Our approach to reading includes systematic phonics and daily exposure to good literature during read-aloud time. Good books captivate the imagination of children and motivate them to want to be readers. Good books teach vocabulary and a fascination with words. Good books teach geography, history, science, and most importantly, the condition of human life. Good books open the mind of the child to the whole world. Our reading program for grade 1 continues the development of reading skills.
