First steps through reading

Teaching is never an easy job and is certainly not something that you learn at university. Teaching is something that you must always try to get better and better at and you have to be able to adapt to your students' needs and abilities.

When you have kids with certain difficulties, then you need to try and find ways to help them learn things that you or others have managed to conquer in very little time.

Here I'm trying to help a ten-year-old read very basic four- and five-letter words. Colors might help her remember syllables as a whole.

The first lesson was quite promising at first, but as time went by, she looked tired and started confusing the words of the two groups.

Our next lesson is this Monday. Let's hope she'll do better!

Good work, @ruth-girl. It was my third grade teacher who taught me to read. I was really late to the skill, but she didn't give up and made a breakthrough. After that I became reading crazy. To this day I remember her and am grateful. Teachers have the power to change lives. Hard work, but worth it.

Good luck with this young reader.

Thank you! I hope I'll manage to help her at least with the basics, as she's falling behind with the rest of her class. My post in this school this year is to teach such students privately to give them a "boost" and persistence and patience is what we need, just like your teacher did. At least I'm trying to enjoy the process despite the difficulties.

Sending you lots of love! ❤️🥰
