Not because I knew to do this skill in two different languages, but because I was going to be able to do my homework in English and share what I had written in my “weekend journal” to the class. Over the course of four years my teachers and Mrs. Smith were proud of me because I had become basically fluent in English. They told me I had improved and advanced a lot in my studies and was ready to take the final test to end with my ELA classes. I agreed to take the test and passed with a good score; back then I was
Professor, Zmoda, I never really had a favorite children’s going as a kids, but I have read many interesting books. I own half of the Dr. Seuss collection. I remember reading books by Stan and Jane Berenstain and Bill Martin. I have read this about to share so many times to my son and his friends at daycare. Today, I would have brought in the book,called Tiptoe Into Kindergarten written and illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers.
As a young reader and writer, there are many milestones to be crossed in order to evolve within literacy, and for me personally, the most impactful milestone to be obtained was discovering my passion of reading novels, particularly in the time of my later elementary school years. As a math minded elementary student, there was little english work that I would find myself fully engaged in, however, that had all changed by the time I had reached Mrs. Cain’s fourth grade class. Each day, Mrs. Cain would read aloud Blue, a children’s novel
My earliest reading memory was in Kindergarten. Every day we practiced our reading skills with simple picture books. I was very proud because I was in the “advanced” group with one other student. Once I learned to read it became an important part of my life. I remember reading books from Dr. Seuss to Magic Tree House to Junie B. Jones and Harry Potter.
When I was little, my favorite book was The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. Every night I would have my parents read it before I went to bed. I loved everything about it from the storyline, to the characters, to the ending. But as I read it again when I’m older, I realize many different things that I had not noticed when I was a
West as well. He says that his family is together more because of school. His wife teaches music, musical theatre, and is the head volleyball coach. Both of his kids are in the elementary school at Southcrest as well. However, he is busier during the school year and has “to carve out time for family.” He says, “I was lucky for the opportunity to work with high school students and make an impact on their lives and have always enjoyed reading and writing.” Mr. West has learned many things, such as patience, from his students.
Language acquisition is a fundamental stage of childhood, as is generally the focus for 6- to 12-year-old school children (Bee et al., 2018). As a child, I was encouraged by my parents to read as an independent hobby. Research suggests the importance of motivating children to prepare for independent reading in school, as it contributes to one’s reading performance in adulthood (Bee et al., 2018). My genuine passion and interest in reading influenced my literary ability from an early age, and I was reading novels by kindergarten and was often placed in gifted reading programs. Had I not been so interested in reading as a child, my literary aptitude may not be at the level where it is
My dad worked for IBM as a computer engineer, and my mom stayed home to take care of my brother and me. I started elementary school at Hagan Elementary School in the district of Spackenkill. From third to fifth grade, I participated in a program called Odyssey of the Mind, where we developed creative problem solving skills. Odyssey of the Mind was probably my favorite experience of elementary school, because it was a space where I could be weird and free with people just as weird as me. I also made friends during this time period with whom I am still close with.
During my local trip to Cypress Hills library, On February 16, 2016, at 1pm, I entered the library to return some of my overdue books and decided that I would conducted my observation at this located due to the fact that it was extremely packed with parents and their children. I decided that today would be a perfect day to conduct my assignment because all the children were on vacation. The tables were filled of children and their parents. I noticed some of the parents browsing the aisle in the library looking at books. The wait to get on the computer was about 45 minutes and as I looked over to that section three young children were on the computers and three adults sat on the opposite side on the computer as well.
I remember the first time I read a Magic Tree House book was in class during our reading break after that I was hooked on the books I would go to the store and buy a book, come home read it and then go back to the store and buy the next one and so on and so

In my elementary years I remember having a reading class called S.F.A (Success for All). The S.F.A class was every single day at 8am and it lasted for about 45 minutes. The class consisted in getting into partners and moving our chairs sideways and reading a small book to each
Im still reading the magic tree house. Granted the book were extremely good from what I can remember.

When it came time to starderd test like the EOG, I was given extra time, I had some one actual read my test to me. The Next big step for me in my reading happened in 7th grade when I found a new book series to read.
