Dear First Graders and Families,
I'm thrilled to be working with all of you this school year. I hope that you will fall in love with reading as we read many different types of books and talk about what we read.
Manville students in grades K-5 participate in a “push-in” intervention model of Literacy instruction. Mrs. Mazzariello is the interventionist in first grade. As part of her instruction, students participate in core instruction in the regular classroom every day during Language Arts Literacy. Students in need of assistance get daily help in small group reading and writing right in their own classrooms. Manville provides a team of Literacy Coaches to go into our elementary classrooms. Mrs Mazzariello is the Literacy Coach for grades K & 1. Literacy coaches work closely with groups of students while also demonstrating to classroom teachers the “Research-Based Best Practices” in the field of Literacy. Literacy Coaches also work with parents to provide afterschool and evening classes on how to best assist students at home with reading and writing.
