Student Group Size, Scope and Sequence, and Lesson Structure

Blast Foundations lessons can be taught in various group sizes, depending on your situation. When used in 1st grade, it's often taught as a whole-class supplement thus the group sizes are large. When used as an intervention in 2nd grade, it's typically taught in smaller groups.

The Blast Foundations scope and sequence is systematic and cumulative. All students start with Lesson 1 and complete all instructions.

The scope and sequence covers explicit instruction in the foundational skills needed to help students who struggle with basic skills in reading.  They will learn how to master words with cvc, digraphs, two-sound blends, trigraphs, and the vowel-consonant-e spelling.  Students also learn how to apply functional strategies to successfully read multi-syllabic words with ease.  Blast targets the skills needed to build confidence with decoding skills in order to become accurate fluent readers.

Blast has 25 units which are comprised of 5 lessons per week.  Each lesson keeps students actively engaged in the learning process with multisensory teaching designed to be completed in 15-20 minute sessions.  In one week, students are immersed in 75-100 minutes of explicit instruction.
