Reading Programs

In this program students learn to read independently. Your child will learn phonics and sight word skills and develop the confidence and excitement about reading that will make first grade a big success.



Your child will learn how to blend sounds together to read words through in-class phonics instruction and through interactive online lessons at home that are tailored to your child’s reading level. Fun instruction and activities provide the repetition your child needs to build a strong foundation in phonics.


Sight Words

In this program, students learn to read the most common words they’ll encounter, such as that and was. Your child will learn sight words through in-class instruction and through interactive online lessons that are customized for your child’s reading level.


Independent Reading

Students in this program learn to read independently in wonderful books at the right level of difficulty. Parents attend class with their child and learn how to support their child’s reading. You’ll also receive guidance for choosing the best books for your child to read after the program and throughout first grade.


Love of Reading

In this program your child will develop a love of books and reading. In each class, the teacher reads aloud from wonderful picture books and leads comprehension-building discussions and enrichment activities that foster a love of reading. This positive experience with books will motivate your child to learn to read.
