My Project

This year, our entire group of first grade learners need extra support reading books with predictable patterns that they can decode using the strategies we are teaching them through our newly adopted phonics program.

Emerging readers need books at their levels, where they can use all of the amazing strategies first grade teachers are helping them learn.

New leveled readers for all first graders at our school will mean that all of our students learn to decode predictable books. Books that have vowel patterns, blends, and easily decodable text with pictures help young learners learn reading fundamentals. Help first graders learn to love reading!
