The following story was written by one of the 3rd grade students in Mrs. Geraldine Batterberry’s Class, Cherry Avenue Elementary. “The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs” by Betty G. Birney was the inspiration behind the story.
My first Wonder is Doctor Augustin’s office, which is in Sayville. He helped me, when I was born, to get to my next Wonder, which is on Colony Drive.
I live on this street, it is so nice. I have lots of friends on the block.
My next Wonder is Ralph’s Italian Ices. Have you ever tasted a cold ice? My favorite ice is cookie dough! It tastes so good.
My other Wonder is the Sayville Library. My Mom and Dad always take me to the reading club. It’s so much fun.
My next Wonder is the Bay and the beach. We always go there. I like to sit on the bench and watch the waves. Have you ever felt the sand go right through your toes? It feels so good!
My next Wonder is Broadway Avenue, that’s where I cheer. Have you ever felt that perfect breeze that just relaxes you?
My last Wonder is Room 125 (in Cherry Avenue School). I have an awesome teacher and great friends.
I love all my Wonders.
