Gladwyne, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2018 -- Gladwyne Montessori offers unique literacy learning opportunities to help students refine their reading and writing abilities. The development of these fundamental skills encourage students to become lifelong learners.

The Gladwyne Montessori elementary program near Wayne, PA, supports students' literacy learning through three key methods: classroom teaching, small reading groups, and Writers' Workshop. First, teachers provide language lessons in the classroom. These lessons introduce students to key concepts and help them develop confidence as language learners.

This classroom language material is complemented by small group literacy instruction, which is offered by literacy specialists. In these lessons, students learn the skills and strategies needed to become effective readers. In small group settings, direct instruction focuses on comprehension, fluency, decoding, word study, and vocabulary development. Students demonstrate their understanding of text through art, drama, cooking, writing, and technology experiences. The ultimate goal of this small group instruction is to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills while instilling a love of reading.

In Writers' Workshop, Elementary students apply the knowledge they have gained in their language lessons and small group reading instruction. They learn to successfully communicate their own ideas through text while developing a unique voice and style. They learn the power of words — both in prose and poetry — to explain research, express opinions, share small moments, and entertain others.

Gladwyne Montessori combines the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori with modern technology to offer an incredible education to toddlers, pre-Kindergarten, and elementary-aged students. Its goal is to help each child become confident, curious, and academically accomplished.
