It all began when I was in first grade, but enjoyed reading in third grade. The main type of reading that I like to do is extensive reading during my free time. Reading The Lightning Thief in middle school encapsulated me as an avid reader. The authors of my favorite books are Rick Riordan, James Dashner, Justin Somper, Michael Scott, and Maggie Stiefvater. The types of books that I like to read are science fiction, mystery, action and adventure, and sometimes romance.
I don 't exactly remember the day learned to read, I guess learning to read came hand in hand with learning to write, slowly. I remember having to copy words off of a blackboard onto paper, then re-write those words over and over again until I not only memorized how to write them but also how to pronounce them. I remember every Friday was library day in elementary school and my friends and I would always fight to be first in line to get to the sports section because we never wanted to have to read anything "boring". I enjoy reading for pleasure but I dislike reading for information, most likely because I have a difficult time learning something just by reading it, I am more of a hands on learner. I enjoy the Killing series by Bill Orielly,
I remerber the first time I learned how to read. That was the hardest things I’ve ever learned. Because, when I was in kindergarden, I wasn’t a smart boy. I just wanted to play and play so, when my teacher asked me to read, I couldn’t do that because I never review my lesson at home. After that, my teacher told my mother to take me to a private class and also have to pay more to my school.
Every event big or small, helped shape my literacy skills that I’ve achieved through my years of education. I remember back in 2nd grade, where the school system required all kids to test on books they’ve completed in the current week. I struggled to finish these assignments due to the fact of my hatred for reading. The quizzes challenged my abilities as well as my patience. I found myself constantly cramming
I might have lost the school spelling bee but I’m still keen in spelling and learning new words everyday. But that specific day had left me traumatized. From that day forward I felt uncomfortable sharing my literature, expressing myself, participating in academic events or something as simple as talking. This predicament fortunately faded away gradually throughout my years of development especially in high school. Anytime I am placed in the same position I was on that day I get feelings of nostalgia of this episode that occurred in my life.
It was tough because, I did not want to let my parents down. So I had to go and there was a couple of my friends in that class as well. We had excitement to learn. We as a class learned all about the rules about the hunters saftey way and we were given a book to read learn and study from and it turns out. That book would.
He was an excellent student in math, and strive to do as well in writing and reading. His teacher Ms. Lucas tutored him in English. Even while he was recovering from surgery she still came to tutor him. His reading level that year rose two letters from a B to a D. She has since then passed away, and he wish he got to know her better. Devin accredits Ms. Lucas for him wanting to pursue a career in education, and become a teacher.
I love this series and I read and reread them whenever I have nothing else to do. Also, you would find my favorite book of all time, Matched by Ally Condie, which is a part of her Matched
The bible verse, "Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest," from the book of Matthew, chapter 11, verse 28, explains to go reach out to someone if you need help with anything. Moving on, I got into movies that were made from books and they seemed to help me picture the book better. For example, in my junior Honor's English class, we watched the Great Gatsby and it provided specific imagery in the book, which helped me understand it better. Mrs. Jenkins, my English teacher, was one of the reasons I started to read again and journal more often. Something she said had stayed into my mind and it turned around for
