My name is Terri Green, and this is my 16th year teaching Reading in Milford.
I received my B.S. in Education from Boston University, and my Masters in
Reading from the University of Bridgeport. I've taught 4th grade in public
school and kindergarten in private school.
I reside in Fairfield with my husband and my dog, Maggie. My son and
daughter are both working in New York City. Yeah, no more college payments!
I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, swimming, traveling and golf during my
precious leisure time.
Working with your children and helping them construct meaning from text gives
me great professional satisfaction.
Mission For The Class
- What strategies can I use to improve my child's comprehension?
- What can I do to build my child's vocabulary?
- How can I improve my child's fluency?
- Should my child read on the weekends?
Visualization, making connections, and asking questions during reading are a
good start. Story maps, and mental mapping help to. Get in touch for more
You can help your child learn just by talking, since your vocabulary is larger
than your child's. Talking about current events featured on T.V. news or in
the newspaper will not only boost your child's vocabulary, but also build his
or her knowledge about the world all around.
Read, and reread texts at your child's independent level! Make sure reading
level is not too difficult for your child.
AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! WHENEVER POSSIBLE!
