Reading is Our Top Priority!

Reading is the essential skill all children need in order to learn other subjects in school. Having fun while learning to read is a focus in every classroom at CES. Students work daily to increase their skills in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, accuracy, decoding, comprehension, sight words and expanding their vocabulary.

Mrs. Knaup, Mrs. Coughlin, Mrs. White and Mrs. Kouba offer reading interventions at Columbia Elementary School. Some of the interventions include:

Reading Recovery - a one-on-one daily, intensive reading intervention.

Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) - 30 minute sessions in a small group to strengthen a child’s reading and writing skills.

Guided Reading Groups - 30 minute sessions to improve a student's fluency, accuracy, comprehension, sight word recognition and decoding skills.

We are grateful to our aides, classroom teachers, special education teacher and Reading Interventionists for keeping reading a top priority at CES! πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ“˜
