What is a text-to-self connection?
Miss Qian’s text-to-self connections to “Miss Nelson is Missing!”
This story reminds me of my favorite history teacher in middle school. He is a good teacher, kind and caring. I liked him very much because he always shared beautiful pictures with us and he told us interesting stories in Chinese history. That is the time I decided that one day I wanted to become a nice teacher just like him.
Miss Viola Swamp in the story reminds me of a teacher when I was in 9 th grade. She was an awful math teacher. I did not like her because she made us do a lot of homework and gave us bad grades all the time. She never smiled to the students and always dressed in black. She killed my interests in learning math.
Here are some sentence starters to help you.
1). This story reminds me of a teacher when I was in _______ grade.
2). He/She was a good/bad teacher.
3). I liked/ did not like the teacher because_______________________.
