April 16 2017 Reading Newsletter
Greetings from the Land of OZ!
I once knew a student who was not going to pass 6th grade-no way. He had untreated ADD, and it had gotten in the way of his learning. His skills were years below his peers. I ran the In School Suspension room and also taught classes at the same time. The principal was convinced to put this kid, who was quite disruptive in class, with me the full day during second semester. I liked the kid and wanted to see him achieve.
New Practice Readers helped him with his reading comprehension, as did daily reading and journal entries about his reading. The following year, he was very successful. It is easier to be appropriate in class when you are able to keep up with your classmates. I think of him often, and I hope that he is having a good life.
