Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery is a school program designed to help Year 1 students become better readers and writers. Reading Recovery has existed in NSW schools since 1984 and has been an ongoing NSW government commitment since 1996.  At Woy Woy PS we have had the Reading Recovery program operating for six years.

A trained Reading Recovery teacher works with a selected student daily for thirty minutes for twelve to twenty weeks. This individual support is in addition to classroom reading and writing lessons.

Reading Recovery students achieve a greater level of success in learning to read and write when their teachers and parents work together. The student takes a book home to practise reading every day. They also take activities relating to the story to complete.

Currently at Woy Woy PS we have two Reading Recovery teachers who implement the program daily with four students each.
