7: At school on Wednesday I was wearing my favorite outfit. It was a soft blue and white shirt. My soft gray pants were comfortable. My diamond earrings that are made of flowers were beautiful. I was also wearing flat black shoes with white and gray lines. I was wearing a white bracelet with little pink dogs and I had a blue and white bow in my hair. I was not wearing socks that day. Finally, that’s what I wore in Miss Taigen’s and Ms. Draper’s class. By Jackie
8: Yesterday, I wore a comfortable outfit to school. I was wearing a brown and green camouflage hat because it was hat day. I had a greenish shirt that had short sleeves because it was easy to move in for running. I wore jean shorts so I could kick hard. I wore black, light shoes so I could run faster. I wore black laces because it matched my black and gray shoes. Also, I wore gray socks because they matched my black and gray shoes. I also forgot I had string on my hat because it makes it tight so the wind won’t blow my hat off. I wore a long sleeved hoodie, it was orange and gray. So, that was what I wore last Thursday. By Jose O.
