My First Teacher—Mom

May 23, 2017

 

 

My mother was a big proponent of education. When I was a child, Mom taught me my ABCs and had me reading before I entered primary school. If she could, she would buy me whatever book I wanted.

 

Mom used to play a phonics game with me too. She would say a word and I had to tell her what letter started it. She made learning fun and I came to love reading because of her effort.

 

Most adults, when I was a little kid, wrote in cursive. I was fascinated by it because I wanted to write like the grown-ups too. I would scribble on a piece of paper, show my mom, and she would circle and identify the letters I wrote correctly. It was a thrill when I reproduced an actual cursive letter before I learned it in school.

 

She was an incredible woman even attending college after retiring. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without her positive influence. Thank you, Mom.

 

Passing on my mom’s educational wishes for me to you, here’s a link to Starfall. It’s a website geared to educate young children in phonics, reading, and more.  http://www.starfall.com/ The site is fun to peruse even if you’re an adult and please let your friends with kids know about it.

 

Happy writing  :->
