We're Busy as Bees!

Busy Bees: Kindergartners learning to Read!

Happy New Year!

Hi, Parents of Kindergartners that I serve in Reading Club!

Testing is completed. Each one of your students have grown. I'm very excited about the growth of each Kindergartner that I serve.

I will resume teaching this week (the week of February 2, 2016.)

What Mrs. Bowyer is Doing!

I create daily lessons that are designed to teach to each child's academic needs and skill deficits in reading (and in math).

I teach these lessons explicitly. If your student continues to struggle, I change the intervention or repeat the instruction until your child "gets it". I am continually collaborating with your child's classroom teacher. She knows what I am teaching and how I am teaching it.

Most of my students see me every day. A few students see me every other day.

What the "Busy Bees" (the children) need to do!

1. Come to Reading Club ready to listen and follow directions!

2. Stay focused. Try very hard to listen to the teacher and don't be distracted.

3. Be willing to work with a partner in a peaceful and fair way.

4. When "homework" is given, the children need to do the homework that evening. It's guaranteed to be fun and parent-friendly!

What Parents and Caregivers Can do!

1. Stay in touch with Mrs. Bowyer via phone calls or email. I will be happy to give you my personal phone number.

2. Look for homework from Mrs. Bowyer. It won't come every day. It is guaranteed to be fun and parent-friendly.

3. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO - Read to your child at least 4 times a week for 20 - 30 minutes each time. Sit close to your child. Point to the words as you read. Make it fun!
