Reading Street is a comprehensive reading-language arts program. It focuses on both reading and handwriting, while also helping students who do not know how to read or write to improve their auditory and oral language skills.
The center of the reading program used in our classroom is children’s literature. Children are given the opportunity to experience various types of literature, such as fiction, non-fiction, and poetry on a daily basis. The children even make their own books modeled after books read to them in class. Some books are individually made; others are class-made.
