I think that the best thing that we did all year would have to be the vignettes, we read House On Mango St.  The book was about reality and real life situations that took place in her life. There were a lot of reflections in my life. These vignettes are snapshots of a time or place. I thought that they were a lot of fun, we got to use our creativity to express our emotions and self in a variety of different ways.

writing and reading

I think that this year I have learned a lot more then last year, even though I have missed a lot of school because of thing out of school, I have learned how to be more independent Within myself. I have really improved this year toward the end of the year. I also still need to work toward reading a full book and sticking with it.


This year I have had my ups and downs, I started out with a bad year and having a lot of hard time with getting to school and getting work down and handed in on time. Now at the end of the year I have learned to be Independent with myself and get done what has needed to get work done. 

I learned that the world is not going to stop just because I feel that I don't want to do something at that time. That I have to face reality and move on with life. English class has helped me a lot by writing out how I had been feeling at the time, I had gone through a lot this year and getting to write things on paper, an also by acting in class with class mates.

I think that I have improved in my reading since last year. I have accomplished a lot within this year, that might seem funny seeing how I have missed a lot of school, but that has taught me with my grades and teachers and family that i needed to grow up and face reality.

I really enjoyed Writing vignettes, they have lets me tell and expressing my felling and emotions, We also wrote about some fun and silly things such as what kind of flower are you, I thought that this was the funnest thing all year of my 10th grade year. I hope that next year we write something like that in my 3rd year of high school.
