• Reading:

    This year we will be using Fountas and Pinnell's Leveled Literacy Intervention program (LLI) in combination with Reader's Workshop.  This program is designed to give support to readers who need a more specifically designed approach to learning.  We will be using LLI in small group settings, allowing for direct instruction.  This will also allow your student and I to adjust the instruction to their own needs, and focus on the areas they need the most.
    Topics covered in LLI include:
    • Comprehension Skills
    • Vocabulary Building
    • Word Work (phonics/syllable work)
    • Text Structures
    • Print Features
    • Discovering Themes
    For Writing, we will be using a mix of LLI and Writer's Workshop.  Writer's Workshop is a program that combines whole-group mini-lessons with time for individual and small group learning opportunities.  We will be examining different writing topics, including narrative, opinion, and informative styles.  Students will learn through both teacher-directed lessons, as well as their own personal writing journals.
