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.
