I am an early reading specialist from Bozeman Montana USA.
My contribution to the field of early reading instruction is a well-defined sequence of skills and practice activities that allow a child to move successfully toward early reading mastery. This sequence is my guide to knowing where the individual child is in his understanding of the reading process and what he needs to work on next.
The materials I have created incorporate the sequence, repetition, structure and hands-on success young children need to achieve reading success.
It is my desire to create a heightened awareness of the need for systematic, explicit and developmentally appropriate reading instruction for Pre-K, Kindergarten and at-risk learners. With sequence and structure and hands-on materials, we can dramatically increase the reading readiness of children before they enter first grade and thus drastically reduce the instances of reading failure among first graders.
