My Life as a Reader
By: Phin Kelly, Grade 5
Rockport Elementary School
Ever since I can remember, my dad read to me and my younger siblings. I wanted to know what the letter and sounds meant. By the time I was 4 1/2 or 5 years old, I could read.
One time, my mom had a meeting with a friend and I pulled out Green Eggs and Ham, by Dr. Seuss and I surprised myself by reading 75% of the words (such as car or egg).
I now love reading and usually stay up until 11:00 pm reading big novels such as
Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan or Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland.
"Look I didn't want to be a half-blood. If you're reading this,
I might be one. My advice is: Close this book right now. "
