Elementary Reading Curriculum Q&A


The Teaching and Learning Department worked with our Elementary Textbook Team of teachers, administrators, and parents to thoroughly review new elementary Reading materials throughout the 2021-2022 school year. We selected Scholastic Literacy™. It is a comprehensive system of materials based on the five critical components of reading instruction, as identified through the National Reading Panel Report from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Those components are Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension.
