Because Bullock's grandmother only received formal education until eighth grade, and his mother a high school graduate, and his father being a high school dropout, he was taught by his grandmother to love learning. By then, through his grandmother's motivation, he was the first in his family to ever graduate from college. In this essay, Bullock shows to us the great motivation that his grandmother has done to him over the past years or, in the years where he was still studying. Him learning to read in a very early age was one of the effects of his grandmother's great perseverance on him towards reading and learning. As he went on with his reading journey, he later on stumbled upon the case of Dr. Sam Sheppard who was all over the papers of Cleveland at that time.
I grew up with my grandma and my aunt. My dad took us with him and my older sister. My grandma was the one who took care of us, but she was old. My grandma can’t read or write.

Nyle is a young who cannot accept losses. Except when the accident in Cookshire took place she had to learn how to let go.

And even before that my mother would read to me every night before I go to sleep. She would have this big book filled with Mother Goose nursery rhymes and would read that along with some other books. When I started to talk my parents taught me the alphabet which seemed pretty easy. It wasn’t long before I could say the entire alphabet on my own. The next thing my parents taught me was to put the letters and sounds together to
The reason I chose this item is because in the book, the main character Pattyn Von Stratten used a journal write down all her troubles because her librarian Ms. Rose told her it would be good for her. The second item I chose was a diaper. I chose this item because all through the main characters life, she had to take care of herself and her six other younger sisters. Her mom and dad always made her change their diapers, feed them, and bathe them. The third item I chose was a ring.
Her emphasis was always math. We would work on adding, subtracting, multiplication, and even division! Now that I look back, I can’t believe I was doing all of that when I was only seven years old!

Lisa’s mother, a teacher in DISD, divorced the father four years ago and intentionally moved to Highland Park for the quality of the school district. Lisa is four foot, four inches and weighs seventy-five pounds. Lisa’s mother believes her daughter is about to go through a growth spurt as her stomach area appears to still have some “belly fat” and her trunk has yet to elongate.

She is a fourth grade student at John S. Armstrong Elementary School in Highland Park and was eager to show us her homework assignments and various worksheets she had recently completed at school.
How I learned to read or write… Trying to remember how I learned to read or write is hard for me. I don’t know why either.

Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened.
Teri Millner English 097 February 19, 2013 Learning to Read From My Mother When I was a child I thought nothing about having to read.

I can’t believe that read the book when I was eleven that is twenty one years ago for me. My mother had given me five dollars when I went into school that day because my school was having a book fair that day. I was not looking forward the book fair because I was not that big into books. I knew that I had to get a book because if I did I could spend my change on candy; otherwise I have to give the money back to my mother. The gym had a bunch of tables set up with cheap plastic table cloths on them.
