I remember the first class we had with Dr. Morris and he stressed the importance of reading at home. I already knew this but it has made me more cognizant of the students I have. I am amazed just this school year of the number of children I have that have NO print concept, don't know what a letter is, have no idea what a book is for. I have one that doesn't know a color, a number, a letter, a shape, his name, nothing. No beginning skills. I want to think where has this child been????? But then I look at the situation and realize, the fact that he is alive and healthy is a miracle in itself.

          I agree and it is so sad. It makes me really understand why we need to send homework that is on the child's independent level. With not only English language learn ears but with English only learners ... more
