"Test Prep Action Plan"

My goal for test prep is two do my best do all the strategies that Ms.Johns had taught us like RAFT, Listening and etc. Also my goal is two pass and get at least a 3. What i am going to do to meet these goals are to study hard and stay after school if i need help from Ms.Johns and i am going to do a lot of reading at home. On test day i will read the story careful and the questions that they ask about the story and take my time and understand the story i will not go through the story and just put any answer for it like some kids do. Question that might be on the test is questions like `` who is telling the story?" or like ``what does (whatever word) mean? and etc. If any question i don`t understand is hard for me i will go back to the story and read it again.

"To My Parents: What I've Learned so far in ELA."

Dear, Mommy

My biggest accomplishment in E.L.A this year so far is my published writing pieces. I really learned a lot about the compare and contrast unit with the presidents. In this unit we did research online about the candidates. I also really liked the unit we are doing now which is ``Killing a Mockingbird". In this unit we are reading a book as a class and doing a page about it online. The pass couple of months has not been a good start for me but i know i can and i will do my best to go to high school and come to school more often and keep up my good work cause i know i am a good student i just got to be in school more and catch up. Therefore, my biggest goal of the rest of the year is to accomplish more in school and COME TO SCHOOL!
Reading and writing is important to me in the future because in any job i get i need to know all of that stuff to get a good job.

The book i read is called Random Family this book was so good this was one of my favorites. This book i really could connect the world to because in this book there are things that go on in life with women. The women don`t have help from their kids father or the women has problems with her baby`s daddy girlfriend. In this book all of that stuff goes on and the young mother has 3 children and she moves from here mothers house to her friends house and back to her mothers cause her friends boyfriend didn`t want her to stay their. Her older child stays with her grandmother and the young mother who`s name is Jessica stays with her two twins.
I love this book alot because it says a lot about young women who have children and how they struggle in life.
