Overview - SPELLREAD LIBRARY GRADES 4-5/6 INTERMEDIATE
SpellRead is a one-year, small-group reading intervention program designed for students who are more than two years behind grade level, students with learning differences, and English language learners. The program focuses on phonological automaticity and reading fluency while providing comprehension and vocabulary instruction and opportunities for writing. It combines intensive phonemic and phonetic instruction activities with leveled readers and award-winning trade books to build students' reading comprehension. Within each lesson, SpellRead progresses sequentially through three phases of instruction, A, B, and C with comprehensive and clear, step-by-step instruction.
Comprehensive Instructional Cycle
SpellRead's intensive intervention model is designed for groups of five students with one certified teacher or paraprofessional in a 60- to 90-minute daily instructional block.
The SpellRead Libraries contain age-appropriate, high-interest, leveled, controlled-vocabulary readers, as well as trade books written by award-winning authors. The libraries progressively increase the difficulty of language structures and emphasize oral language development. Support for English language learners is provided through books that carefully control the introduction of new language structures.
The Teacher's Manual forms the core of the SpellRead materials. The manual contains focused, step-by-step instructions and detailed activities for each lesson in Phases A, B, and C. Planning and organizational aids include lists of required materials for every lesson; visuals and graphics show how all materials are integrated; word lists, syllable lists and spelling lists are located at point-of-use; and expected student responses are provided for every teacher prompt.
The Teacher's Resource Book contains additional tools to help prepare the daily lesson, including scope and sequence, directions for games, reproducibles, and more.
