Our goal is to systematically grow students in reading by using Jan Richardson's Next Steps in Guided Reading Program. Literacy Footprints is designed for classroom teachers to use with their students or provide interventions to low achieving scholars. It meets the needs of diverse learners by providing vocabulary rich lessons for ELL students and helps support students in special education programs by providing appropriate scaffolds. Each kit contains sequenced, high-quality leveled texts in a variety of genres. Students will experience the richness of traditional tales, realistic fiction, fantasy, and informational texts that will allow to move from emergent to fluent readers. The goal is to continue the work that has been done in kindergarten through third grade by providing another year of systematic teaching strategies outlined by Jan Richardson to increase our students ability to fill in the holes they need in foundational skills while increasing their ability to comprehend text to meet the rigor to the common core standards.

What will be done with my students

Students will participate in universal screenings using the assess, decide, and plan framework from the program. After the assessments are given, teachers will form groups based on assessment outcomes and student needs. Students will participate in daily guided reading lessons in which specific teaching points will be presented to move students along the continuum. Teachers will match students up with challenging books that are at their instructional level and support their next reading goal. Students will practice self-monitoring, and problem solving their way through a text, rereading as needed to check for understanding which increased their ability to comprehend and respond to the text. Teachers will teach with intentionality and provide responsive feedback to the specific needs of their students. The framework provides teachers with the ability to step in and provide support and a a fading plan to reduce support enabling students to move forward as independent readers.
