Grades K-5 vs. K-3 Focus

Intermediate grade teachers often wonder why primary grade teachers get so many more resources through Reading First to help beginning readers when they too have struggling readers.  How can your school and district provide support for 4th and 5th grade teachers in reading when Reading First doesn’t allow expenditures at these levels?  Can anything be done to help them?

Summary of Team Ideas for Addressing the Issue:

Core program bought for the whole school (K-5) and everyone follows the Reading First model

4th and 5th grades asked to DIBEL and analyze the data

Intermediate reading coach

Help teachers use the data

DIBEL at all grade levels

Grade level meetings are critical

Problem solving as teams and working through the process (like K-3 does now)

Cross grade grouping is beneficial

Getting 4th-6th grade teachers supported and trained (move K-3 teaches into 4-6 teaching positions?)

Added reading classes in middle school

Corrective Reading flows nicely with combination of Read Naturally
