Early Intervention in Reading Program
The Early Intervention in Reading program is designed for Grade 1 and Grade 2 students. It provides the extra support that some students need in learning to read and write. The literacy teacher, along with the Grade 1 and 2 teachers, gives the observational survey to all Grade 1 students and to all Grade 2 students who are new to the school. Students who are identified as having some difficulty in reading or writing are then placed in small groups. Children selected for this program receive a daily half hour of additional reading and writing instruction under the direction of the literacy teacher.
