Reading Intervention

The Reading Intervention program is designed to give students skill instruction in reading in a small group setting so they may become successful readers. Students work in a group comprised of up to 5 students. In some cases the intervention specialist comes into the classroom to work with the group, and in other cases the group of students works in a separate setting with the specialist.

The basis for selection for the Reading Intervention Program is test scores, teacher recommendation, and/or screening results. Instruction in Grades 2 and 3 is based on the Reading Mastery Corrective program, while instruction in Grades K – 2 is based on The Harcourt Brace Intervention program. All intervention reading instruction emphasizes phonics, comprehension, fluency, and sight words. Instruction is coordinated with the classroom teacher in order to achieve maximum student growth in reading. Students are asked to read a wide variety of both fiction and non-fiction books.

Parents are asked to spend time on a daily basis listening to their child read. It is imperative that students spend time reading outside of the classroom in order to develop fluency and achieve maximum growth.
