For me, READING is a way to ESCAPE from my every day stress. It brings me peace and helps me reconnect with myself. I literally become part of the story I am reading. I often create a "pretend" relationship with the main character. IT IS MAGIC!
When I started to read around grade 1, I remember feeling powerful and in control. I felt important.I felt I could do anything. It helped with my self-esteem. I knew I could read anything at school, so I felt confident that I could succeed.
I sincerely hope that I can help all my students in grade one and two experience this amazing feeling!
