Early Literacy Program Overview

The Early Literacy program at Banded Peak school provides individualized reading support in a small group setting to students in the combined grade one and two classes as well as reading support for those students in grades three and four.  Students who require support with reading (decoding as well as comprehension) are referred to the Early Literacy teacher by the home room teacher.

Literacy Programs:

Lively Letters:  “Lively Letters is a research-based program that trains students in the critical skills of phonemic awareness, letter sound associations, and the ability to decode (read) and encode (spell) words fluently.”

Kindergarten to grade 4 teachers use components of the Lively Letters program in their classrooms.  This program is also used in the Early Literacy program to provide consistency.

Precision Reading:  “Precision Reading is a short, daily, research-based remedial reading activity designed to improve reading fluency, sight word vocabulary, and passage comprehension”.

It is used with students in grades 3 and 4 and this time.

Book Club:  All students in the grade 3 and 4 classrooms are grouped to provide focused, strategic literacy support during the silent reading block.  These groups are led by the classroom teachers as well as the learning support, literacy and learning commons teachers.

Wee Reads: This program is provided to a small group of students in kindergarten and grade one.  The purpose of this program is to foster a love of reading, deepen vocabulary and verbal skills, as well as provide a base for literacy learning.
