BEAT THE SUMMER SLIDE AND ORDER A SET OF OUR LEVELLED RAINBOW READERS AND ACTIVITIES FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
Very young children start to identify letters and sound them out and as they grow older, they learn to identify common words, and then start to read and write on their own. From a child's very first steps, we aim to instill in them a love and passion for reading. Learning how to read and write opens up limitless opportunities for children, giving them an entirely new way to communicate, to expand their imagination, and to acquire new information. Moreover, if children learn to enjoy reading and writing, they will further develop skills on their own and not see it as a chore or difficult task to avoid. To achieve this, THE STUDY ROOM has chosen to use the Rainbow Reading Programme.
Rainbow Reading & Writing
At THE STUDY ROOM, our literacy environment is supportive and student-centred. We gauge a child's receptivity to reading and writing and respond appropriately with levelled activities. Children are in small groups of up to four. Each child works on books and activities set at their instructional reading and writing level. We aim to motivate children to be interested in reading and writing, while their enthusiasm is kept as genuine as possible. The Rainbow Reading Programme has been designed specifically to meet the needs and interests of struggling readers & writers and students learning English. However, because of the wide range of high-interest stories and articles included in the collection, the programme is of interest and benefit to all students.
