My Letter To Alex

This piece of writing is for the week 9 challenge for Edublogs. I am writing about a 17 year old coder. He is blind but still manages to go to school during the day and has a coding job at night. Alex is a very incredible person and very capable. So here is the comment that I wrote to him!


Hi Alex, my name is Jenna. I live in the US just like you! I am a student at McDowell middle school. I am in a technology class and we are learning about block coding. That is the only coding I have even done before. Is it anything like the type coding that you do? Do you have to use a special type of computer considering the circumstances? Also is it hard to do all of your school work and go to your job everyday? School for me is already hard enough I couldn’t imagine going to school and having a job. It so cool that you can handle both. I know that might not have much time for anything else but other than coding do you have any other hobbies? That’s all I have to say for now but if you have time you should come and visit my class blog! http://mcdowellmedia.edublogs.org/


Family Celebrations

                        Family Celebrations December 25th is my favorite holiday. It’s Christmas! My favorite thing about Christmas is the decorations. My mom always tries to decorate early, but my dad tries to hold her back at least until after Thanksgiving. Usually the day after Thanksgiving is when she starts to set up her decorations. The only bad thing about the decorations is that they stay up for a long while after Christmas.

Something else that my family and I do for Christmas is make cookies. On December 21st we make the cookies. The whole family comes over to my house. We usually make to cookie dough and cut them out with cookie cutters. My grandma buys sprinkle and my mom buys the icing. After we finish decorating the cookies everyone takes some home with them.

This year we are doing something new. My whole family and I are going to see fireworks and Christmas carolers at a college near by. I have never seen carolers before and I can’t wait! Carolers are people that go around singing Christmas songs for people. Sometimes carolers can go to people’s house and sing.I think it would be really cool to see them.

On Christmas eve my mom get my sister and me matching pajamas and we go see Christmas lights. We used to go to this house that’s really bug. The family would decorate the house and have people pay to go through to see the light. My mom told me that they donate the money.This year they aren’t doing the lights so we are just going to go around town and see them.

The next day which is Christmas day my brother sister and I open the presents from my mom and dad. A little bit later when we all get ready we go to my aunts house. We all open gifts from each other then we all go home. My family and I have great traditions for Christmas.
