I developed this curriculum because our ESL students were struggling with reading and spelling, specifically the many different vowel sounds. After deciding to use a word family approach we began following a basic pattern for 30 minutes a day, 3-5 times a week. The resulting scores were out of this world for both reading and vocabulary!
