For this year there is one class in the literacy class that different from other and there is a reason behind. The literacy class that is different call the Liger Literacy Leadership team which we are trying ways to get people inspired in literature especially for Liger students. This class will also teach us how to a leader in class and taking control in a group more. So for this round, we create an event which nearly whole school attended and it calls the poetry slam. The event allowed to share their poem that has written and it about a book that we have reads which call The Rent Collector. This book has inspired me and my other classmate a lot and we also show a documentary about the place that book token. I also wrote a poem which is about Sang Ly life, the character in the book.
Title: The River of Victory
Drag my head and my lifeless body back home
Find your purpose in life
If I falter it is only because I don’t want to make a mistake
Quit crying now Sang Ly
Patience is the best way for every trouble
Do you say this because not all our stories end happily
Book is the love for you
Knowledge is like the mountain that it been waiting for you
Trash truck is the Magic and Life
Trash is just like dream and hope
Trash is a way to survive
Struggle tear is coming out everyday
Our home is so dirty and dangerous
But I still need to stay to survive and pay the rent.
This is Sang Ly live………
For our literacy class, we suppose to take a real story of our holiday and turn it into a short story. For the short story we can make it fiction or nonfiction but for mind, I make it non-fiction.
During Khmer New Year, there is an event call Songkran which a lot of people attended that event and this event last for three days. The last night of the event I visited the event after coming back from Koh Kong and it was very fun. When I arrived I just run into the group of people and start dancing with my relative and when I dance people all way stared at my face because I don’t live there also how I look it so different from them. When I dance there is a man at the back of me whom I know and put his hand on my shoulder which I felt weird so I start moving forward but he still follows me which I think he is trying to steal my neckless which my mom just give me. Then I start moving to the place that my relative dance but he still follows and put the hand on my shoulder which the hand moving up more and more. After that, I just run out of the group to find my parent so he wouldn’t follow me anymore then after a wild I saw his face again which scared me. Then we decided to leave the event then we got to the car which I still think about him in my head and everywhere I go I can’t stop thinking about him. For the last few days of the holiday, I don’t really go out of the house because I don’t want to meet him again.
This story gets inspiration from the day that I visit the Songkran also from people telling me that should be careful when you go to the big event because you might lose stuff there. Also, this a true story which is happening everywhere when there is a big event happening
So the last class for the essential is Literacy which is from 11 am to 12 pm. Also in this class, we are studying with a new teacher. We have a lot of new subjects based on writing. We have done many projects and one of them is Narrative Essay which we write our personal story and for me, I write about my future. This class teaches me a lot how to be a better writer and also to reflect back to our past.
