Intervention 1

Intervention 1 is specifically designed to provide rigorous, highly effective, small group instruction to students struggling with foundational literacy skills in Grades K-2. Grounded in the latest intervention research, and aligned with Letterland's award-winning Kindergarten and Grade One curriculum, it is optimally designed for both strategic and intensive instruction either as part of the Letterland program or as a stand-alone intervention.

Screening, Placement and Diagnosis

Clear guidance on screening and placement will identify students who need small group literacy intervention. Five criterion-referenced assessments for diagnosis and grouping considerations will ensure maximum progress.

Differentiated Instruction

The pull-out Blueprints form the framework of your daily lessons and allow you to match your student's needs. The Strategic and Intensive Blueprints include brief instruction for each activity and include scaffolding suggestions to provide more support when needed and more challenge when children are ready.

Step-by-Step Lessons

Structured lessons feature multi-sensory phonics strategies with opportunity for phonemic awareness. Vocabulary development, regular text-based practice, comprehension support and rapid word recognition are all integrated into the lessons which will motivate students to master literacy skills.

Monitoring Progress

Checkpoints, Fluency Lists and Lesson Logs will enable you to make data-based decision making on instructional pacing. Section Assessments are criterion-referenced with target scores to help you decide if students are ready to progress.

Supporting Products

Lots of reading practice with sentences to build and read, Phonics Readers, an activity bank full of games and activities to support learning, word lists including high frequency words integrated into learning and an extensive downloadable support.
