Sequence

120 lessons start with introducing letters and letter sounds. Then students read and write words like “cat” and “fib.” Students learn more sophisticated phonics, affixes, and spellings, in a step-by-step way.  By the end, they are reading and writing words like “communication” and “chrysanthemum.”
