Grade 4


Meaning of Home

We all have that one special person, and place that we always go to. Personally, My go to place, and person is My Mom, and My home. I’m here to teach you about home, and what it means to me.

Home should be the place that you feel safest at, whether it be with your mom, dad or siblings. Home provides you with warmth, shelter, food, water, and cleanliness. Sometimes, you may not like the home you’re living in, but it still feeds a purpose in your needs. Home is always safe, whether you think is it or not! What I’m trying to say is that Home should always make you feel comfortable, and satisfied. You are a very lucky person if you own a home, because some kids can’t enjoy what you can, even though both you and me wish they could.

Now I want to talk to you a little bit about foundations, and how much effort people actually submit in order to build your house, to function like everybody else’s.

The effort that workers put in is huge, and it takes a lot of time. If anything, you should be in love with your home, because of the effort that other people put in just for you and your family to survive. You may think that it’s a waste of time, but really, people spend thousands of dollars just on you and your family! Can you imagine how much that would equal up throughout the years? Somewhere in the millions would be my best bet. Anyways, the foundations of the house are built to house heavy objects. Have you ever wondered what’s under hardwood floors? Well, it’s cement! With almost every housing foundations, there is concrete, or cement underneath a house. Personally, I think that it’s only for structure, and heating in the floors, but I could be wrong.

The final thing I would like to talk about is how I feel about my home. My home to me is one of the most precious things that I have! Therefore, I’m extremely stoked for future housing platforms. I’m also very thankful for the sacrifices that other people made to ensure that I’m safe, and comfortable with the home, and the place, no matter what time it is.
