By: Dea Yu (Age 6)
1. Go to the Toronto Zoo.
Becuase I have been so busy with my ballet practice, music recital, and school work, I haven’t been to the Zoo for a long time. I want to go to the Zoo because I want to ride a camel.
2. Ride my scooter.
My scooter is purple with a girl sticker on it; I want to ride my scooter because I like things that go fast.
3. Have a sleepover with my friend.
I had one sleepover with my Girl Guides camp, but I never had a sleepover with my friend before. My Mom has arranged a sleepover with my friend Luna’s mom. My sister and I are going to Luna’s house, I think my daddy and mom are going to go to a fancy restaurant and to a movie on that day.
4. Finish my music theory book.
My piano teacher, Mrs. Zagala, said if I want to learn my next piano book, I have to be able to read music. So, this summer, I want to finish my theory book and move on to the next level.
5. Eat lots of home grown tomatoes.
Last year, we had a lot of cherry tomatoes, it was fun picking the red ones from the plant. This year, I want to do it again because my mom’s vegetable garden is growing really well.
6. Learn my times table.
Some of my classmates in school already knew the times table this year. I want to learn it over the summer so I won’t be left behind.
7. Learn to ride my bicycle without training wheels.
I can ride my bike with training wheels, but my Mom said it is time for me to learn how to ride without the training wheels; even Eric, my best friend’s little brother, knows how to ride without training wheels.
8. Go rock climbing at my mom’s new gym.
My mom is joining a really cool gym with all kinds of kids programs in it. Mom said I can go rock climbing. I am kind of scared, but mom says it is going to be safe.
9. Go to a Kid’s Zumba class.
My mom goes to her Zumba class all the time, and she says it is fun. Her new gym has a Kid’s Zumba class too, so when my mom is working out, I can go to my class.
10. Go to a cottage.
My friend Heather’s mom is looking for a cottage so our two families can go together. I went to a cottage before with Heather’s family, and it was fun. We had roasted marshmallows on the fire!
