For school I had an assignment to write my reading autobiography and answer questions about how I feel about reading. This is what I wrote.
My mom and my mommom taught me how to read before I went to school. They read aloud to me while I sat on their laps. I learned to read more in preschool and kindergarten from my teachers. One of my favorite books was Good Night Moon. Another was Peppermint, which is about a cat that didn’t have any people to be with. I liked that book because I like cats. I still like to read about animals but now I read nonfiction books about them.
My whole family reads for enjoyment. We really like books. My mom and mommom read for fun. My dad likes to browse books and he likes old books and fairy tales the best. He even sells old books. I mostly read because it helps me to find facts and learn, which is why I read nonfiction. I will probably still read the same types of books I do now when I am older because the nonfiction books I read are mostly for grownups.
I like to read when it is nonfiction, which I prefer better than fiction. So when I read fiction it is because I have to for school. I don’t struggle when I read because I mostly read in my head and it makes sense.
I find good books when we go to the library as a family, and also my dad gives me a lot of books. He finds them from his book business and I get all sorts about animals, but also history like the presidents.
I look for books about gardening and birds too. My dad gave me a set of books by his favorite fairy tale author who is Ruth Manning-Sanders. She writes the best fairy tale books.
Books are the best thing I can ever ask for. In fact, right now I have so many that they don’t fit on my bookshelves.
At my house on the deck is a chipmunk that lives underneath the deck. The chipmunk always comes out and teases my two cats named Mr.Bill and Huggles.
Then on Monday August 22 I went out side on the deck and laid some nuts out where the chipmunk is so he could have a snack. Then a little while after I laid the nuts out for the chipmunk I saw him and his friend the squirrel and they were going nuts over nuts.
Then Tuesday August 23 I did the same thing again. Then at the same time they both came back to eat the last of the nuts from the bag of nuts that we got at the store.
I said it was like having A.F.V at home but with no commercials.
I made 4-H projects and the projects were my wildlife scrapbook, a bird watching poster with my birdhouse that I brought with my own money, a garden poster with my aloe plant that I rescued from school.
Then I set up my projects in the categories that they were supposed to be in. Then Thursday August 11 we dropped the projects off and then we went to see the alpacas get judged.
Then on Saturday August 13 my mom and dad and I went back and saw how wonderful my projects did. We found out that all of my projects won gold ribbons. Then on Sunday August 14 my mom and dad went to pick up my projects from the 4-h fair at 4:15 in the afternoon.
When I was eating breakfast one day I saw a squirrel that was jumping up to the black pole that has a light on it and then he went to my mommom’s hanging plant and then he leaned over to my bird feeder that I made at 4-h and started eating the bird seed from my bird feeder. Then my mommom and I decided to move her hanging plant some where else because the squirrel was ruining the plant because he kept geting on it to get the bird seed. Then the squirrel got mad and decided to try to figure at a way to get to the other bird feeder that I have at my house and of course he made it.
So we decided to go to the store and buy him some nuts to eat instead.
I just found at something cool about today! The thing that I learned was that today is Vincent Van Gogh’s birthday and he would be 158 today. Vincent Van Gogh is the theme of my room because he is my favorite artist.
This is a picture of Vincent Van Gogh’s bedroom that he painted.
I went to the Wolf Sanctuary Of PA with my 4-H group earlier this year. I really liked the Wolf Sanctuary because I loved learning about the wolves and how they act and what happens when you mix a dog and a wolf together.
I just filled my piggy bank for the S.P.C.A to help the animals there and then I decided to help homeless people because the people that are homeless need all the help they can get. The group I am going to help is on the link in this post.
