This class is geared towards kindergarten students who have a firm grasp on all letter/sound correspondences and are able to write all of the letters of the alphabet. The class provides a framework for families who would like guidance from an experienced teacher with teaching their young children to advance to the next stage of reading development. As the class is held once a week, we will learn/review a particular phonetic construction in each class with follow-up practice to be completed during the week. We will consistently review all letter-sound correspondences with simple CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words and blends. New concepts to be covered include special vowel combinations, digraphs, inflectional endings, and common long vowel constructions.
Throughout the class, we will continue to practice and achieve fluent reading of appropriate decodable books. Multiple modalities are used so that all students can access the concepts. We use games and hands-on activities in each class to reinforce learning.
I have over 15 years of experience teaching reading publicly and privately and have taught my own children to read at an advanced level. With consistent participation in the class and follow-up practice of concepts learned, I can help your child become a confident reader!
