Intervention Updates

on October 5, 2015

Happy October! It’s hard to believe that we are already into the 2nd month of school! K-1 intervention is up and running and 2-3 will have their data meetings this week. Here is what’s new down in the intervention center.

LLI Program (Leveled Literacy Intervention)

Part of the outcome of the RTI team’s work last year was the recommendation for a standards-based, cohesive intervention curriculum. The LLI or Leveled Literacy Intervention program for K & 1 was selected over the summer to meet this recommendation.

What is LLI?

LLI is a Fountas and Pinnell program that focuses on strategic intervention for struggling readers. Students meet in a small group (3 students) 5 days a week with an intervention teacher for 30 minutes. They receive a focused lesson that includes reading leveled texts, rereading familiar texts, phonics/word work, writing about their reading and letter/word work.

How does LLI fit in with MTSS, ICT and trying to align the two?

This is the question we are trying to wrap our brains around. First, we want to collect some data in small scale. So Les and I are each trying this curriculum out with 1 small group. I am trying this out with some students from Hufnagel’s room and Les is working with students in Kathy Norris’s room. We are going to collect data and compare this intervention to the other things that we are doing and see how things stack up.

Want to know more?

If you are interested in the LLI program or want to see what it’s all about let me know. You would be more than welcome to come watch me teach a lesson or come down and poke around the materials.
