Deerfield Loves to Read


    Welcome to Deerfield Elementary School's Reading Department!
       Your child may be receiving Academic Intervention Services (A.I.S.) in Language Arts during the school day. For Grades 1-5, a letter will be sent home notifying you if services are necessary. Kindergarten students will be rotated on an as-needed basis. Usually, students are pulled out of their classroom in small groups to work with a reading teacher. Occasionally, the reading teacher may push-in to the classroom to provide additional support. Frequent communication between the reading and classroom teachers is an integral part of our program.


       Mrs. Lisa Della Posta and Mrs. Zabek will work with students in Grades 1-5 on Language Arts activities to strengthen their reading and writing skills.  Ms. Mayo will work with the Kindergarten on basic Early Literacy Skills, while Mrs. Spina will work with First Grade on basic Literacy Skills.  In addition, she will work with students needing to improve their fluency by using 1 minute timed passages.
       We hope our website will provide helpful hints for parents to utilize at home with their children. Check out the links on the sidebar for additional information. Please note that there are links to contact us with questions regarding our program.
