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.
Everyone that goes to Lodi High School has heard of the class PSR. When I decided to take the class I just thought it would be a fun class that you just could goof off in and leave school for a block, but once I got to the class I learned that it was much more than that. It was a class that gave you the opportunity to learn in a different way than just sitting in a classroom. I would like to discuss the assignment I did for my PSR project, how me being in my PSR classrooms helped the teachers and the positives and negatives of PSR. For my PSR assignment I went to the elementary school and helped Mrs. Volks class and Mr. Wallace's class.
The classroom layout created a stress-free atmosphere in which the children would be comfortable while they learned. There was a guided reading center, computer center, small group area, writing center, spelling center, science center, and library center. What worked or was effective? The teacher allows the students to initiate dialogue with each other which has increased their eagerness to speak more frequently. She also employed oral language assessments from a research based program Let’s Talk About It: Oral Language, Reading, and Writing to recognize their particular oral language necessities.
This notion is so obvious that I’m ashamed to say I had let it take a backseat in my teaching. However, during the course this was a “light bulb” moment for me, and I have since then endeavored to put it into practice each day that I am with students. Focusing on the things that kids are doing right helps steer the rest of the class in the direction to also do what is right. For example, I recently utilized this concept in a music classroom where I was teaching. The lesson that day presented itself as a setup for complete chaos.
She instilled in me the importance of reading at an early age by making me complete all reading assignments and homework before anything else. After my classmates and I became more advanced in our literary skills, Mrs. Heard began sending us home with about five books to read. Once school was out, I would go straight home and sit at my desk to read my books, complete any other homework, and enjoy a snack during the process, a great routine I still complete to this day. This was so much fun to me, and it stayed that way until my neighbors, Katelyn and Keriann Hanson, came over to play. Once I heard their knocks on the door, I would immediately put up my books and go put on my shoes to go play.
I have always liked to know why things happen, and then, I love explain those things to someone, teach him. When I was younger, I used to pretend to be the teacher while playing with my little sister; I liked giving her homework, ask her questions, tests, teach her different stuffs. Since I was little I have felt attracted to educate, transmit my knowledge to others, but first it is necessary learn, and then teach. My school really helped with that, with its educational model Gourdieff, I developed love for learning new things, from different areas, I gained motivation for knowledge. When I graduated from school, I was awarded as the “Etievan spirit”, prize that reflect my personality; respectful, honest and also confirms my love for learn.
I’m so excited during today class because teacher is asking our dream. Dream, everyone have a dream or more than one. The teacher opened her book and started calling out names alphabetically: “Ken?” “I want to become a doctor who can help and save many patient’s life just like my father.” “That 's very nice, Ken. Very, very nice indeed.” Ken, he is my desk-mate. I always kept on eyes on him because I loved him for his goodness, his smart looking and his popularity.
I 've been a lucky child: my sister teached me how to read at the age of three and I had plenty to pick and learn from my parent 's house 's bookshelves. Since then, I literally felt the urge to read everything I could get my hands on: the world was such a dark, misterious place to me, but everything I read shed a light on it. I guess I could be defined hungry: not as a human with an appetite, but as a voracious beast. As soon as primary school begun for me, I realized that I wouldn 't be allowed anymore to let my curiosity wander wherever it wanted; furthermore, I was forced to keep a slower pace: a textbook was meant to be read for an entire year, while I used to read it in a few days, just because I was bored. Because of that I immediately lost interest in school, and felt from the beginning that school and education were two different worlds.
My earliest memories about science teachers are probably just getting into middle school around the 6th grade. I remember having a crazy science teacher do would sprinkle us with magic fairy dust to help us learn better but, my class going from elementary school to middle school was a big deal for our age group and she was still treating us like children when, in reality, we felt cool and much older to actually be up in the middle school. I remember the whole class often goofing around the whole time because we felt like the teacher made us feel young and we acted out for her treating us that way. The only thing I remember is how much this science teacher loved wolves and watching a live recording of a mother and baby eagles. I think I don’t remember much from this class because she never did anything too interesting with science that was cool to me or any of my classmates.
