We the People: These are your Rights By Adam Lambert

Here is a link to the video; These are your rights.

I think the most important right for a citizen to have are search warrants. The police should not be allowed inside without a search warrant because they have no reason to mess with other people’s stuff unless they are suspected of a crime and the police have a search warrant. The most important right for a student to have is religion. It doesn’t matter if they are colored; they should still get the same teaching and learn the same things. I think all citizens should get the same rights because it is unfair for other people if they are not allowed to do something, but other people are allowed. That is how things should be fair. Rights should be limited. You should not be allowed to use your guns that are supposed to be used to keep animals away for killing people. I think one right that we don’t have, but we should have is share. Poor people that are poor and can’t afford homes should get a nice place to live. We should be kind to everyone here. That is why they should get everything they need to live. 

 

Stronger By Janelle Monae

Here is the link to the video Stronger 

 

To me, this song means to stop discrimination and have peace. People want to be equal and not to be left out. People want to protest because they cannot be in the government. They want to be stronger and they can’t be, and they want to try new things and not be forced out. It makes me feel like I should let everybody be equal and not be stopped. We need to make a change.

The artist might be saying that you are getting stronger. It helps you have more perseverance and bravery to stand up for your rights. Other questions I have are how brave was it for the person to stand up for the rights, and how did they stop discrimination? This is one of the videos that want to make me stand up for other people, too. The lyrics make me happy.

Thank you for reading this, and I will see you next time.

Personal Narrative and Reflection

This piece is a description text. I told a story from my life. I want to improve parts that are less descriptive and need more detail. I am most proud of the 2nd paragraph because it has a lot of details and it looks back into my life.

 

 

 

My Narrative Writing

The Walk Home 

 

I asked my mom to walk home alone. “ Please let me walk home alone,” I asked. She agreed, but only because our house was very close to the school. I thought it was amazing to go home unsupervised. It was my first time. 

 

Not too long ago, in Houston, Texas, I wasn’t able to walk home by myself because the school was too far, so my mom drove me to school. Now that I moved to New York, I was able to walk home by myself.

 

It was very refreshing. I thought to myself:” Yes!!!!  It is so exciting, even though my house is two blocks away!” It was my first time, and I was going to make the most out of it. 

 

While I was walking home, I had a big smile on my face. My backpack was over my shoulder, bouncing up and down. I was jumping and skipping instead of walking home. I played at the park for a little while. I noticed lots of things during my walk. For example, I saw birds, colorful trees, and rabbits jumping across the park.

 

My mom was happy when I came home. She was pretty worried I would get lost and not find my way home, but I did.

 

 

Big Nate Game On! By Lincoln Peirce

I am presently reading Big Nate Game On! This book is about Nate Wright, and he plays sports. In this book, he plays basketball, baseball, and soccer. Big Nate is very good at these sports and has some lucky plays and hits. For example, Nate is scared of cats. One time a cat made him climb a fence, and the batter from the other team hit it, and Nate caught it on the wall. Big Nate has lots of comedy and humor, and people who like funny things should definitely read the series.

Welcome to 5th Grade!

Welcome to 5th grade! I am excited to be in 5th grade although I am sad because I had to leave Houston, Texas. I have lived there for 3 years.  5th grade has been great so far. I like playing kickball during recess because it helps me exercise and relax. I am sure I will like 5th grade, and I hope you will too!
