Zion Lutheran School’s innovative Reading Lab provides leveled, guided reading instruction to all of our kindergarten through 2nd-grade students.
With a 6:1 student to teacher ratio, students receive leveled reading instruction four times a week. During this time, essential strategies that make up a skilled reader such as word work, comprehension, high-frequency words, book discussion, familiar reading, and writing are addressed.
The beauty of this program is that a variety of reading levels can be addressed at the same time providing the individualized challenges that each student needs. Our reading lab groups are fluid and are changed to meet the needs of each reader.
Our goal in targeting the early stages of becoming a reader is that we are creating lifelong readers in the process.
We strive to help students develop critical minds and a life-long love of learning that guides choices and can transform lives.
Our focus on individual students strengths ignites curiosity, creativity, grit and resilience in our students.
We are committed to each and every child growing their faith and love of God, and our students emerge ready to serve and succeed with Christ as their compass.
