Q. I understand you are interested in swimming. Tell me more about that.
A. I like swimming because I can go from one end of my pool to the other. My favorite way to swim is going backwards. On our pool wall we have lion heads that shoot out water. They are awesome! They will push you if you are on a floatie. I also like soccer. I’m good at being a goalie.
Q. What are some other things you are good at?
A. I am good at building cars out of the big building blocks. I don’t ride the cars; I push other people on the cars, and I can go really fast. If I go fast enough, someone will go “Whoooosh!”
Q. What do you like best about JGS?
A. The indoor playground. Outdoors is too sweaty but indoors, you can cool down. I also like writing class. I like to write in my journal. I like the journal topics Ms. Holly has us write. My favorite was when she had us write about what we did over the weekend. I wrote about seeing the lighthouse in San Francisco.
