Easy-to-use scripted lessons allow teachers to feel supported while instructing students of any skill level! No prior preparation or training required!
Phonemic Awareness and Systematic Phonics knowledge are foundational to developing strong reading, spelling, and writing skills. Every unit provides instruction in these key concepts in order to build on prior knowledge and empower all students to understand and explain the spelling of English words!
These guides include 3 colored-coded levels of differentiated instruction to meet the wide-ranged needs of students. All three levels are controlled for phonograms and spelling rules that have been introduced. The words and concepts of each level build in complexity throughout Essentials, and each unit includes leveled spelling analysis, vocabulary, dictation, and grammar activities.
Scripted lessons to engage all students, assessments to track progress, and games that foster the joy of learning!
Essentials Pre-Lessons provide additional instruction in phonemic awareness and the sounds of the A-Z phonograms for students who need it to prepare for Unit 1 and Unit 2.
Parts 2-5 include a wealth of built-in review activities to extend instruction and provide additional practice.
Throughout the teacher's guide there are teacher tips that anticipate teachers' concerns and students' needs. These tips also recommend different ways that you can enhance your lessons.
To complete a unit, students will be asked to check their understanding with an assessment. These assessments help you and your students determine which skills need additional review and which skills they have mastered.
Written for students ages 8 to adult, Essentials units are easily adaptable to meet students' needs, ages, or attention spans. Corresponding numbering with the Online Courses makes it easy to extend instruction when students need more practice.
