READ 3301

Something I would do different with my class once I am a teacher is some sort of system so my students do not forget their library books. When I was a child I always forgot mine and I was not able to check out new books and it sucked, i always felt so left out; I do not want to have my students having to deal with that anxiety.

I am a Junior here at ECU. I am majoring in Elementary Education with a concentration in Math. I want to teaching Kindergarten, first, or seconds grades if I get lucky enough to choose. I decided on elemenatry education as my major because I love children and I love to do crafts, best of both worlds in elementary school. Ultimatly it was not until my first practicum that I realized the classroom is truely where my heart is at. Some of my favorite books are actually christian from my church.

My Literacy HistoryBy: Bayley Patterson

I remember reading the hungry catepillar as a class and watching a video about the illustrator.

My students will most likely be young enough to remember their parents reading to them. If not they will remember me as their teacher reading to them.

Trying to remember how I learned to read is a lot more difficult that one would think, but since I am going to be a teacher soon I might as well stop assuming that I or other people can easily recall or do something. I vaguely remember my dad teaching me how to pronounce the word three, I always would say th-ee and forget to say the "r" in the word. My dad got so frustrated with me and was determined to correct my mistake, I honestly do not think I was aware of my mistake at that age. Another thing I remember is reading small boooks with sentences like "See Spot run."; I remember reading those all by myself on road trips; I remember wanting hooked on phonics books.

In the Bell & Jarvis article I can relate to the authors experience of not being in the top reading group. In school I felt my teachers did not believe in me because I was in one of the lower reading levels and so therefore I began to not believe in myself.

I personally do not remember my parents reading to me, that is not to say that they did not do so however I simply do not remember. So in the future when I am a mother and/or a teacher I want to be sure to create lasting memories for those cihldren. Memories that they can take with them into adulthood, especially since I did not have many.

My favorite genre of books when I was younger was Mystery; In third grade I remember reading The Magic Tree House books.
