Dobiszewski, Mrs. C.

Mrs. D. :  This is my 23rd year teaching in the public school system.  It is my 13th year teaching in the Long Hill Township Schools.  I have a BA in Psychology and certifications in elementary and special education. Additionally, I have level 1 certification in the Wilson Reading System. The Wilson Reading System is a multisensory reading program designed to help struggling readers and spellers. I look forward to a great year of learning with your child.
Please contact me by email: or by phone: 908-647-2312 ext. 2021.  
Wilson Class Description: I will meet with your child three times per week for Wilson Reading.  We will use many strategies to work on decoding and encoding skills.  Some strategies include tapping words, scooping syllables, and visualizing stories.

Wilson Homework: 
Your child will have homework one time a week. It will consist of a short workbook page designed to review the skills taught in that week's lesson.

BSI Class Description:
 It is the goal of Basic Skills Instruction (BSI) to fill in the gaps in your child's reading and writing.  I teach reading using a program called Fundations. Additionally, I push-in to the second-grade classrooms to support reading instruction in the classroom. 

BSI Homework: 
I encourage you to have your child read to you daily. A book may be read more that one time to improve sight word recognition and reading fluency. Also, read books to your child. Ask questions about the book and enjoy entering the world of reading with your child.

Current BSI News: 
We are reviewing types of syllables in preparation of combining syllables to make words like comment, postpone, and invite.
A closed syllable contains one vowel closed in by a consonant.  The vowel in a closed syllable has a short sound.
A closed syllable exception contains one of the following groups of letters:  ind, ild. olt, ost, and old.  These syllables look like closed syllables but the vowel says a long sound.
A vowel consonant e syllable has a vowel followed by a consonant and an e.  The e in a vowel consonant e syllable is silent.  The vowel has a long sound.
