SCHOOL SERVICES and PROGRAMS
Three 4th grade students share their feelings about Sound Reading and explain two types of activities they are working on in the program. English language learners are placed in five different sound reading learning paths to further enhance their understanding of the English writing system.
Sound Reading Solutions in Schools
Reading is the key to academic success. If English is not your first language, your brain will have to be trained to recognize the sounds in English words. Sound Reading Solutions (SRS) tackles sound and word patterns without memorization or drills in the natural manner that native English speakers learn. SRS enhances the student’s ability to understand English phonics and spelling rules. SRS can help speed up the process and ” wire” the English sounds into the English Language Learners brain by doing specific exercises to help *hear & say the sounds* of English.
We can be an effective partner in providing Evidence-Based Reading instruction for English Language Learners working on pronunciation, reading and spelling in English. Our programs can be an extension of, or used in addition to, your English language arts curriculum. Sound Reading programs can take place during or after school hours.
