I am Mrs. Concepcion, the reading teacher at St. Agnes School. I work with small groups of children from Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. The materials my reading groups use are crafted to support, challenge, reinforce, and encourage success for the readers as they move to higher levels of independence and achievement. Emphasis is placed on phonics, vocabulary development, oral reading, comprehension, and writing skills.
My hope is to just not teach my students the mechanics of reading, but to encourage them to be life long readers.
