One Student's Growth

Third grader Sophia went from Below Basic (2+ years behind) to meeting her school's end-of-year benchmark for Reading Comprehension in just 4 months!

Here are some of the ways we make it fun!

  • Play word games (say "clamp" but don't say /l/)

  • Build words with Post-Its ( write "sat" [S A T]. Now change "sat" to "mat")

  • Turn it around! Students become teachers and teach their pets (or tutors or stuffed animals) to read

  • Read graphic novels like Diary of a Pug, InvestiGators and Wings of Fire

  • Write crazy sentences and stories with words we're learning to spell!
