Welcome to Reading Recovery at Riverside Elementary!
Reading Recovery is a short-term intervention for first graders having extreme difficulty with early reading and writing. Specially trained teachers work individually with students in daily 30-minute lessons lasting 12 to 20 weeks. After a full series of lessons, about 75% of these formerly lowest students reach grade-level standard (Reading Recovery Council of North America).
A huge factor in the success of your child is also the home/school connection. Your child will be working hard at school this year, and it is vital that they have your support at home. Reading Recovery homework will come home nightly. Please take the time to complete these short activities with your child each night. I also encourage parent involvement at school. If your child is part of the Reading Recovery program, please feel free to contact me so we can schedule a time for you to observe a lesson! I know we are going to have a great year at Riverside and I look forward to achieving success for your child together!
Looking forward to a great school year!
