Designed for every child

Materials are designed to serve every child, including English learners, students developing targeted IEP skills, preK and kindergarten enrichment, and tutoring and after-school programs for all grade levels.

After implementing a structured literacy approach, I hear from teachers all the time that they didn’t believe their students could learn so well and so quickly. They tell me, for instance, that the things their Kindergarten children are doing are far and above what they’ve ever been able to do before. Teachers love seeing their students experience this joy of accomplishment in reading.
