Welcome to Reading with Mrs. Minervini!
This year, I will be working with students in grades 1-5 in guided reading groups. Throughout the year, will engage in a variety of fiction and nonfiction stories to help increase reading skills and strategies and work towards using these skills independently.
The mission of the Hauppauge Elementary Reading Department is to provide the opportunity for our students to become readers, writers and lifelong learners in a safe, nurturing learning environment guided by the principles of balanced literacy and aligned with the New York State Common Core Standards. By using a variety of genres it is our goal to prepare all students to comprehend and analyze complex text and develop a love of literacy.
"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them" -Mark Twain
