Address Phonics Gaps at the Beginning of the School Year
95 Phonics Booster Bundle™: Tune-Up Grades 1 - 3  

NOW shipping for immediate delivery. 

95 Phonics Booster Bundle Tune-UpOur recently released 95 Phonics Booster Bundle™: Tune-Up was developed to provide teachers with an explicit phonics program to quickly address unfinished learning as school resumes for the 2021-22 school year.

Tune-Up provides teachers with scripted phonics and word study lessons to immediately catch up students who have experienced gaps during the prior school year. We encourage educators to use this 25-day structured literacy based program at the beginning of the school year to cover critical skills right away - even before all BOY assessments are completed.

Study shows Summer School Edition 2021 and Tune-Up Contents Significantly Improved Student Outcomes

A recently published independent study conducted to evaluate the impact of the 95 Phonics Booster Bundle™: Summer School Edition (SSE) on phonics growth using the SSE assessment measures showed that all grade levels demonstrated significant gains. In fact, the main takeaway from this study was that:

"95 Phonics Booster Bundle: Summer School Edition effectively increases students' phonics skills in a four-week summer program, helping close phonics gaps before the start of school."

Targeting Grades 1 - 3, the Tune-Up program was created by reintroducing 100% of the content in our 95 Phonics Booster Bundle: Summer School Edition 2021. Tune-Up is designed to quickly address phonics deficits and improve student outcomes.

Tune-Up Includes Full-Color Presentation Files

The teacher's package includes a Presentation Files component to improve instructional pacing and student engagement. Watch the Presentation File Demo to see how this animated digital feature can be used in class or with remote leaning.

Advancing Evidence-Based Instructional Practices to Improve Reading Achievement

In general, educators agree as to what skilled word reading is, and what it looks like.  The disagreement lies in HOW to help their students become proficient readers. This well-publicized reading debate centers around the best way to teach students to read.

susan-hall_sIn this video presentation, Dr. Susan Hall examines the current views about word reading, takes a closer look at how skilled readers read, and explores evidence-based science of reading practices that are connected to brain research. What is the science behind reading? And, how can we fix the 'profound disconnection between the science of reading and educational practice'*?

Watch to learn more about the Science of Reading and how this knowledge can positively impact your instructional practices in the new school year.  Download the session handouts and share this presentation with your colleagues to continue this important discussion and learning experience.

Be sure to check out our Foundational Literacy Course: Understanding the Science of Reading - a perfect starting point for all educators to have a shared understanding of this critical topic.

Phoneme Screener teacher with student

Have your students mastered Phoneme Substitution?

David Kilpatrick (2015)* says that phonemic manipulation skills continue to develop through fourth grade and that most curricula and assessments stop monitoring phonemic awareness in first grade.  

Advanced phonemic awareness skills are essential for learning unfamiliar words which is critical for reading success. 95 Percent Group provides a complimentary Phoneme Substitution Screener designed to determine if students in grades 1-4 have mastered phoneme substitution. 

Download our Phoneme Substitution Screener to find out if ALL of your students have mastered Phoneme Substitution.

10 Success Factors for Literacy Intervention by Dr. Susan Hall

10 Success Factors for Literacy Intervention

In some schools, MTSS/RTI is losing steam because other initiatives are consuming educators’ attention. Diverting focus away from MTSS is a mistake. A systemic approach to differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all students should be non-negotiable. 

Join author and reading intervention expert, Dr. Susan Hall as she addresses these questions and explores each of these 10 initiatives. Download this complimentary 8-page booklet to preview the 10 Success Factors and watch our on-demand 10 Success Factors webinar series.

10 Success Factors can also be used as a comprehensive  Book Study for a district, school, or grade-level team. The Book Study Bundle includes a Facilitator's Guide to promote meaningful conversations among participating staff and Reader's Guides to further engage participants. Book study participants use their notes and discussions to create or improve a collaborative site-based MTSS Action Plan that can be strategically implemented on their campus.
