To help every child read!
As a 20-year educator, the one activity I cherish the most is helping children develop a love for reading! It never gets old for me to see the confidence rise in a student as they successfully read sentences they previously struggled to complete. This confidence tends to overflow into their entire being, as literacy mastery unlocks a world of new possibilities for each child.
After personally seeing strong reading growth in a diverse group of learners over the years, I am offering this enrichment program on the principle that every child can excel in reading.
Literacy Program Overview
Building Foundational Skills in Literacy
Curriculum teaches students academic language skills, including the use of inferential and narrative language and vocabulary language.
Through the program, students gain a greater awareness of sounds and links to letters.
Each session teaches students to decode words, analyze word parts, and write and recognize each word in a sentence structure.
