One of my favorite memories growing up is how much time I spent reading. Whenever I got a new book I couldn 't put it down. I remember that I would always read on the bus ride home. Reading was something that I liked to do. As I’ve gotten older my choice of books has changed alot, a different genre for each of my phases.
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear, had become one of my favorite bedtime stories when my grandmother read it to me, as a toddler. She would put so much thought and action behind her words that I would be able to remember what part was coming next. Moreover, it was the only story I would have her read when we stayed the night at Papa and Gaga’s house. I would always remember saying “Again, Again Gaga, please just one more time” and it usually worked, but she would never read it to us more than twice. As time grew and the older I grew, I started reading these books on my own.
In various stages of relaxation, we gathered on the couch and talked about life from where we’re thinking of going to college to old elementary school memories. The night was fraught of laughter and warm conversations that I could not believe took years to eventually come to. By the end of the night, my mouth was tired from smiling the entire time. All in all, I had a great a time. Mind you, I have not seen these friends in ages – literally ages.
Time passed quickly and soon, it was time to head home. The girls were all planning a slumber party at Kylie’s. Her parents had gone out of town for the weekend, and she wasn’t willing to stay alone. We began our evening of leisure by getting into our PJ 's, and returning to our scary stories. Before realizing it, another hour had passed.
I guess that led to the development of my interest in modern television series, which I would spend hours binging the entire season. My family would watch television during dinnertime and we would spend the night discussing the plot of a drama series, I think it really gave us a common topic to bond over. Time passed and I had a regular preteen phase where I obsessed over celebrities, so magazines are without a doubt the best way to find out every detail about their lives. I have to say that mass media played a fairly big part of my early life. Being a millennial, social media has definitely had more impact on myself than the mass media, so I will be focusing my account on the former.
My first writing experience I can remember is from elementary school. I was in the 3rd grade and my librarian asked me to write her a short book because she used to hear me tell my friends stories. At first, I wondered why would she assigned me this hard task. I didn’t know what to write about. I went home and began looking for inspiration for my story.
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. Since I only read the first book my entire essay will solely be based on how I felt when I read this book. The kind of books that I enjoy reading are the ones that have thick plots and twists, I really loved the dynamics of the characters in this book. The way that the story blended a subject like crime into a setting that it's not normally seen. I thought that the most intense part of the story was the gambling and the planning it put an image in my head of a kid
Your smile was of pure joy and was breath taking. You looked so much like your momma. It felt so real and I can feel your hands still. I woke up and was trying desperately to go back to sleep to see you again to no avail. Every since that dream I have tried to duplicate it by thinking about you every night before bed.
It all started when I was about seven or eight years old. My mother use to read me the beloved Frost classic, "The Road Not Taken" (Frost, The Road Not Taken 131)every night before bed. Even today I can still picture the universe that was created with every sentence she read. That poem was my life, I made it my lifework to take that so called "road not taken" and it helped me become the person I am today. "I took the road less traveled and that made all the difference."
“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.
When my father was a child, my grandmother bought him Dr. Seuss books. Every night my grandma would read to my father. Once my father knew how to read, he would read stories to my grandma. He traded the Dr. Seuss books in for a series of books that held various fairytales. When my father went to college he kept the Dr. Seuss and fairytale books.
Kindergarten through third grade I attended Rozelle Elementary school. The school had two different buildings, it was the kindergarten through second grade and then the third through sixth grade. I couldn 't This was my favorite school, I loved going here and the people here. My first day I probably cried, I really don 't remember. Learning how to read and write was easy because my mom had already gone over a lot of basic things with me over the summer.
Book Addition to the Ninth Grade Reading Curriculum After spending the whole night with her childhood friend, Quentin “Q” Jacobsen, Margo Roth Spiegelman goes missing the next day. During the search, Q and his friends, Lacey, Radar, and Ben, learn more about Margo. This book is well-written, enjoyable to read, and shares common themes with other books. Paper Towns by John Green should be read by ninth graders because of common themes it shares with other books, like friendship, coming of age, and freedom. The theme friendship is in Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, as well as Paper Towns by John Green.
Professor, Zmoda, I never really had a favorite children’s going as a kids, but I have read many interesting books. I own half of the Dr. Seuss collection. I remember reading books by Stan and Jane Berenstain and Bill Martin. I have read this about to share so many times to my son and his friends at daycare. Today, I would have brought in the book,called Tiptoe Into Kindergarten written and illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers.
I started reading before I went to Kindergarten. I don’t have one particular favorite but I have favorites such as Harry Potter, Vampire Academy, The Lunar Chronicles, The Darkest Minds, Percy Jackson, The Mortal Instruments. I have a book shelf that goes from the floor to the ceiling and it 's overflowing. My mom hates taking me to Barnes and Noble because I take forever and I already have “enough” books. I normally read over the summer,between 150 to 200 hours.
