It’s been fun to read the first grade writing samples that Luke brainstorms and then writes during Writing Time at school. The teacher gives a topic and then they spend some time making a idea web and then writing. Spelling corrected so you could read it!
Topic – The Best Christmas: Germany Christmas
My favorite Christmas was my Christmas in Germany. First my mom and dad woke up and then woke up everybody. After mom and dad woke every body up, then dad opened the line. Everyone rant to see their stockings. I got almost everything I wanted. Then we ate breakfast. Mom made Christmas breakfast. I was so yummy! It was yummy like a big pile of ice cream! After we ate breakfast, we started to open presents. My favorite present was Woody of a Potato Head. I loved the Woody Potato head because every time it’s arm fell off. Then I laughed the hardest I could. After we opened presents, we had a good prayer “Heavenly Father, thank you for our dear blessings. Please bless that we will have a great day. Please bless that we will have a great day. Please bless that we will have some great holidays like this holiday. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.” My dad said a good prayer. I think Christmas is the best, only if it is at Germany.
Topic – The Best Part of the Playground: The Swings
The best part of the playground is the swings. I think it is the best because I swing high. When I go on the swings I pretend that I am flying like Superman. It is also my favorite part because I like jumping off of the swings. It makes me feel as high as space. In my opinion, the swings are definitely the greatest part of the playground.
Topic – My Favorite Animals: Turtles
I love turtles. Turtles are my favorite animal. There is a bunch of reasons why. First, they are the best because they are so slow. I like that they are slow because it would be fun to go easy on them if we play tag with them. Another reason why I like how they are slow is when they walk on the sand, it makes a big turtle trail. They look cool in their shell, and it is cool with their shell protecting themselves. It is ridiculous when the turtles are in their shell and they float in the water. Another good reason is that they can go on land and water. It is cool because if a scary animal chases a turtle from far away, it will go slow on land. Once they get on the water they start to go faster and faster. I think turtles are the best water animals in the whole wide world.
Topic – What is Winter
Winter is a bunch of pillows on the ground outside.
Winter is sledding on a giant hill.
Winter is the North pole.
Winter is making a snow angel.
Winter is freezing fingers.
Topic – My Hawaii Vacation: Kauai Hawaii
Me and my family went on a trip to Hawaii. One of my favorites was going to the Beach. It was fun because we made a lot of sand castles. Then we got in the water and then ran away from the waves. We played with sand toys too. I like the sand toy that you put sand in it and then it spins and lands on the sand. Another place I liked that was at Hawaii, was the swimming pool. The swimming pool is fun because there is a big hot tub and it was fun to swim in the deep end. At the pool we have water toys that are Hulk, Ironman, and Captain America. We went to restaurants. My favorite one is Bubba Burgers. My favorite food is a Burger. At Bubba Burgers me and my family liked to say ‘Aloha’ to the people. We also went snorkeling too. I like snorkeling because we get to see fish. The first day we went snorkeling I saw one fish but the next time I went I saw a lot of fish. Me and my family will go to Hawaii again because it is the best place ever.
Topic – If I could be any Storybook Character: Ash
If I could be any story book character, I would be Ash Ketchum from the Pokémon TV Series. I really want to be Ash because he’s in Pokémon and Pokémon is my favorite video game in the whole world. He is good at catching Pokémon. If I was Ash I would catch all my favorite Pokémon like Sither, Julteon, Blastoise, Charzard, Muck and a bunch of other Pokémon. Ash is going to be the greatest master of them all. I want to be the greatest master too. I think Ash Ketchum is the best story book character any one can pick.
