It was a good relief to know that the students where just as interested in me as I were them. Upon starting the work we would have them sit down a read out of a book. Since I was mostly in Kindergarten it was more of a guided reading and they followed along. A couple of the students were able to also read the book along with me but some would just have more a confused look; mostly just looking at pictures. I fixed this by helping them sound out words and phrases to read the book with me.
Anderson’s (1984) study revealed that the observed traits on reading interest among children are manifested by reading silently, listening, reading aloud with an emphasis on accurate oral reading, and reading under certain instructional conditions. The study of Guthrie et. al., (2005) revealed that self-initiated behaviors such as wanting to talk to friends about the reading material, choosing to read it, and interest in the topic are intrinsic constructs of reading interest; whereas wanting to get the best grades, making the teacher happy, and getting awards/rewards are the extrinsic motivation construct for interest traits. Added to this, Hidayat and Aisah (2013) reported that the ultimate reading interest trait are behaviors approaching towards reading the book and low interest would be manifested by avoiding the book. In a different setting, Maccoby (1954) revealed the children shows vicarious satisfaction as a trait for interest when the TV program relates to fantasy-themed platforms.
Summary: As we can see that book handling is a very important skill because it comes in handy. They talk about a few of the skills such as, reading from top to bottom and left to right along with page to page. Aron is one of the kids they are using to observe. They talk about how he uses some skills to help him read. As he reads we can see he really wants to be able to read he sounds out the words and is showing signs of improving.
I will provide books with different cultural and languages, so children will have a sense of inclusion in their classroom. SLO IV: I invite children in my classroom to share and read their home language book. SLO V: I have learned from this class is good communication will help me to have better relationship with people that are around me. I have never known that the children’s earliest language experiences will be their first movements, their babbling, cooing, and speaking words will be precursors of their later language and literacy learning. Therefore, this course has impacted my thoughts about
Read alouds allow the teacher to model fluent reading and make the comprehension process visible, (Hilden and Jones, 2013, "THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d). Some students do not receive read alouds at home, and these are the children that especially need to be read to, ( Otto, 2014). As the children progress through their schooling, they begin to think that reading fast is the most efficient, but when the teacher models her thought process aloud, this allows the students to witness what “good reading” actually entails(Hilden and Jones, 2013, "THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d). Part of “good reading” is asking questions about the
Teaching student’s comprehension while their schemas are expanding is a great idea. While teaching students how to read fluently, teach them how to make connections, visualize, ask question, and how to make inferences. If this is taught to children as they learn how too fluently it will expand their “how to read” schema. The idea of how schema could help comprehension that the article provided could lead to many discoveries. Teaching comprehension at this age and getting students to actively ask questions and make inferences will help them excel in future classes.
Read Books About Preschool with Them Children’s books are one of the easiest ways that you can educate your child about a subject that may be a little more complex or unfamiliar. Look for children’s books that talk about preschool and read these books to or with your child. This will get them more familiar about the concept of school and in some cases, they may become excited about the idea of actually attending school.
Children’s interest in learning to talk begins with this. They learn to be responsive through these talks from parents. So just by talking and chatting to their children, parents make the communication and language progress smooth. In addition to this when parents start sharing books with their children, the path to reading skills progresses. So, it is very essential to share children’s development information with parents and to encourage them constantly to be the important part of their child’s
Discuss what Brown and Deavers learned about the relationship between children learning to read English and grain sizes? What strategies were the children developing and how did this help them? (12) According to the article, Brown and Deavers found a majority of small grain size answers for the less skilled readers and a majority of large grain size answers for the skilled readers. This statement shows that reading acquisition begins with small units. Their idea was that the children in their study were developing both small unit and large unit sub lexical recoding strategies.
Phonemic awareness is important to learn how to read and it is prerequisite. “Phonemic awareness is also nurtured in spontaneous ways by providing children with language-rich environments and emphasizing wordplay as teachers read book aloud and engage children in singing songs, chanting poems, and telling riddles” (Tompkins, p.115). I learned that most teachers begin with consonants and then vowels to teach C-V-C pattern words. There are 8 useful rules for phonics that are two sounds of c, two sounds of g, CVC pattern, Final e or CVCe pattern, CV pattern,
Developing children’s language and literacy through modelling reading books aloud, or one on one discussion’s not only encourages conversations and collaborative thinking but also helps children gain a deeper understanding by being able to listen and absorb the language being used around them. Allowing children to be actively engaged with a book such as retelling a story though dramatisation or inviting children to play with objects related to concepts or characters in the book (Wasik & Bond, 2001) increases a child’s comprehension and language development. Early childhood settings base their pedagogy and practice around a play based program, I believe that children learn through hands on experiences as they experiment with the trial and error of their actions. John Dewey’s (1897) philosophy of progressive education redirected today’s early childhood education as it emphasizes the need to learn by doing, as he believed that human beings learn through a ‘hands on’ approach. Children must be able to interact and explore with their environment in order for them to adapt and learn, by creating a child-centred approach in an early childhood setting this allows for the child’s needs and interests to be catered for.
This was to help students understand that written language is meaningful, gain an understanding of text structures, and see what fluid reading looks and sounds like (Bainbridge & Heydon, 2017). The purpose of the read-aloud was also to help students work on the three receptive dimensions of language and literacy(Listening, Reading, Viewing). Along with the read-aloud, students were to bring in an artifact to share with the class. The purpose of this was to help them relate their lives to the story. When students see a connection between themselves and a character, they seem to enjoy reading more than when they do not see a connection.
By implementing literature circle all the students are reading at their level and with people from their level. Forming reading level groups, will help those students that need extra time reading to take their time and be helped by those of their level. Also, it helps advance readers will be challenge with a higher level of vocabulary that will be introduce in the reading. In classes I have observe this method of teacher is implied, but all students are reading the same books. The only different were the reading assignments were modified based on their academic level.
