I really enjoyed reading your post. When I saw the cover photo I knew I had to read it. Hatchet was one of my of my favorite books that I have read. I thought you did a nice job with the summary and it was accurate to the book.
Josh, I really enjoyed reading your post. I am not quite sure if these are all addressed to the same person or not. But either way I enjoyed it. And if they are all to the same person, I liked how it is written that although you may not like certain qualities in an individual, there are some decent ones in them as well.
I really enjoyed reading your post. I agree with you, I sure do not want to have to be worrying about debt both during and after college. I feel as if thinking about college debt while in college would put a lot of stress on students as well distract them from their studies.
I found your post very interesting. I never would have thought that coffee would have such a positive benefit in sports. It seems as if it would have had a negative effect like other caffeinated beverages. You would think it would cause you to crash during the activity. I look forward to reading more about this topic.
You never really understand or appreciate the concept of time. We take it for granted and think that tomorrow is guaranteed. You never know when your time is going to run out, so don’t live in the past, learn to let go of things… Live for “now”.
I completely agree with you. I feel as if the police are starting to think of themselves as being above the law. And that the rules do not always apply to them. Everyone should have to abide by the same laws, no matter what their status is.
I thought your article was very interesting. And I completely agree with you. I feel as if parents that have a hard time controlling their habits with drug abuse, I think they will have an even harder time controlling and taking care of their kids.
I agree with your article. I do not believe that homework should be allowed. Homework just adds to the everyday stress of school. We should be able to go home and just be able to forget about school for a little while.
I am humored by your poem, “Bucky,” because there is a lot of rhyme
One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you “Lived on a farm in Kentucky”, because I liked the way you wrote it in line with the rest of the poem. I think this is funny because you were making clever jokes when you wrote it. You were also making it funny and witty.
Another part that I liked is where, “His favorite food was animals”. This stood out for me because it truly made me think of eating danimals as a little girl.
Your poem reminds me of something that I wrote once. One time I wrote a poem about my best friend. Ironically she also loved danimals and moved to Kentucky. She was very kind and sweet, as well as funny!
Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because you seem like a talented author with different ideas on how to make people laugh. As well as how to make people happy.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
