This summer I decided to re-do my room for first grade. I use to have a Lightening Mcqueen poster, from the movie Cars. I liked cars and trains when I was around two or three years old and just kept that with me in my room. I also had a road rug that I use to drive my cars on. When I was four years old, I liked Spiderman. So I also had a Spiderman poster in my room and a bunch of superhero stickers all over my walls. I decided to take them all down because I have new interests now.
So let me tell you about what I like now that I am six years old:
Maps & Geography:
I like learning about America and the world. So I put up a big world map and a State map. My grandparents from Orange County travel a lot so I am excited for them to show me all the places they have gone. I am also going to keep track of all the places I visit in America and around the world. So far, I have been to these cities in the United States: New York, Washington D.C., Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Hawaii and Mexico.
Beach, Pool & Palm Trees:
I also like beaches and pools and palm trees so I bought a hand-painted oil painting with my dad. Whenever I can’t sleep, my mom tells me to think of a happy place and I think of the beaches and palm trees in Hawaii (I also think of Disneyland sometimes). Now I can look at my painting before I go to sleep!
I changed my rug to an abstract rug because I learned in Kindergarten that I liked abstract designs. I also like to draw abstract designs like diamonds, stars, swirly circles, zig-zag lines, and twirly lines.
Sports & Books:
I have a Warriors poster because I like basketball and a mini-hoop above my door. I put the superhero stickers on my door because I still like some of them like Captain America. When you open the door there is a 49ers towel that I hung up that says “Who’s got it better than us? Nobody!” I also love books so I found a secret space for my books behind my door.
I put my keyboard in my room and it is now in front of my World Map. I like having it in my room so my sister doesn’t bother me when I play. My piano teacher will be teaching me the Happy song by Pharrell Willams. I really want to play it for my talent show in April next year.
