Southside Grade 4


Mrs. Carmichael




Imagine, you’re at school just waiting for your favorite subject to pop in your head. Then, kaboom you know what subject is your favorite -Reading. Well, my name is Sara and that’s what it was like for me.

I chose reading because books take me on Magical Adventures that I could have never done just watching TV. I also like it because we get to do journal entries and do book talks. But when I read, it’s like I’m trapped inside my own world; nobody can get in or out.

I would have never experienced reading like this if Mrs. Carmichael wasn’t my teacher. It wouldn’t have been the same because she does all these things that have pushed me to try new things. For example the thing that pushed me was the book talks. I hated getting up in front of the class and reciting my book talk about the protagonist and how their personality changed from being to end. However, doing this helped me get over my fears and become an even better reader.

If we didn’t have books, I wouldn’t know what to do without them. That is why reading is my favorite subject. I hope it can be yours too.
