Literacy Success

My name is Jill Dennis and I am the LLI teacher for 1st and 2nd graders at Thomas Elementary.  It is exciting to watch the growth in reading strategies while working with our students. We read many books, study word parts, and write while we are together.

Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) is a program designed to give additional assistance to students in reading. It is provided to Thomas Elementary with Title 1 funds. This program is for first and second graders. We meet every day in small groups for thirty minutes.



We work on the following skills:      Comprehension-understanding what we read

Accuracy-reading words accurately

Fluency-reading accurately, with expression, and reading at the rate we

Writing-writing about the books we have read


We learn strategies that help us with each of these areas.
