Educational Software 1 is an exceptional website which produces excellent and stimulating activities for learners of all ages. Among the lists of software, there was one particular program which caught my eye. School Zone Flash Action Reading Readiness is an electronic workbook and more. This program is one which glues beginning reading skills with interactive activities and fun games. A proven curriculum, audio guidance and clear examples are what assist children with their preparation for reading success. Designed for children between the ages 4 to 6, Reading Readiness, a tutorial program monitors every child's progress through assessing their ability to classify, and understanding of the ABC order to rhyming words and opposites. It also increases, establishes and expands a child's vocabulary, sequencing, visual discrimination and encourages eye-hand coordination. This program is deemed relevant and useful for children, whether home-schooled or in the general classroom as it allows each child to learn and work independently, and develops each child to become critical thinkers by generating new questions and activities. Can it get any better? Of course!!! Reading Readiness not only provides and incorporates fun with learning, but as stated earlier, does not hesitate to keep up with the progress of the child which helps in developing an all-round individual who is well versed and is able to not only read well but use appropriate vocabulary and concepts when needed.

As prospective teachers, hopefully we are not entering this career just for the money but because we care and want to make a difference in this thing called 'education'. Everyday we hear multiple stories about children who are underestimated, discriminated and disrespected by their teachers because of maybe a disability, race, socioeconomic background and the list goes on and on. However, i believe, that every child is special, unique and blessed in their own little way connected with their divine purpose in life. Instead of looking down on them and speaking negative words to them, if no one else does it, as teachers we must be agents of change, happiness and positivity. We must take that resonsibility to speak and encourage positive things into each aspect of their lives. As servants we should serve as humbly as we know how. Effort is essential and its only when we show effort in helping these children, and young people that they will truly change. This movement will result in less conflict and school violence, because before they even bring their thoughts into actions, some positive word which has influenced their being will register again in their thoughts and actions will be different. Let us be DIFFERENT!!!!!
I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help, my help cometh from the Lord, who has made the heavens and the earth.
