Back to School

Hello and welcome back to my blog at this time of the year again. I will be involved with a Reading Intervention Program at a school as well as continuing to tutor. I look forward to helping students increase their reading ability and fluency through strategic techniques.

Reading is so important that everybody should learn to read especially at a young age. Beginning in Kindergarten students are introduced to reading in various ways through modelled reading, shared reading, guided reading, and independent reading. Using the  Dolch Sight Words can help the students read whereby they learn to memorize the words 'by sight.' Once they remember most of these words their reading excels and if their curiosity is piqued they are off to the races. The students' interest in reading must be fueled by encouragement and positive support so that the student will develop a natural enthusiasm to read on their own.
