Reading Intervention & Enrichment at McIntire School

At McIntire School, reading progress is screened and monitored throughout the academic year to identify students who are at-risk and students who need enrichment. Additional individual assessments may be given to determine skill deficits and strengths to assist in developing a focus for instruction or to provide additional interventions and enrichment.

A variety of reading interventions are offered during the school day to assist students. The purpose of these reading interventions is to accelerate the student’s reading progress and allow him/her to meet grade level expectations.

This year Ashley Gravemann, Megan Metz, Kathy Moore, and Marla Reynolds will be working with us in a variety of capacities helping to provide reading and writing interventions and enrichment to the students in our classrooms. These may consist of one-on-one instruction, in a small group setting or during a “push in” time when the reading teachers come and assist with reading and writing strategies within the classroom.

Classroom teachers and reading teachers, teachers are meeting together last week to plan and to assure that all McIntire students get the intervention and enrichment they need in reading.
