Literacy Memories
Personal View of Literacy Cont.
After reading the Morrow article I discovered what characteristic embody an exemplary literacy classroom. I think that if I had had that type of instruction in my early years I would not have struggled as bad in the third grade with literacy. The article focused on the characteristics that make up a well-rounded literacy classroom, some of which include: providing various types of reading and writing experiences, embracing teachable moments, and classroom management. I plan to include these characteristics in my future classroom.
Awareness Of My Past and How it Will Impact My Future
I found that reflecting on my past brought back a lot of memories, both positive and negative. I remember always getting anxiety when I was asked to randomly read aloud in front of my class. I will make a note to my future self to keep that in mind. One of my favorite memories in elementary school was when my fifth grade teacher Mrs. Fannin read to us the book,
Bud Not Buddy
. Her voice was calming and as she read I created an elaborate picture in my mind of the characters and the setting. Being aware of my background will be helpful in my teaching approach in the future.
Personal View of Literacy
I think that literacy plays a huge role inside and outside of the classroom. I found the

Go Of The Letter Of The Week
article interesting and it gave me a new perspective on how reading and writing should look and feel in the classroom. I felt that I could really connect with the way that Donna Jarvis felt when she was put into a lower reading group. She felt defeated; I had similar feelings when I was in elementary school. I want to be teacher that empowers students with knowledge and confidence. I also really liked the way that Jarvis related writing to the real world. She showed her students the importance of writing and how it is vital to life. This article gave me a better idea of how I want to teach in the future.
K.C. Hart's Literacy History Journey
Hello my name is K.C. Hart. I am junior here at East Carolina. My major is Elementary Education with a concentration in science. I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I come from a long line of educators, I guess you could say it is in my blood. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends I also enjoy running and participating in local 5ks.
Past Literacy Experiences
As a child my parents exposed me to books and I was read aloud to often, but it was not until I was in the 3rd grade when I really put the pieces together. I struggled all the way through kindergarten, first, and second grade when it came to reading. I remember having to painfully sound out letter sound in words that I did not know, which at the time felt like every word on the page. In the 3rd grade my teacher noticed my lack of comprehension and phonics skills. I worked with a reading specialist for an entire year to help get me on grade level. At the end of year I was able to confidently read aloud and understand the material. As a young child I remember being so proud of myself for making such progress. That was the year my love of reading began.
My Gran would save the MiniPage each week and we would read it together.
