                                                First Grade visits the Pumpkin Patch

                                               I am on a field trip. I picked a tall pumpkin. We went
                                               on a hayrack ride.
                                               I liked the slide there. It was fun.

                                               Today I went to the pumpkin patch. I got a pretty big
                                               pumpkin. There was a big and
                                               a little slide. When I got back to school, my pumpkin
                                               was almost orange. I had a
                                               very fun time. The hayrack ride was fun. Now the
                                               pumpkin patch is my favorite!
