Strong literacy skills set students up for a lifetime of success. First and foremost, the elementary teaching team at Waverly-Shell Rock works to develop a love of reading in each student. When students are engaged in quality literature, rich discussions about comprehension strategies, vocabulary and decoding can bloom. Additionally, our teachers work to support each student’s foundational skill development in reading and intervene when warranted. This year teachers are continuing to build their tiered system of supports for struggling readers while implementing new curricular materials. Together we’re working to help every student reach proficiency in their reading skills while developing a love for books.
