The year is flying by. 
Spring conference time is here. I will be offering individual conferences at both the lower and upper conference. Due to the nature of my groups it often works better to schedule conferences for all grades, instead of being part of the round robin, for middle school students. Below is the link to sign up.

September - Done with assessments and are beginning groups. Please contact the me, your child's classroom teacher or Ms. Wozinak if they are on a plan and you would like a beginning of the year conference.

It is a pleasure to meet all the new Kindergarten students and all new students to the school. I always love seeing how much the others have grown and changed over the summer. We are off to a great start in the literacy intervention room. 

I will begin the year by assessing all students in grades 1-5 that I worked with last year. I will also assess all Kindergarten students and any new students. Using WIN time on Friday mornings I will begin to reassess all new Middle School Students as well as Students I have seen in the past. Groups will be starting in the middle of September.  I will be having middle school groups at the Upper Campus at WIN time. If Middle School students are in a Tuesday/Thursday study I can meet with them on Thursday at elective time. Before school time will be determined once we establish the need/interest. Thursday, if they have study hall. 

We are all readers. My goal is to take each reader from where they are and move them along the reading path.  As a reading teacher I love reading, books, and talking about books.  My goal is to help picky readers become avid readers. So students, your challenge is to recommend your favorite book to me and if I have not read it, I will add it to my list of must reads.  

Welcome new students. At Carondelet we focus on every students individual needs. In the intervention group we will work on letters, letter names, and sounds. We also work on concert of print and use rhymes. 

Reading 1- 2:

We will be focusing on the multiple ways to read as we become better readers. 

Ways we read: 
1) Reading with pictures
2) Retelling stories
3) Reading with words.

We will be working on our skills (letters,phonics, sight words) and strategies to decode words, comprehending what we read and interacting with our text.

We will continue to work on our reading skills, strategies, fluency, and comprehension strategies. Making the change from "learning to read" to "reading to learn.
In comprehension we will focus on:

3) Retelling
4) Visualizing 
5) Questioning
6) Summarizing (Main Idea, Character, Setting and Plot)

Reading 6-8:
We will also continue to work on reading, comprehension strategies and fluency.  We will be reading to learn and reading for deeper meaning.  We will talk about 1st and 2nd draft reading, just like writing;  to polish our craft and add details.
