Amazing Alex! I was blown away by your opening lines, and found myself riveted to your words from the start. Each paragraph contained a wealth of memories that I, as the reader, was thrust into. Your vivid descriptions made your images easy to imagine. Thanks for sharing this!

Impressive haiku portfolio Alex. Your pieces were elegant, and fun to read. Each reflection made the haiku more interesting. The photos were also a wonderful touch. My favorite haiku was the piece about the robin awakening. I loved your brevity, and the image you created. Thanks for posting this!
Knowing you, Spencer, and your taste, I’ll admit that I didn’t expect a list like this. Each description made me hungrier and hungrier, and by the time I reached chocolate chip cookie dough, I had to get my hands on some ice cream! Thanks for sharing this! I hope you post some more food reviews soon.

I love the title of this post, and it definitely isn’t false advertising! This haiku is “lovely,” as you say, and your reflection makes the reading experience more meaningful. Thanks for posting this!

Thanks for posting this Jerry. Like JJ, anime has never caught my eye, but all your descriptions of your favorite shows make me want to try them out. Kuroko’s Basketball sounds really interesting, especially because I like basketball, and it will definitely make my list of things to watch.

Great work Braeden! I love how you described your special connection to your first bat. Your details were personal, and strong because I could tell it was written from your heart. Thanks for sharing this.

Great work Braeden! Your essay speaks to the importance of friends in a personal way, by relating to your friend Max. Max sounds like he was an awesome friend, and I hope you can see him again soon.

Awesome job Braeden! Your essay communicates the importance of family in a way everyone can relate to, especially because you include a life experience of yours, not a made up situation. Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks for sharing this Braeden! You did an awesome job of reflecting on perseverance, and your ability to tie the theme into your life experiences make the essay more meaningful. You are totally right, hard time do end, especially with the help of perseverance.

Wow JJ! Your opening scene was stunning, and you need to be complimented for creating such a vivid image. As for the rest of the essay: it’s awesome! You analyzed the themes wisely, and it is obvious that you were thoroughly reading this book. Thanks for sharing this!

David, your thoughtful reflection on “The Call of the Wild,” and your experience reading it show how deeply and thoroughly you unpacked this novel. I’m glad you were able to learn a valuable lesson from the book, because it serves as a reward for your hard work reading for deeper meaning. Thanks for sharing this!
Woah! This poem is awesome David! The rhythm, the word choice, the rhymes . . . Man! They are all simply fantastic! After each line I found myself eager to see what was next. Every stanza would contain a unique phrase, that fit into the scene, and the entire poem perfectly! There is so much more to say about this poem, but I don’t have the words to describe how great it is. Thanks for sharing this!

Thanks for sharing your essay Lyle. Your analysis of the story’s theme stood out to me as wise and thorough, and your quotes backed up your writing. I’m glad you were able to take an English assignment, and use it as a way to grow and learn in the real-world.

Lyle, thanks for posting your haiku portfolio! I liked how each haiku related to nature in a way that could feel familiar to everyone. Your ability to do this makes your pieces more meaningful and interesting to read. I enjoyed reading your reflections as well. It is always great to hear about the piece from the writer.

Thanks for sharing this JP! I’m glad you enjoyed the book, even though you didn’t anticipate being thrilled about it. You did a good job of explaining the themes of the book, and it is obvious that you read the novel thoroughly and thoughtfully. Thanks for sharing this!
It sounds like it won’t be easy for you to break out of this habit. In my mind, the first step in the process of stopping or fixing something is actually acknowledging that there is something to stop or change, which you have been able to do. School assigns homework as work for home, so maybe if you kept this in mind, you’d be able to mange your workload without rushing to get it done. Good luck!
Nice work JJ! I think you did a wonderful job of taking an everyday, normal activity like fishing, and using the experience to communicate a larger message. Thanks for sharing this!

David, this is the best advice I never knew I needed! I liked how you added humor to each of your steps, but also made it serious and provided sound advice. I’ll be sure to refer to this if I ever have to design a flag!
