In the fourth grade, our class was assigned a reading assignment that involved a book called, " Lemonade War." Our teacher would read out loud to the class while each of us followed along with our own book.
The fourth grade teachers got together and decided to make the story, " Lemonade War," a real life situation. In the story, there are two groups of kids that competed against each other on who can make the most money during summer time. In school, every fourth grade teacher got together with their class and began discussing their lemonade recipe. Of course our class participated and was thinking of ideas on how to attract more customers.
We then set up a lemonade stand in the main hall of the school. This was a part of our plan to attract more customers. We lost the war in the end, but was recognized with the best tasting lemonade. This memory helped me realize that reading can take you beyond entertainment. It can have a major chain effect and can affect people around you, which will eventually affect the world. Every book, or text can affect your actions depending on how strong your connection is with it.
