I am so glad you’re here!
If you’re a classroom teacher, homeschooling parent, reading specialist, or you simply want to supplement what your child is learning in school, you’re in the right place. Within this site, you will find activities for children, resources for parents, crafts, activity sheets, story books, chapter books and activity books and sometimes even parenting advice.
I am a mother of 3: Alexandra 22, Julianna 20 and Salvi 11. I am currently the owner/Principal of a private school in Gloucester, Massachusetts. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, and Master’s Degree in School Administration. I also have been taught as a Reading Specialist with both Wilson Reading and Orton Gillingham.
My passion is to help children learn to read. Let’s face it………Success in life begins with reading. But, did you know that: * Four out of ten children will fail to meet basic reading ability standards without extra reading help? * Six out of ten will not meet “proficiency” without help? Sadly, many children fail to become proficient readers — they are under so much pressure to keep up with the curriculum content that they never really master the basics of reading — effortless decoding and strong working memory. These basic skills are needed for reading to be “automatic.” For many of these children reading is a chore throughout their school careers and sadly, they never learn to read for enjoyment. Don’t worry. Take a deep breath. I am here to help you navigate through the task of developing a successful reader.
Go to my video section and let your child start with video one. These short videos demonstrate how to help your child read. Included with each video is a link to a craft or assignment to complete. It’s simple and easy and just like being in a classroom.
Or you can come to my location at 16 Gibbs Hill Drive, Gloucester, Massachusetts for a private session.
