Do you do ELS? What do you think of it?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Dalian Daisy, May 5, 2011.

  1. Hello all, I am currently reviewing ELS in Year 1 at our school. At the moment our Year 1 teacher & TA are finding it v hard to fit in & a big burden in terms of TA time re resourcing it and taking her away from class a lot (The TA also has a lot of other grps & responsibilities) so we are trying to stream line it. We are following the 2007 ELS programme & were thinking to cut it down from 16 weeks to 10 weeks and possibly cutting it to 4 days a week as the 5th day has a Guided Reading/writing Focus and we do Guided reading outside of this and were thinking to condense the Friday session into the others. We also felt that we could condense the first 6 weeks phonic focus into a week so that then we can go onto the phase 3 which our children really need. Has anyone else tied to do this with ELS? Thanks x
