The Way I See It – Chapter 14

Day before School Starts

The day before school starts, sixth graders get to go to the school to visit and meet some eighth grade mentors.

This is a good idea so we can get to know a little about the school before we start.

My friends say they are all so nervous about being in sixth grade.

I am just relieved that summer is almost over.

My mentor was nice.

We played games.

We had competitions.

I didn’t get too stressed out, although I sometimes feel really bad when I don’t win at a game I’m playing.

It got a little too loud some times, but I just covered my ears.

I’m much better than I was about loud noises and crowds.

The best part of the day was when I got to meet my new social skills teacher: Mr. Roy.

He was very nice and told me that he liked video games.

He told that he likes to play chess.

I like to play chess!

That is so interesting that someone I just met likes to do something I like to do.

I can’t wait to start school on Monday.

It will be good to be learning math that I don’t know again.

  1. The day before school starts is such a stressful/exciting day. Finding comfort in old habits is so important. What a miracle/discovery to find common ground in a first meeting. Knowing this may make other “firsts” easier.

  2. Sometimes it’s that one person you know you can connect to that makes all the difference in the year…plus not having to learn what you already know.
