2: Erasing your words Read others thoughts through stories Expressing language | Language arts

3: Sometimes I clean my glasses, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I do the dishes, sometimes I won't. Depend on my mood, I might even do all of my homework. It really just depends on how much I’m willing to do. I’m not the average smart Asian girl. And I ain't all Asian like you think I am. But I learned that people think that of me regardless Because I am yellow I’m not like all the Grace Kim’s you'll meet. My worth is not determined by my grades No matter what you think of me I will always be Grace J. Kim | Self Respect

4: WHERE I'M FROM | I am from ramen, from Dairy Queen and Christmas Eve I am from the garden in my backyard in Crandall. I am from the poinsettia, the grape vines who weave in and out of the bungalow they're surrounding. I am from Korean Pancakes and bad eyes, from Myeong Cheol and Kyung Mi and Jung Soon I am from the math wizards and talented artists. From Be strong! and Be kind! | Where I'm From

5: I am from the cross that is embedded into my mind but not into my body. I'm from Dallas, Texas, from fried rice and sugar cookies From my parents’ lost wedding rings, the plants in my grandma's house, and the teeth I punched out of my Dad's mouth when I was so young. I am from the scattered pictures that are on the walls of the house that I look at every now and then.

6: My Mother's Kitchen | In my mother's kitchen she cooks To the best of her abilities She looks through books That mentions an oven as a utility In my mother's kitchen she feeds The dog with dog food and water When the dog is done she proceeds To feed me her daughter In my mother's kitchen we eat The dead fried fish she has prepared for us We eat said meat While she looks at us self-conscious

7: In my mother's kitchen she talks To my aunt or, in her point of view, her sister They talk so uninterestingly you can hear the clock Going tick tock while they're over there chatting about tongue twisters In my mother's kitchen, she cleans Until the dishes are shining bright With a sponge that is bright green Smiling a smile that everything now is all right
