Elementary Reading

Each Elementary Reading Course focuses on standards-based, priority skills needed to accelerate reading growth. Each level of our program lays a foundation of basic phonics skills. When students are in the beginning phases of reading acquisition, there is a greater emphasis on phonics and phonemic awareness. As students acquire the ability to word read, the emphasis shifts to vocabulary and reading comprehension. Students receive explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics and word study, fluency, vocabulary, listening and speaking, and comprehension.

There are a variety of course options:
Within the Level A Course, students receive explicit instruction in phonological awareness and learn to apply basic phonics skills to controlled texts. Students engage in fluency practice and repetition to increase letter, sound, and word automaticity, and explore vocabulary through listening, speaking and reading. Assessment of reading comprehension occurs through narrative and expository texts, explicit teachings of priority strategies, and application of the questioning scaffold.

Within the Level B Course, students receive explicit instruction in phonological awareness and additional support linked to phonics. Students continue to apply basic phonics skills to controlled texts. Students engage in fluency practice and repetition to
increase letter, sound, and word automaticity and focus on fluency through guided, oral, and repeated readings. Students explore vocabulary through listening, speaking and reading. Assessment of reading comprehension occurs through narrative and expository
texts, explicit teachings of priority strategies, and application of the questioning scaffold.

Within the Level C Course, students receive explicit instruction in phonological awareness and support lessons for remediation. Students continue to apply basic phonics skills to controlled texts and participate in advanced word studies. Students engage in
fluency practice through guided, oral, and repeated readings. Students receive explicit instruction with vocabulary and explore vocabulary through listening, speaking and reading. Assessment of reading comprehension occurs through narrative and expository
texts, explicit teachings of priority strategies, and application of the questioning scaffold.

Within Levels D, E, and F Courses, students receive support lessons for remediation in  phonological awareness. Students continue to apply basic phonics skills to controlled texts and participate in advanced word studies. Students engage in fluency practice
through guided, oral, and repeated readings. Within explicit vocabulary instruction, students explore high-utility words and strategies for word learning. Assessment of reading comprehension occurs primarily through expository texts, explicit teachings of
priority strategies, and application of the questioning scaffold.
