Ugh, PSSAs are next week. I don’t like the PSSAs, but at least we get snacks!! I think I’m going to do good this year. At least, I hope I do!! 🙂 I’m pretty sure I’m going to do the best on language arts, because I’m REALLY good at it. I’ll be sure to bring a lot of water because staring at the PSSAs will give me a headache.
- What is he trying to teach in this poem?
- What does the rose symbolize?
“The Rose that Grew from Concrete” by Tupac Shakur
Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk without having feet
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
I think he was trying to teach that you can always prove people wrong when they say you can’t do something. I also think the rose symbolizes people that are determined to achieve their goals in life, even though other people try to put them down.
Who was your first best friend? How did they influence your life? Include a description of your friend, so that we can picture them in our mind. Use sensory language: see, taste, touch, smell, hear.
My first best friend was kayla, kayla is a really happy and always smiling which helps me stay happy. I met her in 5th grade i came late in the year and she was the first one that came up to and talk to me.
I think that she dose not like being eleven because It said in the story that she is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, and eleven and it also said that she would rather be 102 because she would have known what to say sense she is only 11 she is only 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,78,9,10, and eleven.
My most favorite person is my grandma. Some memories i have with her is cooking we used to cook alot and also we would just be lazy and watch TV and she is still alive but i Moved to PA from Florida so she lives in Florida. Some traits that i would like to have is cooking really good. She is such a incredible person because she is always their for me.
This is the quote “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” – Christopher Reeve
I think that the first trait is that they need to be a very nice because if you are not nice you are mean and that automatically makes you not a hero.The second trait is that you need to be very helpful because if you are not you cant be a hero because you wont help other people so if you are not kind you will be mean and people don’t like mean people and people like heros.
This quote is very meaningful to me it makes me in powerd.
My hero is my parents because my parents are always their for me they help me the bad and the good.
I think we should band weapons because a lot of people are getting hurt and even killed. If we band weapons people would not get hurt or possibly killed. a few weeks ago their was a really bad shooting at a concert in Las veges 58 people were killed and another 489 others were injured. If weapons wear band that would not happen.
