Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Welcome to my page! I can't wait to get to know you more as we dive into a new school year. In this class, we will be learning different reading strategies to help us become more effective and fluent readers. On a regular basis, we will participate in small group reading groups that consist of meeting with the teacher, independent or buddy reading, and two other reading activities that will change based upon the skills we are learning for the week. Mondays will typically be used for introducing a new skill through a mini-lesson. Tuesdays through Thursdays will be spent working in reading groups and meeting with the teacher for a guided reading lesson. Fridays we will spend finishing up small groups and review the weekly skill through games or other activities. My hope is that you will come to develop a passion for reading if you do not have it yet, as well as improve your fluency and comprehension skills.
I work part time with my partner, Jamie Shaw. We rotate days throughout the week, and I will see you every Thursday and Friday, and every other Wednesday.
Please feel free to email me at any time with any questions. I will answer via email as soon as possible, or we can schedule a phone conference or face-to-face meeting if needed. I can't wait to work with you and make this a fantastic school year!
