Scott Foresman Reading Street ELA
The curriculum builds early literacy skills with instruction that moves from listening to blending and decoding, and then using letter sounds to write and spell words. Phonemic Awareness is tied to phonics using manipulative and routines. Then, the phonics skill is applied to text. Reading Street develops readers and writers by inspiring students to work for mastery as teachers use differentiated materials to personalize instruction. Students are motivated to learn with engaging, interactive resources. They build knowledge with literature that developed their vocabulary and understanding. Reading Street's lesson plans are aligned to the Arizona State Standards for English Language Arts Grades K-6.
