Scott Foresman Reading Street Core Reading Program
We will be implementing a 90-minute uninterrupted reading block into our daily schedule. The program strategically and explicitly teaches the 5 big components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.
Through whole group, small group, individual, literacy work stations, partner reading, workshop, and guided practice the students will learn how to orchestrate their decoding skills and comprehension skills to become fluent, effective readers.
Each week we will be learning new "amazing words" for our oral language for a total of 241 by the end of 2nd grade. We encourage you to reinforce the use of these words at home in conversation. The complete list is attached below.
There are many parts to this reading program but one of the most exciting is that it will all be available to you and your child online. We will be issuing each child a user name and password to access stories, games, phonics activities, spelling activities, and much more where ever they may be with a internet connection. Please be patient as we work to set this feature up. We will notify you as soon as it is ready.
