Title i / Lap reading

Welcome to our Title i/LAP reading support program!
Elger Bay Elementary's Title I/LAP Reading Team, L to R: Stacy Johnson, Kathy Buckingham, Dana Anderson (Title I/LAP Coordinator) and Sherri Webb
We provide supplemental reading support for students who are reading below grade level to help close the achievement gap. Students are identified through a school-wide ranking of assessments and are served and monitored for progress by our Title I/LAP team. Students in kindergarten are served in small groups in their classrooms, while students in first through fifth grades are served through a small group pull-out model at their level. All of our students are monitored for progress every other week. We support classroom lessons with our district's adopted reading program, Journeys, and phonics skills with the Really Great Reading program. We love working with our students!
EBE's SUMMER READING Goal
Our school goal is to read 20 minutes at least 5 days per week. We hope our students will continue practicing and refining their reading skills and/or just reading to/with someone else this summer! Below are the July and August Reading Calendars. Please make a copy and initial on the days your child reads and when school resumes, it can be turned in for a prize!
Have a great summer and Happy Reading!

SUMMER READING RESOURCES
CHECK OUT THIS LIST OF GREAT BOOKS TO READ!
Since 1989, the International Literacy Association’s Teachers’ Choices project has identified outstanding trade books published in the previous year that teachers, librarians, and reading/literacy specialists chose as being exceptional for curriculum use. Families and caregivers will also find the list invaluable, as it provides excellent choices for reading aloud or for help answering important questions prompted by children’s experiences as they grow up.
