The purpose of this study is to research some of the challenges that teachers face when teaching students who are reading below grade level. The study involved third grade students at Southwest Laurens Elementary School in Laurens County, Georgia. The study revealed that through the intense use of some basic reading strategies that students’ fluency, reading comprehension, and reading levels increased more than basic sight word recognition. The study recommends that teachers continue to spend time each day allowing students to read aloud individually to the teacher. The study further recommends that since it is difficult for one teacher to have time for all students to read to him/her each day, the teacher should solicit the help of volunteers for this daily reading time.
