It was not until my senior year in high school that I wrote my first thesis paper. Since then as an adult, I have made a point to increase my reading and writing abilities. I do not exactly remember when during my childhood that reading started to become a struggle for me. However, I do remember as early as third grade having to leave my classroom to go to another building for tutoring in reading. As I progressed through the years, the school eventually separated the
She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”. When I finish reading the whole book I started doing my essay so I could turn it in the next day so she could grade it and give it back to me the following week. Monday came and we started class with a free write reflecting on how good we did on the essay. I wrote that I was confident that I was going to get a seventy on it. But when the teacher give it back to me I saw my grade and got surprises because it had a huge eighty nine percent with a circle around it and a smile face on top saying excellent job.
Therefore, they were reviewing second-grade curriculum when they returned." (EduGuide staff 1) I have first hand knowledge of the various calendars. When I was in elementary through high school I was on a traditional schedule. During that time any other type of schedule was unheard of. As a child I enjoyed the 3 months off during the summer, but did become bored as the summer dragged on.
The first chapter book I ever read was Child Of The Mountain by Marilyn Sue Shank. I grabbed it off a shelf in the public library, checked it out, and read. I finished it quickly and that made me start reading pretty much any children's chapter book I could get my hands on. All through elementary school, teachers started assigning books. I actually read all of them.
Although it may not seem like a big deal in hindsight, the first time I failed a test taught me one of the biggest lessons I ever learned: the value of knowing that you are always enough, no matter the situation. As a freshman in high school, I was used to getting good grades with little effort. So taking an AP class seemed like an easy opportunity to buff up my transcript. Little did I know that that would be one of the hardest classes I would take. On one of the first tests we took I scored a forty percent.
My goal wasn’t a complete success like I wished, I had a few minor problems. I still lack the motivation to read for my benefit which would cause a problem for me wanting to read more often. I would try to find something better to do then try to complete my reading goal which affected my first reading goal. This was my major problem during my reading goal, but still
12. I think people read to enjoy the story, and to increase their vocabulary and grammar skills. Another reason is that people read books as another type of entertainment, it is not “visual entertainment” which it improves your concentration and memory too. Some people read to reduce stress I think since it takes the person into a different place or
Through my high school I was able to observe in a third grade class for over 150 hours. My next experience comes with my work of Big Brother Big Sister. My most recent and relevant experience is my job I had in USD 253 as a substitute teacher. This job was perfect because I was able to gain experience from kindergarten through 12th grade. Before this job I as sure i wanted to teach kindergarten, and then I subbed and realized I needed those older kids who could tell me what they wanted and could engage in meaningful conversation.
I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals. I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
If you have a passion or love to do something it would be very hard to quit doing it. I started hating books in my teen years due to no longer having a passion for reading. However, I think it’s safe to say that everybody has some kind of passion or something that they love to do or maybe even something they want to learn how to do. With just one of those motives, reading a article or a book can be fun again, at least that’s how it worked out for me. By gaining a motive, having a passion, and figuring out what caused me to stop loving to read, made my love for reading become stronger than ever before.
Literacy Autobiography My earliest memories I have about reading are in my first grade classroom. Till this day I consider my 1st grade teacher the best teacher I ever had. She was an incredible lady that did all she could to make all her students successful. In first grade was when I was introduced to many enjoyable books at first I really didn’t like reading but, then the pictures and all the illustrations in general would grab my attention and I was anxious to finish the book. In my elementary years I remember having a reading class called S.F.A (Success for All).
