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!
