Literacy at University Elementary School is taught and practiced throughout the day and across the curriculum as reading, writing, listening and speaking are integrated into all learning activities.

Our comprehensive program uses a balanced literacy approach in which students are provided explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, spelling and writing; bridged with shared and guided reading and writing activities to support students in reading of authentic, content area texts. Teachers have access to multiple resources, including the newly adopted. Benchmarks Curriculum.
