What made me the literate person I am today consists of 3 events from my childhood. To start off my reading career, the summer before 4th grade I stayed the night with my grandma. She was my best friend and introduced me to a lot of things, including Mid-Continent Library. The next morning we went to the Burr Oak Woods off 7 highway and had an awesome time! Afterwards we stopped at the library just down the street, I picked out 2 books a magazine and most importantly a movie. At the time I never knew a library would have those types of things so I was pleased. Instead of just using her Mid-Continent Library card to check out everything I had chosen she let me setup my very own! That was so exciting for me, I felt like a grownup, I even bought …show more content…
Jones! Just that name/title brings back so many memories, I recall once my friends and I were in the library waiting to be released from the line to pick out books. The entire time we were in line, we were bickering about who would get which Junie B. Jones book! I cannot think of another time when I had been that excited about a book in forever. That series of books have been so much fun to read always had someone new and crazy going on, reading was much easier for me during those books because I was so interested and locked in. This book had me looking forward to, library day more than gym day, I never would’ve chosen that over gym if it wasn’t for that series of books. Eventually I began to read the Mark Twain books so I could go to the cool party with all the library lady’s. I never actually got far enough to go to the party, but I did advance in my reading because of those books, which they all weren’t “my type” of books. I learned to give every book a good chance before ruling it out, because it’s true you can’t judge a book by its cover. A few other ways Junie B. Jones has affected my reading is by making me realize reading isn’t as bad as some may make it
Jones series have been a favorite within young readers. Junie B. is a kindergartener and many young readers can relate to her actions and situations. She is funny, strong – willed and very prone to misunderstanding and mishaps, very comparable to your average elementary school kids. Something that really caught my eye throughout the book was the use of poor grammar; for example, Junie B. will say she “holded it” or “her favoritest.” Each story within the Junie B. Jones series has a moral lesson to be learned and usually it’s in contrast to whatever obstacle needs to be overcome.
Junie B. Jones Is A Graduation Girl by Barbara Park, was published on May 5th, 2001 by the publisher Random House Children's books. This book has 69 pages and its genre is fiction. This book is about a girl in kindergarten named Junie B. Jones and is graduating to first grade but an accident happens with her cap and gown. This is a very entertaining book to read.
Most of my literacy journey took place in middle school. I enjoyed almost every book I read for a class and enjoyed going to the library. My middle school had the best YA section I read so many books I cannot remember so I just chose ones that I remembered and
She learns how evil people can be, and also, as an effect of her gaining maturity, loses her innocent nature. It’s important to know these things because it provides more knowledge for the reader. It can also broaden the ideas that are about the author herself. No matter what, “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee is a groundbreaking novel, it broke the race barrier for it’s era, and is a timeless
With a list of books to choose from we were told to list them in order of interest, but that it did not guarantee we would get to read the number one book on our list. I listed Touching Spirit Bear number one, and luckily, I was chosen to read it along with six other students. Everyday my group would meet in the back of the room during a certain period of the day. Each member of the group would take turns reading.
As a child, I was very interested in books. If you saw me it was safe to assume that I had a book with me. I attribute my love of reading to my grandparents, who have encouraged and supported my reading habit since I was a child. If I even hinted that I wanted to read a certain book they would get it for me. Avid readers their selves, they recognized the impact literature can have on one’s life.
For my literacy interview I interview a young lady by the name of Jeanette Zamarripa. I did Ms. Jeanette because I have gotten to know her over the years. I met Ms. Jeanette at Lone Star in Tomball a while back, we had a math class together, but we never really talk to each other, until last year we have several classes together, and we did remember each other from the math class we took a while back. I think everything happens for a reason, and that the Lord put people in your path for a reason as well. We were both attending UHD.
My Literacy Narrative There I was, four years old, in a tiny square room with the walls decorated with colorful alphabet letters. Across the round-table sat Mrs. Esseily, my ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. English was a struggle for me because neither of my parents could speak it, yet alone read or write in English.
Growing up I never focused my attention on reading and writing. I found alternate interests in playing video games and bonding with my family. My mother always forced my siblings and I to read three novels every summer, to increase our knowledge, and to expand our imaginations. It wasn’t till later in life where reading became native to me. Every event big or small, helped shape my literacy skills that I’ve achieved through my years of education.
On most essay topics there are specific requirements that must be followed which can then limit the student’s ability to expressively write and cause them to feel less confident since their writing is restricted. Literacy narratives, however, allows the student to write freely and express themselves more due to the fact there is incorrect answer because afterall it is the writer’s own personal experience. In my particular literacy narrative I spoke how disappointed I was to spell “hoax” as “hoaks” in my elementary school’s annual spelling bee even though I still placed fourth overall. Although that tiny detail is not greatly needed, I put that in my essay anyway because I felt like that was something important to share. When it comes to stricter
I 've learned that reading and writing can take me any where I want it to go. I can explore my mind to go anywhere by imagination, by reading and writing. However,My reading and writing experience since I was a kid until now I still having a difficulty. When I was 3 years old my mom started me to learn how to read and write. At first, I 'm having a difficulty to read and write but my mom tried her best to taught me.
Early in my life, I used books as an escape from the harsh reality in front of me. When I was around five years old, I was trapped in an abusive and sheltered household. When the yelling started, I used to hide under my bed and stay very quiet. I would read any book that I could find to keep my mind off what was happening around me. I made myself a safe space under my bed with a light and pillows.
My history as a writer has been a bit of a struggle of slow development. From a young age I had a hard time with spelling and this is still a trouble area for me, even with the help of autocorrect. As I grew in age and as a writer my problematic area became not including enough nitty gritty details. My bad experiences that I recall would always involve the start of writing because I struggle with beginning paragraphs. Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit.
During my elementary years, I don’t recall being interested in reading, but I do remember the first time I fell in love with it. I was in my 7th-grade reading class. I just completed a quiz when my teacher realized that I had nothing to do after. She offered me a book that I will remember for the rest of my life because it is the book that basically started my reading journey. It was called Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper, I loved the book so much that I read the whole entire series.
My education that I have received from the Wausau School District has set me apart as a student because of the great opportunities that are presented to the students and the faculty in the educational system. A large variety of classes are offered in different core areas throughout the schools which gives the ordinary student the chance to experience other areas and interests. I used this to my advantage, when deciding what type of field that I was going into after college. I took a Young Adult Medicine (YAM) class sophomore year to see if I was interested in the medical field and where in this area I was drawn to work in after high school. The Wausau School District has also prepared me for my future college studies and career by challenging
