Most people have someone they admire. It might be a parent, a teacher, or another adult who is special to them. Write a composition that tells who this special person is in your life. Tell why you admire this person.

A young girl spent an hour packing her backpack.  She used her checklist to be sure that she had all the materials she needed before going to bed.  In the morning she awoke ready for her day and wondered if everyone else was as excited as she was.  When her alarm rang at 6:30 a.m., she hopped out of bed, put on her clothes and bolted down the stairs with her backpack.

Write a story about what you think the girl was about to experience.  Be sure to include a beginning, middle and end that has details about the character, problem and solution.  Read aloud your work, use the spell check, edit and revise prior to submitting your post.  Have fun!
