CSD Reading Corner - Reading at School

Many people think that learning how to read happens naturally like learning to talk.  In reality, learning how to read is a complex process that requires explicit instruction in both the foundational skills for decoding and the comprehension skills for understanding and thinking critically a variety of texts.

Canyons uses brief, standardized literacy assessments (Reading Inventory, Acadience) in order to measure student growth, set goals for students, and identify gaps in student learning.  The assessments are administered in the fall, winter, and spring.  You may find your student’s data in Skyward Family Access. There you will see your child’s data and a short explanation of how to read the data.  You may also contact your child’s teacher.
