Language Arts:
  • List and explain three ways that you have improved your writing from the beginning of the year to now…..
I have improved my writing by so many ways. First off, I’m more descriptive. In fourth grade, or beginning of fifth grade, I was to lazy to include important details. For example colors. If I were to be describing a 80’s party, instead of saying “everyone was wearing green,” I would say “everyone is wearing neon green”. Or instead of saying “That shirt is so gray,” I would say “that shirt looks like steel.” Another way I improved is I am writing longer. In fourth grade, my narrative size would be about 3-5 pages tops. But now, I’ve written up to 13 pages! Right now at home, I’m writing a just for fun story that is only at chapter 3, and it already has 20 pages. Lastly, my writing is more on topic. I don’t get off topic much, so my writing could be called, more mature.
  • How has your reading improved this year? Explain.
My reading has improved by so much! My reading (grading wise) has not really changed. I was a Y at the beginning of the year, and now I’m a Z. But I think my reading has changed speed wise. I recently finished a novel in about 2-3 weeks. The novel was about 200-300 pages. Before, it would of taken me a month and a half to finish that. Obviously, I have improved tremendously.
  • How do you feel about your language arts experience overall this year?
I have always felt good about LA. Language Arts has always been in my top 3 favorite classes. I feel as I have excelled in most LA related subjects. My reading and writing have been fantastic. All major assignments in this class are always and B+ or higher. Typically, my overall percentage grade for LA is 99%. That’s amazing. In LA I feel confident about taking essays and such. I feel like this is definitely my 2nd best class.
  • What is your overall individual goal for this class?
If you want to know the honest truth, my overall individual goal for every class is organization. But for this class alone, mine would be to have 100% overall grade and always be eligible for theater seats (meaning no late or missing work). The theater seats goal has been achieved so far, but the overall grade hasn’t been achieved. Although twice I have been
at 99%.
