A Day in the Life of...

WALT:write a recount.

A day in the life of a a person with hearing difficulty.
My day started off like any other school day. I was annoyed because the lady in the supermarket was talking to me but I couldn't hear her. I slowly walked towards my class to be greeted by one of the girls in my class. "Hi how are you " she said to me well that's what I think she said. "Hi um I'm good".

Miss Grecian was teaching Spanish to the class, I couldn't hear her because I was a the back of the class icealate with my own thoughts. I couldn't hear her that well so I had to move to the front of the class but it was way to loud. I just had to stay there, with my ears hurting.
For lunch I had a yummy sandwich, I was sitting by myself like any other lunch time. A couple of older kids came up to me with a nasty look on there faces. They started calling me names like most other people. I started crying so so they teased me more, I got up and run away to the girls bathroom.

After lunch we had assembly. I hate assembly because we sit at the very back of the hall. I can never hear what the are saying up on stage. They are handing out pieces of paper. I was feeling like I was in my own little world. Everyone turned around and were staring at me ever some of the teachers, they stared for a bit more, than started laughing. I run out of the hall with red eyes and tears running down my cheeks, I'm alone I'm my world everyday. I feel like I am under water all the time.

As I finally came out of my hiding place, I was feeling a bit happier. I made my way to the class. There was a new kid sitting at the back of the class alone like me. Miss Borris was surprised to see me back so soon I was so confused when she introduced me to the girl. She signed "hello" so I signed back and asked what her name was she answered Amy. Amy and I are best friends now and I am never alone.

My next learning step is to use more descriptive words in my writing.

What was your favourite dance and which era does it come from??

Guess what Miss O's favourite dance is?
