Stretch & Catch
OUR READING PROGRAM
The Stretch & Catch® is a results driven reading center with
a proprietary method of teaching reading to all students at all reading
levels. Stretch & Catch® has a proven track record of helping children
who are gifted, children with learning disabilities and every level
in-between. Before starting, each child is given an initial assessment
that will determine his/her current reading level, therefore creating
a literacy plan for each child.
On average, our students move up 1 entire reading level every 5 sessions.
Stretch & Catch® Reading Center specializes in teaching reading at
each child's instructional level from preschool-middle school,
including children with dyslexia & learning disabilities.

to teach each child how to read and spell at his/her instructional level.

READING LEVEL DEVELOPMENT

Q-T: 3rd Grade
U-W: 4th Grade
X-Z: 5th Grade
Z1: 6th Grade
Z2: 7th Grade
LETTER NAME (Kindergarten-1st Grade)
Students learn about beginning sounds, blends (bl, sl, etc.), word families and short vowel sounds. This is the stage in which students are
usually taught to read.
Within Word (1st Grade-3rd Grade)
Students spell most short vowel sounds correctly, and they learn about long vowel sounds and patterns in one-syllable words. In this stage, students can read and spell many words correctly because of their automatic knowledge of letter sounds and short vowel patterns.
Syllable Juncture (3rd Grade-5th Grade)
Students learn about the conventions of joining syllables in words with two or more syllables. Students are expected to spell many multi-syllable words.
