Basic Items for Reading Recovery Lessons

Resources for Reading has everything you need (other than the books themselves) for your Reading Recovery® lesson. We've kept this list of basic items down to a reasonable size; you'll find a much wider selection available from us, so by all means please browse around.

The easiest way to get started is with our RR Teacher Kits. We provide everything you need to get going, all together in one convenient package, a single order with just one purchase order to deal with, all at a discounted price.

If you prefer, by all means choose individual items from our catalog. We've put together a list of the basics. You won't need every item on this list, some alternative choices are provided. But in general, you'll need items from these categories:

  • Journals & Markers
  • Coverup Tape or Glue Sticks
  • Magnetic Letters
  • Magnetic Easel or Board
  • Sentence Strips, Envelopes
  • Send-home Bags
  • Timers
  • Record Keeping & Storage
and of course, the books, which you can get from the various book publishers.
