PreK reading corps at a GLANCE / FOR MEMBERS
Michigan Education Corps PreK Reading Corps’ goal is for every Michigan preschooler to be Kindergarten ready, and we need your help to reach this goal.
As a PreK Reading Corps interventionist, you’ll serve one preschool classroom to help each child become Kindergarten ready. In order to achieve this goal, you’ll assist preschool teachers in implementing a literacy and math rich learning environment. You’ll also provide scripted evidence-based literacy interventions in small groups or one-on-one. These interventions focus on rhyming, alliteration, letter sounds, letter names and picture naming (vocabulary). To ensure your success, you’ll receive ongoing training and coaching throughout the school year.
Earn your Child Development associate (CDA) Credential
As a PreK Reading Corps Interventionist, you have the opportunity to complete your Child Development Associate (CDA) credential and become a more qualified candidate in the early childhood education field. In partnership with Camp Fire West Michigan 4C, Michigan Education Corps offers this opportunity to PreK Reading Corps Interventionists who begin their service term in August. Watch this video to hear more from a PreK Reading Corps Alumni, Brittney Rose.
