Students need basic foundational skills in order to access the curriculum at every grade level. Basic concepts, vocabulary and phonemic awareness make up the foundation on which all academic skills are built. Additionally, social language development is a necessary component of language which requires explicit instruction. The Foundations Language Enrichment Program helps to build this strong foundation for learning through proper supports and skill development for students in grades K-2.
