Beowulf Report Part 1 (By Aaron)

Beowulf is the son of Ecgtheow. Beowulf is big and strong. Beowulf is a warrior. He is a Geat from Geatland.

Beowulf sailed to Daneland. It took 24 hours. A guard met him. The guard takes him to Heorot. Heorot is a big meed hall with many people. Hrothgar is the king that built Heorot. Beowulf he tells him why he came. He heard that he was a bad guy attacking Heorot named Grendel.

Grendel could kill 30 men at a time. His fingernails were as strong as metal. Grendel was mad that the men in Heorot were happy and singing about God.

Beowulf fought Grendel with his hands not anything else. He ripped Grendel's shoulder off. Grendel escaped but died later. Hrothgar gave Beowulf  jewels and gifts.

Happy Birthday Grandma Mary!

A Birthday Story for Grandma Mary! (by Aaron)

My birthday is just a few days before yours. On my birthday I woke up at 6:30. I found balloons when I woke up, and I hit one. Then I got a balloon sword. I found checker puzzles and chess puzzles and played lots of games. I even had a cake that was a checker game. I won so I got to eat all of the white guys pieces and some of my black pieces. It was a good birthday.

What did you do for your birthday? I hope it was a good one!
