Reading & Math Intervention

Our core reading specialist and math coach work with students, teachers, and families to help students achieve academic goals and discover the joy of reading, writing, and mathematics. In addition to working with students in small groups and one on one, our dedicated professionals collaborate with teachers and provide resources and ongoing professional development to support and enrich instruction in the classroom.

Literacy Instruction at MES

Our language arts goal is to increase student achievement and interest in literacy. We foster a love of reading through read-alouds, shared readings, mini-lessons, guided reading, and opportunities to discuss and write about what our students learn. These literacy activities show our students how to be strategic readers. Our students have independent time to apply their reading strategies during their balanced literacy block. Instructors constantly observe and assess student work to best meet student literacy needs. All instruction incorporates the Virginia Standards of Learning and Hanover County expectations. 

Through observation and assessment, we can determine which students would benefit from reading interventions, which include reading recovery, Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI), and SOL tutors. 

Math Intervention

Math intervention at MES provides supplemental math instruction and additional teaching and math resources in the classroom that support student understanding and achievement. Our intervention helps exceed expectations for all MES students as they work to meet challenging state achievement standards.
