I'm Melissa Bell the Kindergarten Reading Specialist. This is my 12th year at Brookside.  I will be supporting the Kindergarten Teachers with any struggling readers they might have.  I love working with Kindergarten and helping these young students to be the best readers possible.  I have four children of my own. I also have a rescue dog named Nala!

Looking forward to this new year and getting to know many of you


This month of February we continue to learn our letter sounds, beginning and ending sounds and the blending of our letter sounds to read words. We will be finishing up learning all of our Alphafriends. The paper books the children bring home should be practiced and kept in their shoeboxes. We move onto reading our Literature Books which are fiction and non-fiction stories. We have read one together so far and all the children seem to like them!
I am very pleased with the progress all children have shown so far this year!
Parents, please be sure to READ to your child every day - even 10 or 15 minutes a night can make a difference!
