Reading Intervention

Mrs. Doris Favale works with students, teachers, and families to help students achieve literacy goals and discover the joy of reading and writing. In addition to working with students in small groups and one on one, Mrs. Favale collaborates with teachers and provides resources and ongoing professional development to support and enrich literacy instruction in the classroom. 

Some of the literacy programs we offer at Pearson’s Corner Elementary are as follows:

Two students readingEnglish Language Learner (ELL) Instruction

PCES supports eligible ELL students in language development and academic achievement. Students participate in supplementary lessons that incorporate listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Our resource teachers integrate content-specific instruction in ELL lessons. 

Level Literacy Intervention (LLI)

Mrs. Favale and our part-time reading interventionists offer supplementary reading instruction to students who would benefit from additional support in reading in kindergarten through fifth grades. The goal of the LLI program (published by Fountas and Pinnell) is to lift the literacy achievement of students who are not achieving grade-level expectations in reading. During LLI lessons, students read new and familiar texts, work with words, and participate in writing activities. 

Paws to R.E.A.D

Paws to R.E.A.D. volunteer therapy dogs and owners/handlers visit PCES to provide one-on-one reading sessions to developing readers. The nonjudgmental nature of the dogs decreases the stress of the reading process and allows the students to enjoy reading and improve their reading skills. Typically, second and third graders—selected based on reading assessment data and teacher recommendations—participate in the Paws to R.E.A.D. program. 

The mission of the Paws to R.E.A.D. program is:

To improve and enrich the literacy skills of children through the individual assistance of registered Reading Education Assistance Dogs® and handlers (R.E.A.D.® teams) as literacy mentors.

Channel 8 (WRIC) featured Paws to R.E.A.D. at PCES in May of 2017. 

SOL Tutorial Program

The SOL tutorial program provides additional instruction and practice in the areas of reading and math to eligible students. Teachers also address test-taking strategies during tutorial sessions. Teachers recommend students for the tutorial program based on assessment data.
