This is Lego Writing Club. We write stories and have a checklist with grammar items that we must incorporate to get full points. There is a featured author of the week who reads the story. We post our stories on a class site called MeWe for our classmates to read. Here are some of the pics of my build.

Hike to the Water Hole
On the last day of March, we had fun at Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary with friends. We hiked to the water hole, and Thomas was our guide. When we arrived, we were going to play football. Unfortunately, before we started it was time for the picnic. After the picnic, Thomas reviewed the safety rules.
The hike was a total of four miles, and we were proceeding excitedly to the water hole. We saw two garter snakes on the way. Lucas touched Stinging Nettle and Poison Oak. We were stomping in the snake area to scare them.
Finally, we arrived at our destination. It was the watering hole. We saw a water snake which had a really thin body. Lindy captured a newt. Some people held and/or touched the newt. I’m glad I didn’t because it was poisonous! Thomas filtered some water with his portable water filter.
The water tasted far better than normal. Kate and Ciara kept asking for more. People walked on the rocks, and I did. Thomas started bouldering. I joined soon after but not soon enough. When I started, it was time to leave.
On the way back Luke almost got bit by a rattlesnake! He was about five inches away! Quickly, Thomas tried to hit the snake with a stick. He failed and succeeded. He missed, and the snake bit the stick instead. Before we finished the trek, we saw a Pacific Ringneck.
Not everyone returned home right after the hike. We walked into the museum and looked at the animals. After everyone but one family left, they bought us ice cream. Meanwhile, Kate and Sarah were doing art. Next, we went to the park. Lucas, Ian and I played football. Then, we threw rocks over the play equipment. We needed to go to the bathroom so went to a volunteer fire station. That day was a really good d

Touring Fenway Park
On our trip to New England we toured Fenway Park. It is home of the Red Sox. They have the oldest Major League stadium.
We started at the bottom and made our way to the seats. We walked around to the earliest chairs from the stadium and sat in them. They were made of wood!
After that, we saw the room where they got ready for the game. Both teams shared the room so there were brawls! Then, we went to the seats in the Green Monster which is their mascot. They are the best-rated seats of the MLB stadiums. Next, we saw the reporters’ box. Finally, we saw this seat where Ted Williams, who is the greatest baseball player of all time, hit the farthest home run in Fenway Park.
After the tour, we were allowed to go into the season ticket holders only museum.
It has all the Cy Young and MVP awards and many more things.
After we left the stadium, they had a statue of some of the most important Red Sox in history.
Fenway Park is one of the most historic stadiums in the world.
