Literacy is at the forefront of all learning on a daily basis for our scholars. Scholars receive explicit instruction each day as they continue to build a foundation of early literacy. Reading blocks are 90 minutes which include the Big 5: Phonics, Phonemic Awareness, Vocabulary, Fluency, and Comprehension. The Superkids Reading Program Superkidsreading.com/k-2 is being used as the main curriculum. In addition, supplemental curriculum and instruction is used to support mastery of the common core state standards. Scholars are expected to spend 30 minutes per day reading independently.
