I have been a K-2 teacher for over 20 years.  My expertise is in reading intervention and I have worked in that area for the last 8 years.  I am very passionate about helping children learn how to read and especially passionate about helping those students who are struggling and need an out of the box way to learn how to become successful readers!  I take a very hands on multi-sensory approach to learning the basic foundational skills  and above all we make it fun!!!!
Simple fun activities that go along with our topic for the day such as rhyming or a particular letter and sound may be suggested.  Nothing will be required but the more they practice the skills they are learning the more successful they will be.  
For this class I would suggest that students get a whiteboard/marker/eraser or paper and pencil. Magnetic letters (lowercase) optional Items to print out and use in our daily lessons may be requested from time to time.
Students will be assessed informally through daily assignments  during our group time.  Parents will also be given a report every 8 to 10 weeks
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
