Intensify Phonics Instruction and Reduce Student Intervention Needs
95 Phonics Core Program® for Grades K-5

95 Percent Group Phonics Core ProgramHaving experienced what explicit, systematic, and sequential phonics instruction looks like with our suite of intervention products, our clients asked us to consider developing a Tier 1 phonics strand that’s grounded in the Science of Reading and the Principles of Structured Literacy.

The 95 Phonics Core Program® (PCP) is taught whole-class in just 30 minutes a day, as part of a 30-week comprehensive reading and language arts curriculum. A hallmark of PCP is that it provides  instruction in core phonics components, with minimum teacher prep, including word-sorting, sound-spelling mapping with and without manipulatives, word chains, and transfer to text.

The engaging Grade Level kits include fully-scripted Teacher's Editions, Student Workbooks, manipulatives, digital presentations, and assessments

As you start looking for ways to strengthen phonics instruction, in your required ELA curriculum, to close skill gaps for all students, we invite you to learn more.

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. 

In this video presentation, Dr. Susan Hall, retired CEO, and Co-Founder 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.
