Mrs. Lorie DiPaul
Hello! My name is Lorie DiPaul and I am a Reading Specialist at Hillcrest Elelmentary School. This is my 4th year at Hillcrest and my 15th year in Upper Darby School District. I've taught 4th grade, 1st grade, High School Reading and Elementary Reading.
In 1st and 2nd Grades I am teaching Sonday System 1 this year. Sonday System 1 offers structured, systematic, multisensory reading intervention for beginning readers through the end of 2nd grade reading level. Each lesson plan uses proven Orton-Gillingham methods to provide effective intervention in small group settings.
In 3rd, 4th and 5th grades this year I am teaching SRA Corrective Reading. Corrective Reading is designed to promote reading accuracy (decoding), fluency, and comprehension skills of students in grade 3 or higher who are reading below their grade level. The program has four levels that correspond to students' decoding skills.
