The Fluent Readers course is designed for students entering grade 2 in the fall. Students will expand their reading skills, including faster and more accurate reading and analyzing spelling patterns. This program is structured to allow for simple, predictable transitions from Reading to play. Students will improve reading fluency through repeated readings with phonological awareness. Through play, projects and hands on learning, students will understand the major components of reading comprehension, including but not limited to imagery, inferencing, cause and effect, and vocabulary.
