Where the readers go, the books will follow. To ensure students are still reading, Arborgate School staff have sent hundreds of books home with families. Literacy learning is continuing remotely through virtual one-on-one reading and writing support, including the Reading Recovery and guided reading programs. Students are exploring online libraries and watching recorded or live streaming video of their teachers reading and writing stories about what they’ve been up to at home. “Students’ and teachers’ faces light up when they see each other online for their daily reading and writing sessions,” says Reading Recovery teacher Donna Leveille. “They are sharing online white boards to practise new words, and having conversations to enrich their oral language.”
