Step 1: Phonemic Awareness Fun

The English language is a language made up of sounds with letters representing those sounds. We make sure your child is ready to take their first steps towards becoming a confident reader by hearing and repeating the sounds. Through engaging activities like playful sound and spoken word games, segmenting, blending, and sound exploration, you'll foster a love for language and learning.

So the beginning stage of reading is to help children hear the sounds of language by playing with words and their sounds - at the beginning of single syllable words, at the end of those words, and the middle sound.

Our instruction focuses on teaching students how to blend individual sounds together to form words (e.g., /k/-/a/-/t/ spells "cat") and how to segment words into their individual sounds, the first step to building confidence in reading and spelling. And yet, we do not name the letters nor memorize words! All “spelling” at first is by sound.
Step 2: Letter-Sound Correspondence

With only 44 sounds and 26 alphabet letters in the English language, understanding the sounds of letters - the "how" and "why" behind words - is the key to unlocking a child's full reading potential. 

We make learning the relationship between letters and their corresponding sounds (phonemes) a breeze. Starting with the most basic letter-sound relationships - vowels and consonants - we gradually progress to more complex ones, ensuring your child masters phonics step by step.

Once the student understands the alphabet sounds with letter association, then we begin putting letters together into nonsense syllables as either open syllables or closed syllables. You will teach the accompanying rules to go with letters and beginning syllable reading. Once your child finishes reading all twelve Syllable Charts, he or she will be ready for the next step - Step 3 - reading words!!

Say goodbye to word memorization and hello to joyful learning!


Tailor this program to your child's unique needs. Your child will progress at her or his own pace, and with your guidance as their “sound” and reading tutor, they'll steadily build a robust foundation for lifelong skilled reading.

Teaching your child to read is not just about words—it's about the special moments you share. The READING program strengthens the bond between you and your child as you embark on this educational journey together.

Witness your child's excitement as he or she achieves reading milestones. From learning letters and all their sounds, then decoding syllables and then words, to learning the rules that will guide them to independent reading and spelling, you'll celebrate every step of their progress.

By teaching your child to read, you're equipping him or her with a skill set that will last a lifetime. This program will help build their confidence and help them gain independence to eventually explore the world through quality reading.
Besides teaching how to read, we suggest that you read quality books to your child and have fun talking about the chapters and acting them out. In this way,  you are helping your child's brain develop fully and grow in oral vocabulary!
