Homework Offered
Students are asked to complete their assignment if they do not finish before class is over. Students/parents are welcome and encouraged to send me the student's work through Outschool if they would like it proofread and/or would like some additional feedback on the student's writing. Parents can also practice reading comprehension strategies at home: 1. Be sure you have your child's attention. 2. Minimize distractions. 3. As you read, have students repeat phrases back to you. 4. Ask yourself questions while you read…”I wonder why…” 5. Use “wait time.” Give students a minute to think before repeating your question. 6. Check for understanding. Ask them to repeat the question back to you. 7. Help students make connections between the book and their own experiences! 8. For emergent writers, always pair writing and drawing together! Draw and write with the story in mind!
Assessments Offered
Students will be given opportunities for speaking and oral reading. Students will be assessed informally through participation, questioning, and by completing a written response and drawing based on the book we read. (Note: We will review pre-writing strategies for young writers who do not yet write words.) Students are asked to complete their assignment if they do not finish before class is over. Students/parents are welcome and encouraged to send the student's work to me through Outschool if they would like it proofread and/or would like some additional feedback on the student's writing.
Grades Offered
While I can provide my own materials, based on my assessment of student needs, I would love parent input on students' current goals, interests, and needs so that we work together to tailor the materials to the individual child.
The Reading Teacher's Book of Lists by Fry, Kress, and Fountoukidis
A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech

While I have my own sources I can use to support student needs, I can create units based on books and novels that students are interested in studying.  All classes will focus on reading comprehension, writing, fluency, speaking/conversation, listening, making connections.
