SECOND GRADE: The goal is “Learning to Read”. To achieve this, I will primarily be using systematic phonemic instruction, sight word practice, repeated readings and trade books at their independent levels.
THIRD GRADE: The goal is “Reading to Learn”. To achieve this, I will be focusing on comprehension strategies, fluency, and decoding multi-syllabic words, and reading chapter books at their independent levels.
FOURTH GRADE: Groups will be seen 2-3 days per week and will focus on the reading skills that students have areas of need in. Fluency and decoding words with affixes are the greatest areas of need. The goal for fourth grade is “Reading to Apply’. Comprehension strategies will be used to achieve this goal.
