Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. I work with students in every second grade homeroom. I reinforce the objectives for second graders as I work with individuals and small groups. My focus will be to help each student increase his/her level of reading fluency and comprehension by reading fiction and nonfiction books, learning decoding skills, predicting skills, and using the context to determine meaning. I will also focus on identifying and manipulating sounds to read and spell unknown words. Please listen to your child read every night and encourage him/her to use the skills that we have been practicing at school. I will also work with small groups of students to reinforce math skills that are being practiced within their classroom. Please see your child's homeroom teacher's website for nightly homework. I am looking forward to working with all of the second graders!
