Reading Recovery Program

Dr. Marie Clay, a New Zealand educator, developed Reading Recovery as a short term intervention for children who have the lowest achievement in literacy learning after one year of school.

We have a trained Reading Recovery specialist teacher working with our Grade 1/2 team.  

Children on the Reading Recovery Program meet daily with the Reading Recovery teacher for a thirty minute lesson. During this time, the children develop effective reading and writing strategies in order to work within an average range of classroom performance. The length of time a child is on the Reading Recovery Program is between 12 to 20 weeks.
