Reading and Language Arts
Our classes work on decoding skills by participating in Scholastic's System 44 Program. This program works on decoding through scaffolding pathways on computer software, oral reading, and "word work" in the 44 Workbook, and other manipulatives. Additionally, we work on vocabulary and reading comprehension skills through the Soar to Success program.
The students will be expected to have an independent reading book at all times, in which they will be tested on through our Accelerated Reading Program. Our school library has a WONDERFUL selection of books to choose from! Students are encouraged to visit the library in the morning (after checking in with their homeroom teacher) to choose a book. Additionally, our teachers have great collections of books right in their classroom.
