I learned to read in preschool at a very early at the tender age of four. I remember the passion, joy, and pride that I felt when I discovered my love for reading and books. To this day I am a huge fan of physical books, not just e-books. I vaguely seem to remember a day from that very first one that I have not read a good book, spent endless hours in bookstores, libraries, and shared my thoughts in book reviews. I never knew a time where reading did not exist in my household growing up as a child. I remember that my mother had this endless set of encyclopedias and whenever we had a school project she would make reference for the family to utilize those historical references for information on anything from Science to Literature.
I simply enjoyed sitting on the little multicolored carpet with the other children in my preschool class and listening to stories being read a loud to the class before nap time. I adored how my teacher’s voice would sail across the pages of each book.We had a system of rewards for completing a certain series of books as I moved forward in Elementary school. Some of the greatest moments in my life involved reading and moving from one stage of reading development to the other in school. Some of the best days were when my teacher would allow me to take a book home that I completed in a series!
My love and ongoing passion for reading has presented so many different awesome opportunities in my life as an adult. I developed a love for teaching, coaching, and writing my own books. By being a teacher I felt that it was important to transform young minds into powerful thinkers and readers. I believe that if you are an avid reader you become a great thinker. This valuable course served as a great reminder of new tools to use for my three year old daughter.
