Learning Programs  -- Learning How to Read and Reading for Comprehension

FOR SUMMER READING ASSIGNMENT PROGRAMS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL, CLICK HERE

Our program starts with a phonetically based approach to learning how to read. It is vitally important that the child become able to decode words rapidly with meaning. Research shows that understanding the relationship between letters and sounds is fundamental in learning to read. The English language is 85% phonetic. Sight words that must be memorized make up the balance. The “Learning to Read” program addresses both.

With this approach, the young student gains the ability and confidence to read with fluency. Specific exercises to develop the child’s visual and auditory discrimination abilities are used, and fine motor skills are also emphasized from the beginning.

The sounds of vowels and consonants are taught in a specific order. The child progresses to sounding out common short words. Then the student begins to use a series of storybooks and workbooks with phonetically controlled texts. As the student develops reading fluency the program’s focus shifts towards an emphasis on vocabulary and grammar development to assist in reading comprehension.

Vocabulary and comprehension are taught through a curriculum that extends through the AP English level. The words that are emphasized are selected based on the frequency of use in the English language, grade level literature, and their use on standardized tests. The diverse and interesting exercises aid the student in understanding the meaning of each word in a variety of ways.

The grammar program teaches in a simple and direct manner. Concepts are presented in small increments and are followed by daily practice. The early focus is on capitalization, punctuation, parts of speech, and sentence structure, with each exercise building on the previous set. Repetition promotes mastery of all grammar aspects.

Worksheet sets designed for reading comprehension help the student to practice vocabulary and critical thinking skills in preparing for tests such as the ISEE, SSAT and SAT. To see a sample of the reading curriculum, CLICK HERE!
