My suggestions for summer reading since I will be a rising third grader; that a third grader should have a good handle on silent reading and placing himself/herself into reading chapter books, which are more in thought and a higher reading skills. I like reading Arthur Series Books by Marc Brown.
I learn new things every day—you should too. 100% of kids learn everyday. It's more fun and also easier to learn something you like to learn or read about. What do you like to do? Do you want to know more about something? Then read about it. I always hated to read. But I like it now. Pick a book that's right for you.
I treasure my loving family, my mom, grammi, papa and aunt—the love and support they give me. I have food, clothes, shelter and toys and a lot of educationaly books— I love to READ! I have my sight and good health, and family, and friends. Each day I wake up to another day to thank God also for all that is provided such as air, pets, my family, a new day, LIFE!
Christina wanted to buy a video game. It costs $10.00 and she only has $4.00. How much more money does Christina need to buy the viseo game?
It was an early bright morning and I was taking a hike with my mom. We saw this cave and we walked in. There was a sign on the door. It said, "Do Not Disturb." As we walked closer, we went into the door and there was a whole bookshelf of my favorite books, for example Geronimo Stilton and the Kingdom Keepers. We spent hours reading. There were some books for my mom too. And as we read deeper, I found a book that said mystery incorporated and there was a locket. I opened it and there was a special word "Mystery." Just then the cave began to shake. We had to get out of there quickly or we were doomed.
One day I was lying in my bed thinking, "Yuck! One more bowl of oatmeal and I'm going to be ill!" It was enough that I could not see my friends because it was raining, but now I even had to eat oatmeal again. I put my socks on and as I was walking out of my room, my dad jumped in and said, "Hey bud! Turn that frown upside down because I've got a surprise downstairs!" I thought it was just another fruit he added to the oatmeal to make me eat it. I went into the kitchen. To my surprise, my grandparents were there and they were decorating cupcakes. My day got better when it cleared up outside! Not one cloud in the sky. It was a perfect day to show them around Montreal!
A lot of people say I am lucky to be home schooled. But it is not that nice. I don't make as many friends since I don't go to school. Instead, I go to park days and summer camp. Also I have less homework. But the best part about being home schooled is that my mom is my teacher.
One day I woke up and I was 2 inches tall. I tried to get out of bed and I hurt my ankle. I went to the kitchen to get breakfast and yelled, "MOM, I'M HUNGRY!" She said, "What's that?" I tried to get on the school bus but I fell, and that's was just the beginning of my day.
There was a dog named June, and she was very loving, caring and a very fuzzy dog, but nobody ever cared for her. Then mom said, "Let's get a dog," and I was so excited. I went with her to pick one out, and I saw June. I asked the clerk if I could hold her, and she let me. When I put her in my arms she started licking me. So I told mom that I wanted June. So that's how I got my first dog — June.
Fossils are important because they can provide a visual, physical record of animals, plants, even bacteria from different eras of our world history and things on Earth. Fossils aslo give us important information from the past, how things survived in a certain environment. Fossils are very important, valuable objects.
This morning I woke up and thought, "Wow! We haven't seen my aunt in a few months but, tonight we will!" It was a great thought. So the night before, I packed, got my outfit for the next morning ready and everything I might need for the train! Yay! We get to see Auntie E today! So I got dressed and brushed my hair and teeth! Okay, I was ready! So all five of us got in the car and went to Union Station in DC. We then ate a great breakfast. After breakfast my dad, brother and grandpa went to get in line and me and my mom got gum (for me) and water. So then we got on the train and I knew it would be a great trip!
