Aprendo Leyendo is a classroom program for teaching reading. It is specially developed so that, through it, children acquire precision, automaticity and fluency to reach an optimal level of reading comprehension. Aprendo Leyendo includes two years of instruction to be implemented through second grade of elementary school. The goal is for children to learn to read and understand texts at an early age and then learn by reading other content.
Aprendo Leyendo is appropriate for all beginning readers and for children at risk of learning to read difficulties. The program incorporates teaching practices based on the latest available scientific evidence about the brain during the literacy process. In line with these practices, it teaches in a clean, systematic and multisensory way: (i) phonological awareness, (ii) reading, decoding and understanding texts; and (iii) spelling, handwriting, and grammar.
