Monday Mornings

I am learning to write an introduction that hooks in my audience.
Here are 3 versions. Which Monday Morning introduction do you like the best?

“AAARRRRGGGGHHHH” I shouted when my mum called out for me to make her morning coffee while I am usually still tired and in bed. Especially on Mondays.

This morning I didn't want to wake up because I was tired. My brother opened the door all I could hear was a squeak he came in and threw a soft toy at me. I got up and threw back and got back in bed.

When it comes to Monday mornings I don’t like it when you need to get your uniform,socks and shoes ready for school. It would be easier if school started at 12:30! So someone can get a good sleep-in.

Well that's just what I think.

ME Poem

I like seagulls
But I don’t like them scabbing my hot chips

I like diving in to the local swimming pool
But I don’t like getting told off

I like fizzy
But I don’t like going toilet

I like school
But I don’t like maths

I like sketching
But I don’t like mistakes

I like my bed
But I don’t like how it squeaks

I like zoo’s
But I don’t like the baboons

I like yogurt
But I don’t like eating it with no spoon

I like spooky stories
But I don’t like clowns

The first day

On Thursday 2nd of February I walked to school and the first person I saw was Isara. I said SSUUUPP to him and then we walked up to room 14's bay then Esrah and logan walked up to the bay and we started talking about our holidays. Brrrrrriiiggg went the bell and we walked inside. I said hello to Mrs Squires and then the class walked to the hall and we were divided into groups to be called to a class.
