Using Amplify Reading with CKLA
Amplify's Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) is a core curriculum for grades K-5 that supports teachers in delivering systematic and explicit instruction in the skills students need to become proficient readers. The deep engagement and individualized practice that students get when they play Amplify Reading helps to reinforce and solidify the concepts and skills they learn in core instruction.
This downloadable implementation guide details the many different ways that you can integrate CKLA and Amplify Reading to give your students the most and best opportunities to boost their reading skills.
Vocabulary practice in Amplify CKLA and Amplify Reading
If you use Amplify CKLA and Amplify Reading together, you’ll notice that both programs include access to the Amplify Vocabulary App, which offers students additional practice in Tier 2 vocabulary words drawn from Amplify CKLA units.
You can use either program to access the Vocab App, but we recommend having your students do so as part of their Amplify Reading experience, as vocabulary practice is embedded in the Amplify Reading quest system and adaptive algorithm.
