Building the Foundations of Literacy

for All Learners
  

Literacy, which includes reading, writing, talking, listening and thinking, is the building blocks of a successful learner. Engaging and motivating students to develop their literacy skills, along with a literacy action plan that includes specific steps to provide support for all learners is essential


The foundations of literacy, 

also known as vocabulary, phonological awareness, phonics, and fluency are necessary to  support comprehension. 


When a student has difficulty understanding grade-level text, most likely the foundations of literacy are NOT developed.
