The StoryTown reading program targets kindergarten through sixth grade students. This reading and language arts curriculum developed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt meets Common Core goals at each of these grade levels.
This curriculum seeks to differentiate instruction to meet the individual needs of students in elementary and lower middle school grades while simultaneously engaging readers with carefully selected, award-winning material to make them actually want to read more. The program features a "2+2 then Review" pattern of instruction that enhances student skills at the same time it is helping them develop successful reading strategies for themselves. It also encourages acquisition of Tier 2 academic vocabulary.
