Reading Intervention

At Laurel Meadow, our language arts goal is to increase students’ passion for reading while continuing to develop independent strategic readers who can think critically when reading a text and interpret and respond orally and in writing to text.

Optimal Growth for Students

We foster a love of reading and writing through authentic literacy experiences for each student. Through classroom observations and ongoing assessments, teachers, reading specialists, and administrators can collect information about students’ strengths and areas of growth. This information helps to determine instructional resources students may need to ensure they experience optimal growth through a variety of instructional opportunities. While our literacy instruction is based on our students’ needs, all instruction encompasses the Virginia Standards of Learning and Hanover County expectations.

Our Core Reading Specialists

Mrs. Coakley and Mrs. Clemons work with students, teachers, and families to help students achieve literacy goals and discover the joy of reading and writing. In addition to working with small groups of students, Mrs. Coakley and Mrs. Clemons collaborate with teachers and provide resources and ongoing professional development to support and enrich literacy instruction in the classroom.

For students who struggle to master the learning objectives and need additional support, Mrs. Coakley and Mrs. Clemons, as well as our other interventionists, provide supplementary instruction that best meets the needs of the students.
