My first kiss

Being bullied in 7th grade Feeling pain at 2 am and certain today is the day
waking up every two hours
making breakfast at 6am
doctor appt. at 11
pain started again at 1 contractions started at 5am
called mom and dad and marsha
dropped off belle

didn't look ahead in the syllabus
realized I missed a deadline
desparate to make up the grade walking around grandma's
parents chatting around the table
I fell in
dad jumped in with all of his clothes on
Dad always said, "You have to fall 100 times before you really learne to ride a bike."
Decided to practice in the parking lot behind the school
Dad had to ride on Alli's bike and steer my bike at the same time.
The hill seemed so huge!
We went out of control and all fell off and over the handle bar. Step 2 in the writing Process:
"Dig for Details" Make a web of details around your potential topics to discover what you have the most vivid memories about. Writing Standard:
Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details, and well-structured event sequences. a. Engage and orient the reader by setting out a problem, situation, or observation, establishing one or multiple points of view, and introducing a narrator and/or characters; create a smooth progression of experiences or events. b. Use narrative techniques, such as dialogue, pacing, description, reflection, and multiple plot lines, to develop experiences, events, and or characters. c. Use a variety of techniques to sequence events so that they build on one another to create a coherent whole. d. Use precise words and phrases, telling details, and sensory language to convey a vivid picture of the experiences, events, setting, and/or characters. e. Provide a conclusion that follows from and reflects on what is experienced, observed, or resolved over the course of the narrative. Step 1 in the writing process: Brainstorm Think of all possible experiences that have shaped your life. How did you get your name?
Where have you lived? What were the houses like? the neighborhoods? town?
what is special and unique about you and your family?
What's your favorite hobby?
what is your favorite sport?
what was the best family vacation?
when was the first time you traveled alone?
Describe your favorite teacher.
What subject gives you the most headaches? Mrs. Oehler's sample brainstorm.
