Mrs. Lori Gamber
Welcome to Garrettford Elementary School! As a Reading Specialist and member of Garrettford's Literacy Team, I am happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about Reading or MTSS supports.
I am also available to the families of my students in each grade level group. Reading with your children is the best part of my day!
The single most important thing you can do for and with your child is to share a good book and instill the love of reading! Readers develop vocabulary and background knowledge that will help them learn in the classroom.
Let's have a great year!
Garrettford has a home reading program for all students. As part of each student's homework, families are asked to read together and log time spent reading. This year, to increase students' knowledge of genre and increase interest in different books, we are highlighting a different genre each month. Reading is not limited to the genre of the month, but families are encouraged to explore different books.
September was Realistic Fiction.
October is Folk Tales, Fairy Tales, Tall Tales, and Fables.
