- Hello world! on
Being as a mom of Waverly, she would really take great responsibilities towards Waverly. She takes care of her and showing some positive aspects of being a mom. However, to the most part, Waverly’s mom has a greater negative personality and has impact on Waverly. She is very strict and demanding to Waverly among the children, and somewhat being mean to her. Eventually she would always be the person who feel a sense of triumph and becoming arrogant and proud to show off Waverly to the society as Waverly win the champion of the chess game.
Firstly, Waverly’s mom is properly humble according to Chinese custom, saying that Waverly’s winning is just luck. However, after Waverly starts to win more tournaments and becomes a national chess champion, Waverly’s mom starts to show Waverly off to others in public. According to the short story, it says that “At the next tournament, I won again, but it was my mother who wore the triumphant grin.” (Page 4). Also in the book, there is a quote that is: “my mother would proudly walk with me, visiting many shops, buying very little. ‘This my daughter Waverly Jong,’ she said to whoever looked her way.” (Page 5) Therefore, these two points showed that Waverly’s mom is taking others success into their joy.
Secondly, Waverly’s mom imposes strict Chinese rules on her Chinese-American children. Waverly is relegated to doing chores, while her brothers are free to pursue their interests. A great connection to this is from all the Chinese parents. They are normally very strict to their children both because they want their children to be talented. Which is similar to Waverly’s mom. They would tend to show off their kid when they did something very ambitious and is a strong accomplishment. In the story, Waverly’s mom became very strict to Waverly and as she wins chess games, her mom brag about her skills and the ability to play chess like a pro.
All in all, Waverly’s mom has a bit of positive personality and sometimes she takes great care on Waverly. However, the majority of times she was being left out and her mom take proud of her and showing off her skill. Therefore, to the most part, Waverly’s mom is a mom who had negative personality more than positive.
I would like to improve on my writing skills, which is my toughest aspect. I would let readers understand what I am writing. I would also like to read a book wisely, so reading is something I also want to excavate more. Furthermore, because I approach more in English, I didn’t have much time to learn Social Studies. Therefore, I would learn these aspects so that next time I would have something to answer during a Social Studies class.
I will face the challenge of patience, since to learn how to write in an effective way, it is not an easy process. It is time consuming as well. In order to accomplish it, I believe progresses are important. Also, Social Studies sometimes are a bit hard to achieve the skill due to being a beginner of learning all knowledge.
The best part of my first week of school was making some other new student friend. The new kids are also being friendly. Also, we can go to different places only except humanities, science and math. Even P.E we would go to different teachers.
During the first week, I didn’t really enjoy how classes organized. Some classes I may got lost where I go. In 6th grade, I always follow a bunch of other students talking on the path. Going individually never happens in 6th grade. I had nobody to talk to during P.E times, nobody to talk to when I walk to my enrichment. this year no friends are with me for the same enrichment.
During EAL time, I want to focus on improving my reading abilities and grammar skills, because two weeks ago, I was testing TOEFL Junior when my score came out, it appeared that reading comprehension and verbal questions came in the lowest score. I would strong recommend Mr.Jason give me much harder level reading tests, and would like Mr.Jason teach me more vocabulary.
I would like to share my Newsela articlehttps://newsela.com/read/elem-caring-for-pets/id/26518/, because it teaches you that adults and children are all involved in the pet caring, it shows that people under our ages care animals very much.
