Seventh Grade Reflection

When I first arrived in August, I expected seventh grade to be very difficult.i imagined lots of homework, essays and projects… And rude teachers that yell at you even if you sneeze. I soon realized that seventh grade is a breeze. So far the year has gone by with a moderate amount of homework, projects and essays. Our teaches to fun, hands on activities and are super nice!
By October my life was flying by and I was making lots of friends in my classes. If i didn’t have some of the classes I have, I would not have met some of my best friends.
After a while, I figured out that it helps to be relaxed and not stressed before a test, otherwise you will focus on the future and getting a bad grade instead of the present and trying your best. Also I noted that if you always do your work, you and your teacher won’t have any problems.
During seventh grade I learned lots of tricks for studying…. Make a song out of it, summarize it, quizlet, ect… I also learned how to make friends faster. For one, don’t be rude to anyone… And be kind and outgoing. I also learned about Texas history thanks to my Texas history class.
As the year comes to a close, I am sad to leave all the teachers I have come to admire, and if I had to do this all over again I would defiantly study more often.
My advice to next years seventh graders would be to respect your teachers. Don’t interrupt them and be respectful in class or else you will have a long, long year.

Animal Farm

This year my class is reading the novel Animal Farm. In the story, animals on a farm represent political leaders of The Solviet Union.
Old Major, the leader, has a strange dream that he announces to the entire farm. It is of an uprising of the animals. He explains to the others that humans are the enemy and that no animal should ever befriend one. Old major later dies, before his dream becomes reality.
The other animals are mistreated and malnourished. Eventually they can bear it no longer, they break in and steal food. Mr.Jones, the farm owner, attempts to stop them and by doing so he only angers them more. The animals start a revolution. For a long while, they succeeded in keeping Mr.Jones off of the farm while that maintain it, but he come back to try and take over the farm again.
Thats it for now, I’ll update as soon as I’m finished.
