My New Home…..

Good morrow! I am Ellen . This is my new notebook
and mom said I should be very thankful. Anyway,
my Mom said we were moving to a new place. I did
some research and found out that I’m going to the
middle colony , and I‘m going to New York . There is
what I found out: Great Britain rules all the 13
colonies. And the colonies are in America. Here is a
few: Pennsylvania and Delaware. Oh. By the way a
Colony is a place that is settled by people from

another country and is ruled and controlled by another This is a picture of the 13
country Oh, I have to leave my great house in Britain colonies.Click on this pic to play a
where my life is perfect. But look on the bright side game!

my new house is already good to go. I have to go now,
my mom is calling. I need to go pack for my new

My Town Click on this pic to play a game!
This is a picture of a colonial house, we
My town is very simple. There is no bakereies where havethe same houses on all the blocks.
I can get cupcake. I mean it will never be the same
england, but I could get used to it. We have the
general store were you can buy and sell things like
you could sell butter and buy butter. And next door
we have the tavern where visitors can eat sleep.
Then we have the blacksmith, cooper,
carpenter,milliner, and wig maker. Then we have
the school, and streets. Then we have the meeting
house. That’s where my parents talk about important

Then if you go to the plantation street you can
see GIANT houses. They have slaves do the work
and they don’t pay them. Also if they run away they
get punished.

If you keep going on you will see a bunch of
normal houses. If you look closely, you can see my
house is the prettiest. And most houses don’t have a
ton of windows. That’s because glass is very scarce.

My Home

I have to say, my house is very pretty. I think ours is the prettiest in This is a regular home. Most
my street. We have 8 rooms house without including our well house people had similar houses.
were there is a well in the house ,a dairy,wich is were my mom
makes cheese and butter,,smoke house is were we cook meat and
our cellar, which is were we store fruits and vegetables. So, I have
my own room! Glass is very scarce, but we have a few windows
made from glass in every room. In our hall, we have a very elegant
sofas and clocks from europe. In my room I have a four-poster bed
with a tall post at each corner, curtains that could drawn together to
keep out cold air. My whole family’s mattresses were stuffed with

Most houses vey not very fancy. Most houses did not have big
rooms A whole family, which included: Grandpa,Grandma,
aunt,uncle,cousins,mom,dad,you,sister or brother in a 2 or 3 room.
The rooms were kitchen, living room which did not have sofas and
all that fancy stuff, and a small storage room. For beds they slept on
straw mattress which they pulled out of their little chests.

This is a picture of a colonial house. People
added extra rooms to make their house look
big and fancy.


Most people had slaves. They treated slaves
bad. And they made them work and the wite
people got the money.

Food I Ate taowtTewhh.eCaisrltieccihskthaaoenkyviibtcdcooehtooehk.neodtfhtaihsnedisse

The food I eat is really yummy. All the
things come from the farm. We cooked all the
meals and goods in the hearth. We have breakfast,
then we have dinner wich you call lunch, last we
have supper which you call dinner. Since we did
not have refrigerators, we needed a cool place to
keep our food fresh.we kept the food in the cellar.
The cellars of colonial homes were below ground,
as your basements are,but they were not connected
to the rest of the house. They had outside
entrances. Two large slanting doors led to each

Men hunted rabbits,squirrels, and deer. Near
the sea, kids hunted for fish. People were afraid
to drink water because it was not clean and
people got sick after drinking it. Instead they
drank apples and juice made from cherries and

This is the
main food.

My Day This is a one room
schoolhouse. A lot of kids
“Goodness Ellen, get up already. It’s 5:10!” I was so late! I of different ages studied in
jumped out of bed. Morning chores had to be done. I quickly there
got dressed. I went down and 8ate break fast. Then I went
to school. After school, I came home and helped mom make
supper then I got some juicy fruits. Later my father came
home and we ate supper.Most young girls learned skills
such as housekeeping, laundry, cooking, food preservation,
gardening, raising poultry, knitting, sewing, carding wool,
spinning, and child-rearing from their mothers. They also
learned how to use herbs to treat illness. Although
children in Colonial times didn't have much free time to
play, they made their own games out of their chores. Daily
chores normally consisted of carrying wood, husking corn,
retrieving berries, carding wool, and gathering eggs. Now lets
see what my parents jobs are.

United States Of America” And instead of a king, they had a president,
George Washington.

outside and looking at the new flag. It’s the betsy ross flag! After a ton of
years of war. We won! We're our own free country. By the way I have 2 twins!
