Class Experience

The students will develops skills in reading comprehension and fluency on the second grade reading level. 
 As an elementary classroom teacher, I have taught reading through guided reading for many years. Each type of genre offers new and explicit reading skills and strategies that students are able to apply, use and retain the information that they are presented and have read. Along the way they are building fluency and gaining in their reading abilities.  I have seen young readers grow and develop newly found  literacy skills in both  reading and writing about reading that forster their independence. I have seen students achieve success and growth with starting a new beginning in guided reading.
It is recommended but not required  that the students read 15-30 minutes a day to improve their reading skills.
 1 file available upon enrollment
paper and pencil I will supply the reading materials from my library of leveled readers for second grade. The leveled readers that I have been granted in writing copyright permission to use in my class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
As an introduction to Reading, I will assess the students reading to select a just right book and reading instructional  level. I will complete informal assessments throughout the lessons. First, during the beginning of the lesson. Then, during the middle of the lesson within small group instruction, and at the end assessing the students completed assignments and tasks.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
