- Research-based: Respected reading specialist and well-known literacy consultant, Dr. Jeanne Chall, coauthored this series with the extensive research she conducted at Harvard University.
- Direct instruction that works: This research-based, classroom-proven approach takes students step-by-step through advancing levels of phonemic awareness and sound-letter knowledge. The skill-sequence is easy for students to follow, leading to mastery.
- Eye-catching photos and graphics help student comprehension: Chall-Popp Phonics engages students and helps them draw more meaning from text.
- Simple, easy-to-use unit structure: Content is streamlined to make it easier for you to manage instruction.
- Support for learning at home: Each student book includes a fun take-home booklet for each unit. Plus, you’ll find letters that let parents take an active role in their child’s learning. Parent letters are also provided in Spanish.
- Meaningful assessments for individualized instruction: Every unit includes an assessment that helps you identify students who need additional intervention.
- Text in multiple genres: Students move from basic phonemic recognition to decoding and comprehension of a delightful mix of poems, stories, and nonfiction articles.
- Teacher-tested classroom strategies: Teacher’s editions include: teaching and intervention strategies, related reading suggestions, charts, games, and other resources—right where you can get to them, fast! The teacher’s editions for Levels A and B also include alphabet cards that feature the characters introduced in the student book.
Teacher’s editions recommend specific Early Phonics Readers (short vowels) and Phonics Readers (long vowels and consonant blends and digraphs) to support many lessons. These books provide targeted phonics practice to help transition students from instruction to independent reading.
