Today at school we went to a Peruvian restaurant as a field trip with our Spanish teacher. While we were there we learned and practiced speaking Spanish. We had to talk mostly in Spanish and answer some questions on a worksheet. The food was all very good. Some of the dishes we had were lomo saltado, pollo saltado, pescado and arroz. We also tried a drink called chicha morada. I didn’t really like it. I sat at a table with my mom, Samantha, and Rehma. We had so much fun and I hope my family and I go back there sometime.
In class we have been writing a LOT!! We are going to share our writing in a writing expedition next week. My writing has definitely changed changed this year. For each subject we have done I have learned so many new things. Because Ms. Boyer is such a great, unique teacher everything is different in writing. It is more creative and we have more freedom. In essay writing I have learned a new way to organize my writing (that I find easier.) This year we have also been able to free write more. I got to write I a fiction story, and I haven’t gotten to do that for a while! Overall writing has been so much fun this year, and I can’t wait to do more!
