It was not until my senior year in high school that I wrote my first thesis paper. Since then as an adult, I have made a point to increase my reading and writing abilities. I do not exactly remember when during my childhood that reading started to become a struggle for me. However, I do remember as early as third grade having to leave my classroom to go to another building for tutoring in reading. As I progressed through the years, the school eventually separated the
Not only did this help my passion of reading to grow, it also created special bonds that can never be broken. Because Mrs. Cain had opened my eyes a whole new world of books, I found it easier to find novels that I could engage in. I had begun to read books about topics that interested my such as horses, magic, mysteries, and books that told a realistic story. I read books like Black Beauty, the Harry Potter series, and several realistic fiction books such as Because of Winn Dixie. This world of books that I was unfamiliar with had suddenly become available to me, finally making me an avid reader, which I continue to be to this day.
The way I prepared myself for this book was on every page I had at least about three sticky notes stating the important facts and at the end of the chapter I had a one sentence summary stating the main idea opic of that chapter. This method I have found out has helped me the most it helps me remember certain things better due to my short-term memory loss. For my writing method, I tend to make outlines so I don’t get off topic. Both of my reading and writing method I have discovered for myself throughout my school years has helped me learn better and just in generally better myself academic wise.
Mahnaz Dar of the School Library Journal says that, “Author Kate DiCamillo has always gotten kids reading, whether by writing mesmerizing stories, like the Newbery-winning The Tale of Despereaux (2003) and Flora & Ulysses (2013, both Candlewick), or by advocating for the importance of literacy” (Dar). This quote shows how when children recognize authors that have written some of their favorite books, the author’s credibility increases in the child’s mind, causing them to be more encouraged to read books written by the same author. Kate DiCamillo has won numerous awards, proving what a beloved, talented author she is, such as 2014 Newbery Medal or 2014 E.B. White Read Aloud Award, and 22 more awards for Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures alone. The fact that she has won such a large amount of awards for her literature shows how much her readers enjoy her books along with what a respected author she is, which can have the power to influence kids to read Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures.
It is some times easy for me too select books for my self but some times I cant find a book that is a good book for me. I have specific types of books I want to read in different times I cant find a type of book I want to read and I don’t know what to read. I go about selecting a book by asking a librarian is there any new good books, and as I said before I go to the Internet to see if there is any interesting books. Some times I look at Sakura medals since they always have good books, or I used to look at High School section since they have different, interesting, and difficult books. 11.
This is when I learned that reading was fun and understood why my classmates would check out 2 chapters books in the library. Just like reading, I found writing in a different language amazing. From a small age, I automatically knew how to read and write in Spanish, it was weird to my parents because they never taught me. Therefore, when I learned how to spell and write in English I felt powerful. Not because I knew to do this skill in two different languages, but because I was going to be able to do my homework in English and share what I had written in my “weekend journal” to the class.
There has been reading since the alphabet was first created thousands of years ago, but just recently, reading has taken on a new purpose. Reading in the modern day is a way to escape from a realty, good or bad, that people live in. People all over the world are suffering in their day to day life but now reading book especially fiction book allows them to escape. This helps people get over many problems such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thought. Many people have written about this such as Tim Gillespie.
I like how every year in English the classes get harder and harder because then I have to use my brain even more. My favorite books I have ever read will probably be The Lightning Thief, The Blood of Olympus, and The Serpent’s Shadow. In my opinion they are great books to read, I highly recommend anyone to read them. Just from reading those three books I learned many new words. I enjoy Persuasive writing, just because I like to persuade people.
My experience as a reader isn 't as extraordinary as many, but I love to read. I had some great teachers throughout my education that taught me to enjoy reading challenge oneself and not be intimidated by it. Through college and today I do not have much time to read, other than school books speech, education ,and reading. Those are the sweet books I know read. Beside all those school books I now read, I use to read books about life, and history I also lloved mystery books the ones that make one wonder and keep you guessing till the end.
By gaining a motive, having a passion, and figuring out what caused me to stop loving to read, made my love for reading become stronger than ever before. Reading hasn’t always been a feeling of force put upon me. I once remember loving to read. When I was in elementary school I loved reading the Junie
Whenever Theodore had a moment, he would spend it reading. He usually read several books at a time, reading on average a book a day all throughout his life. He specifically loved stories about the American frontier because he loved learning about history. As soon as he learned to read, he read classics such as Swiss Family Robinson, Little Men, Little Women, and Robinson Crusoe in a heartbeat. Sometimes, instead of reading them himself, he would beg his father to read them to him.
It was until the 6th grade when I really enjoyed reading the Junie B Jones books. The Junie B Jones books were my favorite. I still remember every week in my reading class our teacher would take us to the library to check out a book. I would always go for the smallest book, but books with great illustrations in the cover because those were my favorite. There was one book in particular that I loved to check out, and was another one of my favorites the book was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst.
I am better able to communicate myself verbally and in my writing and, quite interestingly, I am better able to gather and arrange my thoughts in a more cohesive manner. Fast forward almost half a decade later, Hemingway is still one of my favorite writers to read, but I now enjoy reading the works of Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon, and David Foster Wallace. And that is another great thing about reading—you are able to pick up a book that was written either last year or last century, and your first experience picking up and reading that book is something only you can
