When creating the Watson Works Phonics and Spelling Program, it was our goal to create a program that teaches phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, spelling, and fluency in a systematic, yet fun and engaging way to meet the needs of both students and teachers. So, we received input from a team of veteran early elementary teachers and created a research-based program that is aligned with the TEKS Resource System ELAR Phonics Scope & Sequence and supports the Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language. Our program contains daily 30-minute lesson plans, weekly assessments for progress monitoring, and cooperative learning activities to enhance instruction. This program also targets handwriting, high frequency word study, vocabulary, and other ELAR skills, and it is designed to be used as part of an existing balanced literacy program.

This is an awesome addition to Journeys! I was in need of phonics intervention. This will work great. I bought this packet to see if this would fit the needs of my RTI students. After looking through these units, I plan on purchasing for the whole year. Thank you for sharing your hard work.- Sue S.
