The “Walk to Read” instructional reading program in grades 1 through 5 allows students to work in reading groups based on reading levels. Reading groups are adjusted based on regular assessment data in order to ensure that students are progressing.
In grades 1 one through 5, teachers specialize in math or science/social studies. The purpose of the science/social studies specialist is to target science and social studies content instruction and to provide more authentic informational text reading for the students.
