Learning To ReadOur
Reading Excellence program teaches children how to read using a combination of
phonics and psycho-linguistics. Children begin by learning the alphabet by
sound rather than name. When the alphabet has been mastered, they advance to
other necessary skills (decoding, early inferencing, sequencing, and
identifying main ideas). From the very beginning, children enjoy the exercises
and quickly develop their skills and confidence as readers, building the
self-esteem essential for later academic success.
Reading's Twin: Writing
When students are ready,
writing is introduced. Clear writing is an expression of clear thinking.
Each student progresses at his/her own pace, ensuring mastery of reading and writing
basics. Once a student has completed the Reading Excellence program, he/she is
ready for the next step - improving comprehension - and is automatically
transferred into our Reading Comprehension program.
