    Do you have good integrity or not? 

    The reading workshop wants to know do you have good integrity or do you not!Tell me right here or comment on the reading workshop !

    Here is my response Integrity does matter to me because I do not want people to look at me and say don’t hang with her because she talks about people,or she steals things.No I want people to say that I am a good person and we should hang out with her.

    Kevin’s Integrity compares to mine because he doesn’t want to hurt anyone feelings because he knew he was going to die so he just had to get them not to worry about and while you live have fun!

    My integrity guides how I live because when you get older say you want a job at a bank but, you don’t have good integrity, so you know for a fact you probably won’t get a job at that bank.

    So if you want to read more responses then go to the reading workshop just click this link right now!

    3.  Create the problem or conflict?The problem in the story is the girls can’t find their way back home because they opened a door and can’t find their way back home.  What minor problems will build tension leading to the climax?They coem across a villain and don’t know how to get out. How will the main character react when faced with the main problem/conflict?She will try to get her group to come up with a plan.
    4. What crisis will occur at the last-minute which will grab the reader and give the main character a last chance to solve the problem?They all work together when they find they have secret powers .  Plan for a fingernail biting moment.When they come across a trog and the trog says he will try to kill one of the girls.

    What to Do About a Bully! 

    Yesterday I was asked if I was in the same position as Russell what would I do?Also what would you do about a bully?Here is my answers:
    If I was in the same position of Russell I would ask the bully why he was doing this to me.If that didn’t work I would tell a grown up.I would also try to be his friend  and not interfere with the bully.I would try to stay by a friend or grown-up.

    What I can do about a bully is tell a grown up or I would have my mom,dad,or one of my brothers pick me up from school and tell her what was happening.Either that or I would ask the bully to “please leave me alone”.I would also try to go a different way and make sure that when I go that way that the bully is not watching me and not paying attention.

    If you want to read more go to the reading workshop right now and check out everyone’s comments.

    Do you control your destiny? 

    A few day ago I was asked if I control my destiny.Well my answer is yes and no because right now I am a little kid and I don’t.But as I get older I get responsible, and I do control my destiny.

    What I am doing to steer my life toward success is I try to get good grades in school,I work hard and I try to have a good life.So that when I get older I can be a veterinarian or whatever I do in my life to steer it to success!

    What is your potential? 

    This is another post for the reading workshop!So what is your potential?Here’s my post:

    I think I am not even close to being at the top of the meter, I also think I am not even half way.My score would not be even half way.My best is trying as hard as I can and my mom always told me try your best and thats all you can do.I always try my best but I don’t put enough potential in it.

    Even though Brock thought he couldn’t go to the 50 yd. line he made it to the 100 yd. line and he didn’t even know it!He was so strong and he had the faith that he could carry a 160 lbs man all the way across the football field(100 yd.).

    I think Mr.Mcguire’s right,nobody will be there to tell you, that you can make it, and you should just believe in yourself and try your hardest!I think every one in the sixth grade should try there hardest and make Laurelville school a top scorer!

    You can read more at the reading workshop!

    I can not believe how lucky I am to have a family like mine! My whole life is hanging with my family!I am going to write a poem about my family:

    We may not be perfect

    But in our own ways

    We may have made mistakes

    But we fix them

    We may fight

    But thats alright

    We sometimes fear on things

    But we help each other through it

    Thats my family and I would not change a thing!
