Literacy Memberships

The Reading Intervention Collaborative is a coaching, training, and support group for Kindergarten through 5th grade educators who work with struggling readers in any capacity (i.e. classroom teacher, reading specialist, interventionist, tutor, etc.).

A membership to the RIC will develop your teachers’ literacy expertise so they can quickly close the gap for struggling readers.

As a member, teachers will receive:

Immediate access to 10+ hours of training videos that explain best practices in reading intervention and teach our “Find the Why,” research-based method that uncovers root causes for reading problems

Biweekly (every other week) group coaching calls live via Zoom; these are also recorded and uploaded to the members’ area in case teachers cannot attend live

24-7 access to our Reading Intervention Community private online forum, where teachers can ask questions and connect with other educators, plus message our on-staff reading specialists

Access to a new, 30-minute reading intervention training each month, so teachers can continue improving their practice and stay up-to-date on the latest reading research (this is in an easy-listen private podcast format, with accompanying handout)

Please note that the Reading Intervention Collaborative is a coaching and professional development group focused on helping struggling readers. Members receive some printable tools for supporting their reading intervention practices, but it is not a full reading intervention program with lesson plans.

The Literacy Clubs provide Science of Reading based materials and support for teaching literacy in Kindergarten, first, and second grade. There are separate clubs specifically for Kindergarten and 1st & 2nd grade teachers. When you purchase memberships for your teachers, they’ll receive brand new resources for teaching literacy every single month.

Each month, members get:

12-15 Decodable Texts and Small Group Lesson Plans

Highly-decodable readers at different difficulty levels – plus small group lesson plans and assessments

These “Planned for You” lessons save teachers tons of time and prep work!

16+ Differentiated Literacy Centers

Activities for phonological awareness, high frequency words, grammar, writing, and more

These activities cover tons of student-friendly topics and will provide engaging practice for multiple literacy skills.

1 Professional Development Training Video

30 minute training on literacy topics requested by our members – teachers can watch anytime and anywhere

These trainings help teachers stay up-to-date and passionate about teaching, all while taking the PD planning work off of administrators!

1 Private Q&A Zoom Call

Teachers get personalized support from Reading Specialist and Learning At The Primary Pond founder, Alison Ryan.

During the call, she’s available to answer all your teachers’ questions about teaching literacy.

Option to join live or pre-submit a question and watch the recording afterward

In addition to everything listed above, members also get access to special bonuses, including our Small Group Time-Saving Toolkit, an Intervention Toolkit for Lower Learners, multiple Assessment and Organizational Tools, and additional “On Demand” Literacy Training Videos.

Choose between monthly,
