Reach for Reading
Reach for Reading is a research-based, rigorous, and enriching curriculum with a bounty of resources to support students as they learn to read and navigate the English language. It fits beautifully with many programs and resources supported by the district, such as DLE and CORE reading.
*We only have teacher editions available for the KG text. Student materials can be printed from myNGconnect.
*If your 6th grade is considered part of the elementary, use the RFR curriculum. If 6th grade is part of the secondary, use the Collections curriculum.

A Note for SpEd Teachers
If you are not the teacher of record in Powerschool (for reading) then you will not automatically have access to your students’ data or the online resources. If you would like to be able to access these things, please reach out to Audra Lopez via email and she will manually add you as an instructor.

Is there a specific schedule I should be using to teach Reach for Reading?
The district has provided sample schedules for every grade level. These can be found in the curriculum map files on Google Drive. You are not required to use these schedules, but they can be a useful guide for creating a schedule that works for your class.
There is also a lesson-planning tool available on myNGconnect. This tool allows for lessons to be adjusted based on the length of your class period.
