    • Fundations is taught in K-3 to build foundational skills (phonics, vocabulary, fluency, high frequency word study, and handwriting) 
    • Wit and Wisdom (K-5) is a knowledge-building curriculum that develops language comprehension and writing through complex texts on high interest topics with the long-term aim of improved achievement in literacy for all students.
