The goal of Fortis Academy is to have each student fall in love with reading while reading fluently at their grade level or above. As classical educators, our desire is teach our children biblical virtue and equip them with effective reading skills in which to enter into the Great Conversation and read the Great Books.
Treasury Tracker – Fortis Academy’s Reading Log. A student record of everything they read throughout the school year.
Sight Word Flash Cards – Flash cards to accompany the Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Reading for Kindergarten and First Grade.
NARRATION DIRECTIONS UNDER CONSTRUCTION – PLEASE DO NOT USE WHAT IS CURRENTLY ON THIS PAGE
Simply put, a narration is a retelling of what the child has just read. It is appropriate in the Grammar school for this to be an oral exercise and it should be regularly and intentionally done by the student after independent reading or read-alouds. If your student struggles with composing a written narration, they can dictate and then copy. They will naturally want to skip this step as they become more confident and experienced.
