  • My goal is that my students love books and love reading.  As students become more confident in their reading, they will have more fun reading. 

    The 10 most important things to do to become a proficient reader are:

    READ     READ     READ     READ    READ     READ    READ     READ     READ     READ

     

    When students come to work with me there are three main things that we do together:

    • Read books--rereading familiar books, reading new books, choosing books to read for fun 
    • Writing about reading
    • Word Work

    We talk a lot about the books we are reading to develop deep understanding of the story and the author's message.
