SpellRead helps students build skills consistently and logically. Sounds are introduced from the easiest to the most difficult. Classroom reading materials are specifically selected from a sequential list of age-appropriate, language-based books.


  1.     Experts recommend more opportunities for immediate positive feedback and error correction. SpellRead teachers are trained to provide positive error correction during all activities. Scaffolding is consistently used to guide students to correct responses.


  1.     Experts recommend more skillful orchestration and integration of elements.

SpellRead students move seamlessly between activities. Class format, structure, and instructional language is consistent. Teachers are trained to transition quickly between activities so student attention is maintained.
