For many years I thought that writing and reading were only actions that teachers at school tells you to do, but know that I am about to be a teacher, I understand the importance of this two amazing skills that we can practice any time and any occasion. Thru my teenager years, and probably all my life in school, my teachers were always looking for better ways to make students read, at least, for few minutes a day. One thing I remember is that I never read a book when my educators or teachers told me to do it. I was so ignorant that I didn’t understand why they were so into that topic.
Thru the years, I changed my mind about the importance of reading and writing. Now I can tell you that these two essential skills are intimately connected. Parents and teachers need to apply this knowledge all the time, in order to improve children education. What matters here is how to make children and young people read or write. There are millions of strategies about how to make students learn these skills. At first, teachers or parents do not have to make children read or write too much to get them interested. It’s very important to find a specific and easy way to introduce these tools to students without looking too hard.
For example, one of the most effective ways to help children build specific writing skills are to show and discuss with them, models that successfully demonstrate the skill. I remember when I was learning English as my second language; my writing teacher was so interested into getting us to know the importance of the comma in our writing. This sing its very significant because indicate a division in a sentence; as in setting off a word, phrase, or clause, this way, our writing and reading would be more clear and understandable.
Without understanding the connection between sounds and letters, a person cannot read. That? s why I think the connection between reading and writing can help strength these skills in young readers. In simple words, reading and writing are both important; you cannot have one without the other. These are skills that are increased constantly due to little things that are not noticed. Whether it is from a book to a poem there will always be a way that helps out your school performance. Reading and writing, in general, only helps absorb information and complement related writing tasks.
It has also made life itself so much easier because reading and writing are so beneficial for school and for life. Few years ago, I started reading my first book. It was nothing boring or exhausted. First, I went to the library and I walked section by section, until I found the book and the topic that I was interested on reading in that moment. I found out that reading wasn’t that boring; it was like talking with somebody that you don’t even know. It was only giving you advice without asking for anything else.
