PROGRAM

 

Flexible, comprehensive, proven
the only reading program you’ll need

 

Phonetic Reading with Silent Elephant “e” is the only curriculum needed to guide an ELL, a struggling, or a dyslexic nonreader to become a fluent, comprehending reader of any genre. Hearts will sing!

The phonetic reading program is composed of:

  • 14 spiral bound books
  • 44 classroom posters and a picture book
  • Over 100 instructional videos
  • Phonemic awareness and phonics assessments providing thorough directions for administration and ongoing evaluation of student performance—your assessments to guide your teaching

The program is laid out in multiple parts:

  • Part 1: Phonemic Awareness—the foundation of reading
    • Students manipulate phonemes by moving colored squares on game boards in 47 multi-sensory lessons.
    • The most often missing skill in nonreaders is the ability to connect sight to sounds. It is the most important first step for ALL learners but especially dyslexics.
       
  • Parts 2 – 14: Phonics rules are taught in a precisely organized, systematic, progressive sequence
    • Abstract phonics rules become clearly conceptual and comprehensible in lessons using colorful, visual, kinesthetic, concrete methods utilizing the five senses and whole body.
    • ALL children, especially dyslexics, need this personal whole body interaction with phonics rules to understand the relationship of a phonics rule to its application.

The step-by-step “cookbook” style directions are easily followed.

  • Three levels of complexity provide differentiation to meet the needs of all children.
  • Every lesson has Partner Practice pages and an At Home Practice page providing essential home-school communication.

It’s hard to describe how much this program has helped our daughter with her reading. In the relatively short time she has been working with this program we have gone from taking hours of fighting and struggling to read books below her grade level to a girl who is comfortably reading books at or near her grade level and actually starting to ask to read to her younger brother. We could not be happier with the results so far and excited to see how much further this will go.
