Level 1 Systematic Phonics and Connected Text
Streamlined Level 1 promotes advanced phonemic awareness while developing phonetic concepts for consonants, consonant blends and digraphs, short and long vowel sounds, common vowel teams, inflectional suffixes, and high-frequency prefixes. High-frequency irregular words, vocabulary, and spelling conventions are also taught.
The user-friendly manual has a systematic sequence of explicit lessons, divided into units. Each unit also has digital files for assessments and for extra learning activates. The companion book, The CR Success Concept Book, includes a visual poster, a clear story, a song or chant, word examples, and often a gesture to teach each concept. This book is also used in the Level 2 program.
The decodable book series, Tales of Friends, is used in connection with the phonics lessons. The accompanying guide supplies lessons in vocabulary building, fluency, and writing.
