I have taught reading throughout my entire teaching career at the primary level. I'm familiar with the five components of reading: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Comprehension, Fluency, and Vocabulary. I've also used research based diagnostic instruments such as the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) and Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA), and computer based websites for reading.
