I am really satisfied with the way my summer went. I did more than Just saw friends though, I went to Wisconsin, spent a week in Missouri by myself, and rode dirt bikes on our farm. While I was in Missouri I did a lot like help my Grandpa out and played a lot of baseball. Baseball is definitely my favorite sport and I did a lot of practicing over the summer. I play pitcher, and am excited to hopefully play for North soon. The last thing you should know about my summer is I got a pool put in and I enjoy swimming in it with my one year old Yorkie.
The first thing you should know about my reading ‘skill’ is that I never really get into a book unless I really like it. I have only got into a book 3 or 4 times before and when I do I usually finish it the day I start it. But if I have a goal to meet I will do what I have to do to get there. When I am falling behind with my reading goal my mom is usually the one to remind me. When it comes to writing I am not to skilled at that either. I always feel pretty proud of my writing pieces. I usually spend over an hour on my letters or reflections.
But when it comes to grading time I don’t get what I expected. That is one thing I would really like to work on this year. I hope to do very will in Language Arts class and learn a lot during these four quarters. I should leave the reading and writing subject by saying I tend to do better when my teacher is enthusiastic. My favorite books to read have to be Adventure or realistic fiction. I like these because I have always been an adventuress and I do things other people wont. Realistic fiction is also up there because I don’t enjoy books that I can not relate to.
For example I could relate toa book about a hunter or baseball player, But a book about an alien teacher or switching bodies Just doesn’t make sense. That is why I enjoy realistic fiction. When it comes to writing I like writing anything that relates to school. That is my favorite topic for one reason. I don’t enjoy writing and when I am writing something for school it means I am getting work done. Don’t take this the wrong way, I take pride in my work and spend a lot of time on it but it definitely is not my favorite thing to do.
My biggest Language Arts goal for this year is to get straight A’s all the way through. But what would make me happy is if I put forth all my effort and whatever time. Last year I struggled with that a little but I plan to step it up this year. I am also going to stay organized. I had some trouble with this last year and being able to find everything this year would really help. The last thing I want to accomplish is reading all the pages that I set up for a goal. If I can do all this I think it will be a good year. Sincerely,
