Save The Children
In School
To provide additional support, staff members work with select groups of struggling readers during the school day to provide tutorials in phonics, sight word growth, comprehension and vocabulary enhancement. Emergent reader activities are also available for children in kindergarten and 1st grade.
After School
Save the Children's literacy program provides children in kindergarten through 8th grade with the opportunity to increase their reading achievement by supplying the tools they need to develop reading skills and the guidance and support they need to grow as readers. The hallmark of our literacy initiative is the Literacy Block, which consists of an hour of activities that support increased reading achievement including guided independent reading practice, fluency-building support and listening to books read aloud.
