READING AND WRITING
Our Academic Enrichment program emphasizes Reading and Writing. Our Orton-Gillingham trained and certified staff will provide students with 75 minutes of small group instruction. During these 75 minutes, students will engage in lessons that are explicit, direct and focused on the structure of language. It invokes the use of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic pathways to improve fluency, vocabulary development and reading comprehension.
Students will also receive 75 minutes of writing instruction. The students will be guided through multisensory, explicit and systematic approaches to writing. These approaches are designed to provide clear strategies, methods and supports for increased student success in the area of writing. The use of graphic organizers supports students through the prewriting stage of writing.
Expanding Expression Tool (EET) supports students in improving their oral and written expression. This tool provides students with a hands-on approach to describing and defining. It provides a visual and tactile way to facilitate improved language organization.
Story Grammar Marker is another manipulative tool that supports in the development of reading, writing and speaking skills. This tool provides modeling and guided practice for helping students talk about and write narrative pieces of writing.
