It was great to see all of my students after a restful summer vacation. I was excited to recognize 137 students for their extra hard work and dedication to read over the summer with our Summer Reading Program.
This school year, I will be focusing on Guided Reading in grades 1-5. Classroom teachers and I will be working with the students in small groups to teach the skills necessary to become fluent readers as well as improving the studentsí comprehension skills.
Kindergarten will be learning to recall the details of the beginning, middle and end (BME) of a story through a combination of drawing and the written word.
Please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions you may have. Should your child have any difficulty, I will be happy to give you some suggestions as to how you can help at home.
When parents and teachers work together, the children are the winners.
