Reading is the foundation on which learning is built. This ongoing one on one class is an opportunity for readers to practice literacy skills one on one with Miss Rachel while setting and working towards reading goals. Session topics will be learner directed or dictated weekly to best meet the individual goals of each learner. Each week learner will select a book to read aloud from and teacher will secure a copy from her own bookshelves or borrow from a local library. Session 1: Getting...
Goals will be set, reviewed, and reassessed often during or between sessions. We will discuss current learner interests to aid in selection of new material. Public libraries are a great place to find new reading material!
Readers are encouraged to read often between sessions and keep a reading journal. (reading journals are optional, but can be great fun!)
Learners will be asked to bring their reading material. Miss Rachel frequents her local library and will often check out materials your learner may enjoy. She encourages learners to do the same (and provide titles of books in advance of the session so that she may also request the material from her library!)
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In this class, learners will practice reading comprehension and read aloud skills. This class is designed to support emergent readers outside of regular classes with a reading teacher or parent by setting, exploring, and assessing reading goals. Many readers blossom when given opportunities to read and respond to topics that interest them with more than one adult. Miss Rachel loves to help young readers find joy and success in independent reading, thus also providing a parent an alternate to hearing their young reader practice the same material (or talk about the same topic!) multiple times. Readers are encouraged to choose material for this session that is either relatively new to them or is just outside their comfort zone. It is in this “stretch zone” that growth occurs. Readers’ learning will flourish when they explore topics that interest them at or just above their reading level. If the material is too easy, or the topic is not interesting, the learner will not grow as much. The goal is to keep each reader in their "stretch zone" while expanding their ability and skills.
