Scott-Foresman Early Reading Intervention
The Scott Foresman Early Reading Intervention is designed to provide at-risk kindergarten and first grade children with an intervention to improve reading achievement. A teacher or teacher assistant delivers 30-minute daily lessons to small groups of 2-5 students. This intervention is comprised of 126 lessons distributed across approximately 30 weeks of instruction.
The 30-minute lesson consists of seven activities, with each activity designed to last only three to five minutes. The first 15 minutes of the lesson focus on phonological awareness and alphabetic understanding and the next 15 minutes center on writing and spelling. Each activity is labeled with the amount of time it should last, helping teachers pace instruction. The lessons also provide immediate reteaching strategies for students who do not initially grasp the material.
