Do you desire to become a stronger reader? Are you ready to up-level your reading, writing, and thinking? If you're a parent, do you want these things for your learner?
In this class, we will definitely do all of this! We will celebrate our love of reading and work on our reading skills simultaneously. This class will be operated in a way that starts in the beginning yet builds on several areas so that multiple levels of readers can work together to improve their individual reading abilities- And YES, we will have FUN!
My aim is to identify and close the reading gaps in my students' abilities. My private tutoring students generally improve one grade level in their reading level with just 10-12 hours of instruction, so I'm excited about this group format!
This course focuses on the five components of reading that is differentiated for this age group. It is for readers who find reading to be more difficult than fun. The primary skills for Level I include reviewing phonics, fluency, writing in response to reading, and comprehension. In Level II, we build upon this framework by removing phonics and adding higher- level thinking and reading skills; this includes more inferencing, summarizing, drawing conclusions, etc. In addition, we will practice test taking skills such as finding evidence and rereading to gain clarity. Everything in this class aims to allow an opportunity for students to gain and grow healthy reading habits.
***Students can take Level II without taking Level I. ***
In this class, we will be learning literacy skills and will aim to provide a framework so that every student will end the course with a brighter spark for reading.
