Welcome to Mrs. Laurie’s Reading Room

The Reading Support Program at Knollwood helps develop essential reading skills. As the building Reading Specialist, I work with children who may need an extra boost. The Reading Support Program allows students to enter and exit based on their success in acquiring skills. Together with the classroom teacher, students are continuously monitored. This shows us how well the students are applying targeted skills while reading. If you have a special question or concern you would like me to address in the area of literacy, please e-mail me at [email protected].
