RAHWAY — Thanks to the Rahway Foundation For Excellence In Education, the first grade students at Franklin Elementary School in Rahway received a grant to purchase Phonics Phones. The students use these phones during reading to help them hear the words as they read aloud. Using the phones also helps them build their confidence in reading. In their free time, the students continue to select a book from the library and use the phones to enhance their reading skills. (Photos courtesy of Franklin School)
