Literacy needs include strategies that focus on reading, writing and oral language for early and emergent readers and writers. This usually begins with a solid foundation of phonemic awarenessand a mastery of the alphabetic principle. As students acquire a sight word vocabulary, learn to decode and discover the patterns that exist in words they develop the skills they need to apply meaning to the text. Authentic reading does not exist without understanding. It can be said that in Division one, students learn to read, and in Division two, students read to learn. Comprehension strategies become important as students master the decoding process.
