Word Art

The word art assignments were where we were assigned a word and had to draw a picture and somehow incorporate the word. I feel that I did well on this because I can easily incorporate things into drawings.

Wanted Posters

The wanted posters were similar to the word art, in the way that we had to draw a picture. We would pick a vocab word and draw a picture of something/someone and fill in the blanks as to why they're wanted. I feel that I did a good job on these because I have a law enforcement themed mind and can do something like this easily.

Vocab Charts

The vocab charts were pretty self explanatory in the way that we filled in the chart. We filled in some blanks, wrote some sentences and put in a picture. Along with that, I made sure to theme my sentences. I think that I did a good job on these because This was a straightforward assignment and easy.

Thanksgiving Narrative

We had to write a few paragraphs on what we did over the break for this wonderful, food coma inducing holiday. As with all of the narratives, I feel that I did well on this because I can recall details and things of that nature easily.

Christmas Narrative

We had to do the same as the Thanksgiving narrative, but Christmas themed. As with all of the narratives, I feel that I did well on this because I can recall details and things of that nature easily. (Have you noticed that we do a lot of themeing?)

Halloween Narrative

We had to write a paragraph or two on what we did (or didn't do) on Halloween night. As with all of the narratives, I feel that I did well on this because I can recall details and things of that nature easily.(We do a LOT of narratives)

End of year Essay

We had to write another narrative, but about the school years we've had here at CCMS. As with all of the narratives, I feel that I did well on this because I can recall details and things of that nature easily.

Spring Break Narrative

We had to write a few paragraphs on what we did over spring break.
