Love to Read. Learn to Read. Read to Learn.

Love to Read – through shared reading experiences that offer an introduction to early reading skills.
Learn to Read – by developing and guiding fluent reading practices.
Read to Learn – by supporting close, analytical reading skills to derive meaning from text.
