​I am excited to begin another year of Reading Recovery intervention in First Grade! Students selected for Reading Recovery intervention receive one-on-one literacy instruction for 30 minutes daily. Intervention can last as long as 20 weeks in order to accelerate progress in reading and writing and help each student reach grade level before exiting the program. 4 students receive intervention in the Fall and 4 more in the Spring. Selection is determined through literacy assessments and evaluation. Consistent attendance in school is a necessity for the success of the intervention and nightly reading homework is expected to be completed.

    I will begin screening First Grade candidates for Reading Recovery the first week of school. Selection will be completed by the second week and the 4 students chosen for fall intervention will begin lessons by the third week of school. Parents will be notified of selection prior to lessons and are welcome to meet with me and observe a lesson.
