind, mummy pumpkin.
