I believe children need flexibility and fun in order to dig in and grow as readers. I believe not all children learn from sitting in a desk, and it is my job as an educator to find out the best solution for them. In the reading club, students set goals as a group and help each other accomplish them. We usually set an individual goal and a reading goal and check in at the end of each reading club. Using the Orton Gillingham method, which utilizes the three learning pathways through which children learn—visual, auditory and kinesthetic, students get wiggly and sometimes messy! Students will learn to trust themselves and their friends as we practice encouraging one another. We will grow as a team. Kids will not only grow as more confident readers, but they will learn to LOVE reading! This is not just for students who need extra support, but all levels of readers who want to grow and have a blast with their friends!
Sometimes students need individual tutoring to tackle specific learning goals. It is just as fun as reading club with a more individual focus. Students will set their own goals and check in on them weekly.
This is for little ones 0-5 and their caregivers to build relationships and strengthen their early reading muscles while diving into the building blocks of early literacy: read, write, sing, play, and talk. Ukulele included!
