Reading and writing was one of my favorite activities to do as a kid, and it still is. Ever since I learned to read, I began to write short stories. Oh, how rude of me! I forgot to introduce myself. Hello Mr.Rase, my name’s Elena Serafimovski and I’m a writer in my junior year of high school.
The librarian was so impressed with my story that she entered my book in the young author's contest. I won 1st place at my school and I was so proud. I never thought I could finish the assignment, let alone win the contest.From then I began writing stories on my computer and telling my friends and family. People loved how much detail I would add to my stories, all the twists and turns they had. The joy I had with writing lessened away the older I got.
The True Diary of Luke Skewis By; Luke Skewis Hi I’m Luke Skewis. I’m a 5’7, Sophomore at Negaunee High School. The stories you are about to read and very important lessons I learned from my friends, family, and coaches. I hope you enjoy The True Diary of Luke Skewis. 2nd Grade It was Super Bowl Sunday and I invited all of my friends over for a “Super Bowl Party.” It was the first one that I had as a kid.
my first days in my new country were tough because I did not speak the same language making it harder to be able to write and communicate with the people around me. But as soon as I learned the language things got a little bit more easier. My writing improve a lot I went from writing short sentences to paragraphs and to writing complete essays for school. I still remember an accident I had with my English teacher on sophomore year of high school. She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”.
Reading and writing have always been two things that I enjoy. From the time I was three years old, I was already reading books and coming up with my own stories, hugely based off of TV shows I watched at a young age. As I have gotten older, I have expanded my taste in literature, from plays to nonfiction to fantasy. Some of my favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Agatha Christie, and William Shakespeare. I went to a small, private Catholic school for my first nine years of education, where I was in a graduating class of 16 students.
Having annual passes to the local theme park, Walt Disney World, I was able to see the characters from the pages come to life in a special way. I have always been fascinated by the connections made with the character from Perrault’s tales and the applications able to be made to real life experiences. This paper is an in depth search into the implementation of the morals portrayed in the tales. When sitting in English class one day a few weeks ago, my well known teacher informed us that we would be starting to write a paper. The students, as one could imagine, went into a full out sigh and had a defensive anger against this new dreadful assignment.

Where the Red Fern Grows. My favorite book of all time. I read it in the sixth grade, and I’ve never cried so hard in my life, aside from when I was born, nothing tops that. I was always eager to read that book during my english class and would even read ahead of the class, which was very
All of your memories while watching the show invade your feelings and thoughts. The song is almost over and you happily shout, "How to get to Sesame Street!" Almost every person has seen the fascinating award winning show called Sesame Street during their childhood. Although you might not have thought about it, it took a lot of time and effort to bring it together. This show has gone through some rough times but even after that, it
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” These were the words that my elementary teacher told my class before a summer vacation. I never forgot them because they were the reason I ever got into my creative writing. I’ve been writing stories for both profit and pleasure for the last ten years, and each one is an example of my improvement. I took this class as a review course after my recent two year hiatus, and I believe that I have made an improvement in my writing as a whole. Before I took this course, I wasn’t confident in my organizational skills, I couldn’t make my stories flow, and I wasn’t sure if I was using correct grammar and punctuation, or just making a fool of myself.
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
Perhaps it was the loneliness that followed Michael around after she left when he was fifteen. More likely than not, Michael’s lifelong obsession with Hanna caused him to reach back and try to hold on to one of their old rituals. He is not able to bathe or sleep with her, so he instead decides to read to her. This is only further proven when the first book he records to send to her in prison is The Odyssey – the first book he ever read to her as a child. Soon Michael “began writing [himself], [so he] read these pieces aloud to her as well” (Schlink 185).
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).
Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life. During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking.
This I feel is the reason I hated literacy until high school. In high school I was assigned to a Sarah Schuette, who was my case manager in the rescue room in high school. She is the reason I started loving to read and write. With her support and encouragement I was able to do any class in high school that I wanted, she made me take a writing class and a individualized reading class, which grew my love for reading and writing. I love to read books that I will learn from, I read a lot of books about horses as they are a big part of my life.
