Our reading program is offered from Pre-K-12th Grade
Early Readers program for Pre-k – Kindergarten
Pre-Kindergarten age is when children are very interested in reading and have a special affinity for words. This is a great time to take advantage of their natural desire to read and enhance their skill. For these young readers we use multisensory materials like the moveable alphabet, pictures and words matching cards, sand paper letters, rhyming words, small objects that represent the beginning sounds of the alphabet etc. to help them recognize letters and make associations with their representative sounds.
- Recognize all uppercase and lower case letters of the alphabet
- Identify sounds associated with letters
- Short vowels
- Basic sight words and word recognition
- Long vowels
- Basic blends
Reading grade 1 through grade 12
Strong reading skills are essential to academic success because reading is fundamental to comprehension, writing and every other subject.
Our phonics-intensive program is appropriate for preparing for 1st grade or for readers who are struggling with phonics. Beginning reading provides a solid foundation from which to progress to higher reading levels that rely on fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
This program is appropriate for grades 1 through 12. It does not matter the grade or skill level of your child, we’ll design a personalized program tailored to your child’s needs.
Our balanced reading program will continue to develop your child’s reading skills and dramatically improve vocabulary and comprehension and recall. Our comprehensive assessment identifies your child’s grade level equivalencies for vocabulary and comprehension. From this baseline, we build vocabulary and comprehension by teaching fundamental reading skills until your child confidently reads and comprehends at or above his/her grade level.
Our Reading Comprehension tutoring program employs higher-order thinking skills for exceptional reading and comprehension.
Your child will learn to dissect their reading in the following ways:
- main idea
- drawing conclusions
- cause / effect
- critical thinking skills
- define vocabulary using context
- identifying story parts: plots, conflict, setting, and character analysis
