My cousin told me, “Ask your mom if we can play in the rain and in the mud.” I went and asked my mom and she said yes but not with that clothes, so I changed my clothes and my mom looked for old clothes for my cousins.

Their beds are made of buffalo skin and are not like ours. Advanced High Speaker (Grade 6):  Advanced High Speaker (Grade 6) Tell what you have learned about dinosaurs. Most male dinosaurs mostly ate other dinosaurs to feed the female dinosaurs. I learned that unlike other animals, their babies didn’t have to learn how to walk. Most flying dinosaurs got their food in the water. They ate only fish. They dived down into the water and then went back up. Most female dinosaurs picked some leaves to keep them warm over the night. Like most animals they got on top of their eggs so the eggs can stay warm and hatch faster. They had to hatch fast because other animals will eat them. That is why most female dinosaurs stayed most of their time on top of their eggs. Dinosaurs lived good until the humans came and started killing them. Now scientist only find skeletons.... Advanced High Speaker, Continued:  Advanced High Speaker, Continued Tell me about something that was difficult for you. Well, I have plenty of problems to get up in the morning really early…Then when I go to school I have reading for my first period, but reading is the only subject I don’t get. I don’t get it because of the coding and going back and finding the answers. It takes a long time to read the whole story three times. The only thing I scored low on the test last year was on the reading. I got a 75 because I read it one time and I got an answer but I read it two more times and I get two more different answers. I couldn’t decide what answer to pick. That happened in almost all the stories. But I’m learning more about reading and now I am getting high scores. I hope I get a better grade than what I got last year. Advanced High Speaker, Continued:  Advanced High Speaker, Continued Tell me what you think of the school rules. Well, at our school we have a lot of rules. Most rules are not fair. For example, people run to the lunch line because it gets full really fast. Some people come out of the restroom with their shirts tucked out, and if a teacher sees you, you have to do jump squads. Well, sometimes students are uncomfortable having their shirts tucked in. Also, you have to watch yourself because if you get 16 tallies you won’t go on a field trip. If you get that much tallies, you can get a detention. If you get a referral, you don’t get to go on the field trip for the nine weeks. If you get into I.S.S., you have to sit in a room and just do work. Most people like to get that because they don’t want to go to class and do homework. Some people think it is fun but it’s not.
