Silent Saint

We wait for saint Nick.                                                                                                                                                                              With an empty tree.                                                                                                                                                                                He flies through the sky trying not to be seen.

He sneaks on roof tops.                                                                                                                                                                           He goes through chimneys with ease.                                                                                                                                                   Nick stares at the tree then smiles.                                                                                                                                                       The jolly saint reached into his bag and pulled out a small present.

Not a single gift under the tree.                                                                                                                                                             The saint slid the present under the tree.                                                                                                                                             He shouldered his bright red bag.

He flew up the chimney like a bullet.                                                                                                                                                   The saint would rocket the the sky at the speed of light.                                                                                                                  Nick smiled and waved and whispered.

Merry Christmas, to all a good night. And with that he took off without a word.


Technology is not always good when it comes to speech.

Phones and Technology can be used for good things such as Work, Medical Emergencies, and learning. But it is also bad. It can give you cancer if your on it to much, affect your learning, but most of all. People are always on them.
Here are some similarities between communicating in person and communicating with technology. Texting and talking are alike because you can express words threw both texting and talking alike. Like Hey it has been awhile sense I have seen you, I only have a few minutes so maybe you can text me?
Here are some differences between communicating in person and communicating with technology, Talking in person and texting can be two different things. In person you can show emotion and in texting you cannot so if it is really important you do not want to text them, but if they are really far away you might just want to facetime them to call them. Another way they are different. Is cause if you are trying to tell a joke to someone and they don’t know what your actually thinking. They might take it the wrong way, like I texted my friend one day a joke and she took it the wrong way so the next day I had to explain it.
Like you will have to explain it was not in a bad way they just looked silly that day.

Reflection of Out Of My Mind-Stand Out

You can do things others can’t.

Don’t change who you are just to impress someone.

Accept who you are embrace yourself.

Don’t fight against your true self.


Be like a cat enjoy everything around you.

Or be like a dog.

Be brave and loyal to the friends who treat you for you.


Will you do it?

Or try to fake yourself?

YOUR choice.



You can do things others can’t.                                                             AshleyEich

This Is How I Thought The Medi-Talker Had An Impact On The Plot In “Out Of My Mind”

To start with. She can’t walk she can’t talk. “I can’t walk. I can’t talk. I can’t feed myself.” without a doubt she is trying to explain how she can’t do anything on her own. She wants to tell her family how smart she is, and how much she really loves her family. “Anyway I almost fell out of my chair. I scrunched my face and tried to point to the radio.”On the other hand she is getting tired of fake grades and she can’t even tell them, but what if she had a computer made for her she could. “It would have big keys, so my thumbs could push the right buttons!” she can’t talk to her family because she is disabled. Despite that I think the Medi-Talker is going to have a big impact on the plot because she can finally talk! Sorta. Seeing she can’t really physically talk on her own. So the Medi-Talker is doing it for her.

Sharon Drapers Writing

There are many parts of ‘’Out Of My mind” I like about Sharon Drapers writing. I liked how she made me laugh in   the sentence “So I did. I strained. I reached. I tried so hard I farted!’’. ‘’Mrs. Violet Valenica Lives next door to us. Violets are purple, and Valenica oranges are well orange! And purple oranges are just weird, so is she’’ I love how she draws you in. ‘’ I`m surrounded by Thousands of words. Maybe millions!”. Sharon Draper has many things I like.

What I Think Of Child Labor

I think child labor is wrong,I mean you taking a child’s well childhood and making them work right threw it.With only very little pay even tho its put lives in DANGER!Then on top of the you could be losing limbs.When  it was tam for the kids to start working they would lock the children inside the building.With no source of ventilation what so ever,so the children had to sit and work without even a bit of cool air for refreshment.Anyway thats what I thought of child labor hope you agree.
