• Reading Recovery Works!

    • Reading Recovery is a thoroughly researched and proven early literacy intervention for the lowest-achieving first graders.
      Individual students work one-to-one with a specially trained teacher for only 12 to 20 weeks and receive daily 30-minute lessons.
      After a full series of lessons, about 72% of students achieve grade-level standard.

    Fountas and Pinnel Leveled Literacy (LLI)

    The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System(LLI) is an intensive, small-group, supplementary literacy intervention for students who find reading and writing difficult. The goal of LLI is to lift the literacy achievement of students who are not achieving grade-level expectations in reading. The LLI systems are designed to:

    • Advance the literacy learning of students not meeting grade-level expectations in reading;
    • Deepen and expand comprehension with close reading;
    • Elevate the expertise of teachers;
    • Increase reading volume by engaging students in large amounts of successful daily reading;
    • Increase student engagement with books that build knowledge;
    • Intervene with small groups of struggling readers to maximize growth;
    • Meet the needs of struggling readers; and
    • Monitor student progress.
