• Elementary Language Arts and Reading Banner

    The Fort Bend ISD elementary language arts & reading curriculum is 100% aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and the science of reading. The curriculum is “balanced” in that it includes all the components of literacy – reading, writing, phonics, and word study while integrating listening, speaking, and thinking. All literacy components are necessary to build a life-long, successful reader and writer. By including all components of literacy, students gain the skills required to learn to read and read to learn. FBISD literacy curriculum and instructional practices are research-informed and in a continuous improvement cycle aligned with longitudinal, multi-year data as literacy instructional practices must be responsive to the differentiated needs of all FBISD students.
