Our program

 

Our program has three unique elements – our teachers, our technology and our educational programming that work together to create a personalized experience for your child.

our education

At Hoot, we have the luxury of working one-on-one with every child and every teacher to develop an individual learning plan that grows with your child.

our lessons

A typical lesson is a guided reading session. Guided reading is an instructional approach where a teacher works directly with a student to make their way through a chunk of text (typically a levelled reader).

The book is carefully selected to be easy enough for the child to read, but hard enough that there will be teachable moments throughout. For our earliest readers, the text may simply be letters and short words, whereas our more advanced students may be working through a chapter book or a science text.

Peppered in with guided reading sessions will be personalized instruction and assessments, based on individual needs. The goal of these lessons is to helps students learn to use reading strategies such as context clues, letter and sound knowledge, and syntax or word structure, and to eventually use these strategies independently on their way to becoming independent readers.

our books

Our carefully curated library offers more than 600 high quality levelled texts, from award-winning publishers. Our selection includes both illustrated fiction and photographic non-fiction titles, with titles ranging from pre-reading foundation to advanced literacy.

Our library is levelled using the reputable Fountas & Pinnell system, where text is carefully classified according to various parameters, such as word count, number of different words, number of high-frequency words, sentence length, sentence complexity, word repetitions, illustration support, etc. These are A-Z reading levels, which are likely the same ones used in your child’s classroom.

Included as part of our program, our books are always available to Hoot reading students so that they can re-read them independently or with a parent at home.
