I Survived 6th Grade
My experience for 6th grade was great. My first day at Portola Middle School was horrible and terrifying. First, I could not find any of my classes anywhere for a while. Second, I couldn’t get my lockers open. Last, it scary to be around the 7th and 8th graders. In homeroom, I was really scared of Ms. Shores, she looked very scary. After came period 1, where I had no idea where to go. I went all the way to the bungalows (S-3, S-4, etc.) when I supposed to walk across the 8th grade lawn to Ms. Sheriff’s Creative Writing class. I was late to class, but was not marked tardy because we were still getting used to it.
The second thing that happened, during period 2, the students were learning how to open lockers. I was standing there trying to open my locker. I couldn't open my locker. I couldn't open my locker that period until my homeroom teacher opened it for me. I can't tell you how stupid I felt when my Ms. Shores opened my locker in one try and I couldn't even open in like the 50 tries I did. When I went to P.E., they told us that we were not going to get our locker until we start to dress. I was really happy because I didn't need to deal with another locker problem for a couple of weeks. During lunch, I didn't recognize too many people from last year. I only sat with a few friends at the lunch tables at lunch time. I felt like I was in the 1st grade again in front the 7th and 8th graders. I felt as if the 8th graders were going to bully me or knock me down to the ground. I kind of felt really scared in front of them. the 8th graders used to stare at us as if they were going to kill us. The 7th graders just used to laugh at us. I wanted to punch them until they got a bloody nose, but I knew I would get in trouble. When I was in 5th grade, we were the tallest and biggest kids in the school than the other kids. Now, we are the smallest kids in the school. A week or two passed now. They expected us to know where

    Writing is one of the things I used to hate the most. I hate it when teachers would ask us to pass an essay. I hate it when I have to compete in writing contests because teachers asked me to. Nevertheless, winning in those contests boosted my self-confidence. I thought I hate writing but I am good at it so I started to like it a bit. Things changed when I had two writing classes in college. I realized I was not good in writing. The first writing class I had to attend in college was all about writing…

    Personal Response: I really liked the book </>I Survived The Hindenburg Disaster by Lauren Tarshis. I enjoyed the part where Hugo had to protect his friend who was a U.S. spy. He had to distract him so the spy could get away. The reason Hugo was in an area he wasn't supposed to be was because he was trying to get his sister's dog for her because she had malaria. There was an evil looking man that caught him and asked why he was in that restricted area. He froze in place and didn't know what to say…

    I believe that I deserve this grade because I always attend class and only missed two during the semester. I rarely show up late and and I am usually ready to take notes during our lectures. Although, I do not participate in class, I am surely attentive and a respectful listener towards my teacher and classmate’s questions or opinions. I know that in the future I should be more active in class to benefit my knowledge and grades. However, I believe this grade is a reasonable…

    Why I Deserve A Grade

    Why I deserve an A If asked, “what grade do you deserve in this class thus far,” I would respond with “an A”. In a class where writing, a subjective skill to grade, is a primary source of your grade, I believe grades should be given based off of improvements in their skill rather than their final ability. Due to this Ideology I believe I would best deserve an A this quarter because I have shown major improvements in my writing. First off, I believe a grade should be based off of improvements…
