Could the Phonics Lessons or Word Study Lessons be used as a small group pull-out intervention instead of being used with the whole group?

The Phonics lessons or Word Study Lessons can be used with either a small or a whole group of students. It is not designed as an intervention, but can be used to address the identified needs of your students. The FPL Classroom system guide states: “The phonics lessons are designed so that, as you use them, you will always consider the particular children you teach. You will decide which lessons to use and whether or not to modify them to meet the needs of your particular students.... The phonics, spelling, and word study lessons in Fountas & Pinnell Classroom may be used with whole groups and individuals. Occasionally, based on your as- sessment, you may use a lesson with a small group.... [The system includes Informal and] More formal and systematic assessments [which] can be beneficial in pinpointing a child’s specific edge of understanding so that you can customize a lesson for one-on-one or small group use.”

The Leveled Literacy Systems are designed as an intervention. LLI provides a well-defined framework for lessons within which teachers make decisions specific to observations of the children’s needs. The lessons include reading texts, writing, and phon- ics. Leveled Literacy Intervention is a scientifically based system that is designed to prevent literacy difficulties rather than correct long-term failure. It has been highly successful in achieving its goal of cutting across the path of literacy failure and bringing chil- dren to grade-level performance in tens of thousands of schools.

We wish you the best in your decision making,
