We are offering a digital product that will teach students how to read with a minimum of effort. After just 5 lessons, the student is reading sentences. After 10 lessons, the student is reading stories!
Lessons are bundled in groups of 5.
NEW FLUENCY CHECKS come after every 5 lessons.
The Maloney Method uniquely incorporates four educational strategies into one all-encompassing system that works for everyone:
Behavioral objectives specify a plan for what you are going to teach and a strategy to implement that plan so that the student is guaranteed to learn. In short, they create a road map to take the student from A to B as quickly and efficiently as possible. These objectives are sequenced to provide the most efficient learning path. Each learning outcome adds another skill.
Importantly, behavioral objectives are directly measurable by the teacher, parent, or anyone who needs the information. For example, a behavioral objective might be: “The student can see and say 50 – 60 sounds and/or sound combinations in one minute without making more than 2 errors.” This statement is easily understood, easily measured and delivers numerical scores which are easily compared to previous scores to determine progress.
It’s important that the student is receptive to instruction. The most effective method to promote a student’s progress and reduce behavior problems is to provide consistent feedback, praise and rewards for diligent effort and for successful work. Our App provides:

Direct Instruction, a teaching method developed by Siegfried Engelmann and his colleagues at University of Oregon, has proven to be the most effective instructional method available for teaching basic and advanced skills in reading, writing, spelling, math and language development.
Simply put, Direct Instruction clearly demonstrates the concept and/or the application for the student, with no guesswork involved.
Once the instruction has been completed, we want to know whether or not we have taught successfully and the degree to which the student can apply the new information or strategy quickly and correctly.
The method of Precision Teaching was developed by Ogden Lindsley at Kansas University and entails conducting a quick measurement at the end of every lesson. This provides a simple and direct measure of improvement (or not) that can be captured in a minute or less, letting you know how well the teaching worked.
The outcome of these daily measures enables an effective response: practice options and remedial alternatives that will help to resolve the student’s roadblock.
Frequent and consistent methods of recording, analyzing and making decisions on student performance are crucial for progress. The Sacajewa Study, which covered thousands of students in several U.S. western states, showed startling results. Students doubled their scores in math and reading by simply doing a one-minute measurement of each task every day during the school year.
Mom’s most favorite outstanding feature was the teacher-student work review at the end of each section, which was quite thorough. There are progress charts as well. Grading couldn’t be simpler – just pop your scores in, and you’re good to go! – Karen Houston, Lead State Coordinator, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
Each lesson is a video playlist that introduces phonetic sounds, demonstrates blending sounds into words, and guides students through practice exercises.
