Tech Paragraph

My Tech Paragraph:

 In my first writing piece I would put myself on the the edge of developing and maybe starting securing. I would put myself there because on that piece I wouldn't want to put on the Internet and wouldn't really want everybody to see, because I don't think I did my best work and I don't like the outcome of it. On my second piece I made a big jump and submitted  it to the young writers project website and also showed it to a lot of people. In conclusion I put myself on expanding because I use my technology for great learning things (except when I was playing with Siri in Mrs. Khun’s class).

Good Tech Pieces:
My nose was only smelling smoke, my eyes were watering and and my stomach had that nasty puking feeling. The mist was hovering over the water, the old rusty car just barely poking up over the lily pads and swaddling grass. The ruckus of the nuclear power plant just coming out of the fog. Lying there in the middle of the swap was a half submerged oil barrel. I wondered why people would do such a thing? What had happened to our pretty earth?




























































































GUM paragraph

My GUM paragraph:
      I choose these writings because I think the really showed my progress. For example in my first piece I didn't use apostrophes is some spots but, I do remember on that assignment I was rushed because I didn't know when it was due. Then on my second piece I didn't have many if any grammar mistakes. Also,on my sixth grade piece I used a word that didn't exist that now I wouldn't even think about using. In all not all of my work has perfected grammar and that's why I put myself at the securing mark.

My GUM pieces

This piece has bad GUM:
Jewl is pretty cool
shes got a pool,
Shes a fool that drools
she's scary as a bunch of ghouls.                  
She sadly sank her schooner,
but she has a dog named cooner.
When Wendy went wako.
She moved to the town Lacko.
When Jewl got there,
she met a bear.
There were no bears back in Barre.
When Jewl saw the bear her faced turned red as a cherry.
This piece has good GUM:
      The first key event that happened in the Monkey's Paw, is Mr. White's old friend from the army named Sergeant Major Morris shows up the their house. Sergeant Major Morris gives Mr. White at monkey's paw that grants three men there three wishes. This is a very important event in the story because the whole story is based around this paw. Another event that changed the story is the White family decided to make a wish even though Sergeant Major Morris said there would be bad consequences. Mr. White chooses to wish for 200 pounds for his family, the only bad thing that happens is a few weeks later his son dies, Mr. and Mrs. White still haven't got their money yet. Then that night a messenger comes and tells their son had died and gave them 200 pounds. The first wish changed the story because if the wish hadn't came true or they hadn't wish then their son wouldn't have died. The story would have to be rewritten because the rest of the book is about them trying to get him back. The last event that happened was Mr. And Mrs. White thought they had a great idea and wished their son back but, there was a problem, he came back the same way we died plus he had been underground form two weeks. This might be one of the biggest events because the White's have to wish their son dead again because he comes knocking on their door in many pieces and then they have no wishes left. As I said these three events changed the story for good.
