Title 1 Reading Teacher

Welcome to Title 1 Reading

 I am the Title 1 Reading Teacher at Carver Elementary. I received my Bachelors of Science degree from East Carolina University in 1996. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Early/Middle Child Literacy and have the wonderful honor of teaching Reading throughout the day. It is my desire to empower each child to see reading not as a chore that must be conquered, but as a skill that is as natural as breathing. 
 If you have any questions or concerns about Reading or our Title 1 program, feel free to contact me.

Here are a few Reading Tips: 
-From Crayons and whimsy 2013 
1. Read with your child EVERY day. No exceptions.
2. When reading books {with less print} ask your child to point their finger to each word as you or your child reads. Establishing the
ability to track is important and your child will begin to understand that the word said is the word he or she sees.
3. Stop and ask questions as you read. What is happening? What may happen next? What do you notice in the pictures?
4. Give your child strategies to use when stuck on a difficult word
5. Read different types of books together- simple phonetic books your child can read independently as well as higher level books
your child can enjoy listening to. Remember your child can listen and comprehend texts at a much higher level than they can read.
Also change the genre of text: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.
6. Parents often ask... “My child wants to hear the same story over and over, is that okay?” YES it is! The idea is for your child to
enjoy time with books. Plus, by memorizing it over time your child will “read” it and this is building confidence AND your child will start to recognize words {as discussed in #2}
7. Let your child see you read.
8. Go to the library together.
9. Give your children books about their interests.
10. Keep books, magazines and newspapers around your home.
11. Download reading apps such as “Read Me Stories”
12. Keep it relaxed ? don’t ask your child to speed up and don’t stop them as they are reading.
