Red Learning Groups (Emergent Readers) 
This group is most appropriate for rising first graders who are pre-readers and eager and excited to begin their reading journey. This reading group will focus on developing phonological awareness and strengthening relationships between letters & sounds.  Children will work on segmenting and blending sounds, handwriting of letters, sight word instruction, and early literacy skills. 

Orange & Yellow Learning Groups (Early Readers)
This group is most appropriate for 1st and 2nd graders who are beginning to read, but need a boost to take off with decoding and confidence. These children may already recognize 20 or more sight words, can already touch and read simple books with repeating patterns, and may attempt to "sound out" simple words. The orange and yellow groups will work on decoding and spelling short vowel pattern words with blends, will write simple sentences from dictation, and will work on fluency and expression when reading.

Green & Blue Learning Groups ( Early/Fluent Readers)

This group is most appropriate 2nd and 3rd graders who are looking for support. These readers can read most single syllable words, but need strategies for attacking multi-syllable words. This group will study syllable patterns and syllable division rules to improve spelling and reading fluency.
