Watch to learn from author Wiley Blevins how From Phonics to Reading is a fresh approach to phonics instruction including the foundational reading skills necessary for early readers.
I am absolutely a fan of your From Phonics to Reading program. It's reassuring to know the amount of research that went into developing this series. The lessons are very detailed with multiple ways to teach and reinforce. I enjoy using the decodable books to strengthen decoding skills in context. The cumulative assessment per lesson for accuracy and fluency is very helpful. It's awesome how previous lessons are continually being assessed as new lessons are taught. I will be using this data to prepare for my student's IEP meetings for those who have short and long vowel sounds as benchmarks.
We currently use Sadlier online component for Phonics, and we love the engagement and easy use of the tools for our students.
"If you don't already have a good phonics curriculum, I highly recommend From Phonics to Reading. It's cheap, effective, and easy to implement."
“I’m blown away by what I’m seeing in kindergarten classrooms.”
"The response to our new phonics program has been overwhelmingly positive! We love the structure and clear activities with a scope and sequence that we can understand. I like having texts written by an expert such as Wiley Blevins to go to for answers."
"I put the interactive activities on our Google Classroom Workboard. Students use these to listen to and do work right online. This is most helpful in the blending lines assignment. Students can listen while they practice."
"Our students find the lessons engaging and because the phonics skills are used in various ways, the learning 'sticks.' We finally have an engaging phonics program that is sequenced and systematic for our K-3 students."
"We are experiencing positive student outcomes using the From Phonics to Reading program in grades K–2. Teachers appreciate the clarity of the scope and sequence and the components of the materials. The program is a good fit for our students."
"If Phonics is Cinderella, From Phonics to Reading is the glass slipper! Teachers no longer must spend hours trying to distinguish between elements of their phonics program that are impactful versus pitfalls that cause failure."
We love using From Phonics to Reading! It is so well planned and so easy to follow. It's so nice to have everything included.
I used the Kindergarten level for the first time this past school year. I feel that it was very effective in helping the students to make the jump from prereaders to beginning readers.
I have used the Sadlier Phonics for the last three years for Kindergarten and First Grade. I love the Science of Reading and the work of Wiley Blevins. The program has elements of a strong phonics instruction. The decodable material makes learning to read easier for all students. Each grade level builds on the year before. I have found my students to end the year on grade level for reading moving to the next grade. I believe the science of reading works for most if not all students.
