Haunted houses abound in Great Lakes students' stories

Second graders at Great Lakes Elementary School have written stories about haunted houses.

"The Day That I Make a Haunted House"

One day I was walking to the park with my mom when we found a pile of bricks. I asked my mom if I could build a haunted house. She said, "Yes."

First, I went to K-Mart and bought a skeleton that followed footprints. Then I bought some black paint that makes bricks stick together.

I cut eyes out of bed sheets and hung them up. They looked like ghosts.

Finally Halloween came. The haunted house was finished. I invited my friends to the haunted house, and they ran away when the skeleton followed their footprints.

"I Made a Haunted House"

One day before Halloween I was riding my bike. I saw a haunted house, so I decided that I would build one too.

I went to the store and got some nails and a vampire and a ghost. I made a haunted house. It was really scary. I got a mummy and a coffin, a bat and two black cats.

I called my friends, and they came over. We went in the haunted house. My brother jumped out and scared them. They were scared and so was I.

"How I Built a Haunted House"

One day before Halloween I was walking on 21st Street. I went to Target and bought some costumes.

I went home and asked my mom if I could go to Wal-Mart and get some wood, paint and nails, and she said yes, and so I did.

I went to Wal-Mart and got some decorations and then made my Halloween house. My decorations were scary and creepy. I had vampires and skeletons and bats all over the place.

I invited my friends Rachael, Missy, Sarah and my aunt Kelsey. Then on Halloween night we all slept in my haunted house.

I went to Sam's Club with my mom. We got bats and skeletons and mummies. Then we went to Target. We got wood and nails. Then we started to build the haunted house. "It is done!" I said to my mom.

I called Erin and Laurin, Rylee and Karissa and Kendra and Annika. They came to my Halloween party. We ate chips, some vegetables and cake and pizza. We played Guess Where?, and we played Monopoly Jr. and cards.

"The Day That I Went in the Haunted House"

One day I saw some people making a haunted house, and I said, "Gee! Why don't I try making a haunted house?"

I went home and started to build. On Sept. 10 I went to Menards with my family. I got some paint, some nails and some wood. We got some witch's hats and some decorations. When it was dark out, we played sardines with my friends and family. Then we started to build the haunted house.

We painted the haunted house orange, and we painted some black on it. We put the decorations in. then we put the witch's hats on the roof.

After we played sardines, we played another game in the haunted house. We bobbed for apples. Erin went first. Then Mikayla tried. She got soaking wet! We have fun in the haunted house.

"When I had an Idea"

One day I had an idea. My idea was to build a haunted house.

I went to Target. I got a skeleton and then I got some wood and some help. Some people that can build stuff came to help. I got some decorations too.

Then I got some windows for my haunted house. I had it almost done.

I was finally done with it. I invited some friends. We played Halloween tag.
