Konza (2014, 154) notes in some research, oral language is excluded as a key element in learning to read. Although research suggests that oral language difficulties can lead to reading difficulties, therefore it is an important element. Once students understand oral language teachers can commence with working on
Mind’s Eye strategy could be one of their best ways to solve this problem. This strategy can develop students visualization and improve students reading comprehension as the technique includes students memory and asking them to be more critical in giving their perception and prediction. According to Silver, Strong and Perini (2007) mind’s eye is a reading strategy that is used by the teacher to improve students critical skill of the words on the page into memorable images. When the students read about a text the students will combine their background knowledge with the information that is gotten in the text. In addition, Sejnost (2009) states that this strategy is started by the students who listen to the keywords which are mentioned by the teacher and then attempt to visualize what are they hearing by making pictures in their minds.
Content literacy is connected to all subject areas, and has the potential to maximize content acquisition: 3. What are the differences between DL and CL? Content area literacy strategies are the basic set of strategies students use when reading and responding to texts, with little differentiation being made across the content-area subjects. For example, students may learn techniques for determining important information, making inferences, asking questions, and summarizing.
The point of this article is basically being there for them, teach them how to be independence, have someone to be in their life that we care about them. When the kids have trouble of reading, spelling, studying, we tutorial them and give them practice skills to work on their weakness to work on. We teach them how to control their emotions. When you have a friendly relationship is to always let them know that you care about them and show them develop trust to them, have that special bond with them. It is important to teach students about the classroom rules, schools rules, daily routines, learn to practice new skills in the classroom and out of the classroom, and now their school schedule and outside of school schedule.
The results showed that students obtained a moderate mean in fluency via repeated reading. Not only do some student need assistance at times but also a good model to read so that they can know how to read properly since they will be reading on their own. Older struggling readers need to have a good model when reading .Model reading involves a good model e.g. .
“If students produce it, they can assess it; and if they can assess it, they can improve it,” (Andrade, 2007). Despite the need of a longer time to assess each individual in order to give feedbacks it does not affect the benefits it offers to a child. As Jaidin and Sithamparam (2013) stated, the twenty first century requires skills in teaching and learning that are student centred. To conclude, writing is essential for students as they grow older because it help students think clearly of their thoughts and construct words to justify their
Gazette (2015) stated, ¨It gave us an opportunity to say, ´OK, what got in the way of you getting this done at school?¨ (p. 1). Parents are able to see what their child is struggling with and have the chance to give them guidance. If it was not for homework, parents would be unable to interact with their child about schoolwork. ¨It serves as a good way for parents to observe their children's progress and to teach young people that learning doesn't happen only inside a classroom¨ (Spencer, 2017, p. 3). Parents should be involved in their child's life and interested in their education.
Look at the impact reading aloud does to a child’s literacy skills versus the child that doesn’t get read to. The difference is terrifying. To support children’s literacy development, I strongly believe that all parents should be made to be a part of their child’s literacy journey. Parents should be informed on strategies and resources, and should not be shunned away from supporting their child with different literacy activities at home. While I see the benefits of students received specialized time to get instruction directed to meeting their specific needs, I wonder how this works in the everyday school setting.
When engaging in an interactive read aloud as a teacher, being confident and comfortable in the situation is prevelant for successfully engaging your students to learning and understanding. Being in room 201C and just the enclosed environment of the room made doing this very difficult for me, and I know that it shows in my reading. I also know that there were some positives to take out of this long process to becoming a teacher and improving my ability to do read alouds. I wanted to focus on improving some of the aspects that Dr. Napoli had informed me that I could do better with after our read aloud out in the field. I believe I did a good job at showing the pictures to everyone in the room, even though it might be hard to tell on the video, but with the pictures being an important aspect of a fictional picture book, they deserve just as much attention as the words in the story.
Accelerated reading offers a number of proven benefits to participants. It provides for authentic assessment, significantly contributes to improving reading scores and develops higher order thinking skills via the assessment, recognizing the achievement of the students. The program combines the reading of popular and rich literature with computer-based comprehension tests to provide inspiration for students to read books of higher quality and to read more in general. In addition, the accelerated reading software manages the records of the student to keep track of reading performance, which gives parents and teachers valuable information to evaluate motivation and reading comprehension

Our Something from Nothing Unit was designed to help students acquire positive attitudes towards reading and books. Our goal was to make the unit as enjoyable for students as possible, while ensuring they are working towards mastery of the expectations from the Language Arts and Social Studies curriculum. With the goal of student enjoyment in mind, we chose the book Something from Nothing because we found that many students love this story and can relate to, Joseph, the boy whose belongings are wearing out over time. We began the unit by doing a read-aloud.
I would start by introducing myself to all the parents and ask them what they would like to learn about or if they have any questions on what literacy is. I would tell them how valuable education is and that we need to pass on that value to your children. (Diane M Barone/Marla H. Mallette, 2013). We are going to provide home activities for you as parents to do with your child. This will help build your child’s literacy skills and we will have goals and structure for your child.
Reading Indicator 5.2 Think Aloud is the researched – based reading strategy I chose to use to facilitate the reading comprehension skills while reading nonfiction literature. The strategy used for 5.2, think aloud, is teachers modeling the use of text features to increase students reading comprehension of nonfiction text. Students will observe the teacher asking specific questions about the text, illustrations, charts, and other text features to understand what the text is saying at a deeper level, and retain more information about the text. Furthermore, my objective is that, students will learn how to effectively use text features as they observe the teacher modeling the process, using the reading strategy think aloud, for students while reading a text.
