Reading is the Key
Most everyone has had a teacher say that reading is the key to success. Despite how cliche this may sound, it is entirely true in terms of success in school. If one cannot read, they may suffer from being uninformed about anything that is written in print. While this may not sound like a big deal, I challenge you to go through one day and see how many things you read. I think you would be amazed at how many things truly are written in print that we depend on. Also, the older we get the more difficult the text is in our schoolwork making reading is a skill that builds on itself. Needless to say, f students don't have the foundation, they will struggle as time goes on. The upside to reading is that reading for pleasure is a life-long skill that most people enjoy. As a teacher, I implore you to help foster the love of reading in your students. This will not only help them with their schoolwork but with enjoyment throughout their lifetimes.
