Literacy

Glenwood Elementary School’s District Literacy Program is built on sound, scientifically-based research.  It includes five areas of instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension. Reading and writing is taught in the “workshop model” with students collaborating in small groups and with partners. Children learn how to read and write by listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
