One of my hopes and dreams this year was to read 45 novels. I accomplished this goal and got past it by 30 by reading a lot on car trips, school breaks, during math and on weekends. This goal was also accomplished because I got to go to the library and pick out lots of books that interested me. If I liked the book I was reading and found it hard to put down I found more time to read.

Another one of my hopes and dreams was to expand my vocabulary. I have accomplished this by finding words I don’t know in my books and writing them down, then using them for Word Work. I also looked through the dictionary and using them for Word Work also. Then I would try to use those words more often. I found out that dictionaries have a lot of interesting words and other people can benefit from hearing other people use complicated words and learning what they mean. Also, complicated words make me feel powerful. That’s a good thing.

The last of my goals I’m going to talk about is that I wanted to be a better soccer player. This year I have really practiced hard and tried my best to get better. Last summer I would practice soccer every day in my backyard for 30 minutes and have practices four times a week. I think this had really helped me get better. This summer I plan to work extra hard to get better so I can have a good tryout and feel more confident.

I have just shared three of my hopes and dreams/ goals for this year and how I have accomplished them and/or are going to keep working on them. Hopefully I will accomplish some of my other goals too.
