Mrs. Maggie Harrison McCartt
Hello Grandview Eagles!
My name is Maggie Harrison McCartt and I am the K-3 Special Education Interventionist here at Grandview!
I am excited to spend this year growing with your students and discovering the most effective way to help them learn and succeed. This is my first year at Grandview, as I just moved from teh Boston area. I cannot wait to see all of the amazing things we accomplish together this year.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns. My email is: email@example.com
We know that we are experiencing uncertain times, and we are working to bring our students comfort and routine by providing activities and lessons for them to do each day. Please be patient as we are navigating the new world of remote teaching and learning. All of your students teaachers will be updating there websites and sending out weekly email communications. During this time, please check in with your general education teachers website to stay current with all of their daily communitications and recommended assignments. If at anytime you have any questions or concerns about your students IEP or accomodations please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have listed / linked a few websites that will provide extended practice with passage reading and sight words. My suggestion would be to work on fluency reading one day and then work on reading comprehension one day. By alternating these two skills, throughout the week, your student will be getting the most out of these passages. The directions are listed below.
Fluency Reading: Set a timer for one minute. Have student read as many sight words or words from a passage as they can in that amount of time. If they mispronunce a word, you can circle it and discuss it after their time is up.
Reading Comprehension (Passage Reading): Have students read entire passage. Once they have finished they can give a brief summary or have a discussion with you about the passage.
Writing: Summary writing is always a great practice. Challenge your student to follow this format and wite a 3-4 sentence summary explaining what they have read!
I just read about ( ) and how ( ).
As always, reading any right level book is always a great choice!
