                                Welcome to Basic Skills!
I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year! My goal is to create an environment where students gain confidence in themselves. By gaining confidence they will be more willing to take risks and challenge themselves. My hopes are to provide my students with strategies to help them become successful readers, writers, and problem solvers.
When your child comes home with a Caught You card it is because they were caught using a great strategy. I like to highlight these strategies by writing them on a card to send home. This is a great opportunity for you to have a discussion with your child about the strategy and how it helped them. It will also give you the chance to encourage them to continue to use it!
If you ever have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to call me.
