REALLY GREAT READING
Really Great Reading is a program our school is using to increase phonics skills and fluency in our students. Your child has been utilizing the methods used in this program during their daily WIN time in the literacy lab. In addition to the program, your child participates in whole and small group reading activities to increase comprehension and fluency (speed at which they read).
Words can be broken into smaller chunks which can make them easier to decode.

How many vowels are in the word?
Are the vowels together or apart?
