The Thoreau Park Title 1 teachers are working with students to improve their reading skills. Struggling readers in grades K-3 receive extra instruction in the five essential components of reading: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and text comprehension. This instruction takes place for approximately 30-60 minutes daily in a small group setting. This year, Title 1 is utilizing the Reading Mastery program with our K-2 nd grade students, and the Corrective Reading Program with our Third Grade students. This evidence-based intervention helps students master essential decoding and comprehension skills. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the Title 1 program with our Thoreau Park families. Please take an opportunity to explore our Title 1 website and/or join us for one of this year’s Title 1 events. We look forward to our partnership for reading!
