The following are the main components of our comprehensive literacy program:
Shared Reading - The teacher models fluent reading, demonstrates the reading process, models comprehension structures, and introduces children to different genres in a whole-group instructional process.
Expand Shared Reading -As readers' skills mature, students benefit from shared reading and writing through focus on comprehension, text access features, and genre elements.
Guided Reading - In a small-group instructional process, students of all abilities are guided through the reading of carefully leveled text.
Shared Writing - In a whole-group writing experience, the teacher models the writing process, skills, and strategies as students dictate and participate in the writing.
Guided Writing - Small-group or individual instruction focuses on a skill needed in student writing.
Independent Reading - Students read on their own from self-selected reading materials, so they can practice skills, develop fluency, and enjoy literature.
Assessment-Driven Instruction - Using a variety of assessments, teachers can discover student needs, evaluate their understanding, and monitor student growth throughout the year.
Independent Writing - Students practice the writing skills, strategies, and conventions they learned during shared and guided writing.
Process Writing - Students develop a piece of writing by working through stages: preparing, writing, polishing, and presenting.
