  Layers of Student Practice to Boost Student Outcomes

Practice is imperative and practice makes perfect! We provide a multitude of opportunities for student practice within our lessons. Our guided student practice includes teacher-led routines and classroom activities. It also includes the use of our student magnetic letter tile kits, which make the learning sticky. Additionally, research shows that the act of handwriting is an important part of imprinting what you learn. Our student workbooks and handwriting (K-1) use this complex neurological task to solidify learning. Each practice element is essential to providing the repetitions necessary to ensure that students acquire the foundational reading skills needed to be successful across the curriculum, K-12. For Primary and Elementary school students, we also have digital student practice portals, the Reading Playgrounds. They are independent student practice portals that reinforce what students learn in the classroom. They provide individualized reporting and progress monitoring. This allows teachers and school administrators the ability to group and differentiate instruction, monitor growth, and provide the best opportunity for student outcomes.
