In the preschool, I learned the alphabet and how to write different letters by tracing over them. Soon, I was able to write my own name. But that was all I learned in preschool. On the first day of kindergarten, the teacher handed me a laminated sheet of paper. It had words on it, most of them, I couldn’t read.
After we completed the guided reading section we worked with words. During our working with words lesson, Reid worked on both phonics and sight words skills. For phonics, we used clips cards and sorting as our main strategies. With these two strategies, we changed them around to meet the needs of the student. We used sorting for r-controlled vowels, identifying lowercase ‘b’ and ‘d’, and sorting vowel sounds.
I 've learned that reading and writing can take me any where I want it to go. I can explore my mind to go anywhere by imagination, by reading and writing. However,My reading and writing experience since I was a kid until now I still having a difficulty. When I was 3 years old my mom started me to learn how to read and write. At first, I 'm having a difficulty to read and write but my mom tried her best to taught me.
As I moved on to high school, my teacher Mr. Hutchins understood more of my style than any other person in the class. Mr. Hutchins understood my abstract drawings and helped me to develop techniques to make me at stick out more. I remember when working on an abstract painting of the fall time in West Virginia, Mr. Hutchins noticed I had a pattern in my piece and helped me to tear apart the pattern. He added more random strokes to take apart the patterns and then I tried to do the same. He helped to make my work pop out more with his ideas.
Would memorization of poems or paragraphs of prose assist retention, and if so, should teachers require students to memorize and recite poetry? Many educators and professors memorized poetry in their educations, but “because it has always been taught” is not enough justification. The act of memorization is beneficial for certain contexts and for the brain. In her article, Lisa Van Gemert said memorization helps people learn English syntax and widen their vocabularies, and she included links to resources like Poetry 180 for the reader to begin memorizing! Memorizing more and more information creates new neural pathways and assists in neural plasticity.
Watching my new students struggle on grade levels assessments motivated me to pursue literacy education at a graduate level. My interest in literacy education ultimately derives from my goal to teach highly effective instruction to students while considering their diverse

Writing is like a way for me to get all those possibilities, scenarios, ideas, and what if questions down on paper because it’s a way for me to express myself permanently. Before I took this writing course, I felt writing was not necessary for my education. In my writing 200 class, I have learned how to fix run on sentences, comma splices, fragments, and improve my grammar. I have improved my writing significantly, but I still have some work to do. I have been working on my writing and know I am ready to succeed at the next level because in 200 I learned how to proper use of transitions, and correct placement of commas.
I was fortunate enough to see what a difference it was to be literate, and not to be, so when I was able to see how many more opportunities reading and writing could give me, I threw myself into trying every way that I could to be the best. If I wanted something, then I couldn’t expect for it to be handed to me. This is why my debate career went hand-to-hand with my writing journey. Not only was I working tirelessly on reading every news article I could about current topics, but I was analysing them and finding their mistakes, as well as my own. I would construct arguments from my findings and go head to head with other students who were doing the same exact thing.
I used to have terrible handwriting. In my life, my handwriting has changed several different times due to the criticism of several different teachers. But when I first started to learn how to write is something I could never forget. I overcame the obstacle of learning how to write correctly, got better at writing, and realized that I couldn’t stop since then.

I did not know in-text citations were so important until I took this class. It was great to understand the different types of plagiarism and different techniques to avoid plagiarizing. My weakest writing assets would have to be coming up with a great introduction and building my body so it runs smoothly. I had and am having trouble with
Before I started school my mother would always read me books in Spanish I didn't know how to read or write during that time I was only 2 years old. When I started preschool that’s where I started to learn how to read and write. I don’t really remember much but what I do remember was that the first thing I learned how to write was my name. It was difficult learning how to write. My words would be squiggly but what else would you expect a preschooler writing to look like, it was a fun time being able to learn how to write.
My Journey to Literacy Have you ever reflected on how you became the literary genius that you are? This is my story or should I say journey to literacy. My trek starts with my Mom reading to me as soon as I came out of the womb. She read to me from childhood well into my grade school years. Writing started with breakfast everyday as I copied words from cereal boxes.
