My name is Ah Lee Ga and this is my first day of school. I was really nervous. Everyone stared at me, like I was some mystical beast. I went to sit down on a chair connected to a desk. The first day of school was like magic to me.
What does that word mean?
During the day, we played some games and everyone but me made friends. I felt lonely and sad. Suddenly, a girl name Myo came up to me and asked me if I wanted to be her friend. I was so excited because this is my first time having a friend to talk to.
you should come visit me sometimes.
yeah, i get lonely sometimes.
After lunch, we played outside. I was really astonished because it was my first time seeing so many kids playing and laughing happily. The best thing I liked was the swing. When I swing, I could feel the breeze. We also played Shark, which is a game where you are the "shark" on the slide and you try to pull someone down.
On that day, I learned some more English. I also got to have a desk of my own. I was really shocked because we don't have desks in Thailand. Also my teacher gave us prizes if we got a question right. My teacher was really nice and she taught us a lot of things through out the year.
At the end of the day I rode a bus with many kids and sat by my new friend. In the bus it was very noisy and bad. The kids in the bus throw things around and sometimes they make other kids cry. I just sat with my friend and we talk about stories and other things. We were the quiet ones on the bus.
On the next day, I met new people and learned some more English words. I also got another new friend! First grade was one of the the best years in my life. The first day of school was what made me really into school. It also gave me interest in drawings and other specials like soccer.
