Writing Sample

W.A.L.T explain to your reader what being a good friend means

Do you know what a good friend is ? Then I am here to tell you how to be a good friend or how to improve on being a good friend.

A good friend is a person that doesn't judge the way you look, your religion or even the colour of your skin. They make you feel welcoming and loved. A world without friends wouldn’t be nice. So that’s why you should take the opportunity to have friends. Friends can be the one to cheer you up or the shoulder you cry on or even share your problems with. Friend should be loyalty and always be there for you.

They may be some time where your friend is feeling sad or disappointed that’s when your side of a good friend is shown. Most people find it hard to be a good friend and that’s true. It hard to be a good friend because sometime your most reliable friend has done something bad you should always have time to think and then tell them what you think. Sometimes both of you feel sad because you disagreed on something. That’s when you have to be the older person and apologize first to make things right.  Never think that you’re always the reason why both of you argue because that puts you down to make you think that you’re not a good friend. In life there are always going to be mistakes and thats why not one friendship in this world is perfect.

Most of the people I know pretend to be someone they are not just to make their friends happy or just to fit in with the crowd. That’s not being a good friend to yourself. I would say the first friendship you should have is a friendship with yourself. Why should you have other friends when you can’t even make friends with yourself. That’s the one friendship you will ALWAYS have. If you want or improve on being a good friend is first to be friends with yourself.

Remember a world without friends is no use so take the opportunity to have friends!

Capitals - what are they and when do you use them in writing?

WALT: Write an explanation telling people what capital letters are and when you use them in writing.

Do you know what a capital letter is ? A capital letter is  well known as a upper case letter for it’s size. Capital letters comes in different shapes as well. Sometimes when you write a capital letter it’s not the same shape as the lower case letter (the smaller letters) for example the capital Q is not the same shape as the smaller q.  When writing a capital letter it always has to reach the top of the line.  

Capital letters are used for different kind of things like names of geographical places. Geographical places are places like  countries around the world and the cities in the country. It can also be use for places like McDonald's and fish and chips stores.   

Dates. Us human beings use capitals for dates like months and days of the week. We use them because it doesn't look tidy when writing it .

In titles are capital letters. Titles are things like movies, games, shops and more. All of them have capitals. For example when buying Black ops 2 on the cover it has a capital at the beginning of the title. If you go to the shop the logo of the store has a capital.   

We use Capitals after a full stop to start a new sentence. For me it helps me to see where an new sentence it because I can’t really see the full stops. So it really helps me. It also marks where a new sentence begins. Some people forget but the way I remember to put a capital is to re read it.

Conclusion: We should always use capitals to make sense when writing or speaking.
