Reading Rocks Junior

ELKP – Grade 1

Reading Rocks Junior is an early literacy intervention program for children in kindergarten and Grade 1 struggling with early literacy skills (i.e. letter sounds, letter names, sight words). Children work in small groups (2 – 4) and one-on-one on letter names and sounds, sight words and printing through fun, interactive activities. This program is for children showing signs of struggles with literacy skills.

What people have to say about Reading Rocks Junior:

It’s so worth it. The group sizes are small, the learning is individualized to the child’s needs, it’s extremely cost-effective and there’s probably a location convenient for you. 8 weeks made a world of difference for us!

My son LOVES going to Reading Rocks Jr. each week. It is so great for him to have such a positive experience about reading and knowing that learning can be fun.
– Reading Rocks Jr. Parent, Fall 2017

She’s having fun with letters now – doing rhyming games, using her Leapfrog products that she previously never was interested in, proudly showing me words she’s written and trying to spell. It made her proud of herself and she’s excited to learn now. Her last weeks at school were her best all year and she seemed excited to go as soon as started doing the Reading Rocks Jr. program. It boosted her confidence.
