Abstract

Literacy is very important for students because the skills in literacy affect the success of their learning and life. In early writing literacy, students are expected to be able to produce writing that can begin with spelling writing. This study aims to determine the problems faced by teachers in early reading literacy. This research uses a qualitative approach. The research subjects were in grade 1 and 2 elementary school teachers. The results showed that the reading difficulties faced by students appearing to be improper reading habits, mistakes in knowing words, mistakes in understanding reading. In reading students have difficulty in distinguishing letters, such as distinguishing the letters p and d, m and n, and b and d. As a result, students have difficulty in producing writing, both orally and in writing.
