Stevenson Learning Skills

Older Elementary

Struggling Readers (3, 4-6)

The Overlapping Strategy was specifically designed for this type of student.  The Overlapping Strategy Teacher’s Manual and the Overlapping Strategy Student Book, which have part Green and Part Blue covers, replace the entire Beginning Green Level. Those two books are used in conjunction with the Basic Blue Level materials. The key components of the first level are pulled out and covered more quickly while new points from the second level are being introduced (thus the “Overlapping” name.)  The two Overlapping books will tell you when and what to use from the Basic Blue books.  After you complete the two Overlapping books, you continue forward with the remaining blue books and then move to the peach/orange materials. After this last level, students will be able to attack middle school reading material. It probably will take between a year and a year and a half to finish all of the Overlapping and Blue.
