Class Experience

Students will strengthen their math skills in counting and manipulating numbers, place value, geometric concepts, graphing, and patterns. Students will strengthen their phonemic awareness skills of listening, counting word syllables, rhyming and word families, discriminating/segmenting words vs. sentences, and differentiating initial, middle, and final sounds.  Common Core Standards Listed:
Recognize and produce rhyming words.
Count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words.
Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words.
Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.

Students will identify letters and corresponding sounds to blend words.
Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant.
Associate the short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.

I have 22 years combined experience in elementary and early childhood classrooms in the public and private sectors.  I have been a private tutor and consultant for 5 years for students ages 4 to 12, helping students make great gains in reading.
