Welcome to the Reading Room! My name is Rene' Carone. I am the reading teacher for grades k-2. We have a lot of exciting things that go on in our room every day. First let me tell you a little bit about AIS Reading. AIS stands for Academic Intervention Services. It is designed to assist students in achieving the Common Core Learning Standards in English Language Arts. This is done by providing additional instruction in a small group setting.
In AIS reading, I will use the Journeys Intervention program, which supplements the lessons taught by the regular classroom teacher. I also use the Fountas and Pinnell's Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) Reading Program. This program is in the form of guided reading groups where students are reading at their instructional level. By working in small groups, I am able to address concerns and specific difficulties your child may be having in the area of reading. This time is also used to teach skills to become active readers and writers.
My goal is for each child to become a stronger, confident, independent and lifelong reader and writer!
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time!
