My School Day


In the Morning

Every morning at six o’clock, my mother wakes me and my brother up. “It’s time to get ready for school,” she says.

And so we get up and get dressed. We eat breakfast and brush our teeth. Then we take the bus to school.


At School

At school, I go to my homeroom. My homeroom teacher is Mrs. Graham.

In class we do different activities.

First we read different books by ourselves. When we finish, the teacher tests us by asking questions.

Later, we draw pictures, paint, or do other artwork. Often, we sing songs.


At 10 o’clock we have recess. The children play in the playground.

After that, we work on math: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percents, decimals.

Math is easy, usually. But sometimes it’s hard.



At 11:30 am, we go to the cafeteria for lunch. Today it’s chicken with broccoli, lettuce salad and raisins.



After lunch we have another recess.

Back in class, we write essays or stories.

Later in the afternoon, we have Spanish lessons (but I already know Spanish since my parents come from El Salvador).

Finally we go to the PC lab and work on computers.

The School Bell

At 2:30 pm, school ends for the day. We take the bus home.

When I grow up, I want to be a doctor.
