Balanced Literacy

Arbor Heights follows a Balanced Literacy program that combines reading and writing skills. Reading practices include interactive read alouds, phonics instruction, shared reading, and guided reading. Writing practices include mini-lessons, shared reading, and word work. (Writing genres include Narratives, Informational Texts, and Argument/Opinion.) This model allows teachers to confer one-on-one with students and to differentiate instruction to accommodate all levels of readers and writers.
