Reading Title One Intervention 


Hello Parents:  

If your child is a struggling reader, they may be invited to be a part of the Leveled Literacy Intervention small groups occurring at WMES. The program is designed to assist students with accuracy, fluency, comprehension and writing as they strive to reach their reading grade level. The research based program utilized throughout WMES, MCPS and the country is entitled Leveled Literacy Intervention. 

The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System (LLI) is a small-group, supplementary intervention designed for children who find reading and writing difficult. LLI is designed to bring children quickly up to grade-level competency—in 14 to 18 weeks on average. 

Five systems are available for LLI. Each supports instruction at different levels on the F&P Text Level Gradient™, A–Z: 

Orange System: Levels A through C  

Orange System Booster Pack: Levels D and E 

Green System: Levels A through J  

Green System Booster Pack: Level K 

Blue System: Levels C through N  

Red System: Levels L through Q  

Gold System: Levels O through T  

Purple System: Levels R through W  


Leveled books are a key component in helping children become competent readers. Each LLI system includes a collection of brand new, carefully leveled books to provide enough support small amount of challenge so the reader can learn on the text and make small steps toward grade-level goals.  



Parents are an essential part in a child’s education. Please take five to ten minutes daily to read to or with your child. You will truly see a huge difference in your child’s reading, just with this simple task. Listed below is a “Reading Target” chart indicating the “Reading Level” placement of your child. This information allows parents and students to set reading goals and work hard to reach or exceed them.  In addition, there are resources (websites) listed below that can support your child at home in the area of reading.  


Please feel free to contact your Title One Reading Intervention teachers with any questions or concerns. 


Happy Reading!
