Reading Warriors can be downloaded one day and implemented the next! It can also be introduced any time of the school year. The objective of the program is to teach students groups of Greek/Latin roots and stems in order to expand and deepen children’s vocabulary.This objective is met through a fun and interactive method. Additionally, the program supports the common core standards of instruction.
The Reading Warriors is an extension of The Reading Olympians program-although it is not necessary to complete Reading Olympians prior to Warriors instruction. The Warriors is based on 50 roots from Olympians to foster mastery learning and 50 additional roots. If you have not completed Olympians, all one hundred roots are new!
Reading Warriors provides teachers with all teacher and student materials needed to implement the program. Research supports the importance of vocabulary development for a child to become a quality reader and, as all teachers are aware, many of our children are lacking language skills. Reading Warriors engages all levels of readers in the study of words and their parts resulting in fun and quality vocabulary development.
The program offers the teacher the ability to differentiate the pace of implementation for each level of learner. Children with limited vocabulary will learn word parts (roots) in order to acquire word knowledge at a much faster pace. Children with a greater repertoire of word knowledge will gain a deeper understanding of words and their origin.
Reading Warriors is a comprehensive and engaging program that will have your students loving the study of words while strengthening and deepening their vocabulary. They will pace themselves through the ten groups of ten roots (named after Greek figures) and earn reading beads for their personalized reading necklaces. Ultimately, they will earn all ten of their reading tags and become a Reading Warrior. Please download the FREE Achilles set to get a feel for the program.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all Greek figures used in the program are actual Warriors. The term is used in a generic way to introduce the concept of Greek Mythology.
