Low, low, low incoming student

Clip to ScrapBook #1

So I was looking for someone in our student information system and came across a student with an IEP so I was taking a look since the name didn't sound familiar to me (I'm a 3rd grade resource teacher & have the majority of the 3rd grade resource students in my ESY program right now, so I was obviously curious). I saw this student has pull out resource as their program for LAL & Math, I'm more likely LAL. However, according to their IEP they are reading at a DRA 4, now my students are never on grade level; however, I've never been this low in resource. This student was just classified at the end of the school year & worked with the reading specialist last year.

Has anyone ever has a student be so drastically low? I'm not sure were to even start. I know I definitely have to focus a lot on decoding and phonics, which I planned to do with most of my students. I guess I'm just nervous when it comes to the grade level skill. I tend to do a whole group lesson on the skill (IE...character traits, etc.), then reinforce it in small group with guided reading and a book on their level; however, books that low barely have character names. There's no meat, no substance. I'm not sure how to reinforce the grade level skill, when there are few resources.

What would you do?
