    What is Rooted in Reading?

    Rooted in Reading is a curriculum that was created to enhance the Language Arts instruction in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classrooms. Teachers read purposefully-selected picture books to their students each week.  Students are actively engaged in listening to and discussing each text throughout the read-aloud.  Before, during, and after the read-aloud, teachers guide book conversations through thought provoking discussion questions.  With Rooted in Reading, the learning process continues through targeting specific skills and standards as students interact with this text all week. Activities for each text have been designed to assure students are actively thinking, making connections, and responding to the text in a meaningful way.  This curriculum focuses on deepening comprehension, developing and expanding vocabulary, and integrating language skills with the use of a mentor text.

    What are the benefits of using picture books and read-alouds?

    1. Students make deep and meaningful connections to the books.
    2. Students experience growth in their background knowledge.
    3. Students’ interest in reading increases.
    4. Using a read-aloud allows an opportunity for students to reflect.
    5. Picture books provide a safe space for classroom discussions.
    6. Interactive read-alouds enhance and enrich the classroom community.
    7. It allows teachers to model effective reading strategies in a controlled area.
    8. Picture books provide a non-threatening environment where reluctant and skilled readers can flourish.
    9. Reading aloud a picture book builds a bridge between language and reading. The read-aloud shows students how language works in context.
    10. Incorporating read-alouds in the classroom exposes students to multiple genres that they may not gravitate towards on their own.

    How is Rooted in Reading structured?

    Teachers are provided with a set of lesson plans that includes activities and resources for comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar. All of the components are focused around one main read-aloud that is introduced at the beginning of the week, reread throughout the week, and referred to during all of the lessons

    How does Rooted in Reading address the grade-level standards?

    Rooted in Reading focuses on one or more comprehension standard each week. We also spiral comprehension skills throughout the year so that students have ample exposure and practice. Rooted in Reading does not teach the skills in isolation. The read-aloud serves as a mentor text throughout the week where the students are analyzing the text, making connections, and digging deeper with comprehension by participating in intentional conversations pertaining to the read-aloud.
