Class Experience

Students will become confident readers of Advanced Code words like "right, weight, dough, cream, valley" which contain groups of letters that represent one sound. 
I am a certified elementary teacher and certified reading therapist. I am offering this class to give students an in-depth study of how our English words are structured, and how to break them down into their sounds in order to make decoding easier. I teach each lesson using the Phono-graphix method which I have been formally trained in by the program authors.  I have been using this strategy with my private students for over 20 years and my students have had amazing success with it. 
Independent practice is encouraged by reading from the suggested reading list. 
Either a spiral-bound notebook or looseleaf notebook paper and a folder with brads is required.
Informal assessment of student's skills through their responses during class time. Parents may request a written assessment from the teacher upon completion of the class. 
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All materials for this class are teacher created.
