Literacy Groups

I can’t wait to share with you the new literacy program that will be taking place in grade 3! As a grade level, we have found that we have many students at different reading levels in our classes.

In my own class, I have a few students at a grade five reading level, some who are at a grade one level and the rest spaced out in between. I have found the variety of levels to be a challenge in order to meet the needs of everyone in my class.

At our school, we have 7 classes of grade 3 students. We have decided to create levelled reading groups in order to target the needs of the students. Each teacher will be taking on a select reading level group so that they can implement strategies with those readers. We are involving the librarian (who will be taking the highest levelled readers) as she has set up a specific program for them. We are also involving our literacy coach who will be taking the lowest set of readers as she can use her intervention strategies for those students.

We will be meeting twice in our 6 day cycle and I cannot wait to see the difference it will make in our students!
