The Harrison Township School District's literacy program uses curricular resources that support the Science of Reading and New Jersey Student Learning Standards and continue to develop students' background knowledge of topics in science, history, and the arts.
- Heggerty is used in kindergarten to build phonological awareness.
- Fundations is used to build foundational skills, including, but not limited to: phonics, vocabulary, fluency, high frequency word study, and handwriting.
- Level K Geodes are used to build knowledge and develop language comprehension and writing. Level K Geodes are 48 unique books organized into four modules. They are designed to enable students to apply their growing phonetic knowledge while engaging with exciting and beautiful art. The first half of Level K contains Wordless Picture Books, which boost students' knowledge of story structure and vocabulary, and Sound Search Books, which grow students' letter-sound awareness. The second half of Level K contain Duet Books for children to read along with an adult while building their decoding and word recognition skills. Knowledge building occurs within books, across sets, and throughout modules, helping students develop a deep understanding of the module topic.
