An affordable and effective tool for your Special Education program
Boost Independent Reading Levels for Students with IEPs
Students with individualized educational programs (IEPs) often have difficulty reading at grade level. Many students score below grade level on standardized tests and require a flexible tool that provides high-quality instruction as part of their IEP.
BrightFish Reading is a structured, yet flexible, research-based program for grades 2-10 that enables struggling learners to read engaging, on-level text while motivating them to practice and improve.
Why BrightFish Reading Works
Classroom Snapshot: Spout Springs Elementary School, GA
Special Education teacher, Meghan Holmes, has been using BrightFish Reading with students in her resource room since the 2016-17 school year.
3, 4, and 5
Students are enrolled in BrightFish Reading based on Lexile or DRA scores from standardized assessments.
Classes of 5-15 students use BrightFish Reading in the resource room. While students receive individualized instruction in BrightFish, Ms. Holmes focuses on data collection and small-group remediation.
BrightFish sessions are scheduled for 40 minutes at least 3 days a week. Some students also use the program from home.
Ms. Holmes unexpectedly announces who has the most hours or completed stories. Those students receive prizes for their hard work in BrightFish Reading.
How she uses BrightFish data
Once students begin working in the program, Ms. Holmes utilizes error data from the student progress reports to drive small group instruction on missed concepts and standards. She also meets with students 1:1 to discuss their progress and feedback.
