  • As I ran up to the stage to receive my award, I didn’t realize that my shoe lace was untied. I took a few steps, tripped over my shoe lace, and fell flat on my back. The crowd waited in silence to see if I was okay. They erupted in applause, when I stood up and walked to the stage to get my award. For a moment I was embarrassed, but I guess I showed courage by getting up and walking to the stage. I made sure that I held my head up high as I accepted my award.

  • When you are reading a passage and you come across a word that you do not know, you should use context clues to help you define the word. Context clues help you figure out the definitions of unfamiliar words. Become a detective and search for the words that will help you define the unfamiliar word. Sometimes the definition is right there in the sentence. You should never skip over a word you do not know. Good readers take the time to understand what they are reading!
