Learn The Words You Need
The Toolbox Series for Literacy consists of two levels containing 120 reading lessons. These lessons present the 1,000 most common words in the English language. This constitutes almost 90% of all of the words that we read on a daily basis. Providing such a word base allows a student to quickly become literate.
A Step-By-Step Recipe For Success
- No sound or sound combination is ever presented in a word until that sound has been learned
- No word can be introduced into a story until it has been taught
The student is also taught specific strategies for both phonetically regular and irregular words. The student can always use the method to decode new words and never has to resort to guessing.
