Reading for Elementary Students
The first part of elementary school (Kindergarten – 3rd grade) is devoted primarily to learning to read – the mechanics of the reading process. In 4th grade, the shift to “reading to learn” begins. Students are expected to read more and understand what they read, absorbing crucial information.
If your child struggles with the mechanics of reading, or struggles to comprehend what he or she reads, proper learning cannot take place and your child will fall behind. RITES certified reading specialists pinpoint the skills each elementary student needs to improve and focuses each lesson on building these specific skills. RITES reading specialists know exactly how to approach each element of the reading process, and they deeply understand the distinct expectations for reading within this age range.
For students struggling with the mechanics of reading (phonemic awareness, decoding, encoding, fluency), RITES reading specialists are trained in specific, scientifically researched and proven multisensory teaching approaches, such as Orton-Gillingham, to remediate these skills so your child achieves reading success. Individual reading tutoring is available all year-round. RITES Summer Reading Programs incorporate these multisensory teaching approaches into a small-group setting for a socially dynamic and productive experience.
