Through learning of vowels a kid is able to learn the different sounds and later how to make a syllable. Syllables are the basic units of words which are further joined with helping words to make a meaningful word or a sentence. Every literate person learned how to write or read through some formal or informal education. Informal institutions like the kindergartens and baby cares play a big part in the society regarding this matter (Holbek 7).
At this period am proud to say my parents played a major role in what I am today. In class I never understood how to pronounce some vowels, finish my homework and majorly how to write my name. The latter, on many occasions made me skip writing my name on writing books or the quizzes we were frequently given. Pronunciation was a big burden in my kindergarten life, especially words that had two or three syllables (Kozol 194).
Each day after school, my parents used to teach me these problems countless times before I slept, which was kind of a torture for me at some point. At times when I was stubborn, I was occasionally punished through spanking and some grounding. Through the frequent teachings and memorizations, I learned how to write my name and even learned some pronunciations beyond my level. Pronunciations and writing of my name is one practice that I believe would never end any time soon, because I still use them up to now (Kozol 199).
Apart from the basic learning of writing and pronunciations, the kids are also given time to play.
