The goals of a readings specialist:

 

First, as an elementary reading specialist I will be providing quality instruction for students in grades 2 and 3 to improve reading achievement. This instruction typically includes a small group of students or one on one instruction. The focus of these lessons will center around student specific needs based on district assessments and teacher feedback. These lessons will include reading strategies, fluency, comprehension, text structure, word work, as well as other topics. 
Second, the reading specialist serves as a resource person for students, parents, teachers, and administration.The goal is to help all students become successful readers.

Books.pngAll 2nd Grade Students will be part of our "Poetry Club" this year. This means that students will be given various poems to read throughout the year that are appropriate for their reading level. The club will not only encourage fluent reading but also increase an enjoyment of poetry.
