As we learned this past academic year, there is no quick fix to learning loss. It takes teamwork between parents, teachers and specialists like me to help children meet their academic and social-emotional learning goals!
I value teaching and learning through relationships, building habits that nurture a life long love for reading and writing, evidence based instruction and shaping growth mindsets. Here are examples of the activities I facilitate.
browsing for + reading high interest books
weekly pre-writing, writing and editing activities
vocabulary acquisition activities
Waiting, or giving children time will not teach them how to read or write better. The first step in planning an intervention is investigating what your child's holdbacks are. Then, it's time to build a systematic intervention made up of simple and structured evidenced based activities.
