The Intervention Partner is a small -group, short-term, supplementary intervention program that can
help turn your struggling readers into successful, confident readers. Each lesson provides teachers with
engaging leveled books and systematic, fast-paced lessons plans that follow the Literacy Footprints
framework. Set 1 is designed to work independently or in partnership with the Literacy Footprints Classroom
Grade 1–3 classroom kits.
Power from Matching Books
At the heart of Literacy Footprints are high-quality leveled books that delight and engage readers. In
Intervention Partner, students will encounter some of the same favorite characters such as Bella and Rosie,
Jack and Daisy, Jasper the Cat, Clarence the Dragon, Little Dinosaur, Spaceboy, and more, along with familiar
traditional tales, and nonfiction text that provides a gradual lift in complexity to support even the most
reluctant reader. Each book has been precisely selected to correspond with a classroom book to support students
in building a core of known high-frequency words. The same sight words are taught and practiced, and students
have an opportunity to see the words they are learning in different contexts.
Power from Matching Word Study Lessons
Intervention Partner Lesson Word Study lessons have been designed to support and extend the same
phonics concepts being taught in the matching Literacy Footprints Classroom lesson.
Power from Matching Frameworks
Struggling readers often become more confused when faced with conflicting instructional approaches. The Intervention Partner lesson plans provide the same Literacy Footprints framework used by the classroom teachers with some additional support for struggling readers. Each lesson is designed to engage students in literacy learning while they read books and write about their reading.
