- ABCs focuses on the alphabetic principle, a foundational concept and the first step in acquiring the letter – sound relationship.
- Learn to Read focuses on vowel sounds and the sound-spelling relationship. These concepts are reinforced through online books and games.
- In It's Fun to Read, students build vocabulary and comprehension skills by reading books and other material.
- In the final I'm Reading section, students will encounter frequently used words in online books. The books provide a model for fluent reading, proper intonation, expression, inflection and rate
Research in the area of early reading has focused on the “Five Big Ideas,” which include: phonemic awareness, the alphabetic principle, accuracy and fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
