How we got Woodpeckers

How we got Woodpeckers
By Xavier and Kayla
Once upon a time there was a boy who love to carve things with wood. One day after school at around 3 o'clock pm he went outside and started carving. He carved and carved and carved all day long. By the time he was done his hands had blisters. When he finished it was so late he couldn't see a thing.

When he went inside his mom named Lexie yelled at him because he came home so late. Later he snuck out and carved seven more things, but something weird happened while he was carving his seventh. A big gust of wind came and blew him off his feet. Now it was 12 o'clock. He was really scared then the wind stopped. He realized he wasn't floating, he was flying his arms were changing into wings. He had feathers and no legs just feet and he only had three toes and fingers. He was a woodpecker. From this day on woodpeckers have always looked like this.
Tree toes no legs.
