Reading Recovery

What is Reading Recovery? 

Reading Recovery is a reading and writing based intervention for year one and year two children between the ages of 5 years 9 months and 6 years 3 months. 

It involves a short series of one-to-one lessons for 30 minutes every day with a specially trained teacher, for upto 20 weeks. The programme is different for every child, starting from what the child knows and what he/she needs to learn next. The focus of each lesson is to comprehend messages in reading and construct messages in writing, learning how to attend to detail without losing focus on meaning.

The Lesson Series

Reading of familiar books

Running Record of their reading 

Word work 

Composing a message orally

The lesson includes alot of what the child knows and helps them to be able to become more confident in reading and writing.
