Our academic offerings, Kindergarten through grade 2 have also seen remarkable progress with the on-going implementation of our Balanced Literacy components of Shared and Guided Reading, Writer's and Reader's Workshop, Core Literature, and Word (vocabulary) Work. We feel encouraged that our children are reading and writing earlier and more fluently as a result.
The following resources are used to support the implementation of the balanced literacy program:
• Authentic Children's Literature
• Leveled Texts
• Rebecca Sitton Spelling program
• Units of Study for Primary Writing by Lucy Calkins
