People could only imagine knowing Miss Soar on a personal level, yet here I was about to spend a full two weeks by her side in a classroom. Although I knew of Miss Soar, we never had a conversation, but that would soon change. Sitting at my study writing a shopping list my mother had asked for when I heard the doorbell ring followed by a brief conversation. It was Miss Soar! At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said.
I was adopted the summer before fourth grade. I went to a school that wasn 't as good as East Lansing they didn 't really care if we did our homework or not, so I never had to do it my mom didn 't check to see if I even had homework. After I was adopted I started going to Pinecrest. Right when I got to my class I could tell it was going to be harder than my previous school. My adoptive mom helped me get used to the environment of the new school.
“Just save all your homework until I get back.” He told me jokingly. He left two weeks after that conversation. It was easy at first, but as weeks and more weeks went by I was in agony. I couldn’t live without my older brother. He always send notes to my mom with little notes to me which I appreciated but it was no comparison to having him there to mess with me and bring me the type of joy you can only get from your sibling.
In the beginning, Leo is put in a special class because he’s “slower than the rest.” He had no friends and he saw no way to be happy. In paragraph number 5 in of Slower Than the Rest it says “Leo had been separated from the rest of his classmates and placed in a room with other children who were as slow he. Leo thought he’d never get over it. He saw no way to be happy but Charlie took care of Leo’s happiness”. Also in paragraph 5 it says”Leo was slow in reading, slow in numbers,slow in understanding nearly everything that passed before him in class.
A family of seven living in El Salvador barely eats since their father only earns six dollars a month. One of the children, Rocio, suffers from anemia, however, when Feed My Starving Children stepped in, her life changed. Now, she helps her mother fetch water and is happy because she can carry the jugs on her own. This is just one case of how Feed My Starving Children has influenced and changed lives. My charity I chose not only feeds those who are in need of nutrition, but they also give hope and happiness to the families and people they help.
A personal life experience is when my church goes to feed the homeless (every other saturday) my mom and I make food and take it along with us. It feels good to help people who are less fortunate. Finally, after reading the novel The Catcher in the Rye I have been able to relate to Holden in many ways. Just like Holden, I say what comes to my mind, I get anxious when things change and I have to deal with things I am not used too and I like being around kids. I am also a teen just like Holden who is trying to live in this world full of
I wasn’t able to recognize their names. Some kids I couldn’t memorize how to spell their names, but I definitely made a lot more friends. I’m only able to memorize Julie and Kyla ( from a different school). On Wednesday, one of my cabin mates had to move to another cabin because she had no partner. Her partner had left home because they was really homesick.
¨In this way (Harriet) worked, day after day, till late at night; then she went home to her little cabin, and make about fifty pies, a great quantity of gingerbread, and two casks of root beer¨(Doc D). This explains why it is the second greatest achievement because she didn´t work as long as she did as the first greatest achievement. Harriet Tubman's number one greatest achievement was being a caretaker from after the war until her death in 1913(48 years). The focus of Harriet's life was to help those in need(Doc E). This explains that though she didn't have the necessities for everything she still helped because that's how she was.
Other than Atticus ' teachings of compassion, Scout learns to be compassionate from her failures as well, through the more sensitive times of her childhood. On Scout 's first day of school, she explains to her teacher why Walter Cunningham, a boy in her class, does not have a lunch. Scout says, " '[The Cunninghams] never took anything off of anybody, they get along on what they have '" (Lee 26). One year, Atticus did a job for Mr. Cunningham and Scout asked Atticus how he could afford to pay him back. Atticus responded, " 'Not in money, but before the year 's out I 'll have been paid '" (Lee 27).
I was only attending half days to begin with due to my brain still healing and not handling stimuli very well. I was given a room where I could eat lunch with my friends. My friends were glad to see I made it back okay but I knew they could tell I was different. I was definitely more quiet and in a depressed sort of state. In the first week after returning I had a seizure at school.
