BOOST began offering Head Start to Reading classes in January 2017. Until we find an affordable location, classes will be held in a home setting in Fairfield. BOOST is currently offering some of the original Head Start to Reading classes and few classes original to BOOST. Children only attend class once a week, for 55 minutes a week! Each session lasts 10 weeks.
It's amazing to see what children can learn in only 10 lessons!
In a small group setting, we first introduce students to the alphabet in the ABC/Fine Motor class. Then we teach students to recognize 22 sight words in the Head Start to Reading class. In Next Steps to Reading, we build on that knowledge by teaching students how to figure out words on their own! Finally we put it all together in the Write Track to Reading class by teaching children how to write the letters of the sounds they hear in words!
