We have twelve Language Arts teachers, a reading interventionist, and myself (a literacy coach) who are trained in implementing the intervention. Since this period happens at the same time, it is essential that the LLI resources be organized and are ready to use by multiple people at the same time. Our elementary literacy coach taught us an awesome trip at the middle school for organizing LLI systems, and we were blessed to have awesome parent volunteers come in to make the organization come to life. Check out the pictures and tips below for ideas in organizing LLI systems at your school.
Tip #1: Use file cabinets to store the lessons. This will make the lessons accessible to teachers, and really makes it easier to help maintain and organize the LLI resource. As you can also see, each file drawer is labeled with the color of the system and the lesson range of the lessons contained in that drawer.
Tip #3: Photocopy the lesson and all of the handouts from the online resources needed for that particular lesson. Tell teachers to make any copies they need and leave the originals in the folder as the master. This keeps everything for each lesson together and allows all of our teachers who need the resource at the same time of day to have access to what they need for each lesson.
At the middle school, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Purple LLI System, which will target students reading at levels R-W. These levels will be ideal for interventions targeting our 6, 7, and 8 students population reading below grade level.
Hope everyone is having an enjoyable school year! Can't wait to hear from you as our years get rolling! :)
