Student writing sample:
Mr. Parsons, Jordan and Amir went after school to get the bus. They were late because they were at choir. They hurried to catch the bus. Oh, no! said Amir. We missed the bus. When Mr. Parsons yelled to the bus driver, the bus was too loud. So the bus driver didn’t hear them calling. The little girl cried because she was sad that she missed the bus.
