"Booking Through Thursday"

A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Margaret asks:
Who taught you to read?

I learned to read when I started to school. My first grade teacher was the one who taught me the basics of reading, and each teacher after that added to what I had already learned. I remember when reading clicked into my brain with the words for and fore. I have no idea why those two words made an impression on me, but they did. It was so exciting to realize I could figure out words and I could read, "Spot can run"...."Jane ran too"...or something like that...I loved it. 

So do you remember who taught you to read?


  1. How good - it must have been a great moment! I wish I could remember it too.

  2. Yes..that's like me as well. I love my primary school teachers...helped so much.

  3. I so remember that book. Can even remember the illustrations. Have a great upcoming weekend.

  4. I remember the feeling when letters suddenly became words and they started making sense! Amazing feeling! :) Thanks for sharing!

  6. I also remember it being exciting to figure out words and sentences. and thanks to our teachers, look how far we have come in reading! :)

  7. My kindergarten teacher as I recall taught me to read.

  8. I read at an early age, probably self- taught.

  9. I'm pretty sure I was able to read before I got to kindergarten. We had a lot of books in our home and my mother read to us when we were very young. But I do remember being very happy to read and recognize the very simple words in the books I first read at school, the Dick and Jane books.

  10. Hi! Thanks for the visit to my blog!

    I was happy the day I got the spelling of Orange correct. I didn't forget the 'e'! :-)
