Classes are designed and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development. Programs are offered for students entering Kindergarten (4 and 5-year-olds) through Grade 11. Class sizes are limited and will run three days a week from July 23 through August 26. Class meeting days and times vary.
Students entering Kindergarten will learn beginning phonics and reading readiness skills, build comprehension, and develop a love of books and reading. This program lays the foundation for a stronger start in reading and school.
Students entering Grade 1 learn to read independently. They will learn phonics and sight words, build comprehension, and gain the skills and confidence needed for success in first grade.
Students entering Grade 2 will become fluent independent readers. The student will make significant gains in phonics and word-attack skills, fluency and comprehension and will develop confidence and a love of reading.
Students entering Grade 3 will become strong independent readers. They will develop the comprehension, fluency and long-word decoding skills needed to read longer books with ease, and will build confidence and a love of reading.
Students entering Grades 4 and 5 will make substantial gains in comprehension, long-word decoding skills, fluency and reading speed. The student will complete homework more quickly and easily, be more successful in school and become a strong enthusiastic reader.
Students entering Grades 6 through 8 will make substantial gains in comprehension while increasing reading speed. They also learn the best way to read textbooks, take notes and study for tests. As a result, students will compete homework more quickly and easily, get better grades and enjoy reading more.
Students entering Grades 9 through 11 will increase reading speed, make substantial gains in comprehension and learn study skills. This course is excellent preparation for the SAT, ACT and college.
