"I was tasked with teaching reading to 5th and 6th graders who were reading at the 1st grade level. We made some major progress with this in our arsenal! Rating: 4.0"

"I love the assessments. The students were much more willing to try when they understood that they would work on skills they as individuals were missing. The worksheets are detailed enough to really cover the material without overwhelming the students. The program is structured so that I can easily work with a small group or individual as needed to fill instructional gaps."
Here's what this toolkit offers:
*Five whole-class phonemic awareness, one alphabetic assessment, and two phonics diagnostic assessments with audio files and a recording matrix
. Easy and quick to administer, grade, and record. Each of the tests has been field tested and the results are reliable and prescriptive.
*Extensive alphabetic and phonemic awareness activities
that perfectly correspond with the diagnostic assessments. Practice the New Alphabet Song
(Mp3 file) and fill in the gaps to ensure a solid foundation for learning the phonetic code. Activities have been designed to appeal to kids of all ages and build on their oral language skills.
*Small group phonics workshop activities and worksheets
that exactly correspond with the vowel sounds and consonant blends phonics assessments. Each of the seven phonics workshops includes four lessons (guided instruction and independent practice) and a short formative assessment to ensure mastery of each phonics component. Of course, answers are provided.
