Reading and Language Arts

In Northside, we follow a balanced literacy framework that includes the explicit and systematic teaching of foundational literacy skills.  The instructional components within our balanced literacy framework promote the gradual release of responsibility from teacher to student.  Our students engage in literacy learning during read alouds of mentor texts, shared and performance reading/writing, mini lessons, small group instruction, and independent reading/writing.

Reading for pleasure is the single biggest factor in success later in life. Children who read for pleasure are the ones who are most likely to fulfill their ambitions. If a child reads, they will succeed.
