A Fundations Challenge from Scholars and Mrs. Cross! #resvt #cesuvt
RES scholars in kindergarten through second grade will be working with the Fundations programs as one part of their literacy experiences. Fundations incorporates systematic and explicit phonics instruction. This combined with strong literacy practices and instruction are important to literacy development. Fundations introduces many aspects of word structure and sentence structure as well as developing written and oral expression. Guides and information will be sent home to families periodically throughout the school.
Fundations provides children of varying learning abilities with a foundation for reading and spelling. It provides teachers with the skills and tools needed to present a structured, sequential, and cumulative phonics/spelling program using multisensory teaching techniques.
Fundations thoroughly teaches the Foundational Skills of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and significantly supports other CCSS standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language (http://www.fundations.com/overview.aspx).
