Kathleen is an intervention teacher in Pinellas County, Florida. She and her colleagues have been strategically providing interventions to third-, fourth-, and fifth-graders. Data analysis revealed some students required explicit instruction and practice with phonics and word study instruction. They grappled with ways to provide this support. Their questions and wonderings led them to explore the SIPPS program. This is their first year using SIPPS in tandem with another intervention resource. For Kathleen and her colleagues, this has been a year of questioning, reflecting, collaborating, and learning as they continue to search for ways to best meet the needs of every student along the path to reading success. Below Kathleen shares some of her insights from this school year.
We applaud Kathleen for sharing her reflections as she and her colleagues work to make every child a reader!
