Updates

AimsWEB winter 2016 is in the books! This would not have happened so efficiently without our awesome intervention team working diligently and the amazing classroom teachers being so flexible. Now that we have the data we are going to move forward next week planning our new interventions! We are excited to be meeting with all of the classroom teachers to begin this process.

LLI

Fountas and Pinnell’s LLI (Leveled Literacy Intervention) program is a leveled, focused and intense intervention program designed for our most struggling readers. This curriculum is designed to move students up to grade level as quickly as possible (18 – 24 weeks) by accelerating their growth. We currently own the orange (kindergarten, levels A to C) and green (1st grade, levels A to J) systems. The blue (2nd grade, levels C to N) and red (3rd grade, levels L to Q) systems have been ordered.  Many of you have opted to join the LLI study group to learn more about this new curriculum, but I also wanted to give everyone a brief overview of the curriculum before we meet next week.

The Orange, Green and Blue Systems

  • designed for groups of 3 similarly leveled students
  • 5 days a week, 30 minutes a day intervention lessons
  •  every lesson focuses on reading, writing and phonics/word study skills
  • students read a new text every day and get a copy of that text to take home and keep
  • focus on comprehension skills
  • opportunities for building vocabulary and oral language skills
  • explicit instruction in both fiction and nonfiction texts

The Red System

  • designed for groups of 3 similarly leveled students
  • 5 days a week, 45 minutes a day intervention lessons
  • every lesson focuses on reading, writing and phonics/word study skills
  • students read a new text every day and get a copy of that text to take home and keep
  • focus on comprehension skills
  • opportunities for building vocabulary and oral language skills
  • explicit instruction in both fiction and nonfiction texts
  • each level includes a week long novel study and a 5 test prep lessons

This is just a very brief overview. If you want to know more feel free to stop by the intervention center, join our LLI study group or check out this link.
