My reading experience
I ask myself a lot of question while I am reading. If I did not undershot part of the book, I go back a reread it. If I ask myself questions while I read, it gets me thinking more about the possible answers and what else could happen in the book. When I get done with a chapter I stop and predict what might happen sometimes.
I think that I comprehend my books really good. I usually understand everything that's going on. If I am not intersested in a book, it is hard for me to follow along with what I am reading. This is alone I have learned a lot about what I like to read. Sometimes it is hard for me to keep track of all the different characters, so I have to go back and refresh my memory.
Write to Learn
I'm writing this letter to you so then maybe we can encounter kids to read more instead of playing their video games. Reading is really good for you. A lot of kids these days don't read that much. Some ways to get them to read is to force them to. You could also just say that reading is another way to find out who you really are as a person. The more you read the more, you might find out about what you like. You could make reading fun, or you could have kids read in groups. Reading in groups is a great way to practice your read aloud skills.
A way to make reading fun is for every book a student reads and finishes; they get something. It doesn't have to be anything big, just something little like some candy, or some pencils. Kids run out of pencils really fast. You don't even have to give them anything; all you would have to say is that the book that you finish counts as a grade in the grade book. Reading a book could maybe even Clint as extra credit for something.
As a teacher, you should also let students pick their own books to read. That is part of what makes reading fun. If you always assign a book for students to read, they don't always like it and can't get into the book. Letting them choose their books and a way for them to explore what they like, and so they kind of have an idea of what kind of books they like. Ya, it is ok for you to have a read aloud book to read to the whole class. Let your students pick, so they can explore everything that is out there and all of the options that they have.
What I like about reading is that every book is its own adventure. You can learn new things from every book that you read. I also like the feeling about getting so wrapped up in a book, that you forget what time it is, and that you can visualize the book so well that it almost seems real. I like to read mystery books. My favorite mystery book is Down with the Shine. It was a very good book, even though none of the stuff that was in that book could never really happen. Sometimes when your reading you just forget about that, and before you know it you are already almost done with that book.
I prefer not to read about real life events. That does not get you imagination going. Real life books to me are kind of boring. I like books that have adventure and could never really be real, but you let yourself think that just for fun. Sometimes, I even read about ghost mystery books, where people think that humans are really doing this stuff, but it is actually just a ghost. I guess you could say that I like horror mystery books. I am not Goth or anything. Just because you like something should not determine who you are. I could like books like that and still like riding my four-wheeler, and shooting my bow. Read what makes you happy. Don't let a book determine who you are.
I have tried yo get people to read the books I like. It sometimes works, and it sometimes doesn't. Not everyone is going to like the same stuff as you, and that is ok. Sometimes, it is good not to be the same as everyone else. Sometimes, it's good to be different and read the stuff that you like. So what if people don't like what you read, you like it and that's all that really matters. You might not like the books that other people reading, and you don't have to read them; it is you choice of what kind of books you read.
