Strategies to Nurture a Love of Reading in Primary Students I was a primary classroom teacher and it was very important for me to nurture a love of reading in my students. I am a mother and I continued to nurture this love of reading with my children at home. I would like to share some strategies that have helped me to nurture a love of reading in my students and my own children: Reading Reflections: Students especially primary ones will only read if they enjoy it and have a positive experience or if they can make positive connections to the story they are reading. It is imperative that primary students think and talk about their experience while reading to motivate them to read more. Children will only do things that they enjoy doing.
Writing allowed me to be able to release all of my inner thoughts on to a piece of paper. Starting at a young age, I loved writing. I loved that writing allowed me to be able to put all the feelings and thoughts that were flowing through my head onto a piece of paper. Growing up, my love for writing began to fade. All this love that once appeared in my writing, gone.
Even the worm can fell contentment, and the cherub stands before God! Gladly, like the heavenly bodies which he set on their courses through the splendour of the firmament; thus, brothers, you should run your race, as a hero going to conquest. You millions, I embrace you. This kiss is for all the world! Brothers, above the starry canopy there must dwell a loving Father.
The Bottom Line True. There are other programs, which teach children of all ages to read. However, based on all the information contained in the course and the very affordable price that Sarah Shepard offers, we truly believe “Reading Head Start” is worth checking out. This is no secret that reading at an early age could help your child become successful later in life, and you can find many articles and studies online that will confirm this. The Reading Head Start system will not only help you achieve this goal, but it will also allow you doing so in a fun and enjoyable way.
Throughout my academic career, I have read many books of all genres to get a feel of the literary world and to enhance my reading skills. Ever since I was a young girl, I recall always loving to read any book that I came across and spending my free time doing so. As I got older, my interest slightly decreased but I still enjoy reading fine pieces of literature. I have always preferred to read over write because there’s so much more to learn from other people’s experiences and getting to relate to it as I get deeper into a book. The main challenges I have faced in my literacy journey is being able to express my full thoughts when I write.
(Silvey, P23 – Like Atticus Finch: dignified and reasonable and wise.) Because both books share the same themes of morality, ethics, and scapegoating, Silvey referenced To Kill a Mockingbird quite early in Jasper Jones to foreshadow the exploration of the shared themes. For readers that have read To Kill a Mockingbird might see the intended foreshadowing. In the novel, Jasper is the scapegoat. He is blamed for every disastrous event in Corrigan, even by the police without evidence.
The roles of English Literature in the language curriculum at schools are inevitably vital to the students. Most of the teachers are well aware of the importance of the Literature teaching to the students due to its help in broadening the students’ perspective about the beautiful content of English as a language and as a learning subject. Based on the study, it was found that teacher’s guidance inside and outside classrooms is very important to attract the students’ attention and interest to learn the subject. Learning Literature is in fact encourages students to read more and by doing so they will unconsciously increase their vocabulary.

Literature is more than just a creative means to utilise language. It is the key that unlocks many doors, the deterrent against ignorance and above all, a greater part of my life. It offers people the fortune to travel and embrace infinite worlds, otherwise lost or invented, through literary texts and digital media platforms. What was reverence for the written word has evolved to a passionate appreciation for all things creative with language to this day. I have always been fond of reading and writing; growing up with a father who was the very definition of a bibliophile, I was exposed to the joys of reading at a young age; browsing through libraries and bookstores became a favourite pastime.
Decoding the meaning in a literary text with the help of a literary device or a literary theory will take the reader to the next level of understanding. The readers get the privilege of incorporating their own experiences and thoughts and reach a new level of understanding which fill them with delight. The texts written not only give recreation to the readers but also educate them. The readers thoughts are elevated, their ideas are refined, their life style is re-modified and their outlook is widened by reading literature. Various attempts have been made to define literature.
Literature is a primary material of teaching a target language, providing authentic and real contexts of communicative situations. It also provides the pleasure of learning a new language with and through interesting stories. Students can extend their knowledge and experience of the world by interacting through literature. A language teacher could encourage students to make discourses in literature to extract their own meanings, bringing their experiences into play.
