 Reading Resource                                                


Mrs.Sanders, Reading Resource Teacher, works with students, teachers, and parents to improve students’ reading achievement. She will be working with whole classes in grades 1 – 5, focusing on reading comprehension strategies and for the older students, study skills. She will also provide some small group instruction to targeted students, including “English as a Second Language (ESL)” students.  In addition, she will oversee the Book Buddy program at grade 1, SOL Tutorial Program, and Parent Partners.

Mrs. Sanders will also act as a consultant to teachers, helping them implement Hanover’s reading program in their classrooms and providing inservice opportunities.

A brief description of some of the reading programs follows:

Book Buddies is a one-on-one program whereby adult trained volunteers work with students twice a week with a 45 minute lesson to develop reading skills through the rereading of familiar books, word study, writing, and new reading.

The SOL Tutorial Program provides supplementary instruction for at-risk students in the areas of reading and math at SOL targeted grades. A secondary focus is on study and test-taking skills. Students are recommended for the program on the basis of test data or through teacher recommendations.

Parent Partners are volunteers in the community who provide extra assistance to selected students for 30 minutes or more per week.
