Top ten things that irritate me:

7.       Using the word “retard” or "retarded”

8.       Waking up early

10.     Not picking up after yourself

I really hate having to repeat myself; it is something that truly irritates me!  When I tell my kids to do something, I expect it to be done.  If I tell them to pick up a toy, I expect they will do it.  If they do not, the toy goes in the trash.  Also, my husband has a awful habit of waiting until I get done with a lengthy discussion on a subject before interjecting, “huh?”  I cannot believe he did not hear any of my comments.  It irritates me that he didn’t stop me earlier to inform me that he did not hear.  Furthermore, it is most irritating in the classroom.  I give clear directives, I speak clearly, and oftentimes I accompany my verbal directions with written ones on paper or the board.  So, why am I constantly asked what to do next or what page we are on?  A way to remedy this irritation in the classroom is to “ask three before you ask me.” Using this motto will help alleviate my having to repeat myself so often.  Overall, repeating myself is a huge pet peeve of mine, and I have come up with a simple solution.

"There Will Come Soft Rains" by Ray Bradbury begins by introducing the reader to a house that cooks, cleans, and takes care of virtually every need that a typical United States family could be assumed to have. The reader enters the text on the morning of August 4, 2026 and follows the house through some of the daily tasks that it performs as it prepares its inhabitants for a day of work and school. At first it is not apparent that anything is wrong, but eventually it becomes clear that the residents of the house are not present and that the house is empty as a vacant hotel room. As the story continues, no direct explanation of the family’s absence is revealed, but the silhouettes of a woman, a man, two children, and their play ball are described as having been burnt in black and charred into one side of the house. The inhabitants are only memories. The house is described as standing amidst the ruins of a city; the leveled urban area is described briefly as emitting a "radioactive glow".

Things to do with one hour of sunshine

by Mrs. McCahan

Step outside to feel the warmth on my face

Take a quick dip in the pool at my mom's place

Study my kids' faces in the natural light

Look at each flower bloom in sight

Run around the yard to feel the rays on my skin

Play a game of tag to see who'd win

Lay in the grass and soak up the rays

Day dream of all the past summer days

A summary of "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury

George and Lydia have it all, and that's exactly what they've given their children. The couple have purchased a Happy Life Home, and they've purchased it for $30,000.00. Just think; it cooks your food; it does your laundry; and it dresses you. Breakfast, lunch, dinner: all you have to do is sit at the table and your every wish is granted. You are washed and bathed, massaged and coddled, rocked like a baby to sleep, and transported through your home without having to move a muscle, all of this luxury and yet, they've even upgraded. At half of the cost of the house, a mere $15,000.00, they've added an enormous nursery. Nothing is too good for their children, or is it?

The nursery can be anything the kids desire. It can be the beach or a fairy tale. They can travel anywhere they'd like, experience anything the world has to offer, and do it all from the enormous addition that was made to their home. The room comes complete with wind, hot sun, and yes, even "odorphonics.": it even smells like the places you visit! You'd never know the places weren't real, or are they real?

The story opens with Lydia drawing her husband into a conversation about their children. The nursery has become her children’s best friend! She is visibly worried that they are spending far too much time in the nursery, that the places they're visiting aren't suitable, and that the fact they have chosen the African Veldt as their escape of choice is alarming. Her children are little criminals!

She wants her husband to call the psychologist for her children, but she wants him to call the psychologist for the house too! The "happy home" that they talk to, the home that talks back, that they thank for its every service; the home that was supposed to make their lives perfect, it isn't perfect, and she's crying. She wants to leave; she feels as if she's become unimportant, that she's not needed. She's no longer the caregiver, no longer a wife, no longer a mother, and she isn't wrong to worry!

In “Marionettes, Inc.” by Ray Bradbury there are a few different techniques used to understand the story. First, the reader can look at various literary techniques, like imagery. Bradbury describes Nettie a lot. Another technique is making inferences; a reader can guess about character and plot based on the story. I thought Smith would follow his friend’s example and get a robot too. Finally, a good reader makes predictions about what will happen next. I predicted Nettie was a robot. In conclusion, there are some key techniques that readers use to understand a story.


My name is mrs mccahan mick cack in 8 21 14 1 6 speaking and listening

When reading Ray Bradbury’s stories the reader can see that he has a his unique writing style; in the story “The Pedestrian,” his style is clear. First of all, the story is in the science fiction genre. Another aspect of his style is his characters are often lonely and different from everyone else, like Leonard Mead. Thirdly, he uses imagery a lot to describe setting and character. Therefore, Bradbury’s style is revealed in this story.

Openers/ attention getters/ways to “hook” a reader

1. My trip to the emergency room was the best day ever!

2.  Cautious, studious, and boring are three words I would never use to describe myself.

3.  My mom was in her room crying. My little sister was sitting at the foot of the bed. I heard a car speeding away out front.

4.  My dad always says, "don't drop your arm when you bat."

5.  How could the birth of twins negatively affect your life?


My name is mrs mccahan mick cack in 8 21 14 1 6 speaking and listening

Cautious, studious, and boring are three words I would never use to describe myself. I am a risk taker. My key events that have shaped me have been very exciting. I am not a great student, and certain choices I have made have proven that. Furthermore, the pivotal person in my life has made my first thirteen years a blast! Certain moments, choices, and my dad have affected the person I am today.

Conclusion

Transition + restate thesis (NOT EXACT SAME WORDS)

Review body paragraph topics in 2-3 sentences

Poignant concluding sentence: Connect somehow to the attention getter.

Furthermore, my life has been shaped by moments, choices, and my mom. Defining moments have affected me positively. Two distinct choices made for me have impacted my life. Finally, my mom has always helped me when I needed it the most. That trip to the emergency room sure was a great day for me and my family!


My name is mrs mccahan mick cack in 8 21 14 1 6 speaking and listening

Overall, my short life has been shaped by key events, decisions, and one special woman. A few defining moments have made me more responsible and kind. My two important decisions have shaped me too. Finally my mom is a very influential figure in my life. Even though my life was altered by a tragic event that left me in the emergency room, life is full of moments like this, and I have to learn from them.

Moments, Choices, and Mom

My trip to the emergency room was the best day ever! I had a concussion and twenty

in my forehead stitches when I was eight years old; I had to be homebound from school for three

weeks. This experience helped me become a better student. In addition to this defining event, I

had two more events that shaped who I have become. I also made some tough choices. Finally, I

have one pivotal person in my life: my mom. Defining moments, crucial choices, and a pivotal

person have greatly affected who I have become!

Second, get your vocabulary list out. Record three of the words, parts of speech, and definitions in your notebook. Pick three "good words;" that is, be sure to pick the three words you may use again someday in your life.

If your vocabulary list is missing anything, work on it now. Tomorrow the list will be graded. If there are words that are simplistic, unacceptable, or ones you couldn't find in the dictionary, replace them with better words.
