Our campus has been provided an Early Literacy Specialist that supports teachers and students in the primary grades. Our mission is to solidify the foundational reading skills needed to be successful readers and to infuse the passion of literacy in our students’ early stages of development. A focal point of instruction with our young readers is the strengthening phonemic awareness and phonics to ensure our students are accelerating through the stages. The usage of all data sources to include their TPRI, Tejas Lee, Fountas and Pinnell, formal and informal data is what drives our grouping and instructional decisions. Anchoring their phonemic awareness and graphophonemic skills with written, pictorial, or graphic support will enable students to learn to literate in reading and the writing system.
