My day seems a lot less boring, hard, tiring and its more easy. I would rather live my life than one of theirs.
I agree with you because that is how my day is
Its Different because i have never been to the tomb. I have been punished though
I have not been to the tomb either Adam
My life is much better than one of the slaves life's. I think that if I was a slave, I would be tring to escape. Although... I still do do chores and work at home so maybe that is a comparison. It is probably a lot easier for me than a slave ( Why do they even have slavery???)
who are you
Who are you?
I agree slaves are not fair, people working for other people for no pay. Getting paid, Now that's a whole different story.
I agree but they are not slaves they just work for him until their debt is paid off and also who are you
i feel that my daily mr outline is different than any of these kids. They are brutely beaten or starved if they don't do something right and here at school and at home for anything
My life is not much the same but sometimes when I was little I would get a spankin and it is diferent because I dont get whipped and slapped and I don't have to go to the tomb.
That is true I used to get punishment but not like the puujnish ment that they would get
I liked the part where you told you got spankin before, it kinda relates because you got spanked because you were naughty (I'm assuming) and they got whipped and slapped because they were naughty to.
I agree but I've never been spanked
They don't get a lot of breakfast in the morning I do, I can use the bathroom when I want. I can have a drink of water when I want. They can't really do that. I go to school and after I can do what I want (within the law). They don't go to school.
I agree with you Ana I can do those things too.
I don't make carpets like the children do in the story, but we both eat on a daily basis and I sometimes cross stitch. I go to school on the week days but they don't. When they are being bad they get sent to the tomb, but I get sent to my room so when we get in trouble we both get sent to something when were being bad.
I tottaly agree I think that it isn't fair that they have to make carpets.
I've cross stitched before and I really enjoyed it. It sometimes looks like the patterns on rugs
Well making them for fun is different for working for someone else's debt.
I always think my life is hard but when I compare my life to theirs it is awesome I would really rather live the live in the life I do!!! And my life is is not that bad!!!:)
That is nice that you think your life is better then theirs
I think they have a much harder life than we do and they should have a good time as a kid and no be in pane and pay for parents mustakes
I agree, Usually I complain when I have to do chores and such but when I think about what their dealing with, I am happy with what I have.
well in my life i do not get all the things i want so i have to work for them
Usualy when I wake up I have a big breakfast unlike them who barely get breakfast. Next I will get ready and go to school. They will just work and work.
And Instead of taking a break or stopping at a certan point They just keep going until it isnight time
My day is no where as broodal as theres and there for i would ceep my life as it is. Luke
One comparison I have is I do chores. But I think that my life is still A LOT harder than a slaves, I wonder if we still had slavery, than would it be life a maid, or would the slave be treated differently? The only real difference is maids get paid,Why don't slaves get paid?
Some times I get punished or grounded but I have never got starved. Or have to make carpets.
Karim she makes carpets: One day Me and my friends had a bake sale and we made potholders for an accessory and me plus 2 other people were making the potholders and the person who thought of the idea was pushing us and making us work faster than normal so i quit
I like how you took making rugs and turned to making potholders and selling them
And its different because they weren't my master and I could quit
My life is bettere than a slave's life. Being forced to work forever. Getting thrown in a tomb with no water or food. My life I get to eat good food, play games, go to school with my friends, and my life is all around safer.
Do you think slaves would be treated differently today?
More money, less hours and better treatment
i agree i would not want my life to be like theres
I get up eat breakfast, go to school, and then do some activity, eat dinner and go to bed on weekdays. They get up eat breakfast, make carpets eat dinner and go to bed everyday. that's it
Compare and contrast a typical day in your life to the daily routine of a child in the story.
my life is much better than the slaves I go to school and I have a learning opurtunety and then they have to go and cut there hand for peat sake
Me: Work on math, gets summer break, no tomb, live with my parents, can not be sold, eat food when we feel like it, sleeps in a bed,uses bathroom when we feel like it, when I get in trouble I get a time out or I'm grounded.
Child slave: Work on carpet making, works non-stop, have a tomb, live with masters, can be sold, eat food when master lets us, sleeps on ground, only uses bathroom in the morning, when we get in trouble we get whipped or sent to the tomb.
In the story Iqbal, the kids are punished for the slightest mistake.
In my life, people say it's okay to make mistakes- you learn from them.
In the book, the children are punished by being sent to the tomb.
At my house, we are punished by having to do the dishes for a week, getting grounded, or just a lecture.
A typical Wedsenday for me
I get up, get dressed, eat breakfast, brush hair, brush teeth, go to school for 8 hours, come home watch tv, hang with my friends, eat dinner, go to dance, come home go to bed.
A typical Day if I were working at the carpet factory
Wake up early, ajust my chain quick, for the whole morning I weave on my loom, eat lunch, I weave for the rest of the afternoon, have dinner, go to bed
My life is different because I am more active and can actually move. The slave kid can't they are chained.
my day go to school learn new things come home do homework then go play with friends come home take a shower then go to bed.
they get treated horribly they get little food cant go do fun things with friends get chained get whipped.
My regular day is way different
I think that my life is the same because I do not get a lot of rights But they are tarted woros then me and they life's are hared then me
