What is KinderWordFamilies™ Curriculum?

KinderWordFamilies® was created by a teacher for teachers! This supplemental phonics curriculum is made up of 20 weeks or 100 instructional days. KinderWordFamilies® 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, KinderWordFamilies® is systematic curriculum program. This simply means that the students follow the same routine each week.


Please note that you can change the order of the word families to fit your needs. There are also opportunities for your advanced readers to benefit from KinderWordFamilies® with an advanced reader available each week as well. Below is a quick description of how each day of the week is broken down.

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!
