Reading Recovery is a program for first graders who are in need of extra help in learning to read and write. Selected students have 30 minutes of individual instruction each day. Reading Recovery teachers have received special training to help children who are beginning readers and writers. The goal of the program is to help the selected students become average readers and writers. As students reach this goal, they are exited from the program and new students are admitted.
The components of the Reading Recovery program are: fluent reading and writing, letter and word recognition, hearing sounds in words, and reading and writing strategies.
Parent involvement with the program is critical. Parents must help their children with homework each night.
The Reading Recovery program has been in District 196 since 1992. During that time it has benefited many students. If you have any questions regarding Reading Recovery, contact the Red Pine Reading Recovery staff.
