All they see on paper are lines moving. In the beginning she has no friend coming into 6th grade and every time the teacher (Mrs.Silver) gives them an assignment to do that involves reading or writing she won 't do it. The teacher doesn 't know that she has dyslexia so she just thinks that Ally is really stupid. Then she got a new teacher Mr.Daniels and he found out that she has dyslexia and is helping her to learn how to
All throughout middle school when we were assigned to read a novel I would dread it. My perspective of reading for enjoyment soon changed when I was in eighth grade. Mrs. Benavides, my eighth grade language arts teacher, assigned our class to read The Outsiders, and I coursed I was complained in my head, I don’t want to read (actually pretend to read and then use Sparknotes) another lame book. The first day we got the book we were all told to read chapters 1 through 3, and this time all of the kids in my class complained and I wasn’t the only one. So, there I was at home in front of my computer typing in “the outsiders by S.E Hinton”, into Google, and the top search that popped up was a link to the movie on Youtube.
n AP Chemistry, test scores weigh heavily on our grade in the class so they are not taken lightly. It just so happened that the Tennessee HOSA (Future Health Professionals) Leadership Conference coincided with the final days of lecture and review for the test that was to take place the day after HOSA members arrive home. My teacher specifically told me and a classmate, who was also a HOSA competitor, that we were not expected to take the test on Monday but rather one day after school. Since she had given us extra time, we both focused on studying for our respective competitions rather than the AP Chemistry test. This, however, turned out to be a horrible mistake.
I am thriving in school, and even though I don't enjoy coming to school as much as i enjoyed waking up at 11:00am, starting school after lunch, and finishing around three, all while still wearing my pajamas. I know it was the right choice. I am having a great time having feedback from teachers instead of just getting test grades and an unexplained “A-” on my end of the year portfolio. Being surrounded by people, Even if i don't necessarily like them has shown itself to be an extremely good thing in my life. Learning how to feel frustrated but still be kind, and how to work effectively in a group.
Finally, our last meet came up and I had been very excited. At that time I contemplated whether or not I would do cross country the next year in 8th grade. Though I didn't really come up with a clear answer, I promised myself that at this last meet I would do my very best. We all lined up at the starting line and waited to be released. As I waited for what seemed like forever for the starting gun, I contemplated about how I did in previous races and how much better I would try to do in this one.
One of my experiences with failure took place when I was in fourth grade. There were many problems accumulated and I was a child who needed people to see if I did my homework or study for the test, because I couldn’t concentrate and was distracted by anything in the room. My brother also had problems that year, he needed more attention because he didn’t get along with his math teacher and my Mom was always after him with the homework; otherwise he would have failed Math at the end of the year. In fourth grade, the teacher that was assigned to us was one of the strict teachers that were in that school and I think that was too much for a student in fourth grade. In the first day of school, I realized I was with some of my friends in my class
Test make us like zombies. Every year we take around 1-3 STAAR exam 's depending on if you passed previous ones or your grade level. After a day that we are stuck in a class taking a test that gives result 's based on what you learned throughout the year, we the student 's, are too tired physically and mentally to deal with anything and that includes homework. We do not need to take test, we need to learn to grow up to be well-rounded adults, to be prepared for society and all of its forthcoming. We need to learn and understand what they are trying to educate us on so we will not be doomed to repeat the same mistakes that society has already passed through.
After I am able to drive, I decided to go back to school to get a degree. I surprised they let me take ESL test when I came to school. I heard from my husband there just have placement test, and I thought English could not improve in a short period, so I decided focus study math. Without surprised, even I felt the ESL test not hard, but I still failed. I felt upset, blamed my husband, and complained school did not give me chance retest in a long time.
I knew from the time I walked in the classroom that my teacher was about to give us this lame writing assignment that I had no interest in doing. My Snickers candy bar that I got from the vending machine on my way to class was literally the only thing giving me life at that point. For some reason my energy always hit an all-time low when it was almost time to go home. All around me I heard the whispers of my classmates. They were all chatting about what they were doing this weekend.
I had my first tuition class when I was 10 years old. The need came when I cried my eyes out for a Mandarin composition homework that I couldn’t write. My parents themselves were stumped by the homework and thought it was best to enrol me in a Mandarin tuition class. Nowadays, kids as young as 3 years old are enrolled in tuition classes. Is there even a need to send these children for extra classes?
The problem with that was I did not know how long it would take to update the computers and I had to pick up my daughter before the daycare closed at 5:30 P.M. I attempted to update the computers when they took the students out to conduct an exercise. SFC Joe Smith came into the classroom where I was conducting the computer updates cussing and screaming. I tried to explain to him that if I conducted the updates as he requested I would be late picking up my daughter from the daycare. He did not
We played soccer, football, and sometimes basketball. When I passed to 6th grade all my friends went to Tejeda while I went to Bush. This wasn’t so bad for me because I saw a chance to make new friends, and I have, although I still miss my other friends I feel like I have more friends here. Recess; recess was the best part of the whole school year. I got to hangout with my friends we would play soccer, football, and sometimes basketball I got to talk and talk and talk without getting in trouble from the teachers!!!
I remember my mom and I repetitively filling out absent forms, so I could go compete at a horseshow. The make up work started to build up, and eventually it got to the point where riding and attending school seemed almost impossible. Fortunately, I knew a few people who used online programs, so they could compete and go to school. After researching for the right program, I enrolled to be an official online school student for my second semester freshman year. The program was perfect.
I thought to myself "this is not what I studied last night". It was two years ago in my English class, Mrs.Brown was telling us about a pop quiz we were gonna have at the end of the week. Just like any other student I began to become agitated not knowing what the could possibly be on. So that night I went home and studied everything i learned during that marking
