The Superkids Foundational Skills Kit provides explicit instruction and student practice for 30–40-minute daily lessons focused on building these foundational reading skills: phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency. Based on the proven-effective Superkids pedagogy, this curriculum for grades K–2 can supplement any core reading program, complement a balanced literacy framework, or be used as a stand-alone resource to support students with gaps in these skills.
The Superkids are a lively cast of characters whose adventures and activities will keep your students motivated and engaged in learning foundational skills. Instruction cleverly connects the Superkids to concepts such as letters and sounds. Decoding practice includes captivating, episodic stories about these 14 loveable characters.
In kindergarten, students are introduced to the 14 Superkids characters a unit at a time. The Superkids begin as mnemonic devices to learn new letter-sounds. With unique personalities, special talents, and diverse interests, they quickly become good friends your student will keep throughout first and second grades.
The Superkids Foundational Skills Kit provides systematic, explicit instruction and practice students need to be successful readers and writers. Print concepts, phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, handwriting, spelling, word analysis, and vocabulary are taught using the Skills Books.View Samples
