Looking On and Looking Again 2

The day that I moved from my PMA which was my first school to Nottingham West was probably one of the greatest days of my life. Get the teacher that everyone said was the best I made some friends and I finally was in a place that I felt safe. Until the day that I had to take a reading test and I was not ready for it. Thankful at this time in my life I didn’t know how to read but this is the teacher that noticed that I couldn’t and got me help right away. Everyday in third grade before school started I would go see a reading a specialist that started teaching basic knowledge of how to read and get through school.

Looking On and Looking Again 1

Probably one of the most important literary times in my life is the first time I read a book by myself. The only thing that is different about my first time is that I wasn’t in kindergarten or first grade instead I was in third grade. Most people think that that is sad or embarrassing, but for me it was a huge step in my education that I have never seen before. For once I did it. It’s not like it was something hard at all it was Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.I still remember my reaction when I finished it I started to cry because I was so help that I did it.

Pre-Writing

There has been countless times that reading and writing have annoyed me, the whole fact of not being able to read till the third grade the fact that I could write words that I had zero clue to what they meant and how use them correctly, the fact that on my first day of school I couldn’t find my seat because I didn’t know how to spell my name so I walked around and sat in a bunch of seats till I found one that was empty.

Reading Super and Me

 

In the first part that I highlighted, I liked the openness that he uses by using the meaning of paragraphs in a different way. Also in the second one that is in the picture, he is using a great flexibility technique by jumping from one point back to the main point of his story.

 

For this one I considered the fact that he said that “I refuse to fail” as his showing persistence.

For those few marks that I wrote on the page it helped me keep track of my thoughts and keep me focused.

My First Post

Welcome to my first post, my name is Kenneth Goddu. I am a freshmen at the University of New England. I’m a student that hasn’t had the easiest time going threw school. As years have gone I’ve found out that I have multiple learning disabilities. From dyslexia to short term memory. With school I’ve had to teach myself ways to get through and survive all those years.
