Our classroom will be using a reading program from Harcourt Brace publishers. This program supports the Idaho Reading Indicator or IRI which is given in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. This series provides wonderful children’s literature to help with comprehension skills, phonic analysis, and conventional spelling. The students will be encouraged to use their phonic skills in their daily spelling.
Fall Reading Skills:
Read a story
Answer comprehension questions
Sound out words (these may be real or made up words such as ub, kam)
