Journal Entry # 1
My earliest memories of writing were when I was like 5 or 6 years old. I was in second grade at my school called “Franciscanas”. I was very young I remember my mom and dad helping me with everything at home, the only thing I knew how to write was my name other than that I did not know how to write anything else. After I started my second grade class I remember I could write a lot more, and that is how my earliest memories of writing began. I also started reading when I was like 6 or 7 years old. I remember that my dad had some cards with letters like “ CA, LA, SA, LO” and many more, after I started reading the little flash cards, he started putting a lot more together so they would become a word and that is how I remember I started my reading. To me they were great experiences because it taught me a lot, imagine me without knowing how to read and write, I would not be able to be here today. I am glad I had my mom, my dad, and my school teachers to teach me how to read and write. As always you know that we at all times get upset or have a negative thought when we can do what we try, so for me it was a little bit of both a negative and a positive experience but overall it was a positive experience because I finally got to read and write how I was supposed to. The only thing that has changed is that I have gotten better every day and I learn from each mistake I make.
