With more than two decades of refining and improving the program, United for Reading Success (UFRS) provides a very high-quality and well-structured volunteer 1st grade reading program.
It is an efficiently run program that delivers results with minimal resources required from school staff. The intention of the UFRS program is to encourage children to enjoy books, support their efforts to learn to read and to celebrate their successes.
The UFRS program is aligned with AASD's reading curriculum and instruction and is intended to build confidence and create lifelong readers and learners.
The structure of each 30-minute session includes time for the tutor to read to the child and time to work together on a list of high frequency words.
For the last 10 minutes of each session, the child reads which provides practice and allows the child to discover new things, opening doors to new adventures, opportunities and a brighter future!
