This class is designed to improve the reading abilities of the students. A variety of strategies will be used to improve their reading comprehension, vocabulary, flunecy, and other reading strategies that research has shown effective.
This class will be using LLI Kits, a reading intervention curriculum . We will be working in small groups to provide the students with a more guided lesson based on those lesson plans. In addition, a certain number of reading comprehension and fluency assessments will be required every few weeks along with a certain number of self-paced iStation lesson each week.
- Access to Internet (WiFi)
- Earphones (optional, but helpful for watching videos and live class)
**When in person learning begins, the list will change; however, I will send parents/guardians that information when the time comes.**
