Neuhaus Education Center Early Childhood Literacy Program

Kindergarten

Reading Readiness and Language Enrichment are both taught in Kindergarten classes at Hudson ISD. Language Enrichment consists of 3 years worth of lessons. Year 1 will be introduced in Kinder and completed in First grade. We have an accelerated scope and sequence for both Neuhaus courses. Other resources are used in Kindergarten from McGraw-Hill to ensure the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills are introduced to our classes. The following video provides information relating to the Reading Readiness course.

First-Third Grade

First and Second grade provide direct phonics support using Language Enrichment Year 1 and Year 2 respectively along with their McGraw-Hill basal series. Teachers have the flexibility within the basal to teach fluency, comprehension and grammar. Third grade uses year 2 as an intervention in either pull out or as an in class remediation.
Language Enrichment Year 1

Year 1 is introduced in Kinder and completed in First Grade at HISD. A sample of lesson 1.8 provides an example of the script used in the lesson for the letter S = (S).

Language Enrichment Year 2

Examples of scripted lessons for Language Enrichment Year 2 will provide insight on what teachers are required to say during a lesson.

Language Enrichment Year 3

Language Enrichment is not used as often at HISD as Year 1 and 2. It is available to our teachers in Grade 3 and above for review and extensions, if necessary.

Lesson Plans for Language Enrichment

Lesson planning guides are available for teachers in Language Enrichment.

Comprehension Mastery Checks

A variety of skills are assessed in the Mastery Checks.

Rapid Word Recognition Chart

Word recognition charts are included in the materials for each teacher.

MTA Readers

Readers were purchased for lower grades to use with Language Enrichment. Most any phonics reader will suffice for practice.
