The literacy room curriculum will follow the curriculum maps of homeroom classrooms, but will use resources and differentiated instructional strategies specifically designed to meet the individual learning needs of the students. Students in grades 1 and 2 will be following the Super Kids reading program, with additional support using Explode the Code (phonics reinforcement) and daily fluency passages. Students in grades 3-5 will follow the C.I.A. approach to reading novels by Reading Side-by-Side by Sarah Collinge. These units of study expose students to longer, more complex texts through instructional read-aloud modeling. Students will be exposed to a variety of genres while being explicitly taught skills aligned with the Common Core State Standards. In addition we will use other resources including Reading A-Z fluency materials, as well as online and other supplemental articles/texts.
