Ms. Giordano ASI Teacher

Hi, I am Mrs. Giordano and I want to welcome you to ASI. ASI stands for Academic Support Instruction. If your child is in ASI, I am here to help them in reading and or math. I push-into classrooms, as well as, pull small groups of students out into my classroom. The most effective teaching strategy is pulling your child into my classroom several times a week for short intervals of 20 minutes. The shorter time period and meeting with your child more frequently, really helps your child build on all of the skills they need to be more successful in the classroom. The repetition is crucial at this age level. I plan my small groups according to your child's specific needs. I look forward to working with you and your child during this school year to help them be the best student that they can be! Remember it is a team effort and all your support at home goes a long way in their success!!

 • Play who am I? For example, I rhyme with bed, I have 3 letters, and I

end in “d”.

 • Children go outside and practice writing their words with

chalk on the concrete.

 • Flashlight words - turn off lights. Tape words on the wall or ceiling. Use the

flashlight to shine on the word then read.

 • Children make their own word wall/dictionary using photocopied small sight

words and scrapbooks labeled with a letter of the alphabet on each page... can

be added to throughout the year.

 • Make words using play dough.

 • Beat the clock - how many times can a word be written in 1 minute etc

 • Play stepping stones - place words on the floor and children walk over them

saying the word as they go to get to the other side of the stream. Make words

using letter tiles -scrabble pieces

 • Make words using stencils.

 • Make words using alphabet stamps.

 • Make words using magnetic letters

 • Delicious Words -Write your words in whipped cream, peanut butter, or anything

you can eat

 • Good Clean Words -Write your words in shaving cream on a counter or some

other surface that can be cleaned safely

I will Zoom with students
each week... 
Remote Learning: 
This week the assignments for Fundations will be posted daily. Remember your child does my assigned Fundations work, not their classroom teacher's assignment. 
Check out the Fundations phonics videos attached to my link in the above green box. Your child can alternate activities and just watch a few videos each day to change it up!!!
Text me if needed at any time....
