Why should kids have homework? Some people believe homework is necessary it helps you practice and get ready for the next class, others believe homework isn’t necessary and it only causes stress and is boring. Students benefit from homework because it improves the parent/child relationship, allows them to learn knew things and communicate with teachers, and practice and understand knew material.
From the moment that I was able to read on own, my life completely changed. I lived in the library, once a week my mother drove me there to pick out a slew of books for the upcoming week. The first book that I read on my own was Curious George, I used to read it aloud to my mother every night before I went to bed. Another person whom I share many reading memories with is my older brother, who was a very early reader. We used to burn through books together afterschool. We would switch off reading every page; our favorite read was the magic school book series. In second grade, My favorite class was english, because every week we had “Free Read Fridays”. Every friday the
After taking the literacy survey I asked my dad why he thought reading was important. He gave me a look that said I’ve told you this a million times and said, “Reading is the key to success.” This is a common truth. However, the real question is, if reading is so necessary, then what can I do to master it. After twenty-one years of life I cannot say that I know all there is to know about reading and writing, but I can say that through my experiences I have learned to love reading and it has made all the difference.
It seemed that learning to read simply could not come fast enough. When we went to the library, I would read any book that they told me I could. Reading on the bus, in my room, during class, anywhere I had enough space to read and my book with me. I loved the concept of visualizing the characters in my mind and watching them interact with one another, and for that reason, the only books I usually read during this time were fiction. Whether it was realistic or not, or if the characters were male or female, I would follow the story wherever it went, and I loved to see where it would take me. Some of my first books that I read were the Series of Unfortunate Events and I found myself sympathizing with the Baudelaire children as they had to fight against Count Olaf; or I travelled through the land of Narnia with Lucy and found myself standing under the lamppost. My interest in reading had soared in elementary school, and I was free to read as I pleased.
I first reading as a young girl and my mother loved to take my sisters and I to the library. I loved looking at all of the books and choosing the best one. I became interested in books that were about adventure. My favorite one had a gypsy girl who was constantly trying to save other people from the evil monsters.
First of all, homework causes material being taught in class the next day to have greater relevance and is easier to understand. Students who don’t do their homework tend to not understand the material being taught the next day as described in the article, “Why Homework Matters: Top Five (5) Reasons You Probably Should Do Your Homework” by Michael Bromley. According to the article, “If you don’t do your homework, you will most often not know what the teacher is doing in class the next day. (Bromley 2)” If you did do your homework, you would better understand the material being taught the next day. If you don’t do your homework, would fall behind the students who did do their homework. Also, you would have an extremely difficult time catching
Reading is a basic skill that students develop and improve throughout their whole life. There will always be room to improve a person’s reading skills; whether they be nine or ninety, one’s brain will always be building and making new connections and like Jonathan Seagull, one should strive to improve.
The criteria that can apply to me that measure my effort, work and so on I have put into this course would be that I have consistently done (or attempted) all of the assigned homework. My homework was always turned in on time. I have printed off all of the
1. The teacher established a mathematical goal to focus learning. In the beginning of the reading it said “Mr. Harris wanted his third-grade students to understand the structure of multiplication and decided to develop a task
Ever wonder why we need homework in middle school when it just takes up our time? To most people world wide homework just takes time away from thier video games and social media, but to others homework helps them understand a topic more clearly. Now that we are in middle school more and more people think that teachers should stop giving out homework.
In High School, your parents were always there to see that you succeeded and accomplished your goals. As soon as you arrived home from school, your parents would ask how your day was and following that question was if you had any homework. At that time, you would be instructed to complete it. If you dared to ignore their warning, you may risk getting all of your privaledges taken away until you complied. So you you preceeded to do your homework. While you completed your homework, you silently wished that you had the freedom to do as you pleased. In College you have the freedom to make all the decisions in your life. There is no one there breathing down your neck to make sure you completed your homework. No one to take away your belongings as collateral. You are on your own. For many first time students, this is a terrifying thought. Many feel that the requirement to live on campus is a terrible
This project is honestly a lot like the real world, people with less money don't get as many benefits as the people who have more money and can actually afford to pay for things that make life alot easier. For instance my family who had more money easily had enough to get what we wanted to make our egg safe a lot like the real world and how people have money to keep their child safe.
However, I digress. I grew up in Pasadena, California, being raised mainly by my great-grandmother. When she reached ninety years old, her health began to decline, at which point, I began to take care of myself, my mom, and her (my great-grandmother); I was eight. I have learned a lot about being responsible for myself because of that. During that time, my only vise was reading. I would spend hours at the Hastings Branch Library, which resided across the street from my house. I read everything I could get my hands on, sometimes checking twenty-five books out at one time; I am a fast reader and I would get through probably half of those books in a day or maybe two. I read to escape my troubles, to be anywhere other than where I was. Books were
Since I was a younger girl, I have had reading in my home. My earliest memory of reading was when I was about ten or eleven years old, I started getting to Lurlene Mcdaniel books. All of her books were about love and would usually end tragically is death. I still do not know why I loved reading these books, but I remember going with my mom to the library and almost finishing my book before she was ready to leave. I read almost every single one of her books at that time. I also had some stories being read to me when I was younger but that was rare in my family.
It wasn't near a big library, but it was massive compared to us. Everyone would go for all the Ripley's Believe It Or Not books so we could just look at the pictures. I remember always pretending I was reading and just thinking all through elementary school. I never really found any interest in reading just for fun or just to entertain myself. The only time I got soul pleasure out of reading was when I was at home on my dad's computer playing my most favorite game in the whole world, Reading Rabbit. Looking back now I wish I still had that game because I really got a kick out of it and wouldn’t mind playing it again to see why I liked it so much.
