Students at the elementary and intermediate campuses (K-6th grade) are using the SPIRE curriculum. SPIRE stands for Specialized Program Individualizing Reading Excellence. It is based on Orton-Gillingham methodology. SPIRE is a research-based program that is built on important factors related to reading and literacy instruction. It addresses the principles of best practices and set forth by leading researchers in the field of literacy. The lessons in SPIRE provide engaging tools designed to systematically and successfully guide students to comprehensive abilities in phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
SPIRE provides a sequenced lesson plan structure that gradually moves students through a developmental process from emergent levels of literacy to early reading to accomplisted, fluent reading.
All sentences and stories in the SPIRE readers and workbooks are fully decodable.
