Unlocking Children’s Unlimited Potential Through Reading™
Hitting The Target
Children’s Choice initiative has been recognized by the Michigan Department of Education as a highly-effective program for training educators to teach multi-sensory, structured, and sequential language skills.
Our researched-based structured literacy program builds a solid phonetic foundation, teaching students to interact with the specific syllable types and patterns in our language. We also incorporate a comprehensive and engaging Greek and Latin component to boost reading comprehension across the curriculum.
We provide comprehensive professional development, both in-person and virtual, catered to each school’s individual needs.
Simply put, Children’s Choice Initiative seeks to “Unlock Children’s Unlimited Potential Through Reading!™”
Our data consistently shows that children make multiple year growth in reading per each school year using our program essentials. This is exactly what is needed at this time as schools begin to emerge from pandemic and distance learning!
Time for a Wake Up Call
The percentage of students in Michigan who performed at or above the NAEP Proficient level was 32 percent in 2019. This percentage was not significantly different from that in 2017 (32 percent) and in 1998 (28 percent).
We need bold initiatives backed by proven practices to make an impact in our literacy rates. Working together with the Michigan Department of Education via grants for Early Childhood Literacy, Children’s Choice Initiative seeks to empower teachers, transform classrooms, and change lives with the research-based best practices of teaching Structured Literacy.
“I am very excited to continue to see growth in my students far beyond what I have seen in previous years. I think the key is two things, 1) the systematic approach to the process. I try to incorporate as much of the Children’s Choice Initiative Curriculum as I can into each day so that it is repetitive, and 2) the hands-on and kinesthetic approach works for all kids.”
