Welcome to Mrs. Melillo’s Classroom!
“Our children are here to stay
But our babies are not, I’m sorry to say
They grow and learn everyday
In the most remarkable and intriguing way…”My classroom reflects what I believe in when it comes to literacy. I believe children should be exposed to quality literature. They are more likely to pick up a book and read it or write a wonderful story if they are exposed to great literature . I believe each child should have a writer’s notebook where they can explore their own topics and create wonderful, creative or factual pieces of work. Writers should write about their own experiences adding all the joy, laughter or even frustration that goes with it. We will be doing all of that in ILA this year! We will be exploring different genres of literature. We will learn and perfect our writing in many styles. I hope you will enjoy learning and much as I will enjoy teaching! It is going to be a fun year!I will generally assign homework Mondays through Thursdays along with long term reading and writing assignments. Homework assignments will be discussed and given in class and can also be found on google classroom. I believe in strong home- school communication. The best way to reach me is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you!
