Literacy consists of reading and writing. Reading opens the door to your child's academic success, imparts a love of learning and leads to higher grades in every subject.
The elementary school currently has two guided reaading programs and my plan is to implement these reading programs school wide. Guided reading a comprehensive literacy program and students are grouped for efficient reading instruction. While students always vary, the students in the group are alike enough that they can be effectively taught in a group for small group reading instruction. The guided reading lesson means reading and talking and sometimes writing about an interesting and engaging variety of fiction and nonfiction texts.
We want to instil the value of reading in all of our students. A child who reads becomes a child who loves to read - for a lifetime. We, as teachers, are dedicated to helping every child make that precious, transformative moment his orher own - again and again.
The right book is key.
It opens a world of greater understanding,
self motivation and joy.
It opens a world of possibilities!
