What happened when you entered the classroom ?
What did you learn on this day and how did you feel in the end?
I am Sam. The chirping of the bluebirds woke me from my restful sleep. As I slowly woke, I got a funny feeling in my stomach. Breakfast was normal and I began to relax. As we approached the school, I could feel my heart beating. My hands were starting to sweat. I hated this!
I entered Mrs. Owens' class. She was smiling, and saying hello to all her students as she did every morning. "Hi Sam," she said as I walked in. "Hi," I said and quickly sat in my seat. We said the pledge, and then took our spelling test. I looked at the clock. The time was near. I hope I am not first! Mrs. Owens said it was time to begin our special day. Mrs.Owens announced, "Sam, you'll be first." I got up slowly, looking at the ground as I walked to the front of the room. I looked up, and everyone was staring at me. Mrs.Owens must have known I was nervous because she came by me, and put her hand on my back.
I learnt that we should be confident and only when we are confident we will be able to think correctly and also speak well. I talked in front of the whole class, and it was fun. It wasn't scary after all. The class clapped as I finished and Mrs. Owens was smiling. I was proud of myself.
