Bilingual Children:

Creative Corner offers a program for children who speak English fluently, but whose reading and writing are not at the same level. The gap between these skills is not surprising as reading and writing in English are taught with specific methods and programs.  

At Creative Corner, using the Guided Reading program as organized by Fountas and Pinnell, our teachers help children develop and improve reading strategies and then support them as they read. Using regular assessment, including running records and miscue analysis, our teachers select books and stories that will offer challenges and opportunities for problem solving, but that are easy enough to read with some fluency. Our students, from kindergarten through middle school, work with books that include both exciting new publications and classic examples of children’s literature. To teach and improve writing skills we use a ‘Writing Workshop’ program that employs multiple drafts and constructive conferencing. Teachers and students assess together using the ‘6 Traits of Good Writing’ method. As with our Reading Program, the focus is on each child achieving his or her personal best.

These methods of instruction for reading and writing are widely used in the USA,

and at Creative Corner they are implemented by experienced teachers trained in their theory and practice. As both Guided Reading and Writing Workshop focus on the child as an individual with specific needs and strengths, they are the perfect match for children living and learning in two languages.
