What educators are saying

My students really enjoy the interactive games. Such a great way to review the word families we've worked on! The other resources are great as well. Highly recommend!
These have been amazing for my students. We have used these so much to kickstart our peers who still need support with ending sounds!


This is PART 2 of FirstieWordFamilies... View Part 1 HERE! **

What is FirstieWordFamilies Part 2 Curriculum?

FirstieWordFamilies Part 2 was created by a teacher for teachers! This supplemental phonics curriculum is made up of 20 weeks or 100 instructional days. FirstieWordFamilies is a researched based explicit supplemental curriculum program. The teacher has 100 directed teacher lesson plans to follow and all needed material for the lesson to be a success is included. Furthermore, FirstieWordFamilies is systematic curriculum program.

I love this program but I teacher kindergarten, sped, etc?

I have also included an UNBRANDED version to the curriculum and all components! This means that no worksheets will say "firstie".

I already own several of your other programs. How is this different? Do I really need this?

That last question is ultimately your decision. However, I can do my part in best explaining how this program can be used and how it differs from my other programs! This program explicitly teaches word families! None of my other programs do this as they progress through the vowels at a much faster pace! Furthermore, this program offers great benefits and excitement with the interactive components! Those can be used alongside any curriculum program!
