 Reading

Our Reading Curriculum is geared to use the balanced literacy approach, our students are engaged in Readers and Writers Workshop.  Following the Daily 5 structure, students rotate through 3 stations where they focus on:

  • Reading to Self
  • Working on Writing
  • Listening to Reading
  • Word Work
  • Reading to Someone

During station time, teachers pull small groups to work on word work, fluency and accuracy and reading comprehension.  All groups are individualized based on student’s DRA Level, Words Their Way Spelling Inventory, and individual needs. 

 According to our district’s policy, students entering 2nd grade are considered “on-level” based on our assessments level 18 DRA II.  For them to be considered “on-level” at the end of year, students need to be reading on a level 24 / 28 DRAII.
