Dear a few months from now Eli,

Don’t listen to anything I say in this letter. It was an assignment at the end of 6th grade. It’s not like I will forget anything over the summer. Hopefully you will have forgot what an I Can is. Don’t bring your knife to school, they don’t like it. Now stop reading.

I suppose I have to say some thing here. I have no advice for 7th grade considering I have never been to 7th grade. Bla bla bla. YOU CAN NOT FLY FROM ANY HIGHT. (no matter what they say) ect. ect. I thought I told you to STOP. Now quit it. No more. All done. There is no more for you. Nothing.

This paragraph does not exist. If you read any farther YOU WILL DIE…..

Die… die… die… die… die…  die…  die…

 

Sincerely,

Eli Williams

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Eli Williams and I an in 6th grade. This year I took Humanities (ELA, History), P.E., Science and Math. The electives I took where Travel Club, Drama Club and Yearbook. I participated in the Philly/D.C., Humane society and Apple store tips. I also went to three plays (Noises off, 12th night and Bring it on.)

My favorite writing piece this year was my purpose of religion writing piece. My best style of  writing is 1st person fiction. The expository pieces that I am most proud of reading are At Home: A short history of private life and*  *A short history of nearly everything, both by Bill Bryson.

I am most proud of my work in science because I feel like I know a lot and I am able to get my work done. I made the most improvement in math class because I wasn’t able to stay on top of the work in the beginning but now I am able to. I am most proud of my war project because I put a lot of work into it. My classes helped me investigate the world, communicate ideas, recognize perspectives and take action by having certain outcomes count for those global competencies.    

I learned the most from the Travel Club trip to DC and Philly this year. The memories I will have this year are traveling to DC/Philly and performing in a play. The DC/Philly trip helped my investigate the world. Literally.  

Sincerely,

Eli Williams

    The conch shell is a symbol of order and law. It was first used to call every one together and with out it they might not have been abel to unite properly and could of all died out. It represents order because is used to call meetings and that represent law. When Jack broke off he said the conch did not count on his side off the island, the one that represented no law and disorder. Therefor the conch represents order and law.
