Dyslexia Therapy Class

September 12-16, 2016

We are getting back into the groove of things and adjusting to our new schedules. Most of our dyslexia classes are a little longer this year, so that is fantastic news!!!


All classroom teachers have been given copies of their students' accommodations, so on a daily basis, all of my students are getting whatever accommodations were decided upon in their last 504 or ARD meetings. You will be contacted when it is time for your child's annual 504 or ARD meeting to discuss future accommodation needs.


Your child did not attend dyslexia classes on Friday, September 16 as I was testing all day. We will get back to business on Monday. Have a GREAT weekend!

My Conference Time

Just a reminder that my conference time is 9:50 - 10:40. Please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.

What have we been doing?

1st grade

We are continuing to work on Phonemic Awareness, as well as procedures. We will start the Take Flight curriculum in the next few days. Look for some cursive handwriting practice to come home. In addition, we are working on alphabetizing, accent, and before and after.

2nd grade

Second graders are still working on getting our procedures down, so it has taken us a few days to get through Lesson 1. We are working on p and b (lip puffers), and recognizing the shape, sound, feel, and learning how to write them in cursive. We are also working on alphabetizing, accent, and before and after.

3rd grade

Third grade has been working on reading and spelling words that contain the letter a when it comes after the letter w. Did you know that the letter w had NO sound? Its only a lip rounding. And did you know that the letter a usually sounds like a short o (as in "octopus") when it follows w?

4TH Grade

Fourth grade has been working on reading and spelling words with digraph ee, as well as the "fat puff" sounds of digraph ch and j.

5th grade

Fifth grade has been reading and spelling with diphthongs ou and ow, as well as words that contain the letter a before l (it sounds like (au). We are also practicing syllable division pattern, focusing on V/CV.
