About Kerry


Bio

As a Kindergarten Teacher, I taught in a multicultural environment in Elmont. My greatest accomplishment with this class was seeing the students grow into beginning readers. I enjoy teaching the younger grades and challenging them. I truly enjoy teaching from picture books, which are rich in vocabulary and words that challenge the student. Some of the well-known authors I have used are Jan Brett, Marc Brown, Eric Carle, Tomie DePaola, Marcus Pfister and Audry Wood.

As a Kindergarten Teacher, I taught in a multicultural environment in Elmont. My greatest accomplishment with this class was seeing the students grow into beginning readers. I enjoy teaching the younger grades and challenging them. I truly enjoy teaching from picture books, which are rich in vocabulary and words that challenge the student. Some of the well-known authors I have used are Jan Brett, Marc Brown, Eric Carle, Tomie DePaola, Marcus Pfister and Audry Wood.

My goals for the Elementary student are to build on fluency - the act of reading in a smooth manner without hesitation, which builds over time; word recognition - sight words; and comprehension-understanding. My lessons involve sequencing events in a story, writing letters to a character in a story, writing about a favorite part in the story, most importantly being able to talk about the events that took place in the story, which is a big part of comprehension. Sequencing events in a story is a great way for a child to recall the events that took place in the story in sequential order. At this age, sentence strips are often used to sequence the story events. My goal is to help the child bring out the story, as if they are living through it. In addition, I had a second grade reading club, where the students were involved in all aspects of the story.

I am presently completing my last semester at Long Island University in Literacy and I have experience working with children from Pre-k to 6th grade. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
