Grade 5




To me a home is a place where I am with my family always,
where we can trust each other and we always love each other, even when we don’t get along.

Home is where we have a roof over our heads and warmth,
a place where we have pets to cheer us up when we are sad.

Home is a place where we are always safe from bad things like robbers and we are always comfortable with couches and beds.

Home is a place where we don’t have to worry about water coming through our roofs, where we have things that we enjoy like a tv and board games like Monopoly and Clue.

We have electricity to power things like my x box and lights so we don’t live in complete darkness. We have clean water and we don’t need to worry about not having clean water.

Home is a place where I can trust my neighbours and they trust me and we are kind to each other. We ask, “How are you?” when we see each other and we always look out for each other.

I think everyone should have a home so they can be safe and are able to have fun. That is what home is to me.
