What Our Families Say
I’m Angelica and I created this program when I started working 1:1 with students who struggled with reading. I found that many times students were being sent home with sight word lists that had no logical pattern and included words that could easily be decoded. Students weren’t able to blend simple words and when they didn’t know a word they would just guess!
The only way to fill the skills gaps was to relearn to read. Starting from scratch ensured that students had the foundational skills needed to grasp more complex concepts within the Viva Phonics program and beyond.
We know that the intellectual crippling of children is caused overwhelmingly by faulty instruction-not by faulty children.
Z. Engelmann, Theory of Instruction: Principals and Applications
In 2015, 64% of 4th grade students were not reading at grade level. And according to the most recent National Report Card, in 2017 average scores in 4th grade reading had not improved in any state and declined in 9 states since 2015. nationsreportcard.gov
The future of your child depends on reading well.
Imagine your reader in just a few weeks…
where will they be if their reading journey starts now?
While studying the Alphabetic Principle students build the 5 essential reading skills: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension.
Readers start by increasing their understanding of letter-sound
relationships. This is key to helping beginning readers recognize familiar words and decode new words. The ability to decode helps readers grasp new vocabulary and apply new terms correctly.
Readers build reading fluency through repetition, practice and drills. This new ability to read words quickly, accurately and with expression will improve a student’s comprehension skills, increasing his appetite for reading and devouring all things words.
Readers develop a rock-solid foundation in spelling through dictation exercises – an integral component to reading – by practicing the speech sounds verbally, and spelling those speech sounds accurately. A strong speller is a strong reader and writer!
We are so very grateful to have her in our son’s corner.
