First-graders Enthrall Nebo School Board of Education

r First-graders at Canyon Elementary school displayed their love for the USA at Nebo School District’s October Board Meeting.

Penny McEntire, Literacy Specialist at Canyon Elementary, talked about the positive impact Tier II literacy programs have made in their school.

With 50 students currently in need of Tier II instruction at Canyon Elementary, school technicians have helped students through research-based instruction and through small group intervention. Tier II literacy instruction includes having students participate in rereading previous texts for fluency, word work and comprehension work, small group guided writings, and experience with new texts.

As a result of the instruction, Pre and Level A readers are transitioning out at a higher rate than before.

Dressed in patriotic colors, first-graders at Canyon Elementary sang “God Bless the U.S.A.” and “What’s more American”.

From the song “What’s more American”, the students reminded everyone that, “Ours is a heritage second to none. We are a nation united as one. Our Founding Fathers gave us that start, and their love for our country lives on in ev’ry heart”, including those at Canyon Elementary!
