• Wilson Fundations Program


    The Bayonne Board of Education has adopted the Wilson Fundations Program which will be implemented district-wide with students in Kindergarten through Grade 2.  The Wilson Fundations curriculum emphasizes a systematic approach to teaching foundational reading skills focusing on phonemic awareness, phonics/word study, high frequency word study (trick words), vocabulary, spelling, fluency, comprehension and spelling.  In addition there is a handwriting component.


    Fundations incorporates a scaffolded, multisensory approach that teaches skills sequentially and cumulatively.  Instruction will be 30 minutes daily in all K-3 classrooms.  Students will use manipulatives that include dry erase tablets, letter tiles and letter boards as they learn letter-sound correlation and are taught to segment and blend phonemes.
