Grade 6 students were asked to write a short piece of writing in 15 minutes about something that changed their life.
THE THING THAT CHANGED MY LIFE.
When I was in my mother’s stomach, everything was black and I could not move or speak. It was boring and I started to feel lonely.
But one day I was so angry and I started kicking the stuff around me. Suddenly, I saw light and I started to cry! I was so glad! I felt how somebody pulled me out, and there I was. Out in the world! I wondered what exciting things were going to happen next!
