A Visit to the Water Park
There is a new water park in town. We go there on the first day of summer.
It has pools and water slides. There are sprinklers too.
The slides are scary at first. After the first ride, we love the water slides.
The sprinklers are cool on hot days. One of the pools makes its own waves. All the kids try to surf the waves. It is really fun.
The water park can be very crowded. There are many kids and adults, but they do not allow pets.
We really like the ice cream at the snack bar. They also sell pop and donuts. We all love the new water park.

Amusement Park Problem
The smell of popcorn was in the air. I could hear kids laughing and screaming. People were everywhere! The breeze felt warm on my skin. It was a perfect day at the amusement park.
My family and I wandered around the park, getting snacks and going on rides. I loved almost all types of rides! I loved to go fast and to spin around, to go down hills and to get splashed. The only rides I didn’t like were rides that turn you upside-down. My little brother, Ben, didn’t like those either, but my older sister, Laura, loved them. When we finally were near a ride that went upside-down, she started asking me to go with her. I told her I don’t like those rides, but she kept asking. Then she started whining because she didn’t want to go alone. I was feeling sympathy for her, so I started thinking that maybe I should go with her, even though I really don’t like to go upside-down. I looked to my parents for help.
“Matt, you are allowed to stand up for yourself. If something makes you feel really uncomfortable, you can tell people ‘no.’ It’s OK to tell Laura that you love her, but that you can’t go with her because going upside-down makes you uncomfortable. Be strong but kind when you tell her, so that she knows you’re serious,” Mom said.
“I don’t want to make Laura mad or sad, though,” I replied to Mom, “and I don’t want her to think I’m being mean.”
“There’s a difference between being aggressive and being assertive. You’re not saying ‘no’ to be mean to Laura or to hurt her feelings, you’re just listening to your own feelings to make sure you stay safe. It’s fine to tell her no for this,” Mom answered. “The same goes for Laura. If you ask her to arm wrestle and she doesn’t feel comfortable, she’s allowed to say ‘no,’ too. We are all allowed to stand up for ourselves to make sure we stay safe. Does that make sense?”
“Yes, thanks Mom,” I said. I told Laura that I love her and like to do things with her, but that I wasn’t comfortable going on upside-down rides today because they scare me. She was sad, but went on the ride by herself and was really happy when it was over. We had a great rest of the day at the amusement park!
K5 Learning – Grade 5 Reading
“Whee!” I could hear kids cheering all around me. It was Nicky’s birthday party and we were all having fun in the bounce house. We were jumping up as high as we could, and falling down to let the soft ground catch us. I loved jumping in bounce houses! I wish I could have one of these in my backyard, I thought.
I decided to look up the price of a bounce house when I got home. It was too expensive for me. Maybe if all of my friends and I put our money together, we could buy it! I found them playing outside and asked.
Jake said, “That would be awesome!”
“Yeah, I’m in,” replied Kate.
“I’ll see how much money I have at home,” said Janie.
The next day, we all gathered to see how much money we had. After counting it, we found out we had enough! I talked to my parents about my idea.
“That would be a lot of fun for you and your friends. We do have space in our backyard, but there are some things that I don’t think you’ve considered. We would have to use our electricity to blow it up every time someone wanted to use it. That would cost more money, and it would cost money to fix it if it ever got a hole in it or anything. Are you going to pay for the electricity and repairs yourself?” Dad asked.
“You’re right, I didn’t think about that…” I replied. “I could ask everyone to pay a little bit every time they use it, I guess.”
“That could work. But do you all have enough money for that?” asked Mom.
“I’m not sure…” I said.
“Maybe something besides a bounce house would work better, then. You like the bounce house because of how fun it is to jump high and not have to land on your feet, right? What about a big trampoline?” Mom suggested.
“That’s a great idea!” I exclaimed.
“Great! Before we agree to something like that, that all your friends in the neighborhood could use, we need to make sure everyone will be safe. That means we need to see if there is extra safety equipment we could buy for the trampoline, and we need to create rules. Does that make sense?” Dad asked.
“Yes,” I said. “I’ll talk to my friends tomorrow to make sure we all agree on the rules, then we’ll all have our parents look the rules over to see if there’s anything we missed.”
The next day, we all sat down and developed, or came up with, rules. We decided that we should not crash into each other, we should not jump off the trampoline, and we should not land on our heads or necks. Our parents all looked over the rules, and added one more: we needed an adult to be outside with us. That seemed fair to us, so we pooled our money together and got a trampoline!
