"So Simple" uses a unique approach to teach those sight words that hinder fluency and create a high affective filter when a new reader or print-deprived child encounters them. Unlike some "songs" for sight words, this approach involves using the natural rhythm of the spelling of each word, and combining each with its unique tune and hand motions for the spelling of the word. No word uses more than 16 beats for its "cheer," so children can efficiently retrieve the right-brained cues for the words they stumble upon in reading and writing.
All learning modalities are addressed through this method. The program calls in many right-brain and cross-brain learning strategies. The program is visual, auditory, and kinesthetic, and lends itself to whole-group instruction. (I personally instruct the program with 80+ students per day at one time!)
