Loudoun's Pathways to Reading and Writing
Sycolin Creek uses the Loudoun's Pathways to Reading and Writing program. This is a K-5 instructional model based on best practices in literacy instruction. Loudoun's Pathways uses a reading and writing workshop format which consists of some or all of the the following components: phonics instruction, word study, shared reading, guided reading, independent reading, read alouds, and writers workshop. As reading specialists we provide support by working with small groups of students in literacy groups. We reinforce classroom instruction with word study, guided reading, and guided writing.
