Many students enter kindergarten and are already at risk for literacy difficulties. The purpose of this study was to examine the implementation of early intervention strategies to kindergarten students for literacy success. This quantitative study explored early intervention strategies to improve kindergarten students' literacy at an elementary school in South Carolina. Participants from 4 kindergarten class were assessed utilizing the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA). Reading levels from this assessment were utilized to gain knowledge about student participants before and after an intervention. All student participants received intense, small group instruction based on the Concepts About Print Skills, a prerequisite literacy foundation, based on research to enhance long-term reading success. Instruction included developmentally appropriate activities and practice on literacy skills. The results of this study showed the potential to affect social change inherent in long-term student achievement.
