Are you familiar with SWI?

SWI stands for Structured Word Inquiry and a lot of tutors who work with dyslexic students are seeing results. Maybe the students have given up because sounds and letters are hard to remember when...

There are helpful materials available, but ..

This is not a scope and sequenced kind of thing. You learn how to think scientifically about words, and then you teach your students to do the same. I usually have students investigate words they...

Structured Word Inquiry anyone?

It's pairing up scientific thinking with word inquiry. It's looking at words as a scientist would. It's teaching your students that all words have structure, and it's that structure (bases and...

We love to show

The Buttercream Gang

It's a 1992 movie, so most have not seen it. The movie is engaging and the message is great. It's about friendship and what it means to be a true friend.
