Targeted Reading Instruction for Grades 2, 3, & 4 Students have direct instruction on ways to improve word study skills, grammar usage, comprehension, and fluency.

In addition, the students are scheduled to visit the local Mount Vernon Library to encourage opportunities to enhance literacy skills, as well as incorporate computer literacy with their individual presentation.
