Hello! My name is Dawn Rossell, and I am the Reading Specialist at Peter Muschal School. I provide extra support to 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students who need extra support with their reading. During the month of September we will be testing students for the program using a program called DIBELS. Students who are identified as needing extra support will receive notification through the mail. Parents will be asked to either accept or decline services.
At the end of the month, Basic Skills students will work in small groups every day for about 30 minutes. During these small groups, I teach students skills and strategies while reading books on their reading level. The Basic Skills Reading Program uses the Fundations Program by Wilson and Leveled Literacy Instruction by Fountas and Pinnell. I am looking forward to an exciting school year and providing your child with the support he/she needs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. And don't forget, READ! READ! READ!
