Instructional Ideas
  • Use in a literacy center for individual practice
  • Have struggling readers work in a small group with an aide
  • Ideal for a speech language pathologist when working with a client
Classroom Considerations
  • The lessons are designed for adult learners, but you could use them with younger pupils as well when introducing different vowel and consonant patterns
  • Lessons are scripted; you can use them word for word, or select the parts that are more relevant to your curriculum
  • Exercises referenced an activity book (attached), but the lessons can stand alone as well
  • Covers a lot of reading fundamentals
  • Comes with teacher instruction guides and reference materials
  • None
