Teacher’s Guide

Explicit, systematic, multi-modal instruction in daily 20-30 minute lessons

3-Part Lesson Structure:
Warm-Up: Students reread the previously read decodable text, review sound-spelling and high-frequency words, or engage in phonological awareness training.

Multi-Modal Mini-Lesson: e.g., blending, word building, dictation, and vocabulary and content knowledge development through the Read-Aloud Cards.

Application to Reading and Writing: Students read a new decodable text and write about it.
