How you can support your student in reading. In the resource classroom we are currently practicing our fluency in reading.
What is fluency? Fluency in reading sounds like everyday conversation. Your child is encouraged to read 20 mins. per night to increase speed, fluency and comprehension skills.
FLUENCY PRACTICE PASSAGES
Improve reading speed and accuracy with repeated readings of Fluency Practice Passages. Students orally read passages designed for one-minute readings several times with appropriate expression and smoothness to increase reading rate, resulting in improved focus on comprehension.
More About Fluency Practice Passages
On this website you can download reading passages and practice the passages with a timer or stopwatch on your cell phone.
Please contact me if there are any questions.
It’s hard to believe but it’s that time of the year again – the beginning of a new school year. Welcome back! And while you aren’t part of the teaching staff you are just as important to your children’s education as we are.
Your children receive the best education when you and I work as a team. It’s a parents enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best; and a my ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things.
There’s a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master…and I look forward to you sharing in those exciting times.
As a parent myself I know how fast time goes by. One year your child’s in 1st grade and seemingly in the blink of an eye they’re in middle school, or in their senior year of high school for that matter.
I encourage you to fully embrace the moment and urge you to to take the time from your busy schedule to become familiar with our school, as well as create a homework-friendly home environment that will allow your children to excel.
In closing, thank you for your commitment to your child’s education and I look forward to seeing you in the very near future.
Your Child’s Teacher!
We welcome you to come and enjoy lunch with your student on the stage! However, when joining your student for lunch, only your student is permitted to eat with you on the stage. Lately, there has been an issue with multiple students dining with one adult taking up the limited seating and generating lots of traffic in the stage area with students moving between their classroom seating and the stage area.
Thank you for your cooperation in making sure we provide ample space for guest diners and in reducing the amount of traffic at the stage area.
