Organizing a New Group

Abstract

He was 6 years old, timid and shy, but a very cooperative little boy who had been retained because of his inability to memorize weekly word lists. The mother said, “I do not understand why he’s having so much trouble; his sister did fine.” Two weeks into the Reading Orienteering Club program, the little boy went home reading a vowel clustered story, incorporating eight new words. The little boy was so excited that he insisted on reading the story twice to his dad before going to bed. The dad remarked, “It’s about time he decided to learn to read. I knew he could if he would just try.”
