So with this information in mind , these are some of the books that have influenced my character and therefore my literature journey . My favorite memories either include an animal a friend or me upside down in my bed ( my favorite reading spot ) with a good book . Reading was always a safe place away from boredom and annoying siblings . One of the books I remember the most was a broad purple heavy book called ‘ Bible Stories for Kids’ I remember how at first I only read it because it was the only book in my little “library” that I had not read ; A story that stands out among others is the story of Jesus walking on water ; I can distinctly remember the first time I read this story , I was in an airplane on my way to Reynosa , Tamaulipas to visit my family. Since i had started reading the book a few weeks ago I couldn 't stop reading .
When I was eight-year-olds, I was always told to read a book by my teachers and peers and I absolutely loathed it. One day I was handed an assignment, we were set off to check out a book from the library to read during reading time, which during this time I dreaded. After what seemed like hours, I decided on a Junie B. Jones book that caught my eye. After a brief reading session of one hour, when I finished the small chapter book, at once I decided to check out another one of the books in the series which lead to another one and so on. On average I devote about twenty hours of my time a week reading books.
Being an outsider is something that I’ve faced for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I was the first kid to learn to read, and then that was the only way I ever spent my time. If there was even a free moment in class, I’d pick up a book. People didn’t always understand what I was talking about when it came to books, but one friend did. Her mother and father both worked at publishing companies, and she was never without a book nearby, just like me.
Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing. I learned how to read and write at my elementary school named Saint La Salle.
One of my all-time favorite books when I was a child was Junie B. Jones. I read every book that had her name in the title. Reading was my great escape; it was like I would get lost in the books. I would spend hours reading, and at times, I felt like I was the characters in the book. Reading exposed me to many different situations and outcomes, and it also broadened my vocabulary.
As a childhood I had everything Winnie The Pooh. I had a Winnie blanket, sheets, and pillows. Before I was born when my parents were agreeing to Winnie for my nursery they were looking for Winnie The Pooh blinds and couldn't find them. So my dad got Winnie The Pooh fabric and made my blinds. And that's saying a lot considering I've never seen my dad sew anything.
To me, it seemed like an art to write in that flowing script. Many times my hands to ache at practicing to write the cursive letters and sentences and also I would have trouble writing some letters such as the “b”, “f”, and “z”. My mother would help me practice those letters by guiding my hand across the page. Eventually, I learned to write in cursive and I was elated. I started using it in school and would write more neatly than I could in normal print.
Procastination is becoming a bigger issue in the education system. To staying up till midnight or till the next day catching up on homework or studying for quizzez, exams, finals! Malcolm X faced the obstacles of trying to learn how to read. He had a lot of time on his hands so he wanted to and decided to teach himself how to read. Although, Malcolm didn't have the ablity to read , he didnt allow the fact he never had the opportuinty to expand his vocalbury to .
It was a diverse and strict school with many rules I had follow so I knew I had to make a big adjustment. It was challenging for me to come from a school with nothing but freedom and those I’m used to being around on a daily basis to an environment where they teach and students there learn and actually had an interest to want to. I tried to adjust their but I just couldn’t and found myself not attending school once again. I was disappointed in myself that I would easily lack when it comes to getting my education. Just when I thought about really giving up a close friend informed me about Job Corps and exactly what it is they do with young adults who are trying to obtain their diploma or to just advance their education.
He was a very big part of my life, when I was younger my mom use to read me his books all the time. Some nights I would beg for her to read them for me. I remember my first book I tried reading was from Dr. Seuss. I thought it would be a good idea to write about one of my favorite others from my childhood. I learned about his family and his life, a lot of what I never even knew.
Self Assessment: Jacob Thomas As a writer, I have grown in many ways, First I took English Comp 150 last semester. This class taught me a lot about my life due to a book we read The Last Lecture. However, I did not like to read so I showed much resentment towards it. As the deadline approached I finally opened the book that would make me love to read again. In school there is many classes where I can express creativity just like Dr Seuss did in his imaginative books.
There was one book in particular that I loved to check out, and was another one of my favorites the book was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. I could say that in middle school was when I decided to focus more in reading and I also realized that reading was very important. I realized that reading gave me life and helped me escape from any kind of problem I was having. I remember having several hard times and I remember grabbing a book and reading until falling asleep. Reading has always made me feel better.
Their evaluation sheets are based on the CELDT test, and it evaluates reading, writing, speaking and listening, and the general score. The school tested all levels in the entire district, and the Aides spent weeks doing these test around the district. Monica said she is advantage related to the other aide in the district because she stays in the Strawberry Point School the entire time, and then she have chances to talk with the classroom teachers, and share and collect information about the ELL children. She can give them extra material for the ELL students and hear from the classroom teacher what she should emphasis her lessons for specific groups. For example, the kindergarten kids that I observed are in the classroom that I used to work.
Each member of the group would take turns reading. I enjoyed this part of the day to see what new adventures Touching Spirit Bear had in store for me. There never seemed to be a dull page in the entire book. My shyness to read in front of others seemed to disappear while reading this book. This was my favorite part of the day, and as I would find out later, would have a great effect on my
