Language Arts: Our Language Arts curriculums use Super Kids© to prepare students to be readers, writers, and thinkers. Why does Sacred Heart use Superkids?
1. Systematic, Explicit Instruction: The Superkids Reading Program is a system of instruction. The step-by-step lessons build skills systematically as children progress from kindergarten through second grade, creating confident readers.
2. Decodable Text: As children learn new phonetic elements, they immediately apply these skills to engaging decodable literary and informational text. By second grade, children have learned the phonetic elements necessary to read text that isn't phonetically controlled.
3. Integration: Superkids integrates reading, spelling, handwriting, grammar, and composition into one program.
4. Motivation: Children love the engaging Superkids characters. Each character has a unique personality and interests. The Superkids stories capture the universal experiences of childhood. Our students in 2nd grade are still very engaged in this curriculum. The lessons grow with them.
By the time they finish the program, our students have acquired the linguistic understanding required to develop into a fully literate individual. After Superkids, third-graders can read on grade level with accuracy, fluency, and understanding in any reading program. Most importantly, our teachers say it’s the most effective reading program they have every used.
