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. It also creates a sense of excitement as students receive a new book each time they are able to pass off their current book with 3 or fewer errors. 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 so that they will be able to pass off their books each Friday. Nightly reading also builds good habits that will promote a love of reading that will continue on through your child's life.
