Reading Recovery


Welcome to my webpage!   The 2022-2023 school year marks the fifteenth year that Little Egg Harbor School District has offered Reading Recovery to our first grade students.   It is an amazing program and you can learn more about it by using the tabs on the left to see actual Reading Recovery lessons as well as learn more about the Reading Recovery process, including parent resources.   


If your first-grade child has been offered Reading Recovery lessons it means his/her teacher thinks your child needs extra help with reading and writing. Proficient readers and writers develop early. For children whose literacy skills are just emerging, getting help as quickly as possible will make a big difference in learning. 


As a Reading Recovery teacher, I have received special training to find out exactly what your child finds hard about reading and writing. The Reading Recovery lessons I develop will be based on what he or she knows and will be adapted to make it easy to learn. I will give your child an individual lesson every day for 12 to 20 weeks. In that time you should see your child’s reading and writing improve quickly. This new learning usually helps children feel more confident about classroom work, too. 


In the United States, more than 2 million children have had Reading Recovery lessons, and about 75% of students reached grade-level standard after a full series of lessons. Even children who do not reach this standard will have made considerable improvements in reading and writing. With information gained during Reading Recovery lessons, teachers and administrators can make good decisions about future support your child may need.‚Äč
