“We have experienced great success with 95 Percent Core Phonics resources. Through explicit and systematic phonics instruction, our students are gaining a deep understanding of the alphabetic principle. Students apply their learning in decoding, encoding, including written dictation, and showcase their learning by responding to comprehension passages. The data shows that our students are building a solid foundation as young readers and spellers.”

Grade 4 and Grade 5

"I love that you will be expanding your program to 4th and 5th Graders. The data speaks for itself!"

Title 1 Teacher, PA

The 95 Phonics Core Program for Grade 4 and Grade 5 includes authentic text based on engaging science, social studies, and pop culture topics to teach word attack strategies. The program uses explicitly designed word study routines to analyze words using multisyllabic patterns, and morphological structures to enhance students’ curiosity for words while building accuracy and fluency when reading grade-level text.

  • Daily Warm-Ups with Foundational Skills Review
  • Multisyllable Word Work, including explicit instruction on the 6 syllable types, simple and complex syllable division rules, and decoding/encoding multisyllable words in authentic informational and literary text
  • Morphology Instruction for building word knowledge and meaning through the morphological structure of words
  • Reading using modeled think-aloud strategies during the close reading process to improve independent reading skills at grade level
  • Response to Reading, allowing students to demonstrate comprehension skills through oral and written response

Students apply the same word attack strategies and routines in Grades 4 and 5 to build automaticity, but the morphology lessons and text complexity differ to meet specific grade level requirements.

Grade 4

  • Morphology: Latin roots with affixes to build word knowledge and meaning through word structures
  • Authentic text Lexile level range 800L-1000L

Grade 5

  • Morphology: Latin roots and Greek combining forms to build word knowledge and meaning through word structures
  • Authentic text with Lexile level range 900L-1200L

Independent Research Provides ESSA Support for 95 Phonics Core Program

Three independent research reports, confirming 95 Phonics Core Program’s effectiveness in improving student reading outcomes, are currently available online.

ESSA_Level_1.PNG

A year-long study of 95 Phonics Core Program conducted in Missouri demonstrated that students who used the program outperformed those in all grades K-2 who did not use the program. The results support ESSA Level 1 evidence for product effectiveness across these grade levels.
