5. What is the first book you ever read?

  1. Dear Mr.Moore and Ms. V,

    I don't really enjoy reading but, if it was shared reading in school or math were I had to read something I would try to read as good and perfect as I can. But just because i'm a pretty good reader doesn't mean I'm as good and fluent as the other people in advance reading. There is a couple people that are better the me in advanced reading
    but, I'm still not as good as my brothers and sister that already went through fifth grade.

  2. Dear Mr.Moore & Ms.V,

    I find novels very interesting. I like to read "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "A Dogs Journey".I read both of the series over the summer. I am still reading "A Dog's Journey". I can't say that I haven't seen my family read a book but I don't pay attention to the tittles. I don't know if I'm a good writer or a bad one. I hope they come out with another "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" or "A Dog's Journey". "A Dog"s Journey" is 333 pages long if you didn't know. I think that if you can read "A Dogs Journey" then you are a good reader.
    "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" has 217 pages, but "A Dog's Journey" has 333 pages as I said in the last paragraph. So "A Dog's Journey" is a bigger book than "Diary of a Wimpy Kid". I think that "A Dog's Journey" is about 4 centimeters thick and "Dairy of a Wimpy Kid is about half that ( 2 centimeters thick ) . Anyway I think that those books can be used with dominoes. The books could make a staircase because there so thick.

    Hope this was enough,
    Zachary Hart :]

    I love reading books. I especially like magic and adventure. I have read a lot of "Magic Tree House" books and I also love reading "Rainbow Fairies" books. My favorite comic book series is "Princess Candy". My goal for reading is to go to a higher level in reading. My other goal is to read more novels and try different books. I think reading is awesome.

  4. Dear Mr. Moore and Mrs. V,

    I like to read, but not that much. I like mysteries and action books. My goal in reading is to read a book that is more than 500 pages long. I read a lot of books over the summer. My favorite book was "The Dark Night Rises." Its about Batman. I'd like to get better at reading longer books. I've never read a book on an i Pad or i Pod. Reading is one of my hobbies. That is my life as a reader.

  13. Dear Miss.V and Mr.Moore,

    I think that mystery story's but it has to be a ghost story or a story where some one died and some one else has to solve who did the crime. I also like action story's like a battle of the civil war or monsters are on the earth attacking every one. I think that my favorite book was "Goosebumps The Werewolf of Swamp fever. Something that someone read to me was the "Westing Game " at first though I thought it was a boring book but I ended up liking it. I honestly don't remember what was the first book I ever read. This summer I read the book "Ghost stories" about a girl who can find and see ghost. My favorite comic book is the "Cow Wonder" where a cow tries to save the world from disgusting Hamburgers. I do not like to read on any electronics except tv and computers. My goal as a reader is to become the very best I can the fastest and highest level reader that I can become. I am probably good with words and knowing how to spell them. I would like to get better at how fast I can read. I usually see my brother reading. He reads things like black hawk down and basic training. He would like to become a pare rescue man.

    Sincerely,
    Chris

How I describe myself as a reader is I'm a fluent reader and reads steady.The other question was that What do you love to read. I like to read Diary of a Wimpy kid,I like to read this book because it's funny to read and it's not to easy or not to hard to read it's just right.This question was Whats your favorite book? My favorite book is 39 clues. 39 clues is my favorite book because it's mystery and it has a lot of juicy words. The other question was what are your goals as a reader . My goals are to read better books, go 20 mins. without stopping. The next question was what are you good at as a reader.I'm good at being fluent and consistent. the other question was what would you like to get better at as a reader. I would like to get better at not getting distracted. This was my paragraph and answer for Mr.Moore and Ms.Vander Velde thanks!

  20. Dear Ms.V and Mr.Moore,

    I like to read on a computer, tablet, or on a iPad. I mostly like to read mystery books for often they get exiting and mysterious that what I like about them. My goal as a reader is to get above my level and be able to read hard words like sixth grade words. Over the summer I did not read that much but I did read one good mystery book that is called the Westing Game its a very good book that I liked. I see my dad read the bible most of the times and my older brother reads football books. What am good as a reader that am I read really good and my fluency is really good also. I don't read comic book so I do not have a favorite comic book. I do not remember the first time I read a book but I think it was about foods.

  21. Dear Ms.V and Mr.Moore,

    I like to read sometimes when I have nothing to do. Other than just
    going on the internet and doing other school things. As a reader, I like 2 types of books mostly. I like mysteries and since. One of my favorite books are "Box Car Children". I have been reading that book sense 1st grade. My teacher was reading that book and I started to like it and I just started reading it when I found them in the classroom. When I there was read a loud then there was a lot of books that were the best.
    But, the book that is the best is "Box Car Children". Over the summer I mostly read "Box Car Children". I read a lot of magazines and the ones that I like is the "Pop Star" and I like then a lot. I go on my laptop,I Pod or the net books that I have at school to read books sometimes other than just going to find a book that I want to read. I can go on one of those. I have some goals that I have with reading. But, one of then is to be more fluent with my reading. When I read I'm not fluent.
    I am not that clear. I see a lot of books that my family reads. My dad reads Springkston King books. My mom just reads a lot of random books. Brother reads cor books and my sister whatever is easy. That is mostly everything that is me as a reader. Thank you for reading!

    I love to read the book that is called boxcar children. The favorite book I love to have are lots of Boxcar Children books because I like mystery books so that's why I like it and it is interesting. The best book someone ever read to me was Danny the Champion of the world. The first thing I ever read was when I was five and that thing I read was Power Rangers. When I was in Florida, Disney world when I was bored I read the signs and the other stuff with words. My favorite comic book is Garfield because he is funny and he kicks Odie off the table. My family sometimes reads to us but my brother mostly ask them to read us books or I have to read to him.

    I think I'm a grade level reader. My favorite book is the Darwen Awards and I love it. And my favorite book someone has read to me was Were the Red Fern Grows in forth grade from Miss,Crowley which is the best story in the world, in my opinion. I like reading more on screens more than books because I can just stop where I was. For my goals of a reader I've been wanting to get above grade level if i'm not. I don't really see my family read too much but they do read.

  28. Dear Mr. Moore and Ms. Vander Velde. My favorite comic was Deadpool volume 1. I also love to read The Hunger Games series. I prefer to read paper books so if your Kindle breaks you cant continue,but if you have a paper book you wont have to worry about that. I'm good at reading and thinking over what has happened in the story. Another book series I enjoy is the Diary of the Wimpy Kid.One of my goals in writing is to be able to write about what I read. The first book i ever read was jamboree. It was about a bear and a 9 year old boy love fruit and they visit many different biomes based on different types of fruit. I would like to get better at reading out loud to a group of people. I stutter when I read because I get nervous reading aloud. -Sincerely Jaylon

    I kind of do like reading books and kind of not. I only like reading animaI books and nothing else. I only have one book I love to read and it's called "Wolf Brother" by Michelle Paver. Wolf Brother is about 1 boy 12 years old and he travils with a wolf and defeat a evil who stalked the land. The bestest book someone has readed to me was "Paint the wind" by Pam Munoz Ryan. It was so great because it was a bed time story.

  36. Dear Ms V and Mr Moore,

    I really like to read books a lot because they make me think of being in the book. I really like action books more I think about fighting bad guys and saving the world. When I grow up I want to write books about action laughter and comic books. Back then when I was 3 my mom read me a book every night before I went to sleep she read me the book because I couldn't go to sleep. I have to read so I can keep my grade up and not down. my parents tell me to keep my grades up if they go down they get mad so I rather keep on reading.

    As a reader I enjoy reading chapter books about mysteries. The first book I read was called '' The mystery of the missing painting''. I prefer reading books from the computer because it is easier for me to read. I would like to get better by being at a higher level for reading. One of my goals as a reader is to get better at reading. One of the things I am good as a reader is picking a good book.

    as a reader I would like to get better at pronaucing some words in some books that are difficult to me. That would help me a lot because sometimes I get stuck on words that I don't know. My favorite books would be about comedy and scary books becuase I like books that make me laugh and scary because I to know about haunted houses. Sometimes I like to read magazines about sports like football. Like for example sometimes something happens to football players that you don't know about.

    I started reading because I wanted to be smarted. I still read at home for twenty minutes. My favorite book is summer of the monkeys and its a chapter book. It was an amazing book. I use to hate reading because it was boring but now its amazing. Sometimes I read comic books. When I read if I don't know a word I spell it or skip it and when i'm done I go back and read it again. My mom when I forget to read my mom reminds me because she wants me to get smarter. Over the summer I read a lot of books and I have a little closet full of books. Some are chapter books and others are normal books.

    Hi I'm Amra my reading is pretty good sometimes i make mistakes and sometimes i don't but when i read harder and harder books it is hard for me to read so i try to read harder books and when the teacher tells me to think and when I'm thinking but i can't that's the problem i have but in the easier books i can think about the book so I'm going to learn more and more to think about the book and that's why the kids are in school to learn and know how to write and spell and count and to learn more stuff in school so they can grades up and get higher scores and that's about me.

  47. Dear Mr. Moore and Ms. Vander Velde,

    I describe myself as an active reader. Meaning I love to read all the time. I love to read Jules Verns long long juicy books. Especially "The Mysterious Island". If someone asks me if I have a favorite book, I`ll usually say no because when I am reading a book I`m glued to it, and I`ll say that`s my favorite right there but then I say that about the next and the next. So I`m basicly right and wrong about every book.Thank you for reading my comment.Bye!

  58. Hi East Dragon Den students and teacher,

    This is Mr. Rodriguez. I am a 5th grade teacher in Los Angeles California. BTW, You guys have an awesome blog. This past Saturday I was going to have a very long day. I needed to commute into the city for a teacher conference. This means I had a two hour bus ride there and two hour bus ride back. As I contemplated, what should I read. I decided to challenge myself. There is a short book my wife bought this Summer. It is called "Manuscript Found in Accra" by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho. I decided to read the whole book! I figured at about 190 pages I could do it. It was a wonderful experience. I was able to go into my book and live through the voice of the author. This book is written in fictional narrative stye. As a short summary it is about a city, Jerusalem about 1,000 years ago when it is about to be invaded. The townspeople gather together to listen to a leader called the Copt. They ask him for advice and what to expect in their future. I recommend this book for the older youth and adults. There are parts that teachers can share with their 5th grade students. Especially the part of asking for advice and realizing that we are already doing what we are supposed to be doing. That we share experiences with others doesn't matter where you are. Best of luck with the new school year!
