  • Kindergarteners start strong with Reading Mastery/Corrective Reading

    “It is important to recognize that the goals of phonics instruction are to provide children with key knowledge and skills and to ensure that they know how to apply that knowledge in their reading and writing. In other words, phonics teaching is a means to an end” veteran educator Beth Trefzger, interventionist at Woodrow Wilson Primary School, explained to parents during a Parent University workshop this week. Trefzger is speaking directly about the systematic phonics instruction provided to students through the direct instruction model that begins in kindergarten.
