    I am a Title I Reading Specialist at Memorial.  I work with all of Kindergarten in the morning and two of the four 2nd grade classes in the afternoon. 
    Kindergarten:
      We work in small groups that are based on needs.  The groups are typically have no more than 4 students in a groups.  Throughout the year I work on skills that students need to become better readers and writers.  I begin the building a strong phonological awareness. This includes working on recognizing rhyming, clapping out syllables in words, and identifying beginning sounds to name a few.  I also incorporate letter and sounds identification practice.  Once students have a good handle of most of these skills we work on cvc words and sight words.  Then I begin to introduce Guided Reading.   While working on any of the skills listed above, I try to do a lot of practice and try to make it hands on as much as possible to help the students remember . 
     
     
    2nd Grade- (Mrs.Campenni and Mrs. Belles)
     
      As we begin the reading block, students will be grouped based on need and skill.
      During the year, students will receive support with a program called Leveled Literacy.  This program allows students to increase their reading skills and strategies using books and materials to reinforce skills taught in the small group.
