Our "Encore" block at Butterfield serves as students' second dose of reading in addition to the core reading block. Students receive 30-50 minutes per day of additional reading instructional tailored to their level. This is an uninterrupted block of time during which all available staff members focus in on one grade level at a time. The groups are flexible and may change throughout the year. Research shows that an uninterrupted literacy block is one of the best ways to provide appropriate instruction for each individual's needs, and we are excited to do that during Encore!
