Bearded dragons consume both animal matter and plant matter – they are omnivorous lizards, and in the wild, a bearded dragon can spend hours hunting and foraging to get its fill of enough nutrients to last it for the day. In captivity, it is easy to imagine that a bearded dragon will have little or no trouble getting its fill of food, because reptile keepers can just buy what the critter needs.

Explanation: When you bring the shotgun to your shoulder, the stock should be brought to your cheek first and then back to your shoulder. A common error is lowering the head and cheek to the stock, instead of bringing the stock all the way up to the cheek. When done properly, with your head naturally erect, the gun butt always should come to the same spot on your shoulder.

“Slaying the Dragon” by Deborah Gee is a comprehensive look at media stereotypes of Asian and Asian American women since the silent era. From the racist use of white actors to portray Asians in early Hollywood films, through the success of Anna May Wong’s sinister dragon lady, to Suzie Wong and the ‘50s geisha girls, to the Asian-American anchorwoman of today. The movie also shows how stereotypes of exoticism and docility have affected the perception of Asian-American women.

While reading through books I sometimes find myself just saying the words in my head and they begin to have no meaning. By trying to create a picture in my head and linking together what I am reading to something that I heard in the past I find myself able to comprehend the passages in the book. I will then have an understanding of what is being said and will be able to recall what I read at a later time. Any time that I find this happening to me I will stop get up to take a break before I sit back down to read what I missed all over
They all arrive at their destination in the deserted lands of ireland to hopefully seek out the dna of an ancient fire breathing dragon. thomas, who is billy’s partner in the lab, discovers dragon footprints from millions of years ago that were fossilized in the ground that lead that lead them to a colony of fossilized dragon bones from many types of dragon.

Initially, the environment is of utmost concern. We must balance the needs of the environment vs. human needs, and the author believes this is upside-down in today's world. These two things are not something considered equal in importance; they are more like connections. Diamond believes that people are selfish and put their own needs ahead of other important things in the world (685).
Within their table groups which had been set up deliberately by the teacher to get children with similar reading levels together, the children had to explore different features of the book. One group would work on questions they wanted to ask the characters, another would take in turns to read the book and highlight words they did not understand or had trouble reading. Tennant (2014: 165) tells us that the text used during guided reading should be challenging but the children should still be capable of decoding it. I observed this to be true during my school placement because the children were able to show a wide understanding of what was happening within the book however when they were asked questions about how the character was feeling or what they think would happen next, they took a bit more time to try and get an understanding of this. Tennant (2016) states that “the teacher’s task is to deepen the reader’s understanding of the text by initially ascertaining what sense the reader has made of the text just after having read it”. Tennant’s statement can be evaluated as useful for teaching a good level of guided reading because teachers have to broaden the children’s knowledge of the text. My own observations seemed to be a success because each group was paired with an adult and each adult was drawing out information from pupils by asking questions that got them thinking. Not only were they getting an idea of what children already knew about the text but they
“Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk boldly through them”. Slaying my dragon was an exhausting rollercoaster ride. My journey was not simple. Switching schools, making new friends, and dealing with change was difficult--but not impossible.

Guided Practice: “As you are reading today, use a sticky note to mark your text-to-self connections. Be ready to explain your thinking to me when we meet with guided reading.”
Because we are taught to only care about ourselves, we are highly apathetic about others, especially those that we do not have direct contact with. We simply do not care about the conditions that other people live in, how or whether they eat, or whether they have a dry, safe place to sleep at night. As long as how others live does not affect us, we have no reason to care, because society teaches us that we are the only ones that matter. As long as we are happy, we don’t have to care about anybody else. Even if we are not happy, we only need to care about others just enough to get them to give us
