Title I Reading: Kindergarten, Second & Third Grades

I am the Title I reading specialist working with kindergarten, second and third grades at Amelon.  

I work daily with teachers to plan and team-teach the VA English (Reading) SOLs.  Click below to see the kindergarten, second and third grade English SOLs.                                                                

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 vowel patterns  

·        Comprehension: Understanding what is read

·        Fluency: Reading with speed and accuracy.

     The county has developed benchmarks for students to work towards meeting each nine weeks.  Click below to see the kindergarten, second and third grade benchmarks.

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:
