Its all began with a mouse asking for a cookie which made the mouse want something new, afterward the mouse creates an endless stream of request that eventually will turn into a cycle. Which leads the reader thinking the cycle will go on all over again beginning with the mouse asking the boy for another cookie. The philosophical context is determinism because it is like life is already set for them with repeated steps for the near future.
In the Poem “Oranges” by Gary Soto the theme of the piece is, to sacrifice for others in the name of love is worth everything you have. the theme of the story, though, is improved upon by literary devices. The first literary device present in the poem is Simile. The simile helps compare the items in the story that the main character talks about or saw while in the Drugstore with his girl on the date. While going through the store he comes across candies that were “tiered like bleachers”( Soto, 26), there were so many choices and his girl picked out the chocolate on one of the shelves, although what she picked out was more expensive than he thought and couldn’t afford it.

Students watch two video shorts, one about the number one and one about the number two. They watch the videos on the smart board while sitting in their spots on the carpet. There is some giggling because the videos are intended to be a little silly. Something else they also did was to read the book Chick- Chicka 1-2-3. This is an entertaining book about the number zero who is trying to climb the apple tree, but finds it to be a difficult task to complete with the numbers 1-99 in front of him, and not to mention the bumblebees that cause chaos as well.

Bradbury uses this as a way to show the dad 's fear of the nursery in the growing darkness of the room. Another simile Ray Bradbury uses in The Veldt is when the children return from the Plastic Carnival. “Wendy and Peter were coming in the front door, cheeks like peppermint candy, I was like bright blue Agate marbles, a smell of ozone on their jumpers from their trip in the helicopter.” He uses this to develop the innocence of the children on the outside, to later show the darkness growing in the children. The Veldt also uses mood to set a feeling of deep darkness.
10- monkey see monkey do. What i mean by this is kids will do as their parents do. If a son sees his dad beating of his wife the son will grow up and do the same. Sometimes children will do certain stuff they see their parents doing and they don't even know it's wrong. They just do it because their parents do it.
In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Jem and Scouts changing perspective of Arthur ‘Boo’ Radley represents a coming of age moment because it demonstrates a breaking away from the childlike imagination that had previously explained all of their questions and superstitions about the Radley’s. A coming-of-age moment is the transition of thinking that occurs when someone learns empathy. At the start of the novel, in many situations, Scout and Jem demonstrate childish behavior and thinking when Jem is taunted into touching the side of the Radley home by Scout and Dill. The book reads, “Jem threw open the gate and sped to the side of the house, slapped it with his palm and ran back past us” (18). From this portion of the novel we can tell that Jem and Scout clearly regarded the Radley home and its occupants with novelty and even fear.

The day I worked for Children 's Valley Hospital they were throwing a Halloween celebration for the sick kids because they couldn 't go trick or treating. There we set up games for the kids, along with supervising them playing with playdough and getting candy. We also helped the kids go around and get stickers from games and “fishing”. Afterwards, I was pretty much in charge of packing up everything and getting it back into the van.

I choose to view the video clip, Maggie Simpson in “The longest Daycare”. There are some entertaining pieces in the clip one being in the beginning when they test Maggie’s intelligence with the equipment manufactured by Often Wrong Technologies and going through the security check in the beginning. However, the video reveals how society often views people’s intelligence without often knowing how smart that person maybe. Maggie shows her intelligence when she encounters her first case of bullying.

I recently had the opportunity to join a classroom at Horseshoe Trails Elementary school and observe a boy that will be referred to as Nick. Before the observation began I was able to speak with Nick’s teacher and obtain some background information about his development over the past year, his daily issues, as well as some family history.

In addition, he experiences issues with speaking clearly and concisely, due to a minor stutter.
