About Me

Article posted October 4, 2007 at 11:20 PM GMT0 • Reads 180

Hi, my name is Zareya. I have a four year old brother named Nasir and a twelve year old brother named Juwan and a fourteen year brother named Jalon and a nine year old twin sister named Zakeya and a thirty three year old mom named Cherry and a dad named Aaron. I don’t have any pets because my mom doesn’t like pets. My teacher’s name is Mr. Ahlness. He is a great teacher. I already turned nine years old. I love my family very much. Two weeks ago my mom came to Mrs. Salter’s class. My mom and dad bought me a small music player yesterday. My best friend is Zakeya. We hang out together. She is the only one that I can count on.

Changing Desks

Changing Desks





The way we change desks in Room12 is our teacher makes us change desks after three weeks is up. He decides where we sit by pulling point slips and putting them on desks. We pull the point slips out from our math contest box.



I think people should like changing desks because you can sit by a wise and helpful partner. You and your partner can work together to get your work done.



My new partner Kayla is smart and we both work together. I think through these past three weeks we will be great friends. If you sit by different kids you get to know them better and become very great friends. I think by the end of this year you will get to sit by everyone and all of you will become great friends.



My teacher makes it good for everyone to sit in different seats because he wants us to get to know each other. That is why I like changing desks.

On The School Dance

Article posted November 1, 2007 at 11:29 PM GMT0 • Reads 148

One day on Halloween there was a girl named Mary. She had a school dance. She wanted to go but she thought that everyone would laugh at her. She decided to go but she didn’t know what to wear. She went to the dance with this boy who never liked her. She was wearing a beautiful white dress but when she started to dance she was dancing by a cup of juice and the juice spilled on her and her dress got very wet and everyone started to laugh at her. She got very mad and she turned red and her head started to turn a lot of times. While her head was turning she was saying die a lot of times. Bad stuff started to happen to everyone.



They say that if you go into your bathroom and turn out all the lights and look into your mirror and say bloody Mary three times she’ll be in your mirror. I tried it but it did not work. My lights started to blink and my cousin came in and it stopped. I was very mad because she opened the door so hard that it hit me in the face and I yelled. She said it was my fault because I was in front of the door. She made me cry very much. She was kidding, and I got very mad. On the next part she never wanted to go to another school dance. That is the way my auntie tells it. That’s what happened on my cousin’s birthday party. She is a girl. Now I’m going to tell you how her party went. We had a lot of candy.



We put makeup on. We also had a quiz and we had bottles of Gatorade. My mom was wondering why we were telling scary stories. My dad was wondering why we look tired. My little cousin was so scared that she wanted to go to sleep with her dad. My big cousin Giovanni was so scared that she went to her room to go to bed and she was the birthday girl. I am going to tell you my other big cousin’s story. It was about when she was alone at home and there was someone at the door that was knocking the trees down and he opened the door and he started to bring everyone in and he said, “Can I can I bring Bloody Mary and the Boogey man.?’’ She said sure and they had a party. All of sudden when her mom came back they weren’t there. She said it was true but we disagreed with her. My mom was so mad when I told her because she disagreed with her. My dad was so happy to see us so he asked how the party went. My Auntie was so nice that she gave each of us two bags of candy.

When I first saw my baby brother he was small and he had long nails. He was cute. He is four years old right now and he knows how to read little books.



Now that he’s old I cherish him. I go to the store with him and I share with him.



He’s very small so my dad wants me to be nice and fragile with him. I Love him so much. I will never hurt him or leave him with anyone. He isn’t my blood brother but he’s my brother.



He is my little brother and he is my love and my life and that will always be the same.



My little brother won a young Hooper award for school and I was so proud of him.

My favorite recess activity is to play wall ball. I just play big four square because I want play with my sister.



My favorite home games are to play basketball and volleyball. My favorite sport is kickboxing.

My dad’s birthday is today. He is thirty three. He worked this morning. He works as a garbage man. One day he came home smelling like dirt and smelly recycle because they put some garbage in the recycle bin. Were going to my Auntie Shawn’s house today so my dad can relax and spend his birthday as a good day instead of watching over his four children.

The Way the Turkey Got Away

Article posted November 20, 2007 at 08:46 PM GMT0 • Reads 226

If I was a turkey and I was about to get eaten I would wait until no one was looking and escape.



I am a little turkey and I have two brothers, a sister, a mom, a dad. We are all together. We live in a vinerd. I am the second youngest. It goes in this order. Mom, Dad, Jalon, Juwan, Me, Zakeya. Me and my sister are twins and 9 years old, Jalon is 14, Juwan is 12, Mom is 33, Dad is 33. We are a happy family.



We went across country. Someone found us and took us to their family’s house to cook us. Before they could get the material when he turned around we escaped.



When he turned he looked through the window and saw us running.



He came running after us but he was too slow to catch us so he had nothing else to cook.



He went shopping the next morning and got a turkey and other good things.



We spent our Thanksgiving with our family. It was great instead of cooking things we played games.



We never got captured ever again.



We were very happy because of that very day on Thanksgiving Day.



My dad was very sad when Thanksgiving Day was over because he loved eating and spending time with his family and friends and so were we all. My mom thought that the day of Thanksgiving was the best day of the year because you eat and have a family gathering.

Take Care Of A Baby

Taking Care of A baby



First you should feed him but only if he is hungry. Secondly you should always be by his side and never leave him with someone you don’t know, in this case a stranger. Before you take care of someone you should ask if you have permission first. If this is your first time you should be by a grown- up to help you with your responsibilities. Next you should put his head on a pillow and hold his body; you also must put his bottle in his mouth. You need to be careful making the food. You have to grab a bottle and put a little bit of water, grain, and rice and put the top on and shake the bottle and test it to see if it is warm enough. Later you should keep rocking him until he falls

asleep. Finally you should let him sit up and then put him in his swing. Before you do that change his diaper.

My Little Cousin Noah

November 21, 2007



My cousin Noah is five months old. He is my littlest cousin. He is nine years younger than me. I always visit him over the weekend. I get to feed him, make his bottle milk him, and take care of him, burp him, and baby sit him with, Tariq, Shania, Zakeya, and we sometimes have our Uncle Shed over with us because he lives next to Shania’s mom which is his sister. My cousin Noah is cute, and he is not very tough to handle with, my cousin Shania is six years old and I have to take of her too. Tariq is my little cousin but I’m only older than him by a month and three days. Zakeya is my little sister and I’m older than her by seven minutes. We are twins. I came out before her. We are both nine years old. Noah is Shania’s little brother. As you can see that I am older than everyone that I named in this article. My dad calls him fat because he is so fat for how old he is and I agree. My dad does know his name but he prefers fat. Auntie Shawn is also my dad’s little sister. My mom thinks he is cute so every time she comes to my Auntie Shawn’s house she goes inside to see him and give hugs and kisses. My Auntie Shawn thinks that we are all old enough to take care of Noah with out her there to make sure that we are old enough to be responsible.

My Auntie Regina and Her Daughter Lela

December 12, 2007



My Auntie Regina is at home right now and she’s with her daughter Lela and she burped up on my shirt yesterday and I was going to take a shower but I had to go to bed at the time of the day. My Auntie had me hold her this morning and when I picked her up she didn’t want me she wanted her brother Dominique he is my cousin. He came from Houston Texas and he’s living with me, my mom, Jalon, Juwan, and Zakeya. My brother is at school right now but he has to walk home with me and Zakeya sometimes and he said he rather walk with us the rest of our life than let us walk by ourselves and something bad happens and then he would cry. I understand what he is talking about so I am not going to walk by myself until I think I’m old enough to not be scared or be able to take care of my little sister Zakeya because since I’m her big sister I have to take really good care of her and don’t let anything happen to her because I don’t want to see her get her. I am only seven minutes older than her but we came out on the same day and around the same time. Dominique is older than Lela. Lela is two months old so I’m nine years older than her. My dad is almost the oldest out of his sisters and brothers. I used to think that he was the oldest but now I’m older to understand more things that I’ve never knew before. I have a little more stuff to say. My little cousin Lela is my littlest cousin that I have so far and I hope to have more once I get older. I hope I have much more and my family is wonderful already and I hope they will always be nice and very wonderful there whole life. My friends are just like my family because they always are sweet and nice to me and my little sister Zakeya. My dad is going to my school tomorrow to pick me up and take me to his house and spend the weekend with him then go back home. He always comes and picks me and my sister up on Fridays to spend a little time with him on the weekends. My mom expects us to be home by Sunday to get ready to go to school the very next day. We have to go to school for five days a week, and have three days to do what ever we want to do. So it’s not fair because we have a lot of days to work at school and only have three days of fun!! We only want it to be five days of fun and three days of school and learning.

What I’m going to do on Christmas

December 18, 2007



What I’m going to do on Christmas is that I’m going to be with my family opening presents. Christmas is not about getting a lot of presents, it’s about having a great time with your family. My dad is going to come to my house to watch us open our presents. My mom and dad always give us extra presents for our behavior. If we were bad we didn’t get any extra presents. We always get presents at our Auntie Shawn’s house because every year we be good and that’s the only time of year when they're all nice to us all.



Last year my dad forgot the present he got for Zakeya so he had to go home get the present come back to our house give to Zakeya and it was a bag full of a lot of movies from Disney Channel. My sister was so excited because she had the movies she wanted even though she didn’t have it on her Christmas list my dad knew that she really wanted it for one of her Christmas presents. My mom and I always watch other people open their presents when we're done.



Every year I always get presents because I’m good every year. Maybe because I always get promotions and also get rewards. Last year I got a Dolphin award that means you’ve been good that week. I also got a Dolphin of the week award. “I said that I should have been Dolphin of The Year. ‘’My mom laughed when I said that.



I am definitely going to my Auntie Shawn’s house because she always gets presents for each and every one of us. My mom probably is going to go to Shania’s birthday party to give a card, money, and say happy birthday=http://!

My Time on the Xo

February 1, 2008



What I did on the Xo was write a story because I wanted to try something different on it because I’ve always recorded a video on it. My favorite thing to do on it is to make videos with friends or by yourself. I want to do my best and do very educated or educational things at school and show that I want to go to college and graduate and become a basketball player in the NBA. Even though you can’t have girls on the NBA I just forgot what you call a professional girls basketball team. My mom and dad want us all to become a basketball champions but still do what what’s good for us and make the right choices.

The Substitute Ms. Buglino

February 28, 2008



My substitute in 2nd grade was named Ms. Buglino. Ms. Buglino was nice, she didn’t have a hard time teaching.



In the beginning she met us all when we were making number strips. She was walking around the room watching us.



Ms. Buglino was a substitute for Mrs. Connstinett. Soon came around Willy. Mrs. Connstinett’s son she couldn’t teach. So Ms. Buglino became our teacher.



Ms. Buglino started by Halloween. We had a contest for the best pumpkin. I went to the next level but someone beat me because the used paint.



The rest of the year we did fine. We had ice cream in the cafeteria.

The Perfect Christmas

December 17, 2007



A perfect Christmas would be if everyone got exactly what he or she wanted to get for Christmas. I want thirteen things on my list but I can’t tell you because you might steal my ideas. Santa will know that you did that to me and he won’t like it. He must know that I’ve been a good girl this year. I’ve been a good girl every year and I know that if you know you're going to be on the naughty list you don’t be good because you want a thing that a one in a life time chance to get. If you do it for that then you will not get any presents at all but if you do it because you want to be good then you will definitely get the presents you want to get. That’s what I’ve learned during this Christmas. I also learned by watching TV never lie that you’ve been good and you know that you’ve been naughty this year and I know not to be naughty. You also can’t get all the things you want. My mom said you would only get a couple of the presents you want. My mom gave me an idea this year that she buys some things off my list that are affordable to buy. My mom was so proud that she gave us money for being good.

Our Four Xo's

Article posted March 6, 2008 at 09:11 PM GMT0 • Reads 181

Our Four Xo’s





We have to figure out a way how to share all of our Xo’s to make it fair in this classroom because there’s no use of having four Xo’s if we can’t share it.



Our Xo’s can do a lot of things. They can chat, play games, make music, you can write, paint, it has a calculator too. There are a lot of things it can do and produce sound with.



There are a lot of colors we have, purple and orange on one, and blue, and orange and green, and red.



My favorite thing two do on it is to chat because you can communicate with others of that name because if it doesn’t have a name it won’t send to anything. I’ve learned that when you chat to one Xo it goes to everyone.



My teacher has us going down the list of the student of the week and that’s how we share for now but it’s going to change in a week or so.



We also have to help people get on what they want to because people have a hard time getting on or they just don’t know what to do when they get on.

Why You Should Pray

February 6, 2008



I think that when you are having a bad dream or a bad day you should pray. My mom says everyday before you go to bed you should pray for your family and that you will have a good dream. God always says to be a Christian, then you will have a great day and year. God wants everyone to live in peace and harmony and you will be great and really fine. My mom is a Christian my whole family is because we believe in God and really can change the world and no one else can. You can actually change the world if you have help. My mom is very nice and we all pray with each other all night long and that’s what God wants everyone to be happy and that’s what I want too. My family is cute but that’s not all, they are they are believers and so am I. I also want my family to be strong but also be good. My dad is very good too. He is my only dad so I have to treat him that way. My dad is also a Christian. My whole family is as I said before. My family would like to see this story because they all think my stories are interesting. My family also want to be entertained when someone is saying something it shouldn’t be boring because we don’t like to entertained by boring things because then we aren’t entertained that’s why we want to pray and that’s why I want to print this and also entertain my family and still be able to pray. I pray every night and I listen to this song that J moss sings and it's gospel music, it is called Praise the Lord. I always listen to that song all the time and I am not going to be offended or intimidated by anything because I can pray to the lord and night and that is why I pray. I also ask god for the food that we have to eat every morning and every night. I also pray for my family at night because I miss them or I hope that they will be safe was ever they are. My family is all a kid could ever ask because they make me feel better. They also make sure that I am okay

March 10, 2008



On Saturday night. My weekend was great because a sleepover and saw ATL and Who’s Your Caddy and when we were done watching movies we stayed up for a little while and when I went to bed it was like 3:00am.



On Sunday. We also played volleyball outside and football. The neighbor’s mom was coming out on their porch to see what we were doing to make sure we weren’t picking on her children. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t know what they were saying to each other.



On Friday I was at my dad’s until Saturday because we were waiting to be taken to the bowling alley to play bowling, play some games that have coins needed. Then we had a room there to eat our cake and food and then live so we can start the party at there house.



We also got to go play basketball for just like a minute because it was too dark and some people were scared because there were dogs around and we couldn’t see at night because it was too late to play.



Then my mom came on Sunday and stayed for like and hour played with my family went to my brother’s game and went home to play and do things for a couple of hours and then went to bed.





March 11, 2008



What’s on my mind is what I’m going to do at science because it might be hard because Ms. Salter asked my mom if she can help us with science today. I think it’s with the big thick strings because she said next time we are going to do something with different shaped strings.



What’s also on my mind is my grandpa because I haven’t seen him in a long time. It has been like three weeks since I’ve seen him starting from February.



My dad is also doing things on the weekends that I don’t know about so that’s what I’m wondering about it.



My mom is also doing things while I’m at school but I’m happy that she can do something together.





March 12, 2008

I feel great about my report card coming out on Monday because I always get good reports on all my report cards. I’ve never had one saying that I was mean or I wasn’t listening.



My mom looks at them and then we she thinks there good we go to Target and get things that we want because we did good. That’s not why I like report cards the reason is because I get to be excited that I had a good one this year.



What happens with my report cards is my mom always has our dresser in the living room so she puts it there so she can show it to my daddy or to keep for us to compare with the other ones we have when we get older.



My dad sometimes gets me clothes when I have good report cards and I always like to wear them that day we I get them because my mom helps my dad pick something out for us.



I always know that I’m going to get good grades because I take my time and I also get help with everything if I don’t know it.





March 13, 2008



What’s on my mind is what I’m going to do on the weekends. Also I know what I’m going to bring for show and tell this week. My mom has to say that it’s okay if I can take it from her book that I’ve looked in before last weekend.



Also I am wondering where my grandpa is today and where will he be tomorrow. I haven’t seen him since February. My mom said that he’s doing fine but I still want to see him soon because I miss him very much, we all do.



My dad also is doing something important today that I’m excited for him to do but I can’t say what he’s doing because it’s a family secret.



My dad’s Dad, and, Mom and Sister, and Brothers I haven’t seen in a while and I miss them to but I think my dad doesn’t want me to go because he doesn’t even know where my Auntie Shawn lives because she moved.



I miss my family that I don’t see all the time because I have to be with my mom and sister and brothers because I have to go to school every week day so I can get a education and go to college and get a basketball scholarship.



March 14, 2008

My weekend plans are to spend time with my dad and my family. I am also trying to do more things with my Auntie Shawn and her baby. I don’t know why I haven’t seen her in a while because I miss her very much and I’d love to see her before I have to go back to school on Monday.



My mom also might have to go to the gym in the morning so my brothers might have to take care of me and Zakeya tomorrow and the day after that.



I haven’t seen my Auntie Regina in a long time and her children so that’s what I want to get a chance to do this weekend and I might call my cousins and old friends that I miss so much they were like that’s what I want in friends, friends that are nice to me, don’t leave me out of things, and people who do yell at me.



My family is sometimes away from me and that’s what I don’t like but I’d rather stay here with some great friends and enjoy what I’ve got which is very great friends.

Good Luck And bad Luck

Good Luck and Bad Luck

By: Zareya



One day I had bad luck because I was taking a shower. I was using hot water then it turned to cold water.



I had good luck because my dad gave me five bucks and I didn’t ask for it.



My mom went to bed and my brothers were chasing me and I ran into a wall. I hurt myself really bad.



I’d rather have good luck than bad luck. I’d rather have good luck because I’d be really happy with what happened to me.



Both At Once



When I was at my dad’s house I was having bad luck because I was rolling in the grass and got my hair dirty. What made that good luck was because I had so much fun.



I got money from my mom that was good luck but at the same time it was bad luck because something happened to it.



I ‘m trying to say that there are sometimes times and explanations how you have good and bad luck at the same time.



When You Have Good Luck



When you have good luck you don’t know how to react but you’d be pretty excited see you next time.

My Experiences As A Little Girl

My Experiences as a Little Girl

By: Zareya

My experiences as a little girl are that you don’t have to worry about any thing because your parents can do and worry about everything. I will not be treated like a little girl forever. My mom says “That sometimes you have to be strong for your self and learn how it is to grow and be a woman.” My dad says that he wants me to always take care of my little brother because I love him and I don’t want to let him get hurt and I don’t want to either. So my parents are right, you can’t act like a baby you have to act like a young lady because I am not a baby. I’ve all ready had my baby days and they are over with now because I am in third grade now. My brothers say that they don’t want me grow up fast and I don’t either but I can’t always be a child forever. I have to grow up like my big brothers are doing right this very moment. I can be a girl for now but I have to learn how to be tough for myself and grow up more. My grandpa and grandma are grown up now and I want to grow old and safe just like them and my mom and dad. My brothers are going to need my help in their lives because Jalon will seventy- four, Juwan will be seventy- two, and Zakeya and I will be sixty- eight. I understand they will need me and I will most definitely need them and my whole entire life and that’s the truth. My parents need me too and I will need them because I am still young to them too. My family is all I need and I’m sure that you need them very much and I’m sure you need your family very much also because everyone does eventually. My family needs me too.

My Brother’s Thirteenth Birthday

My brother’s birthday is today and he got $100 dollars from my mom. It’s his first teen age. I’m excited but I can’t go to church today because I’ll be with him for the day. I want to see how excited he’ll be when he opens his card. I am very happy because now we have two people in the house who are teens. I can’t wait until I’m at least two digits next year. I am proud of him because he has to be responsible and act like a gentleman and still be good at school while he starts to grow up. My mom will be happy to know that he’s done well at school and is in honors math. He has been a great brother and I expect to see the same as he grows up. I love him so much. It’s not because he gives me stuff it’s because he gives me love like a brother should to his sister. He also will do anything to know that I’m okay. He is going to be treated like a teen by helping around the house. Helping mom get groceries and exercising like my older brother does sometimes with my mom. I am happy that he’s thirteen because over the years I was talking about him being a teen because he has more responsibilities to do not just at home, everywhere he’s at. He deserves to be a role model for me because I will always look up to him.

WASL Testing

April 15, 2008



My test was easy because so far it was about reading stories and after that we had to answer questions about the story. My favorite story to read was about the miniature horse teaching its owner how to get around places. The miniature horse has to wear tiny shoes because he was in a grocery store. The word miniature means that it’s small. He needed a miniature horse to help him walk places because the man was blind. The other story about the same miniature horse was about the horse helping his owner who was a woman who was blind also. The horse saved the woman from getting hit by a person a bicycle. The horse has to listen to what its owner says. It says that when the owner said to cross the street while the cars were coming but she didn’t listen to that. I think that the second part of the reading WASL Test had much about the animals helping their blind owners.

Today is the third day of the WASL and we started math today. The hardest part of this test so far is when I had to match up the same angled triangle just like the one someone else did. My favorite part of it was when we had to do the one with the sandwiches because that made me hungry. I am excited because at White Center Heights Elementary School they didn’t have the third graders do the WASL they had to wait until they got into fourth grade. I think that so far out of the reading test and math test, the math was the easiest. My mom is happy to see me do well. My second favorite part was when I got to fill in the bubbles because that was when we had to pick the best choice. My dad wants me to get good grades too. My least favorite part was when they had us look at a problem and see if we could make the equations make more sense.





April 17, 2008



I think that the second part of the math WASL today was harder than the first part that we did yesterday. I think that my grade is okay right now because I’m not done yet. My grade might not be as great as I think it could be. My mom might be happy with my grade but I get it next year. Why I think that that I’m getting a good grade is because the readings test because I’m really good at reading. In my second grade class at White Center Heights Elementary School and I did really well at my reading test. The reason why it was easy for me is because I passed the limit for the reading test on my first try. I was so excited that when I went home and told my mom and she was so excited too. My mind is on my fourth grade reading test because it’s going to be much harder than third.





April 18, 2008’



Today is the last day of the WASL and I’m excited because I don’t have to do anymore work. I’m also excited because now I know how it feels like to have a WASL. At White Center Heights Elementary School they do it for more than just five days. I also think that I’m excited because I can stop going to sleep early. My mom also had me eat breakfast every morning this week so I did. My sister didn’t eat today. I still think that my sister did well on her WASL. My mom should be proud of us. My big brother started his WASL on Tuesday. He still did more than me because he is in Middle School and they do way more than us. My brother is in a high School and he starts his WASL next weekend. He should have started this weekend so next weekend he wouldn’t have to do it.

Earth day

Article posted April 22, 2008 at 10:28 PM GMT0 • Reads 158

My mom tells me not to leave stuff around because of the environment. I think that my mom says that because we all have to keep the Earth clean and safe for everyone. I think that for the Earth I think things that I do might not be good for the Earth. My parents both tell me things about the Earth that I should know at my age. My mom was like me when she was younger. She was tough, smart, and a good listener. My mom and dad sometimes don’t do well for the Earth but sometimes they don’t. My mom tries to do the right thing and that’s a good thing to do. My mom has us to take out the garbage and pick up stuff from out in the yard that we all play in. My mom usually has us get out side so we can enjoy the outdoors and the Earth. My dad has us go outside with our little brother so he can play because my dad doesn’t trust people and he don’t want him to get hurt. My family always goes outside and plays sports like basketball to enjoy what we have which is a great outdoors. My family always hangs out together and we start up a few basketball games like parents against children. My mom has us exercise at Alki Beach so we can ride our bikes around the place. We all have to enjoy the Earth sometime and today would be a good day to do it since it is Earth Day today. I’m going to ask my mom if she can go outside with us today because she never does because of the weather. Earth day is today and today is my mom’s birthday too. Makes you think who Mother Nature is. This day is Earth Day

Dear Mr. Malone,

Thank you for Mr. Malone thank you for loaning the xo Tami to us because I had a great time with it. I would like to tell you how we shared it; we shared it by giving everybody a turn with it like for fifteen minutes. We got to experience a lot of things with your wonderful xo. Your xo was the best to me because I usually used that one in class. I’d be crushed to see it gone. Thank you for letting it be with us for some quite a bit of time because you’re the one who made us be able to have four xo’s. I am happy that we even have more than one xo. My favorite thing about it is when the music comes on. I like when I make videos and pictures on the xo. I think the xo is the best kind of computer in the world because it does more things and has an activity were you can click on things and It makes the sound of that.

My weekend was great.



I went to my dad’s house on Friday with my little cousins who were only girls, my little brother, and my little sister of course. My dad told me and my sister to go outside to watch them play because none of them were able to watch themselves.



On Saturday I went to my Auntie Shawn’s house to play with my little baby cousin Noah because I missed him. His birthday was May 31, 2008 and I bought him a truck for his first birthday because it was a lot of fun to play on. Noah always scratches me when I come over. On Saturday I also had to feed him because his mom was helping Grandma.



On Sunday I had to go to my cousin’s high school graduation because it was a very important moment. My cousins Portia and Jamill are the ones who graduated from high school. My cousin Andrea is graduating tomorrow because they go to different schools.

What’s on my mind is my Auntie Gina’s birthday because it’s today and I wrote her a few words to explain that I love her lot. She lives in Federal Way so I don’t know if I’ll be able to go to her birthday party, last year we went skating and she fell down when she was getting to the tables because she might have not had control.



My cousin also has her graduation today and I don’t know if I can do both in one day because two of my cousins already graduated and I have to go see another one because I don’t want to go to two peoples graduations and not go to my other cousins graduation.



Field day is what I’m thinking about too because the field day is tomorrow and I have to do something with my friends and I don’t want to forget about because it’s important.



My baseball practice is on Thursday too so this time I actually want to make to my baseball practice because last time the field was too dangerous so we weren’t able to go to it. My mom got a call from my coach saying it’s too muddy to play on.

I’m looking forward to going to Florida again because I had a lot of fun there and I want to go back. Going to Florida was special because that was my first plane trip and I was so excited to sit next to my older brother.



I like going to my Dad’s house to swim every summer but I might not be able to do it this year unless his friend Lauren is able to take my brother’s, sister, and I to go to the pool. My mom has to say if we have permission to go to the pool.



Last summer I went to a lot of places. My Auntie Gina took my sister and I to this pool and this year we could go to the Wild Waves Theme Park. I’ve always had to go to pools first before I went there because I had to learn how to swim in regular water before going to rides to slide on and then fall into the water safely and carefully. My cousin Jayde should come too. My mom doesn’t like swimming but I want to try and make her come to swim this time.

My Blog

June 10, 2008



My article is good to have because I like going to my blog and reading the things I’ve already written because it is great to be able to have the opportunity to make something like a book because not everyone can do this. My favorite thing about my blog is when I read it because reading something you made is a really good thing to do. My mom was shocked to see my blog when she came to my class for our teacher’s conference with the parents because she likes all the stories I made and the words I used. My blog made the teacher’s conference turn out really good.



My first story was About Me so my readers could learn about me and my life. I think that me having a blog is like a one in a life time chance because not every kid is able to have a blog. My blog is the most thing I like about our class is that we have a lot of xo’s, laptops, computers that we're able to use for our blogs. The blogs are what we do mostly on the computers. My favorite story is the Halloween story because it’s funny and it was long. My favorite article that would be new is the one I’m writing now. I am very excited to have a blog. My mom signed a permission slip saying that I could continue to have my blog and I could everything I did on the blog and on my computer, my journal, my language, and my spelling.



I’m going to continue to write in my blog in the summer. I can only blog at the library and my god sister. I have to write things about the summer. The summer is really interesting to write about so I should get a lot of comments. I’m looking forward to writing about going to Florida if I go to Florida. I would be happy if I went to Florida again because I can see my friends again. They were hard to be away from because they were a lot of to be around. See you next time in the hot time.
