Literacy groups are one intervention option at Cold Harbor.
Classroom, county, and state assessments along with teacher
referrals are considered for placement into this group. They
are led by reading specialists who work collaboratively with
the classroom teachers to provide daily supplemental
instruction. The instruction is a second dose of the guided
reading principles implemented within the classroom in a
small group setting.
In addition to the daily Fundations lessons taught within
the classroom in grades K-2, students who struggle with
acquiring the focus reading skills of this program may also
receive additional Fundations instruction in a small group
setting. The Double Dose lessons can be administered by the
reading specialists, special education teachers, and/or
Corrective Reading and Reading Mastery are programs that are
designed to reinforce decoding strategies. The primary
instructional focus for these groups is decoding, word
analysis, and fluency. Reading Mastery (grades K-2) is
designed to teach beginning readers the skills needed to
master the basics of learning to read, while Corrective
Reading (grades 3-5) is designed for students who need
additional support to read accurately and fluently.
