Really Great Reading Lessons

 

In all our lessons, students learn to practice what good readers do naturally, which is pay attention to every word, read with a high rate of accuracy, and use strategies for attacking unfamiliar and multisyllable words. Our lessons, CountdownBlastHD WordBoost, and Blitzexplicitly teach phonemic awareness, phonics concepts and word attack skills. They also focus on reading accurately, which translates to better comprehension. The lessons are research based, multisensory, highly effective, and can be taught by a wide range of people, not just experienced literacy professionals.
