Welcome to Reading Alberta’s very first blog post! We’re so excited that you have visited our
website and are reading this very first article! We really want to know how you’re doing now
that the first month new curriculum is underway.
We would like to know if you have found our website helpful? If so, what, specifically? If not, what are you searching for and can’t find? What would like to see more of? What can we help you with? We will truly strive to answer your question and try to post resources that you need and information that will help you along this journey.
We just posted our October lessons today. We hope that you find the clean and explicit
layout easy to follow and that you’re checking off phonograms and concepts as you move
along. Some other materials we have added to help supplement October’s lessons are taken from one of our favourite websites; Florida Centre for Reading Research
https://fcrr.org/student-center-activities We know that these activities will support the
teaching that you are doing. You may want to use these as literacy centres to supplement and give your students further practice with or use as large group activities.
Finally, we are planning a virtual “Open House” so we can hear directly from you. We want to see you face to face (over zoom, of course!) to hear about your celebrations, stresses and
questions surrounding the ELAL curriculum in grades K-3. Please watch for an invitation once
you have subscribed to Reading Alberta!
Thank you for the amazing, courageous and life changing work that you are doing in the
classrooms all around Alberta!
Kira and Suzanne
