King Edward Elementary School
Every morning, in every classroom, you will find students at KEE pouring over books. Teaching students to read and enjoy books is a priority for every teacher at our school. You will find “Word Walls” in all classes, and all Language Arts instruction begins with a few minutes of “word work” involving those words.
The skills students learn during those few minutes are applied during guided reading, which also happens in all classrooms. A small group of students will read a book with their teacher that is at their particular level. During this time, teachers give individual help to students as they work their way through a new story. When students are presented with a book that is at their instructional level, reading becomes interesting, enjoyable, and fun!
