MEET

MS. KELLEY 

I am the founder of Fishhawk Kids Learn to Read and will be your child's teacher for the next couple of months. I attended the University of Colorado and graduated with my B.S. in Biochemistry with a focus on speech and hearing sciences. I worked as an intern in the speech therapy field, then moved onto audiology. While being in the schools working with children, I eventually found my passion, which is teaching. I have always loved the Montessori method so I enrolled my children into Montessori schools, which turned out to be the best decision for our family. My children and I all learned the foundational skill of reading via the Montessori Method and I'm excited to share the same foundational skills with your child. I've spent over 15 years in a classroom setting as a lead teacher and received my diploma from North American Montessori in 2000. The language aspect of Montessori has always been my favorite to teach so I thought I would bring it into my home Montessori "classroom" and focus on teaching 3-12 year olds how to read (or read more fluently) using the Montessori method.

FISHHAWK

KIDS LEARN 2 READ!

WELCOME TO 

FISHHAWK KIDS LEARN 2 READ uses The Montessori reading curriculum. The Montessori reading curriculum has three essential components: A strong foundation in phonics, comprehension based on visualization, and whole language, or learning to read for meaning and using context clues. 

Montessori Language: “The Sensitive Period”

 

The Montessori Curriculum is built around “sensitive periods”.   A time when children absorb information from their surroundings with little effort. During these periods their development will suddenly take a huge leap forward.

Maria Montessori believed that the initial six years of a child’s life are crucial for a child’s development. This explains why it’s so easy for young children to learn a second language. It’s much more difficult for older children and adults to learn a new language because they are no longer subconsciously absorbing the information.

The short length of this period means that early language learning is vital to give your child the very best start in life.

READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEPS TO BEGINNING PHONEMIC AWARENESS. (SMALL GROUPS: 5 MAX)

LEARN TO READ PROGRAM THAT TARGETS AGES 3-12 AND THOSE CHILDREN WHO ARE

TUTORING SERVICES

The focus of the next 4-7 weeks will be to help your child to succeed in learning to read.  

Reading and writing are sometimes taken for granted by adults who have mastered the skills—but looking at them from a child’s perspective, they are skills of Herculean difficulty. Literacy is a complicated, integrative process that involves the association of symbols with sounds, sounds with words, and words with ideas. It means learning to fluidly encode ideas into symbols and decode symbols into ideas. And, on top of everything, it involves acquiring complex physical production skills, such as the fine motor skills involved in writing with a pen or pencil.

The Montessori approach uses a distinct set of practices that nurture a positive, natural learning experience to teach reading and writing. The Montessori curriculum is thoughtfully built around teaching children the many elements of reading and writing one by one, in a way accessible to and enjoyable by a child.
