School is Hard
Recently, I realized that school is not as easy as it looks. I figured out that we have loads of work. For example, some days we might do Gym, Science, Math, Novel Study, LA, Library and Music. Plus in each of the subjects, we learn new things, write and talk about them and practice the skills we have already been taught. Another thing that makes school even harder is that my teacher doesn’t expect us to just do lots of work, she expects us to do good work. Even though this makes it harder, its good because we will probably get a better education this way. The last thing I realized that makes school harder is that I have to work hard to get a good mark. Now that I’m in grade four, I also am more responsible for my marks. I have to make choices about the mark I would like to get. Writing about this has made me realize school is harder than I thought.
