E801 DIFFICULTIES IN LITERACY DEVELOPMENT IMPLEMENTATION OF PLAN FOR STUDENT This assignment is focused on the implementation of short- term learning plan on one of my students that is currently facing learning difficulties in literacy and to evaluate whether this plan has a positive or negative effect on the child. A short-term, day-to-day plan must incorporate the basis for medium-term targets and offer opportunities for daily formative assessment. It is also the basis of a process of analyzing, building and improving a student’s weaknesses. A child in my class, Emily, seems to be facing certain learning difficulties at school but despite this, she is a child who tries to participate in the lesson. Her behaviour in…show more content…
Emily would work also with her other teachers and parents to better her abilities. However, through out the process, this proved to be a little difficult to achieve within the time frame. The reason for this was due to the fact that Emily had many weaknesses that needed time to be addressed. Emily found it very difficult at first, but with patience, persistence and a lot of hard work both at school and at home we managed to succeed in achieving 3 out of our 4 goals that were set out in the plan.

Emily now knew the alphabet, but in order to be able to read and write clearly she must first learn the sounds that each letter makes. We separated the letters into groups again, vowels and consonants. Vowels prove to be the easiest of the letters for a child to learn. So, for the first couple of days I would show Emily each vowel separately and would ask her to tell me what sound it makes and then switch, asking her to match the sound with the letter. I believe she did quite well with this task as I think she thought of it as a game. During the week, I also made her read out words beginning with vowels which Emily also managed to do
