Take Flight Student Update

(Dyslexia Therapy)

Your students are doing a great job while with me. So far they have learned:


what sequence means

what sounds d,t,p,b and i make

how to write all these letters in cursive

what syllables are

how to determine if a syllable is open or closed

that every syllable must have a vowel sound

that a vowel in a closed syllable is always short

Things to keep in mind:


  • I will be giving your students a grade in spelling and grammar.
  • Students do not need to make these things up if they are taught while they are gone.
  • If at all possible, spelling and grammar should be taught to your class while these students are out. This will minimize the amount of content they are missing.
  • Students are still responsible for reading, discussion, and writing assignments.
  • If your student has an IEP and is not longer going to Mrs. Norris because he/she is coming to me, please continue to follow the IEP modifications. I will be happy to help you determine what to expect from your student and how to give your student a grade.
