To help support the SFA Community during this time of unprecedented online learning, we are providing extensive resources to help teach SFA in a virtual environment. These materials are to be used solely within the Success for All community (schools and parents), and are not provided for general public use. You may copy and paste the links to these resources and share them with your parents electronically as needed. Don’t forget to check the SFA Online Resources site for other great supports.
In addition to the files below, many other GAT resources, posters, blackline masters, video’s etc. are posted on the SFA Online Resources site.

Reading Comprehension (RC) materials were a part of SFA’s original Reading Wings program. They are designed to teach specific reading comprehension skills following the Cycle of Effective Instruction and utilizing Cooperative Learning. While some reading comprehension skill expectations may have changed in complexity since they were first published, they are included here as an additional resource for your toolbox. They may be used as a team or individual activity as your virtual or onsite classroom allows.
