Google Slide Activities (Over 2,500 Google Slides)

  1. Phonemic and Morphological Awareness: Quick phonemic awareness drills for Tier 3 instruction and/or Greek and Latin morphology for Tier 2 instruction. Students master phoneme segmenting, blending, and manipulation and learn the high frequency prefixes, bases, and suffixes with memorable Anchor Words.
  2. Blending, Segmenting, and Spelling: Each sounds to print spelling and phonics lesson features continuous blending of 4-8 phonetically regular words and 2 Heart Words. Includes guided handwriting spelling practice. No writing on whiteboards. No turning your back to students to blend. Yes, you can record the screen and share the lesson via ZOOM, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams.
  3. Sounds and Spellings and Heart Words Practice: Independent practice with text box typing (or print copy) and drag and drop activities for the focus sound-spellings and Heart Words.
  4. Say It! Spell It! Read It! Word Chains: Students drag and drop, write, or use the letter cards to build new words with the sound-spellings introduced in each lesson. Students love to "switch 'em" from word to word in this review game.
  5. Sam and Friends Phonics Books: Decodable stories with teenage characters and plots for each of the 54 daily lessons with comprehension questions, margin annotations, and word fluency practice. Beautifully illustrated by noted comic artist, David Rickert. Google slide, tablet, Chromebook, phone, and print formats.

To supplement the language comprehension program (and create a 55 minutes-per-day reading intervention class), The Science of Reading Intervention Program: Assessment-based Instruction provides diagnostically-based instructional resources to differentiate and individualize instruction.

Even though students have completed the word recognition program, some students and new transfer students will need second-chance instruction with more intense tutoring and practice in easily-managed small groups and independent practice.

The program includes 13 comprehensive assessments and matching instructional resources to fill in yet-to-be-mastered gaps with small group differentiated and individualized instruction in these literacy skills:

  1. Phonemic Awareness
  2. Alphabetic Awareness
  3. Phonics
  4. Expository Reading Fluency (with timing sheets and YouTube modeled readings--the same as the reading comprehension animal articles--recorded at three different speeds)
  5. Heart Words and Phonics Games
  6. Spelling Patterns 
  7. Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics
  8. Syllabication and Morphology
  9. Executive Function Skills

Testimonials and Recommendations: Here's what teachers are saying about The Science of Reading Intervention Program:

"An extensive product suitable for students of all ages. Love that it is suitable testing and resources for older students with reading difficulties- there are too few suitable resources for this age group. Reading passages are appealing with attached ideas on how to best target each one." Felicia B.

"The Sam and Friends Phonics Books are amazing. I have been using them for two years now, my middle school kids love them, they can relate to the stories, and I have seen improved reading in all of them. They would often want to read additional books and be upset that we had to wait till the next day. My kids often said these are great to read and not about baby stuff. Several were like, 'He should make it a novel because it kind of is!'" Rose Marie Tulius Pagel

"I am an Instructional Coach and am responsible for running Response to Intervention groups, this is the perfect resource that I have been looking for! Thank you so much for creating it!" Jamie Kidwell

"The Sam and Friends Books (decodables) are just what my struggling middle school and high school readers need!" Joy Hutchings

"Your reading assessments made me "the hit" at our SHARE faculty meeting! Thank you." Jane Farris

"Excellent! Just what I needed for my ELLs!" Deneise McGowan

"I love the assessment parts. The students were much more willing to try when they understood that they would work on skills they as individuals were missing. The worksheets are detailed enough to really cover the material without overwhelming the students. I teach 9th and 10th graders that are in the juvenile correctional system so they have many educational gaps, but this is structured so that I can easily work with a small group or individual as needed to fill those gaps." Jules Stras 

"I just wanted to thank you for creating these explicit and extensive resources for students in need. Thank you! I am working with one class of ESL students and two classes of Read 180 students with behavior issues and have been struggling to find methods to address their specific areas of weakness. I am also teaching three senior level English classes and have found them to have serious deficits in many critical areas that may impact their success if they are attending college level courses in a year's time. I have been trying to find a way to help all of them in specific and measurable ways - and I found you!" Cathy Ford

"Very useful. I love the flexibility to target the individual needs of all my students. Thank you!" Rebecca

"This has been a great resource for my small group instruction!" Carrie Thornton

"The Science of Reading Intervention Program is a great resource to use with my struggling 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders." Cougar Creations

"This is a fantastic resource." Melissa Gartly

"Our middle school students love your fluency articles and practice. So far we are delighted with the program and are happy with the results!" Heather Lewis

"I used this with a student I was tutoring, made a great improvement in her fluency skills!" Kira Brower

"Used during our after school tutoring to boost DIBELS scores! Great product! Thanks!" Stephanie Pope

"The Diagnostic Academic Language Assessment (thank you for the Google forms!) placed my students right where they need to learn. The vocabulary worksheets cover every one of the comprehensive Anchor Standards for Language 4, 5, and 6. So well done!" Michael Moustafa
