Animal Farm

In English we read the book Animal Farm. I thought it was really good and very well written. It was easy to tell which animals were supposed to be who in the Russian Revolution. I thought the book got better as it went on. I’m glad we read it.

I hope we get to read more like this. I liked how once they over through jones they thought it was going to be all good, but they had a lot of problems they were facing. Once snowball was chased away that is where it took a major turn for the worse. Napoleon started lying and breaking the rules, but when he broke them he would change the rules so that he would technically still be following them. He still said men was the enemy, but he was trading supplies with them. My favorite part of the whole book was definitely the end. I thought it was so sad when they said you couldn’t tell the difference between pig and man. Even though it was sad I liked it.

I really liked the book, but I didn’t expect to. Anyone who has not read the book for class I recommend it!!

Black And White

In Lois Lowry’s book The Giver they do not see color. I can barely imagine a world without color. The photo used to be a beautiful sunset with bright snow. Now it’s all gray and colorless. This showed me the importance of color.

We need color in our life! It keeps everything interesting and more fun. Think about going to the beach and not seeing the bright sun or blue ocean, but seeing all gray or black and white. The photo shows dull mountains with a boring sky. I would much rather have the Orange/ yellow color of a sunset with white snow on the brown mountains. If color was taken away I would miss it all and I think everyone else would too.

We see color everywhere we go; whether it’s the green grass on your front yard or the red bricks on the school. I have and always will want color. I do not want to live in a world like Lowry’s book. A place in all black in white is not a place I want to live in.



I’m am so ready for summer to come. I am not sure how much longer I can wait for it. I’m ready for the warmer weather, no school, and everything else that comes along with summer. It is coming towards the end of school and I’m so excited!

One of my favorite parts about summer is how long it is! Most breaks are about 3 days-2 weeks, but summer is about 2.5 months. Not only does it give us time to do super fun stuff, but I think it helps me get ready for 8th grade in that long break. We can become more mature, so that will get us more prepared for our last year of westridge. I think all of us change all during those months. I look back at pictures of me and my friends from 6th grade and we look so young! We also dress very different now than we did before. I wonder what we will be like in 8th grade.

I am also so excited for summer, because I am going to Florida! I’m going for dance, so that makes it even better! I can’t wait for the warm beaches and fun dance competitions!!!! One thing we are going to do in Florida is Disney World! That might be what I am most excited about, because I have never been there before. I love roller coasters, so I am looking forward to riding a ton! My sister is coming and she wants to go to Harry Potter Land. I was never really a big fan of Harry Potter, but I’m sure it will be super fun!

Those are only some of the reasons summer is great! I have so many more. What do you like about summer?
