How Caspar learned to shriek loudly: A ghost story by Constantin Guggenberger, 2A
The little ghost Casper went to the famous ghost school called “spook academy.”
Last summer he finished school, but when he saw his report cars he started to cry big tears. He was really disappointed. “What have I done wrong= Why do I get such bad marks?” he sobbed. “Because you couldn´t shriek loudly enough,” told him his teacher for spooky shouting. “You have to practice during the summer holidays”!
Casper’s friends saw him crying and wanted to help him. “I have an idea,” one of them whispered. “Come, fly with me!” So they all flew away. Some floating, some using their ghost brooms. They stopped after a few minutes and hid behind the ghost school. They all tried to look as spooky as they could. They waited until they saw Casper walking up their way and suddenly all of them started to rattle their chains and shrieked out as loudly as they could.
Casper was really shocked and shouted out of shock and surprise. This was the loudest shout that was ever heard at the spook academy. Windows burst and even the school bell in the tower started to ring. Everyone was surprised, and Casper and his friends looked at each other in surprise.
After a minute his friends laughed and clapped their hands. “Perfect, Caspar!, not only won´t you get better grades in shouting next term, but I think you will be the best at it.”
Caspar was very happy, and he flew away with his friends, trying out his new shouting power once in a while.
My Rules: a blog post by Constantin Guggenberger, 2A
we just talked about rules in my family and at my school in our English class and I can´t believe how many rules I have to follow every day. Let me share some of them with you, so you see.
At home I have to do the laundry and the dishes. I have to go to bed at 10 pm and I also have to make my own bed. But the really bad news is I have to clean our car. Ahhhhhhhhhh. I´m just kidding- cleaning our car would be really difficult because it is quite big.
Let me share some of my school rules, too. First of all I have to listen to the teacher and write down all the important information. We also have to tidy our class carefully because we are allowed to eat in the lessons. Well, at least I hope so. In our breaks we are allowed to buy food or go to the garden.
I also have to follow some family rules. Let me tell you. My mum allows me only to meet my friends in the afternoon after I have done all my homework, and I´m not allowed to “fight” with my cousin Marc. I think that´s a really bad rule. And the last rule is I have to get up at 7am every morning.
So, what is your take on rules? Do you also have to follow as many rules as I do? I would love to hear about your experiences. Please share your thoughts and ideas in the comments section below.
Rules, rules, rules… – a blog post by Fabian Samhaber, 2A
We have just talked about rules in my family and in the English lesson and I can`t believe how many rules I have to follow. Let me share some of them you so you can see how poor I am.
Every morning I have to get up at a quarter to seven. Then I get dressed and after that I have breakfast. Every Saturday I have to clear the dinner table. But enough about that. Back to school, as the old ones say. When I`m in the English lesson I have to be very quiet. Puh – teachers! I mustn`t listen to music during dinner. I mean, seriously!? Uncool! And sometimes I have to load the dish washer or go shopping for food. I hate that.
So what`s your take on rules? Do you also have to follow as many as I do? I would love to hear about your experiences. Please share your thoughts and ideas in the comment section below.
The greatest ghost of the world – a story by Fabian Samhaber, 2A
Once there was a little ghost called Ben. He was a really tiny and friendly ghost and today was his first school day. Ben was really nervous because it was his fifth school in this year. Everywhere he had to leave the school after a few days because he was too friendly. But he always said to himself „Come on Ben you are the best ghost in the whole universe“.
Half a year later
Today was year-report-day so Ben was very excited. But when he got his marks he was shocked. Everywhere he had the worst mark. Ben went home, crying and full of sadness. But then he had an idea…
Ben flew home and made a plan. He wanted to scare the teacher who he hated most: Mr. Finn. So he flew by day to Mr. Finn’s home while he was asleep. Slowly Ben opened the door and went in. He rattled his chains so Mr. Finn woke up. But he couldn`t see Ben because he hid behind a cupboard. And then the teacher turned away, Ben jumped up and screamed as loudly as he could. Mr.Finn was so scared he lay down on the floor and said, “I give you everything you want but just let me go.“ “Ok fine, that’s the deal. Give me…errrm…the best marks and maybe I will let you run you coward“, Ben said. „Then so it is“, Mr. Finn cried and disappeared.
And with these marks Ben became one of the best ghosts of the world.
My first blog post: Rules, rules, rules…. – a text by Fiona Thurner, 2A
We have just talked about rules in my family and at school in our English class and I can´t believe how many rules I have to follow every day. Let me share some of them with you, so you see.
In my family I mustn´t speak with a full mouth! I mustn´t play on my phone at dinner too, but I like hanging out with friends after school, but only when there aren´t any tests soon! Sometimes I must do the dishes at home. Poor me! I must get up at half past six. What a shame! I want to get up at eight or nine o´clock every day! That´s going to be a lot better! Once a month I must tidy up my room, but sometimes I forget…. I don´t have to do the shopping, but I must set the table before dinner.
But now let me write something about the many rules at school. I must do my homework every day. How I hate this! I must study for the difficult tests too. Can you believe that I have to do everything the teacher says? It´s really bad when I’m late for school! So I am always on time! I mustn´t use my mobile phone at school, but I must clean the board often! Everybody has to put their hands up before we speak, but most people in my class always speak up without putting their hands up. How I hate this!
So what is your take on rules? Do you also have to follow as many as I do? I would love to hear about your experiences. Please share your thoughts and ideas in the comment section below!
Casper and his report card – a story by Fiona Thurner, 2A
The little ghost Casper was at ghost finishing school. Now it´s the end of the school year and they got their report card. Most ghosts were really happy about their wonderful report cards, but not all of them. Casper was the one ghost who had just bad marks. He left the school very sadly and saw all the happy other ghosts. They were at everything much better than him! For example in haunting Casper had a “C”, also in shrieking and in all the other things too! The little ghost was really sad, but on the next he had a wonderful idea.
He studied shrieking because he couldn´t shriek loudly enough. Casper studied screaming and haunting too. After some days he studied scaring people and rattling his chains. When he did everything well he wanted to study more and more things because the ghosts with the good marks in his class were laughing about him. Now he could fly and ride on a broom too. Casper was really proud himself.
His plan is to do the final test of the ghost finish school again, but just brilliant! He wanted to do it a lot better! And yes, when he got his report card again, you could see that there weren´t any more “C”´s in his report card. “B”´s weren´t in his card too. The report card of the young ghost was now full of “A”´s with plus! Everybody was amazed about him and now the other ghosts aren´t laughing anymore about him!!
