What is PrimaryBlendsandDigraphs Curriculum?
PrimaryBlendsandDigraphs was created by a teacher for teachers! This supplemental phonics curriculum is made up of 20 weeks or 100 instructional days. PrimaryBlendsandDigraphs 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, PrimaryBlendsandDigraphs is systematic curriculum program.

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 JUST digraphs and blends! My other programs (KinderPhonics and FirstiePhonics do cover blends and digraphs but not in the exact format of my KinderWordFamilies! Furthermore, this program offers great benefits and excitement with the interactive components! Those can be used alongside any curriculum program!
