How a day in READING 1 looks: 

WHOLE GROUP: Students get instruction from the teacher in a traditional class setting where we practice vocabulary and read together

SMALL GROUP: Students break into a smaller group and get one on one instruction with the teacher. 

COMPUTERS: Students practice their READING, SPELLING, and WRITING skills on the computer using our READ180 software. Students are required to finish one segment per 6 weeks.

INDEPENDENT READING: Students engage in non-stop independent reading. This will result in students completing a book report at the end of each 6 weeks for a test grade.

The grades you see on the Parent Self Serve are not set in stone, they will not be finalized until the END OF THE 6 WEEKS!
