Barack Obama

Reading Dreams From My Father from Senator Berry Obama, the unique to represent black people in the Senate I found these expressions to be reminded: "I know that she was the kindest, most generous spirit I ever have known, and that what is best in me I owe to her" Referring to his mom. "Sometimes you can't worry about hurt. Sometimes you worry only about getting where you have to go" Lolo's chatting. But what impressed me the most is this questioning on page 40: -Have you ever seen a man killed? -Yes! -Why was the man killed? -Because he was weak!! Men take advantage of a weakness in other men. The strong man takes the weak man's land. He makes the weak man work in his field. If the weak man's woman is pretty, the strong man will take her. Better be strong! If you can't be strong, be clever, and make peace with someone who's strong. But always better be strong yourself. Always!!

Decoding Skills

Some help along the way with a short vowel, long vowel, and consonant. Thanks to Mary Kay Linge who in her Reading Tutor points:
1. When one vowel appears between two consonants, the vowel usually says its short sound. 2. If there is an e at the end of a word, the vowel sound is long and the e is not pronounced -it's silent. 3. A vowel before a doubled consonant says its short sound. 4. When two vowels appear together, we usually hear only the first vowel, and it says its long sound(or, "When two vowels go walking, the first does the talking") 5. When a word has only one vowel and it appears at the end of the word, it usually says its long sound. 6. When c or g comes immediately before a,o or u we say its hard sound. 7. When c or g comes immediately before e, i, o or y we say its soft sound. However, there are many exceptions to every one of the rules, and learning them will only come with time and reading experience. No wonder so many struggle!

Ghotit - A SpellChecker to English Language Learners and ELL’s.

Have you ever heard of Ghotit? This is a super-spell-checker, ideal for very beginning English Language Learners and ELL’s with learning disabilities (as well as native speakers with challenges).

It has the ability to help sleuth-out words that people are trying to spell — in a much more in depth way than most regular spell-checkers.

Worth to give it a try.
