Wonder Wednesday - The Love of Reading (Part Seven)
*This is the seventh of an on-going series I'm going to post each Wednesday.
*I love posting on Wednesdays because it is all about the WONDERS of books, reading, and all that comes with it.
*Each student filled out a reading survey with six questions to respond to.
*I will post their thoughts here on Wednesdays throughout the summer.
*One of my most favorite things to do as an educator is to get feedback from my students.
*Here is a look at a couple of my students' responses from the survey I gave...
STUDENT #1 -Marissa
Before I was in fourth grade I thought that reading was exciting because visualizing was my key and you can learn many new things.
Now that I'm almost done with fourth grade I think that reading is even more exciting because learning new words helps me understand more and visualize more.
This year I learned that as I reader I prefer history type books and mythology because I'm reading a series called Goddess Girls and I really like it.
To me reading is exciting and an opportunity to learn new things because reading helps me learn a lot of new things.
As a reader I'm most proud of being able to read more challenging books because reading more challenging books seems more fun and I like the challenge.
The best thing about reading is learning new things because learning new things makes you smarter and I want to be as smart as I can.
STUDENT #2 -Abdiwahid
Before I was in fourth grade I thought that reading was horrible because I never use to read.
Now that I'm almost done with fourth grade I think that reading is amazing because I started to actually read books this year and learned that there are great books.
This year I learned that as I reader I read better when I'm in a silent area because I can concentrate better and not get distracted.
To me reading is amazing because I love the books that I read and enjoyed the stories in them.
As a reader I'm most proud reading the Alex Rider Series because I saw lots of kids reading it and Mr. Andrus said I might enjoy it and I really did. I wish there were more in the series.
The best thing about reading is reading a great story because I forget my own life and get to read about other people.
