IAHH Character Traits

In IAHH, there was many characters and they all had traits. One of the traits of Esther I would like for me to have was that she never let anyone tell her what to do. If I had that character trait, then I would not have to have people tell me what to do.

IAHH Theme

I think Incident at Hawk's Hill has many themes. One of the main themes of this book is to never stop believing in your thoughts. This theme works for this book because when Ben went missing, Esther and William did not give up on Ben being alive when they found him. In the book it states that William and Esther were looking for Ben for over a month and people were starting to believe he was dead. The McDonalds, however, did not give up believing their son was still alive.

Thoughts on Career

In class we had to write a career letter to someone who had a job that we want to be when we get older. I want to be a veterinarian and I wrote to the Oak Harbor Veterinary Hospital. I hope they write back to me so I can get some feedback on the job. I also hope they can tell me whats are some good and bad things about the job.

Career Letter: Veterinarian

Here is my career letter to the Oak Harbor Veterinary Hospital. If there is any grammar mistakes please comment so I can fix them, thanks!

Oak Harbor Middle School

Oak Harbor, OH

Oak Harbor Veterinary Hospital

OH, 43449

To Whom It May Concern,

My name is Macie Morris and I am a seventh grade student at Oak Harbor Middle School. When I start a career I would like to be a veterinarian. I am writing about this career because I don’t know much about being a veterinarian and it sounds interesting.

I have some questions about animals and what a veterinarian does. I hope you could answer most of them.

Here are some questions I would like to know the answer to:

  • What is your average day like being a veterinarian?

  • How many hours a day do you work?

  • How much schooling do you have to complete to become a vet?

  • Do you have your own patients or do you share with everyone?

  • How many animals on average do you treat a year?

  • Do you ever feel like you can make a difference by being a vet?

I hope I get to become a veterinarian. I love animals and helping them, but I also like to help people when they are sad when their pet gets hurt. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I hope you can get back to me!

Reflection of the Week

This week in Mr. Croy's class we have been reading Incident at Hawk's Hill. We finished chapter 4,5, and 6. I liked these chapters a lot. We also are starting to write career letters to places that have the same occupations as we want to have.

I really like the book and I hope it gets really interesting. Also, I hope I get my letter done and get written back.

Camp Michindoh Experience

I went to camp Michindoh last year and I had a great time. There were lots of fun activities to do there. Some of the activities there were archery, fishing, reptile and mammal houses, team building activities, play night, square dance, and many more. This trip to camp was the best part of the sixth grade.

Ideas on Career

In reading class, we are going to be writing a letter about what career we want to have when we get older. What I want to do is to be a veterinarian. They help people with their problems with their animals. I would write my letter to a veterinary hospital who treats animals.
