Fifth grade has been fun – most of the time.
I had to write a lot. That was not fun.
I had to read.
That was okay some of the time.
I liked reading about Steve Jobs.
I also liked making a book trailer in Seminar about Tuck Everlasting.
Sarah played Winnie.
I played Jesse.
We got to have free time in the hallway to think about our project.
I have a best friend named Micah.
But everyone in my class is a great friend.
They are all my friends because I don’t want anyone to feel left out.
I had a friend who was diagnosed with Tourette’s this year.
I tried to be a good friend to him.
I was in chorus because fifth grade could be in the chorus.
I had a solo at the end of the year.
I felt uncomfortable about that because I don’t want to be famous.
I didn’t want everyone to put too much attention on me.
But I practiced and my teacher was very nice.
I did a good job.
At the end of the year, we had a celebration.
I liked that.
We got to be outside instead of in school.
Many of my friends were recognized for nice things they did for others.
I didn’t get recognized for anything in fifth grade, but I was happy for my friends.
They did community service and that was helpful.
I will miss elementary school…
A little bit.
