Reading is an essential foundation for an exciting school career. Reading to your child, with your child, or listening to your child read at home is a great tool to build literacy awareness, foundational skills, and confidence in reading.
Throughout the kindergarten year students will begin to build the foundational skills that are needed in order to become a great reader. Students will be an active participant in their own road to reading through exploratory centers in DAILY 5, phonogram learning, and group shared reading. Students reading ability will also be evaluated by using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) to determine accurate and appropriate reading levels for all learners.
Reading engages, excites, and lets the imagination run wild. Here is a list of suggested authors and great books to read with your imaginative reader.
