Fundations Unlocks a New Piece of the Reading Puzzle
Our first and second grade teachers have been implementing Fundations, a core phonics program, designed to build a consistent approach to teaching the essential building blocks of early reading skills to our students. The program is researched based and will help improve the reading fluency of students with diverse reading levels. Students in first and second grade are spending 30 minutes a day reinforcing skills as well as learning new ones. One of the primary goals of the program is to provide a consistent platform of instruction of basic reading skills to intervene early for at-risk readers and enrich those students reading above grade level.
