    Every year, first-grade children at Timrod Elementary School are assessed to identify those children who may benefit from Reading Recovery tutoring.  Reading Recovery is a short-term early intervention that provides "something extra" to insure all children are off to a good start in reading and writing.  The child receives an individual, daily 30-minute teaching session each day.  These Reading Recovery sessions are in addition to regular classroom instruction.  When the child can read and write at a level equal to that of a typical first-grade peer, or at the end of twenty weeks, the child's intervention is discontinued.
