Leveled Literacy Intervention

L.L.I. Newsletter for 5K


I'd like to introduce myself to you since I'll soon be instructing your child in a small reading group each day. I'm LInda Thoe, the Reading Specialist at Merton Primary.

I'm married and we live in Slinger. I have four grown children and five grandchildren. At home, we have three lovable Shi-tzuh dogs, a vegetable garden, and a wide variety of perennial gardens.

In 1997, I earned my Masters degree in Reading from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I received Reading Recovery (R.R.) training in 2000-2001. So, this is my 15th year at Merton and my 15th year teaching R.R. year (grade one students one-on one).

I love working with all these young readers! I KNOW that reading is the MOST important academic skill they will ever learn in school. I truly want your child to become a successful reader who LOVES to read and write.

We CAN be successful working together (parents, child, classroom teacher, myself, and any other-needed personnel). I look forward to meeting with you and working with your child. I'll soon be sending future newsletters, so please watch for them.

Please call me, or send a note with your child, if you have any questions or concerns. The school number is 262-538-2227 (X 3034). My home phone is: 262-644-5656.
