When I started to grow, my little sister was born. Our bedroom was filled with toys. Then, I started Kindergarten. I learned a lot. My teacher was very nice and taught me how to read. Next, I went to first grade. First grade is a little harder, but I am still learning a lot. My best friend is Sam. She’s really funny. We like to play tag at recess. I like my teacher this year because she reads us stories. My favorite subject is reading. I read lots of books. My favorite one is called “Diary of a Spider.” My favorite color is purple and my favorite thing to do is sing. My cat is named Sprinkles. I live with my mom and sister. We go on walks together around the neighborhood. After school I always eat a snack. When I grow up, I want to be a nurse just like my mom. </li></ul>
