What happens during Reading Recovery lessons?

Reading Recovery lessons are a daily, intensive 30 minute teaching session where the teacher and child interact in reading and writing. This is in support of the literacy work done in the regular classroom.

· Re-reading familiar stories

· Reading a story that was read for the first time the day before without the teacher’s help (Running Record)

· Working with letters and words using magnetic letters

· Writing a story

· Assembling a cut-up story

· New book introduction and first read

During the lesson, the teacher teaches, demonstrates problem-solving strategies, and provides just enough support to help the child develop effective reading and writing strategies to work as independently as possible. Accelerated learning is possible because Reading Recovery teachers base their instruction on carefully documented daily observations of what each child already knows about reading and writing. This is an efficient approach that allows all future instruction to work from the child’s strengths.
