The past two years have left students with greater gaps in their foundational literacy skills. Educators are now being tasked with addressing those needs in order to give students the tools to become proficient readers. This requires a deeper understanding of Phonics and Word Study knowledge and the ability to assess, identify and address unfinished teaching. In this series, we will be exploring the foundations of how students learn to read, quick assessments; and a variety of tools  to support teachers in teaching these necessary skills to students in grades 3-8.​
