Mrs. Siestke Galama Noshie
Dear Mrs. Noshie:
I want there to be no more reading log. It is not useful in my opinion. Can’t the teacher give us a reading test instead of that boring reading log? It is better for me and you if we don’t get one. There are several reasons why, but I will give you three.
First of all, we have after-school activities. There will be no time left for a reading log. The whole entire class would prefer if you would stop giving a reading log. Sometimes we have a problem or a celebration. The extra time left is usually used for the homework not a reading log. With me, the reading log takes a lot more than one minute, l’m not one of those people that rush through their work; I take at least five minutes. I need time for after-school activities and family time.
In addition, it is a waste of my precious time. I am in FIFTH GRADE. I have a lot more homework, especially since I am in regular Arabic. Homework comes before reading log. It is so funny that I go to school to learn, then I come back home to learn! Instead of wasting my time doing a reading log, I could spend the time doing something useful.
All of my reading grades go down because of a reading log. Sometimes, I forget to do it, and my grade goes down. There are a lot of things that come before a reading log. Why can’t that time go for family?
I also have suggestions. Instead, you can ask us to give you the reading log on Friday only, and you give it back on Monday. Wouldn’t a reading test be easier for me and you? I would appreciate it if you think about this letter and the suggestions I gave you.
