Reading Programs

Here at Weaverville Elementary School, students who receive instructional support in reading participate in one of two scientifically researched literacy programs.
The Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention Program provides is a supplementary small group reading program that provides systematic instruction in phonemic awareness and phonics.  Explicit instruction of comprehension skills are embedded in the program and students engage in writing activities in order to respond to what they have read.
Here is a link with more information about the LLI reading program:
The Wilson Reading Program was developed by Barbara Wilson and first published in 1988.  The Wilson Reading Program is based on Orton-Gillingham principles and has more than 20 years of data to support it's effectiveness.  It is is a highly-structured remedial program that directly teaches the structure of the language.  The program provides systematic instruction in teaching word structure for both decoding and encoding.  In addition, daily lessons also address vocabulary, comprehension skills and oral reading fluency.
