Dear Saint Luke Families,
My name is Alyssa Roher and I am the reading specialist at Saint Luke School. I have several years of experience working with students in grades K-8, and I am state certified in literacy. I will be providing pull-out and push-in literacy support for students needing academic intervention. I will be working with students 1:1 and in small groups.
I believe learning should be purposeful and fun! For early readers, I will be focusing on identifying letters and their sounds, sight words, fluency (good pacing and expression), and comprehension. For students who know their letters and sounds, I will be focusing on phonics (“word identification skills”- International Reading Association), sight words, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Please send in the following:
1 pack of 3x5 index cards
1 marble notebook
3 dry erase markers
Book of the month:
Today on Election Day by Catherine Stier is a wonderful book that is told from the children’s perspective. It’s through the children’s different voices that the reader learns about the different types elections that occur on Election Day.
I look forward to a great year working with you as we build a strong home-school connection! I will be working closely with the classroom teachers as we support our students. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 718.746.3833.
