Getting A New Bed

When was the time you got a new bed after you had your crib? This is a story of what I got for Hanukkah in 2017.

When I was born I had a crib. Then I got a twin bed when I was around 3 years old and I’ve had it since I was 10. Now my present for Hanukkah is getting a new bed! I am so happy and excited! I finally get a bigger bed and more room to sleep. I am getting a double/full. I’ve been planning to get a bed since the beginning of December. It is my only present for Hanukkah because 1. It is a lot of money to get a new frame, new sheets, a new mattress, new pillows, new pillowcases, a new duvet cover, a new duvet blanket and a new headboard and 2. It is a big present. It is a lot of work to do this because you have to make sure everything is measured and the right size and also it matches your room. You don’t want to get a bed that is purple and you room is green. The color of my room is light pink. I got a bed that is gray with some white. It is already the end of December and I got my headboard, sheets, duvet cover frame and my pillows. My mattress is coming this weekend and I can’t wait to set it up and sleep in it! Everyday I think about how comfortable my new bed is going to be. When I sleep in my new bed for the first time at night, in the morning I might not be able to get up because it will be so comfortable! I can’t wait to sleep in it!!!

Hanukkah Party

What do you do for the Holidays with your family’s? In this blog post I will tell you what I do For the holidays.

I celebrate Hanukah. Every year for Hanukah my family and I have a huge party in the dinning area in my aunt’s building in New York City. Everybody from the building comes as well as some neighbors that live in other buildings right next to their’s and some friends and family. We have a tradition that we do every year. When we come we have to bring a present and put it in the middle of the table. Then each person takes a present and when they open it that is their present. We call it grab-bag. For my sister and I, everybody brings one present for us. When it’s time, we light the candles and say the blessing. We also have some food that people bring and we eat all together. I love this Hanukkah tradition. I think it’s so fun because everybody get’s together and I see my family. I get to see my cousin that I normally can’t see because one of them is in collage and when he has brake we never have time to see each other. Also I get many presents. Getting the presents is one of my favorite things that we do. Every present represents me. Last year I got sparkly clothes, lip gloss and more things that I love. This year we are doing this Hanukkah tradition and coming altogether. I am so excited to have so much fun!

My Writing Journey

My class and I have been writing so much so far this year in school such as essays, non – fiction, fiction and much more. I think I have grown as a writer. I love writing non – fiction and I think that I have gotten so much better writing in fifth grade than in 4th and 3rd grade. I like writing other types of writing but I have a talent on one type which is non – fiction. I could keep writing and writing non – fiction for a long time because I think I am good at it. Sometimes I try different types of writing. Essays are usually the hardest for me because there are many steps to write an essay and there are also many things you have to add to an essay to make it a good essay. It’s sometimes hard for me to think of examples to add but I finally come up with some good ones. My second favorite type of writing is writing reflections which is what I am doing now. I think that a reflection is a time when you get to reflect on what you are doing and how you do it. I think it is a time to reflect on you and what you have done. I like writing reflections because I can write whatever I want since it is about me only. I love writing and I think I am good at it and also I think that I have grown as a writer.
