What educators are saying

I use this curriculum within my classroom. My school district does not provide me with any phonics curriculum so I had to supplement with this resource! Thank yOu!!!
Bought this to go along with part 1. Very pleased with this wordfamily curriculum. It has everything you need to teach wordfamilies and the students love the activities. Thank you!


KinderWordFamilies® Part 2 Curriculum?

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

KinderWordFamilies® Part 2 was created by a teacher for teachers! This supplemental phonics curriculum is made up of 8 weeks or 40 instructional days. KinderWordFamilies® is a researched based explicit supplemental curriculum program. The teacher has 40 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.

How can I use this program?

Teachers see the benefits of teacher explicit word families and can be used as part of your guided reading lesson, RTI lesson, intervention lesson, whole-group phonics, or used for a para or aide to assist in the learning process!

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!
