K-5 Reading Model

The Spring Hill K-5 reading model is designed to support successful learning by adapting instruction to meet individual students’ needs. The model is developed around small group rotations as a means of differentiating instruction. Within the reading block of instruction, teachers

  • use whole group lessons to introduce, model, teach, and review skills and concepts;
  • use teacher-led small groups to differentiate the instruction presented in whole group instruction. These small groups are based on students’ instructional needs;
  • use guided practice to reinforce skills;
  • use independent activities to provide meaningful practice.
