Curriculum & Materials

SAReads provides professional teaching materials and books for tutors to use during reading instruction sessions. Tutors instruct students to read based on the five components of reading instruction or the “scientific method of teaching reading.” Each tutoring session is divided between developing literacy skills using the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) curriculum and reading aloud using the Scholastic Guided Reading Program. In addition to reading, 4th and 5th graders develop writing skills using Scholastic Short Reads and Google Classroom.

A Book for Every Child

Children enrolled in SAReads tutoring receive new books for their home library at winter, spring, and summer breaks. SAReads also provides books to younger siblings so they can begin their reading journey prior to entering kindergarten.
