You Will Make It

Middle school can be scary, hard, and intimidating. However, it can be a good year if you do what you’re supposed to do. Here are two pieces of advice for incoming 6th graders, always have friends to help you through and always try to keep your grades up.

In middle school you will find out who your true friends are and who is going to stick by you through anything. You always need to know who your best friends are because you will have secrets that will get told, so always remember who you’re telling any of your secrets to. Be careful to always make the right decisions even if your best friend isn’t, because someone will find out and there will be consequences. So always have friends by your side because 6th grade will be a blast with them.

You may be scared to come to middle school because of your grades and you’re scared to fail. Always be careful to make the right decisions about your grades as well. Your friends may be going to the baseball fields but you know you haven’t studied for that big test tomorrow. You may want to go to the fields with your friends, but you need to stay home and study for that test. How to keep your grades up is to always do your homework. Because you will get in trouble if not, so always be prepared and ready for each day.

So do what you’re supposed to do and always have a good attitude. Always have friends to help you through and always maintain good grades. Are you ready for 6th grade?

Communicating in Person and with Technology

Communication in person is fast and easy, however you can’t talk to someone that’s far away. Though they bear some minor similarities, the differences between communicating in person and communicating through technology are clear.

Here are some similarities between communicating in person and communicating through technology. Through both you can get bullied, whether it be cyberbullying or physical. In person you could get beat up and online you could get mean text messages or emails. You have to be careful online because you could get publicly embarrassed on social media as well as in person. In person and through technology you can use advanced vocabulary. In person you could blow someone away with a fancy word and you could also send a text using the same word. An example of advanced vocabulary is you could be in an interview and say a big word or you could also be typing an email and use a big word. Those were some similarities between communicating through technology and communicating in person.

Here are some differences between communicating in person and communicating through technology. The location is very important when it comes to communicating. You have to be right next to the person to talk but if you are communicating through technology you can be all the way across the world. My friend moved away to Oklahoma and we can’t communicate in person but we can communicate through technology. Also Wi-Fi plays a big part in communication, you can’t communicate through technology without Wi-Fi but you don’t need Wi-Fi if you are communicating in person. Those were some differences about communicating in person and communicating through technology.

Although there are minor similarities about communicating in person and communicating through technology the differences are very clear. In my opinion I would rather communicate through technology because you can communicate when someone isn’t right next to you.

Literary Response

These are some things of how I think the book “Out of my Mind” is realistic fiction. One way is because Melody’s condition Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy is a permanent movement disorder. “She has Cerebral Palsy, Mrs.Brooks.” Also, the book has realistic settings. Like Mrs. V’s house, Melody’s house, and the elementary school Melody goes to. “Mom made sure Penny was dressed in pretty little outfits everyday, even though she was just going next door to Mrs.V’s house. Another thing is the dialogue seems realistic, how the characters talk and communicate with each other. “I pointed to “need” on my board, then to “read”. Need/read. Need/read. I know you can read a lot of words, Melody, Mrs.V said. Those were some things of how I think the book “Out of my Mind” is realistic fiction.
