    Special Announcement Regarding Remote Learning

     
    I hope you and your family were able to enjoy some wonderful time this summer relaxing and having some fun! Although we will not be starting the 20-21 school year together, we will all be working very hard to make this remote learning start to our school year as smooth as possible.  If you have any questions, you are encouraged to contact your child's teacher or you can email me at cwinsor@henry.k12.ga.us.  You are welcome to use any resources I have on my webpage.  Check back periodically as I will be updating during remote learning and/or throughout the school year.  We have made it to the end of remote
    Stay safe and hope to see our students soon!

    I am so excited to be working with several grade levels in reading and math as a teacher with the Early Intervention Program (EIP).  The EIP program is designed to serve students who are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level.  The purpose of the Early Intervention Program is to provide additional instructional resources to help students who are performing below grade level obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade level performance in the shortest possible time. 
     
    As a certified teacher, I collaborate with the regular classroom teachers to provide supplementary instruction based on the needs of each student.  My main focus is working in small groups for reading and math. We work on catching up to grade-level reading expectations for phonics, sight words, word attack skills, comprehension skills, and test-taking strategies.  In math, we work on catching up to grade-level expectations in number sense, counting & addition/subtraction strategies, problem-solving, math reasoning, and various other concepts such as fractions, money, geometry, etc.  You are welcome to any of the resources I have on my webpage, or email me if you need any further information.  
     
    I am also one of the teacher sponsors of our Chess Club here at RSE.  You can find more information about the RSE Chess Club under the "Activities" tab at the top of the school web page.  (All clubs which meet after school have been postponed for now due to COVID concerns. I will update the Chess Club webpage and/or send home information when we are able to resume Chess Club meetings.)
      
    I hope this school year is the best year ever for our Rock Spring Roadrunners!!

    Henry County High Frequency Words Grades K-3 (Sight Words)

    (To practice the most commonly used words in text.  Memorizing these words will help your child greatly improve your child's reading ability! See which words your child knows/doesn't know--should be able to read word within 3 to 5 seconds/without sounding out. Mark words they don't know and make flashcards.  Practice 5 known and 5 unknown words until 5 unknown are mastered and then add 5 more unknown and remove 5 known so they are practicing 10 words every day.)
