I always had a hard time reading, but yet it was not the words I had problems with. I knew what all the words were by memorizing them. However, when it came to stories, I could not remember what I read. I realized this when I took an assessment test in second grade. But after a couple of months of reading out loud, and the games my mother would play with me, reading got a lot easier and after a while I actually enjoyed it.
Each one of our children has different interest, so we usually find ourselves reading two different books a night. Although we only have our daughter part time, when we do have her we try to encourage her to read to us rather than us read to her considering she is old enough to read on her own. Our two-year-old is always picking up books about tractors or cars, he loves to hear us read to him. I hope to pass my love of reading to each of my children and continue to find books myself to read and
So I felt like I had no free time because once I was done with one assignment I had to start another one. I felt like I already knew what my antecedents were. I felt like they were going to my sister in laws every weekend which all we did was eat and watch movies or shows. Also whenever I went home after school I couldn’t focus on doing my work I would eat then sit in the couch and watch television why trying to do my homework.
Torres.She would always tell us to read books and enter different mind sets. In an away game for Volleyball she told us to read a romantic book Sunday 's at Tiffany 'sand I never really read it, till a book fair came around and a book caught my eye and ironically happened to be that same book.So,I bought it and it became one of my favorite books. Books I think are powerful. Books contain so much more than just the story it 's a mindset, and by reading different books, I feel we can be alike in some ways but completely different from others. We will always have likes and dislikes, but once we start to read a book I think we can go in with an open mind set and when we finish, or if we don 't we have are own opinion.
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
Reading this book gave me a great indication on what type of reader I was. Being only a little kid, this book took me weeks to finish. Always procrastinating, and finding ways to get out of it. The type of reader I would describe myself when I first started reading was sluggish. Having this issue, I got put into an “extra help” reading class.
Before, I tended to cram a day or two before a test or a quiz. This led to me not retaining any of the information since I was trying to learn the material over a short period of time. Additionally, I became stressed out since studying for long sessions right before a test didn’t give me any room for my mind to breathe. With these 2 techniques, I hope to see an improvement in my time management. Day 1 (Tuesday) My first goal was to begin studying for my chemistry quiz on Friday.
Reading is a fun experience but a really hard one to focus on. The first book was an alright read. It was a great book that had a lot of twists and had an interesting, thick plot. The next book would have been a great read, but I shot too high and came back with very little results. When I broke my arm I missed 5 days of school or approximately an hour of reading and I had too much homework to catch up.
As well as the fact that I’m horrible at all my english classes, it might be a good idea to get those improved. I watch a lot of Youtube on my free time because when I get done with all my homework and chores around the house I chill.I don’t have many plans after school but I’ll take it one day at a time. Those are my plans for academic success. One of my academic plans is to pass all my classes with a C average. The reason I want a C is because my mom never wants an F or a low D in my grade book.
My short term goal for this week and the week coming forward is to continue to use my time wisely to study for the last few test that we will have. I have progressed a lot this month with getting my grade up. In the beginning of the month I can honestly say I did not use my time like I should have. I did not fully read the chapters I was given, and my grade showed. The second quiz my grade went up a little more, and during that time I did take the time to read some, but not all chapters.
I told my mom that we were meeting with an old friend from middle school that moved to Stockton and we all wanted to see a movie. Knowing my mom, she thought It was worse and thought I was gonna be catfished and I wasn 't gonna be meeting a guy my age but a pedophile so she called her friends that are in law enforcement to do a background check on the name he gave me and on his number. I told her several times that I video chatted with him and he was actually who he said he was but she never wanted to sit down and hear what I was actually trying to say so she took my phone away and pretended to be me and texted him to
My note taking skills have also further improved as a result of the reading we did for class. In my previous school, writing in the books was something that was frowned upon. We were expected to jot down notes in a notebook, which ended up breaking the flow of the reading and it was more difficult than just highlighting a section and writing a quick note. Because of this rule I did not take notes about the book I was reading very often, thus I did not learn how to properly annotate my books. I now keep character lists in my book as well as highlighting possible foreshadowing, symbols and motifs, and different literary
When I turned into a freshman, I decided to transfer to a deaf school for my high school years and graduated there. By then, my struggles with my writing and reading were improving by working hard. IN my freshman, there was an English teacher, Mrs. Copeland-Samaripa, a strict teacher I ever had seen and I failed this class once because of lack of my doing in homework and tests. I didn’t want to repeat the grade so I decided to work hard by studying notes for test and turned homework in on time. For next two years, I really didn’t learn lot about writing because of different teachers weren’t taught me very well then in my senior year, a bearded man, Mr. Dirk, came in my life.
