Students move their racecars along the 36-step Raceway that leads them to becoming fluent readers. This complete program uses carefully sequenced, systematic, explicit phonics instruction to take non-readers to independent readers. Sing, Spell, Read & Write supports the essential components of reading instruction including: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency, and Comprehension. Spelling and handwriting are also taught.
It is effective because it engages students in singing phonics songs and playing games to reinforce the skills that stimulates the senses and appeals to all learning styles. Its approach requires total participation on the part of the learner and is strongly supported by current research.
The Level 1 program has been working across the country and around the world for over 35 years. Colorful, interactive charts, CD with phonics songs, and games provide the repetition that allows students to master the skills quickly and easily. The complete Teacher's Manual is easy to follow and includes activities for English-Language learners.
