Dear Families, 
    
I am looking forward to partnering with you and your child! Our classroom will focus on the five essential components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. During our work together, your child will learn a lot about themselves as a reader and create goals that are best suited for their needs. Goals will reflect one of the five essentials and this will be our focus during our time together. Your child's progress will continuously be monitored and goals will be changed as necessary. In the tools for students, your child will have access to their progress portfolio to share with you. Please, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns! 

Sincerely,
Mrs. Nicole Tornow
Reading Specialist
