“Durin the day I wunder how am I going to gut al of my wek dun befor the kid gut home. Wen thy get home my day is jest startn thy all want me to sit and lestn to what they did one is hungy and then they all want to et tv makes my ers hut dor is slamin the naibor kid runin in ot wen th dad gts home it wil gt quit I have to fin somthg fo diner an he wil gt the kid to help thy all argu abot wh is doin the dishs finly is bd time an I cn rlx anuthur da is dun.” The above dossier can be read and comprehended by many. However, the difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition, poor spelling and decoding ability, and reading comprehension will lead to growth in school dropouts and a decline in high school graduation statistics. What educational level did the mom speaking above likely achieve? Will she be able to assist her own children in attaining the educational goals that will enable them to succeed? Since Reading is truly the root of all learning we need to provide life's self sustaining skills at a very early age. Our parish is expressing a desire to address cognitive abilities via multi-sensory learning, and the phasing in of a program called D.I.B.E.L.S. To overcome problems in reading many children need specific training routines on an on-going basis. For such interventions to thrive we need reliable Language Arts materials. I have discovered intervention products called “Reading Rods: Learning to Read is a Snap.” The variety of durable materials will facilitate intervention centers for all of our Kindergarten through third grade learners for years to come. Of course, all students will benefit from the intervention program, for fluent reading and comprehension at an early age will remain with them for a lifetime. Thank you for your support, and desire to have our children reading. Demographics:Frost School's PreKindergarten through eighth grade caters to 328 students of which 286 are classified as reqular education and 42 as students with disabilities. Of the total 328, 55% are on free and reduced price lunches.
