This edLeader Panel covers how to effectively accomplish the six keys of early childhood reading and still make it fun, easy, and engaging for students, parents, and teachers. These six keys are:

  • Phonemic Awareness
  • Phonics
  • Blending
  • Fluency
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension

This panel of current administrators and teachers who use the 4 Weeks to Read program will speak to how and why the program is so effective in their school districts even during this time of COVID-19. This recorded edLeader Panel will be of interest to preK through elementary teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.

The 4 Weeks to Read program is not free, but specifically equipped to handle the challenges presented by online learning and even finds ways to incorporate printed materials (with Spanish and English available). This program can be used at home to help engage students and parents during this difficult time.
