Reading Recovery is an intensive, 20 week,  early intervention program which provides  first grade students with daily, individual, 30 minute lessons.

Guided Reading Plus groups are offered to students who are in need of literacy support in first and second grades, 4-5 days a week.

Reading Recovery Lessons consist of:

• Reading several familiar books
• Reading a story that was read for the first time the day before
• Working with letters and/or words using magnetic letters
• Writing a sentence or two
• Assembling a cut-up sentence
• Reading a new book

Guided Reading Plus groups in first grade look very similar to Reading Recovery, except in a group setting.  Second grade groups work with higher level texts, developing comprehension strategies and refining reading and writing skills.  

Each day, first and second grade students bring home a bag with several books that have been read during their lessons. Parents are asked to listen to their children read daily and support them with their literacy learning.

Home Connections:
Reports of progress are sent home in your child’s report card each ranking period. Literacy teachers meet with parents at conference time to discuss each child’s progress. In addition, Albion’s Title 1 team offers a variety of events to support literacy and math within the home.  

A fall information night is our first annual event. This year, parents will meet to discuss our Title 1 School-Parent compact while students hear a read aloud book with Mrs. Crothers. Then, we will all gather in the library for BINGO!   We hope you can join us on October 17th from 6-7 PM! 

We are planning on having an author join us for our second family event during the winter. More information will be forthcoming. 

Lastly, a summer kick-off program will be held in early June.  In a scavenger hunt format, students, siblings and parents will leave with activities and resources to use at home to help their children avoid the “summer slide”.

Please contact me with any questions you may have.
Happy Reading!
