At Karoo Primary School we run a very successful literacy intervention program for students in grades 3 – 6. The program is Toe By Toe and has been running successfully in schools all over the world for many years. Here at Karoo we commenced the program in 2013 and have been building on that success ever since. Students are seen on a one to one basis at least 3 times a week. Improvement in student engagement and ability is immeasurable. The program assists students with reading using phonics based learning in addition to spelling rules, sight words and syllable division.
Students who work on the program build confidence and greatly improve their reading abilities. Tutors are fully trained and all have a Working With Children Check. Many are training for professional positions within schools including teaching and education support.
For further information regarding the program please contact Sue Austin, Toe By Toe Co-ordinator, via the school office.
