From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research. I really enjoyed working the kids. Since they were in 7th and 8th grade, it was sometimes hard to remind them how important the work we were doing was, even if it was 9am on a Saturday morning. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed working with the program.
The first and most important reason is the learning experience that being an area officer would provide. Second, is the opportunity to develop and better my leadership skills. The third and final reason why I want to be an Area 15 FFA officer, is to learn skills and knowledge that I can in turn use to help benefit my
This book is written by Ai-Ling Louie. This fictional book targets students in grades second to fifth. Yeh-Shen is a Chinese retold fairy tale from the central themed Cinderella story. This story is about a young Chinese girl who overcomes the maliciousness of her stepmother and stepsister and becomes the bride of a prince. Incorporating this version into my lesson plan is a great way for students to gain knowledge of the Chinese culture through fictional
My literacy journey started when I was four years old. During that time, my grandmother, Martina Elizabeth Moatshe, was a teacher at her pre-school. She helped me with regards to spelling, counting and English intonation. She believed that it was vital for one to be able to grasp certain concepts regarding language devices such as recognizing different literary elements [the protagonist and antagonist in the ‘Three Little Pigs’] and different literacy techniques [assonance and repetition with regards to nursery rhymes]. At the age of six, I graduated grade R and commenced grade one at Central Secondary School.
I would modify this lesson by incorporating additional higher-order questions to meet the needs of students who require a greater challenge. Overall, I found this to be a successful lesson that captured attention and encouraged participation.

Just like other situations, when I fail or do bad on a test or assignment, I learn from it and set a goal to do better on the next one. It is more of a mindset than anything else. If you believe it will get better, then it will. By having a positive attitude and carrying that same mindset, it can help you be optimistic, and that is a skill we all need to live
In college I could be a tutor and help clear the fog away from the brains of some of the students to have them get the grades they want to obtain. Then, since my plan is to be a high school math teacher, tutoring is great practice for me to learn how to get the point across to the students and help them not hate math, unlike so many middle school and high school students do today. Maybe I will even be able to help others find their love for math, just like my middle school math teacher did for me. Or I could just teach them math until their heads explode, which ever
For example, Lupe won the school spelling bee, she won the blue ribbon award in the science fair, she was the winner of a reading contest at the library three summers in a row, she was also the top student in her piano recital, and she was the playground champion of chess. Talk about a ton of awards, right? Lupe feels like none of these awards mean anything though. Lupe wishes she could win some type of award in athletics, so that she can keep up with the other girls in her school, that’s why Lupe is working towards her goal of being the marble champion. Also, in one case in the story, when Lupe was playing marbles on her bed, she figured out that her bedspread was slowing down the marbles as she shot them.
To me it was hot, smelly and crowded, but it felt like home to Bailey. She had always thought that the fair had always smelled sweet like funnel cakes and hay. Finally, after waiting for a while the results were in. Bailey had placed first in the fair for her cookies. Not only did she get first, but she also got second in show, coming in close to a plate of sugar cookies.
I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing. At first, I didn 't think I would enjoy it, but after I completed my first project, a headband, I felt very proud of myself that I made a headband designed by me that I could wear.
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).
