Last night, I visited Confessions of a Homeschooler and noticed information about The Ultimate Blog Party! I thought I’d give it a try. If you blog, I would encourage you to do it as well.
So what is This Reading Mama all about? My name is Becky and my passion is teaching and living literacy. While teaching music in a private Christian school, I was introduced to the Montessori approach. I went on to teach K-1 in a public school, implementing as much Montessori as I could; while getting my M.Ed. in Reading. After having children, I became a private reading tutor out of my home. I never thought I’d be homeschooling, but here I am…and enjoying spending this precious time with my three blessings. I just recently started a blog to encourage other mamas (homeschooling or not) that they can teach their children to read and write…and it doesn’t have to be the equivalent of pulling teeth!
Most of what you’ll find on my blog fits into these categories:
- building phonics & word knowledge (Word Study)
- building sight word vocabulary
- spelling and writing strategies
- comprehension strategies and activities
- Teaching Tips each Tuesday for mamas regarding literacy
I hope you’ll come visit and decide to join This Reading Mama on a literacy journey!
