|(RF) Reading Foundations|
Narrative for Reading Foundations Strand:
The Foundational Skill standards are directed toward fostering students' understanding and working knowledge of:
Phonics and Word Study: The relationship between letters and sounds in language. Students will learn to recognize high-frequency words automatically. Students will also practice recognizing words with irregular spellings (sometimes referred to as sight words).
Fluency: The ability to read smoothly and expressively. A fluent reader is one who reads and understands what he or she is reading. Fluency skills should increase as learners progress from beginning to advanced.
The foundational skills standards are not meant to be taught as isolated skills. These standards are necessary and important components of an effective, comprehensive reading program designed to develop proficient readers with the ability to comprehend what is read across a range of text types and content areas (social studies, science).
