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 early 1st grade, it is often taught as a whole class supplement; thus the group sizes are large. When it is taught as an intervention later in 1st grade or in 2nd grade and beyond, it is typically taught in smaller groups to students who are falling behind.

The scope and sequence explicitly covers the foundational skills needed to help students who struggle with basic skills in reading in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. Students will learn how to master reading words with complex consonant constructions in Closed Syllables, Open Syllables, Vowel-Consonant-e Syllables, Vowel Team Syllables, and inflectional endings. Students also learn how to apply functional strategies to successfully read multisyllabic words with ease. Blast targets the skills needed to build confidence with decoding skills in order to become accurate and 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.
