What ages or grades does this cover?

Our Phonics for All™ resources are designed to be used in kindergarten through 2nd grade classrooms. However, the skills are alphabetic and phonics skills that can be used in all classrooms and homeschool with learners who are ready to begin learning the alphabet and basic phonics skills or working on phonics skill deficits.

Does this align with the Science of Reading?

All of our teacher creators are trained in the science of reading strategies and have taken those strategies and principles and paired them with their over 30 years of combined experience to develop this curriculum. These activities focus on phonics skills and strategies that are best practice for students learning to read.

What is the best way to print my curriculum components?

We recommend printing the cards on card stock and laminating for durability. You can print on regular copy paper and laminate but we find that they last longer with students constant use if they are printed on card stock.

Can I use these activities in my online classrooms as teaching material? (Outschool, Online ESL)

YES! We love online teachers and we authorize our resources to be used BY THE TEACHER during lessons. We don't allow them to be sent to parents to be used outside the online classroom.
