Reading Specialist: Ms. Greer

My office hours will be held every Monday morning from 9:30-11:00. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, please reach out by email. I will respond promptly to emails during my office hours to answer any questions you may have or we can schedule a zoom session during the week! I will also be participating during your classroom zoom sessions! I can't wait to see you all virtually and miss your smiling faces very much!


The tabs below will be updated weekly with OPTIONAL resources to support teachers and families with remote learning.

The resources below will be updated to provide additional support for the standards and skills being covered by classroom teachers. 
Reading Strategies:

Prompts to ask your child if they get stuck on a word while reading:

  • Look at the picture.
  • Get your mouth ready to say the first sound.  (example - /c/ in cat)
  • Stretch out the word. (example - /c/ /a/ /t/)
  • Look for known chunks in the word. (example - /ch/ and /at/ in chat)
  • Flip the vowel sound. (example - A can say /a/ like cat or /a/ like cake)
  • What word would make sense in this sentence?

After your child reads a book ask him/her questions (encourage your child to use text evidence when answering questions) such as:

  • Who were the characters? 
  • What are some similarities and differences among two characters in the book?
  • What was the setting? Did the setting change?
  • What was the conflict/problem?
  • What was the resolution/solution?
  • What was the most important event that happened? Why?
  • What did this story make you think of?
  • What surprised you in this text?
  • What questions do you have while reading this text?
