Earliest Literacy Memories
Some of my earliest memories involving literacy are the memories I have of my grandma reading books to me. As a child I loved to listen to my grandma read any kind of book to me. Her voice was always relaxing and made me really enjoy reading!
My First Attempt at Writing
Growing up, I was very close with my cousins. I remember spending many hours in my grandma's playroom playing "school". My cousin Kelsey would pretend to be the teacher and I was the student. Kelsey would write things on a chalkboard and I would copy down what she was writing. While this isn't my very first writing experience, playing "school" was something I definitely did quite often as a child.
Library Experiences As A Child
One of my favorite things to do in the summer as a child was attend our library's summer reading program. I really enjoyed this experience because we always got to have fun with our friends and earn prizes for reading!
