Do you do more than just highlight words; do you feel that this is logically/thoughtfully organized?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the lessons involve more than just highlighting words (including a process called finger-mapping) although highlighting sound patterns are a major activity of the worksheets. Yes, we do feel it is logically/thoughtfully organized - in fact, very much so. Here is additional material on the process.

The Teaching Notes for 128 lessons takes the student through 55 Units that cover 193 distinct sound spelling patterns as well as past tense spellings, plural spellings, homophones, double consonants, and 32 suffixes. The basic idea is to read and spell all the sounds that are the basic building blocks of all words. Lessons are designed to be self-paced and are easily adapted for differentiated instruction. A sound is presented weekly, reviewed for 10-15 minutes on each of the next 3 days, then an assessment on the 5th day. One sound is taught at a time but all the ways to spell that sound are also taught at that same time. Target sounds are color-coded in each lesson. Daily practice involves a whiteboard and markers. Fingermapping (using the fingers to build a visual representation of the sounds in a word) is also part of the instruction. The accompanying CD provides printable Unit Activity Sheets, Teaching Notes, and Tracking Sheets.
