Halloween Poem

Halloween is a black spider creeping across the blood-stained wall. Halloween is a gnarled tree tapping on the window. Halloween is a bright orange pumpkin shining in the pitch-black night. Halloween is the sound of children in various costumes going door- to- door. Halloween is witches on broomsticks flying through the air. Halloween is a gaggle of monsters on the prowl. Halloween is a haunted house in the middle of nowhere. Halloween is candy being devoured greedily. Halloween is a black cat bounding down the street. Halloween is a ghost popping up in  random spots and saying Boooooooooooooo.

I went to Aloha Days at SEEDS with my parents. I spent my morning time playing “Topple” with Jeffery. I enjoyed playing, even though I was new to the game. Then my Mom convinced me to take part in one of the hula dances. I did try out the dance moves to make her proud. Then we got ready for Aloha Day lunch, which included teriyaki chicken, steamed rice, and fruit donuts. Overall, I had a nice time.

Saturday the 11th of August I went to an event at Seeds for Autism called Aloha Days where we got to learn about the Hawaiian culture and dance the hula. My favorite part was doing the hula dancing. I loved how each dance tells a story about life and love. I got to eat a delicious pineapple donut and rice topped with chicken. I enjoyed myself a lot being able to hang out with friends and learn new things I didn’t know. I can’t wait for the next event coming soon!

I had fun at Aloha Day. I played volleyball with a Beach ball. I learned how to dance the Hula. My mom came and she ate Hawaiian food. I wore a Hawaiian shirt and played games. I made a sand castle and saw my friends at Seeds.

What I did at Aloha Days is relax and eat food and listen to music and play games.

Hershey’s Chocolate by Sydney

Hershey’s Chocolate Company has been around since 1894 and the founder, Milton Hershey, created such favorites as M&MS and Krackel Bars. The Hershey’s Company is one of the largest chocolate manufacturers in the world. Their products are sold in over 60 countries worldwide. They are a member of the World Cocoa Foundation. In 1903, Milton Hershey began construction of a cocoa plant in Derry Church, Pennsylvania, which was later renamed Hershey. The plant workers and their families lived there and Milton Hershey held social events for them. They also introduced a new product, Hershey’s Kisses, in 1907. The process to wrap the new product was long and hard until machine wrapping was introduced in 1921. They added the paper ribbon at the same time to make sure it was a real Hershey’s product. Their other products included: Mr.Goodbar, Hershey’s syrup, chocolate chips and the Krackel Bar. In conclusion, Hershey’s chocolate is my favorite chocolate.

 

New Candy Bar

After a lively game which involved identifying the ingredients of their favorite candy bars, participants at SEEDs for Autism invented their own one-of-a-kind treats. The only rule was that it had to be edible, and Justin M’s “Gooey Bar” was definitely one of the stand outs!

Name: Gooey Chocolate Bar

What Shape: Rectangle

What’s In It: Ketchup, Toothpaste, Blueberry, Grape Jelly, Relish, Cheese
