San Domenico is excited to offer a two week Reading Camp this summer! The SD reading camp is designed to support incoming first or second grade students who want to strengthen their skills in reading and spelling. Every day students will engage in a daily Reading Workshop where the teacher will foster a lifelong love for reading. Students will learn to “get lost in their books,” while practicing decoding, fluency, and reading comprehension skills. Additionally, students will develop and reinforce foundational skills such as letter sounds, letter formation, sight word recognition, sentence fluency, and spelling consistencies. The class will use strategies that are fun, multi-sensory, and sequential in nature. This class will be taught by a qualified reading specialist.
Kristin loves being part of the San Domenico community and has been one of our first grade teachers since 2017. She received her Masters in Teaching from the University of San Francisco in 2012. Because of her love of teaching reading, she went back to USF in 2018 to obtain her certification as a Reading Specialist. Kristin has previously taught first grade and kindergarten at Convent of the Sacred Heart and Cascade Canyon. Creating a warm classroom environment is important to her as she wants her first graders to feel safe, happy, and excited to learn. She is passionate about instilling a foundational love for reading, writing, and math in her students. It gives her true joy to see her students engaging deeply with what they are learning and working together to build strong understandings. She strives to make learning meaningful for her students so they can apply new knowledge and insights beyond the walls of the classroom. In her spare time, she loves to go hiking, walk the beach, and spend time with her family.
