Welcome To Our Website!

Everyone can learn the skills it takes to read.  The key is to purposefully embed the sounds, letter combinations and skills in a sequential way into story, visuals, and actions.

We remember what we think about most.  We think about things that interest us. Engaging emotion and interest through story makes these skills something for students to think about well after the lesson is over.  Using motions to engage motor memory as well as visuals to help organize and categorize skills help students be active in engaging their memory. 

For the skills needed we have provided direct instruction of skills through teaching videos, stories, games, little books, word, phrase and sentence lists, fluency pyramids and more! 

What your learner needs to already know to be ready for this site:

Learners are ready for step 1 when they:

  1. Know most of their letter sounds. (see below for video practice)
  2. Can identify and separate the first sound in words and are beginning to identify the last and middle sound in words with 2 or 3 sounds.
    • The first sound in “bat” is /b/
    • The last sound in “bat” is /t/
    • The middle sound in :”bat” is /a/
  3. Can blend two or three sounds to make a word.
    • /m/ … /o/ … /p/ says “mop”

Go to Letter Sounds for help with number 1
Go to Playing with Sounds for help with numbers 2 and 3.
