Welcome to Mrs. Kurko's Page! smiley

              
 I am one of the Title I reading specialist at Amelon Elementary.  This year I have the privledge to work with  Fourth Grade and Fifth Grade students!

I work daily with classroom teachers to best meet the needs of our students and accomplish the VA standards of Learning. (SOL)

I am very excited to work with your child this year on the following literacy components:

·         Reading:  Reading books on your child's instructional and independent reading level.  

·         Word Study: Sorting words by their sound and pattern  

·         Vocabulary:  In the upper grades we will work toward building a stronger vocabulary when reading and using context clues to figure out meaning

·         Comprehension: Understanding what is read and using our reading strategies

·         Fluency: Reading with speed and accuracy

I strongly encourage you to READ and WRITE daily with your child to help reinforce sight words, comprehension, fluency, and to help your child become more confident in the writing process. 

TOGETHER we can help your child reach his/her full potential in the learning process and become confident, successful readers!  

 If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach me in the following ways:
