Reading Recovery is a one time, short term reading and writing intervention for selected (*) first grade students that can run from 12 to 20 weeks. Students in this program meet daily with a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher for a one-on-one 30 minute lesson which includes reading, writing and letter/word work.
The Reading Recovery teacher models various procedures to teach and support each student’s use of strategic behaviors to help him/her problem solve text. The goal is for each child to be able to work independently and successfully within grade level reading and writing expectations.
(*) Students are identified for Reading Recovery support based on early student assessment and District 196 guideline qualifying scores.
