I am creating this blog for fellow teachers of literacy in grades K-1. I am a literacy support specialist who supports those grades. I have begun implementing the Partnership in Comprehensive Literacy which was developed by the University of Arkansas - Little Rock, Center for Literacy. While I have no ties with this organization, I have learned much from attending their workshops and training sessions. I will share my school's successes using this model on my page. I hope to get a dialogue started with others who are also using this model for literacy in the early grades. I will also share our successes using the Guided Reading Plus model for students who lag behind in reading. Please share with me your successes and concerns in the area of early literacy.
