    Dear Students and Families,                              Mrs. Allen

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! As one of your campus Reading Specialists my goal is to provide reading support for students in need for grades K-3 through small group intervention at your student's appointed MTSS small group work time.  For third grade this year I do have one regular small group as well as a group of students that are woking in the System 44 software.  Students in the System 44 program work on the computer for 20 minutes (working on phonics skills) and then have a small group instruction time with me for 20 minutes.  I'm also the teacher for Read 180 which is our reading support program for students in grades 4-6.  I work with Read 180 students during their MTSS time slot M-F and they have 20 minutes of small group time with me as well as 20 minutes of software work time on the Read 180 Universal program or System 44 program. On Fridays those students also have 20 minutes of independent reading with a good fit book.

    If you have any questions please contact me through my email: diane.allen@dvusd.org and I will send you a link and password for a Zoom meeting.  All students that work with me always get a letter for parents/guardians that informs you of the services that you child is receiving and a parent signature is required to show that you are aware of the extra reading instruction and support that your child is getting through these intervention groups and classes.

    Looking forward to a great new school year! 

    Diane Allen
