This is a page of some of the prompted writing we did this year.



Slaves had a hard life even after they were all set free. They suffered from debt and racial segregation. So they escaped from bondage and went to the west. Those people were called Exodusters. After the civil war the 13 amendment was signed abolishing slavery even after all the slaves were set free they had nowhere else to go, so they stayed on the owner's property. The owners taxed them and put them in debt. That’s why the slaves moved west. If you want to learn more about these amazing people then I will tell you who are exodusters, what they did, and why they were important.


The first thing I will tell you about is “who are Exodusters?”. were a group of black African American people escaping from bondage and going to the west. The word Exodusters comes from the Bible when the Israelites were brought out of bondage and sent to freedom. There was one person who was determined to set all the slaves free. That man was called Benjamin (pap) Singleton. This man was born a slave and he wanted to bring his people to free soil. Pap Singleton tried countless times to set the slaves free, but on one of his attempts he succeeded. Pap Singleton and a couple of his friends bought a reservation in Kansas. In 1877 they advertised for the homesteaders to start an all black community. They attracted over 800 homesteaders.


The second thing I’m going to tell you about exodusters is what they did. The exodusters did more than just move out west. They had to travel far through harsh weather. When they got to where they were going they they didn’t have tents to sleep in so they had to to build a home. In regions where there were trees, some settles built log cabins, But in kansas there was only tall grass. after that they the pioneers learned that the dirt could be cut into bricks and piled up to make houses called sod busters.


The last thing I will tell you about the exodusters is why they are important. The exodusters were important because they got a lot of people out of debt by forming an all black community in kansas. Also another way they are important is they they encouraged people to move out west by putting up fliers and stuff like that. Another way that the exodusters are important is that they were very very hard worker. they didn’t just do normal things they did what the frontier demanded,for example if it meant hunting or being a mountain man that’s what they did.

In conclusion the exodusters did suffer from debt and a lot of other bad stuff but in the end they made it to free soil. In this piece I told you about these amazing hard working people called exodusters. What I told you about is who they were, what they did, and why they were important. Because of their hard work they got out of debt and bondage. Exodusters were great people.










Mowing the lawn can be a very demanding task If you don’t do it until the afternoon or the evening. That is why I believe that the best time to mow the lawn would be early in the morning, and here are three reasons to support why this statement is true. One you would have all your energy from resting the night before, since it is early on the morning you could have the rest of the day off if you finish in the morning, and finally the weather wouldn’t be as hot if you did it in the morning than if you did it in the afternoon.


The first reason why I think that mowing the lawn in the morning would be the best time of day to complete this task is, you would have all the energy from resting the night before. I believe that mowing the lawn in the morning would be best because if you started in the morning you’d still have all the energy from resting, so you could get the job done without being tired than if you did it in the afternoon or the evening. That is one reason why I believe that mowing the lawn would be the best in the morning.


The next reason why I believe that the best time of day to mow the lawn would be in the morning, is since it is early in the morning you could get the job done and have the rest of the day off. The best time of day to mow the lawn would be early in the morning because if you did it in the morning, and you got the job done you could have the rest of the day off without having to worry about mowing the lawn for the rest of the day, but if you didn’t do it during the evening you would have to rush to get the job done before the the sun goes down. That is the next reason why I believe that the best time to mow the lawn would be in the morning.


The last reason why I believe the the best time of day to mow the lawn would be in the morning, is the weather would not be as hot or as bad in the morning that the afternoon or the evening. The best time of day to mow the lawn would in the morning because the weather would not be as hot in the morning than if you mowed the afternoon or the evening. For example in the morning the sun is has just come up and the weather is most likely going to be warm. Also in the afternoon the sun gets the hottest. That is the last reason why I believe that the best time to mow the lawn is in the morning.
