Intervention Team Updates

on December 15, 2015

Teaching Reading in Small Groups – Book Study Group: We had our first meetings in early December. Both the morning and afternoon groups had great discussions! We talked about the first chapter, watched a short video about reading workshop and compared it to our own classrooms. We are meeting again in January. If you are interested in joining us it is never to late, just let me know. 🙂

LLI Study Group – Another opportunity for learning will be beginning in January. We will be gathering teachers from Farley and Country who want more information on the new intervention curriculum (Leveled Literacy Intervention or LLI), want to learn strategies for helping their struggling readers and improve their own teaching. This study group is open to everyone, please let me know if you are interested in joining.

Intervention Team – There have been many changes to our intervention team over the past month. Our current team includes myself, Heidi Pankow (when she returns from kindergarten :)), Missy Zettel, Linda Skinner and Stacie Williams. Our team will spend January focusing on our winter benchmark AimsWEB data collection (testing window is Jan 6-24th). Once we have the updated benchmark data we will move forward with planning intervention services for the remainder of the year. Thanks for being flexible and understanding during this time of transition.
