Class Fun

And a little bit about my classes. I really enjoy most of them, but I have one teacher who is a bit mean, he just needs to calm down and it wouldn't be so bad. I love my creative writing class, it is a lot of fun, but can be nerve-wrecking! We do random writings and then he calls on people to read their work out loud. I am always nervous at that point, but its good practice. I wrote a poem today, it had to be a school memory and we had about ten minutes to write it. I guess I could put it on here, give a sample of the class. Remember it was a quick write and poetry is not my best skill. But its a cute poem.

And this is the first draft!

Tag your it: Anger Flares, no fun and games
He lunges, he pushes: knocks me right to the cold hard ground
Crack, Pop, Snap- broken collarbone
Brother wasn’t playing games
Now pain, swelling, time for the emergency room
No salty tears from me, tag is not game for the weak.

School Tomorrow, 1st grade
Glue smell, writing practice, spelling bee, playing games, laughter fills the air
You see an arm in a sling, yet no complaints from me
Special treatment comes my way
Less writing, more candy, help from everyone
Center of attention in 1st grade.

Brother was mean, not playing a game
But now I’m the golden child
Sweet and sour candy, more help, extra attention, envy fills his heart
Arm in a sling, 1st grade, its not so bad!

Hehe, silly, but cute and yes I had to read this out-loud!  
I would give samples from my other classes, but no other does things like this. My other classes are mostly reading and the only one essay maybe two. Still I enjoy them, I like my schedule here.
