About Us - Reading

 At Reservoir East we take great pride in our reading program.  We have shown impressive gains in our school's reading results.  We base our teaching around reading strategies that encourage students to “think aloud” about their reading.  These strategies are used throughout the school and we have a consistent teaching approach.  Students participate in reading conferences where reading skills are practised, teachers guide readers and new goals are set.  Students are frequently assessed using the Fountas and Pinnell assessment system to assure they are given work that is at the right level for them.
