Reading Educational Program

Early Scholars PK-1

Growing Scholars helps our young readers develop a love for reading. Our curriculum is designed to give our young readers the strategies needed to be successful. We focus on letter recognition, phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, reading and writing in a fun and quick paced manner. Growing Scholars teaches the alphabet by directly relating it to the interest of each individual child. This process allows students an immediate connection to the process of identifying with the alphabet.

Growing Scholars Reading Program for K-12

Growing Scholars reading program focuses on the five essential components of literacy through a balanced literacy approach to teaching. The reading program focuses on phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency through reading and writing. Strategies will be taught throughout the program to develop independent readers that will be able to comprehend and infer with information from the text. Our tutors will provide a wealth of lessons and strategies designed to meet the individualized learning needs of each student.

Phonemic Awareness – Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate the individual sounds in spoken words. It includes the understanding that the sounds of spoken language work together to make words.

Phonics – Phonics defines the relationships between sounds (phonemes) and letters/spellings that represent sounds in writing (graphemes). Phonics instruction helps children recognize familiar words accurately and automatically and also helps them decode unfamiliar words.

Fluency – Fluency is the ability to read text accurately and quickly. Fluency forms a bridge between word recognition and comprehension. Fluent readers recognize words and comprehend simultaneously.

Vocabulary – Vocabulary skills offer the ability to store information about the meanings and pronunciations of words. Types of vocabulary include: listening, speaking, reading, and writing vocabulary.

Text Comprehension – Text comprehension is the ability to understand, remember, and communicate what has been read. Text comprehension strategies are sets of steps that focused, active readers use to make sense of text.
