Reading Program

We use a research based reading program that really helps children learn how to read!  It teaches them to read using a combination of high frequency words and blending of CVC words.  This helps them to build confidence in their own ability as readers.   There will also be fluency passages that will be sent home for your child to practice throughout the school year.  These should be read each night.  Each student needs to read as much of the passage as they can within a one minute timing.  This should be repeated 3 times per night.   This process promotes fluency and comprehension which will be important lifelong reading skills.  This program requires the students to practice their reading at home each night.  Nightly reading also builds good habits that will promote a love of reading that will continue on throughout your child's life.
