The seventh version of this literacy platform includes a wide array of new features providing teachers with the resources to give K–3 students a solid foundation for reading and spelling. Using relatable characters to guide reinforcement and corrective feedback, the research-based platform incorporates multisensory, Orton-Gillingham principles and a unique marking system. It easily adapts to meet the needs of all students through whole-class, small group, or one-on-one instruction, or in combination as part of a blended learning environment. The flexibility of the software allows for targeted instruction and intervention with English language learners and struggling readers in a variety of settings such as afterschool and summer programs, and independent learning centers. The newest iteration includes a tool to guide the pace of whole-class and small-group instruction, assessments to determine reading levels for each student, and an iPad app. The new Check-Up assessments can be used to quickly determine each student’s level of mastery immediately after each skill lesson has been taught. To track long-term progress, their Reading Assessment powered by the Lexile® Framework for Reading gives teachers a Lexile measure for each student. Teachers can use results from assessments to select appropriately leveled books for each student. The new iPad app gives students easy access before, during, or after school via an Internet connection. Learn more.
