FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Reading Recovery Inspired SAMPLE: Package #1”

by Unitedtoteach

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

This is a FREEBIE or SAMPLE of a larger product. The approach is inspired by Reading Recovery, but we are in NO WAY affiliated with their products. This is simply a LESSON PLAN most appropriate for one on one tutoring or small groups. The full product has suggestions for centers, should you decide to cover these lesson plans with all your students. You will most likely not be able to teach these words to a full class, however (at least not in my experience).
