     Welcome to Mrs. Runco's page!


Hello and welcome to Mrs. Runco's room!  Please check here for dates and important information about Room 301!  
A little about Mrs. Runco...
I am a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I am married and have a daughter and son.  They keep us busy!   I love cheering on the Steelers and spending time with my family.  I love teaching kindergarten and seeing the children grow throughout the year.  Each day we are busy reading, writing and becoming mathematicians!  


This year the students will be learning many different things. In ELA, they will learn various letter/sound combinations to help them decode and spell words in phonics and spelling class. The students will work to improve their reading fluency and also learn reading strategies to enable them to increase their comprehension. 

Skills will be taught through whole group instruction and small group instruction through The Daily Five, a management structure designed to fully engage all students in reading and writing. The components of the Daily Five are: Read to Self, Read to Someone, Listen to Reading, Word Work and Work on Writing. Research shows the more you read (or write) the better reader (or writer) you become. So we will be working on building our STAMINA (yes your child will be able to define this word for you,) so we can become fluent and confident readers

In math, students will build mathematical understanding using models, manipulatives, pictures and symbols. Students will learn numbers, addition, subtraction, 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes, measurement and classification. You'll be amazed at your little mathematicians!  

Throughout the school year, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email me at
