Recipe for Reading Presentation

At the Board of Education meeting on Thursday, November 17, 2016, Ms. Janet Seabold, Mrs. Annette Farelli, and Ms. Lillian Pagano engaged the Board in a presentation about the Recipe for Reading program.  Recipe for Reading is a phonics/word study program that is currently being implemented in grades K - 3.  Recipe for Reading is a research-based, comprehensive, multisensory, phonics-based reading program that is designed for beginning readers in grades K–3 or at-risk and struggling readers in grades 1–6. The program incorporates visual, auditory, and kinesthetic techniques to teach and reinforce phonetic concepts, as researched in the Orton Gillingham method for word study . The district began piloting the program in Kindergarten two years ago and has phased into the remaining grade levels over the past two years.  For more information on the Recipe for Reading program, please click on the link below:
