    1. If Hagrid showed up at my house and told me I was a wizard I would scream and then go to Hogwarts as soon as possible. It’s not that I don’t like where I’m living but I would just love to learn how to cast spells and stuff. :)
    2. Yes, of course I would be scared. What if you ran into the wrong wall or the way into it was blocked on the other side! Come on who wouldn’t be scared?!
    3. Well, just like Harry said I would not want to be in Slytherin and I think it would put me in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw.
    4. I would probably be the seeker because I have an eye for small things.
    5. I would want to learn Expelliarmus so I could disarm anyboby or Expecto Patronum.
    6. My favorite class would be either Defense Against the Dark Arts or Care of Magical Creatures.
