Elementary Literacy

In Spring 2016, St. Vrain Valley Schools completed the two-year process of selecting a new keystone curricular resource for elementary literacy instruction. Through selection and pilot processes driven by classroom teachers - including input from community members as well as the biliteracy, special education, and professional development offices - the district selected ReadyGen to aid teachers in building effective holistic practices. This adoption represents a key shift and renewed dedication within the district to help our youngest learners understand the connections between reading and writing, while building the complex habits of thinking key to lifelong success.

A publication titled Elementary Literacy; Important Aspects of ReadyGen was sent home in Thursday folders. This publication includes rich information about how ReadyGen will be utilized in classrooms to support literacy growth and achievement.

The District is also publishing a year-long series on family/community literacy. Each Wednesday, a different post will be published to support families on how you can help your children with literacy in the home. You can find the posts here.
