BLAST: A Targeted Literacy Intervention

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

With many of our students needing intervention to bridge the gaps created by learning interruptions, how do we meet each student’s specific needs? This session will highlight how one K-3 school implemented a school-wide intervention block to improve literacy levels for all students. In our BLAST (Building Literacy and Supporting Teamwork) intervention time, each student’s phonemic awareness and phonics skills are assessed, and students are placed in small, flexible groups to receive instruction on a specific reading or pre-reading skill (such as rhyming, letter sounds, blends, long vowels, etc.). Join me to learn about this locally developed program, with numerous samples and resources shared.
