We use the Structured Literacy approach recommended by the International Dyslexia Association. Structured Literacy is explicit, systematic teaching that focuses on phonological awareness, word recognition, phonics and decoding, spelling, and syntax at the sentence and paragraph levels.

 Structure Literacy is universally recommended as the best way to teach literacy and uses explicit instruction that integrates listening, speaking, reading,and writing.

Calling All Super Readers!

Our Super Readers course offers online, play-based early reading courses for SK and Grade 1 kids (ages 5-7). Our courses incorporate active learning techniques with games, mindfulness practice, physical activities, crafts, and songs to engage little learners. 

Each course is structured around a phonics-centred, Structured Literacy approach that uses interactive play to teach early readers phonological awareness (the ability to recognize and apply sounds in spoken language), word recognition, spelling, pronunciation, and sentence formation. Super Readers online courses are an engaging, interactive, and most importantly, fun way to boost kids’ early literacy skills!

Our Super Readers course has been designed using current research on the acquisition of early reading skills and will guide your child to:

  • Become proficient in letter-sound correspondence

  • Expand phonological awareness

  • Master the 44 phonemes in English

  • Learn grade-level-appropriate sight words (all 92)

  • Read consonant vowel consonant (CVC) words 

  • Begin to decode more complex words

  • Write name using upper & lower case letters

  • Start composing sentence composition & longer writing

  • Use acquired knowledge to read at-level books

We also use the Dolch Word List to guide our site word recommendations. The list contains frequently seen words that can not be sounded out so children would need to learn them by site.

Site Words

The Dolch Word list is used in many educational activities to help with reading foundations. These site words are also used with English as a Second Language (ESL) students and language immersion students (e.g. French immersion).
