Please HELP!

Which one do you think is the best program? My school is setting aside money to purchase a program for K-2.

Thanks!

TC phonics

I am piloting TC phonics, and I like it a lot. It ties in with the writing and reading units of study, which we also use. It’s engaging, taught whole group, with a small group component for those who need it.

Our district is using Horizons for k-3. It has its pros and cons.

We use Wilson's FUNdations and Lexia. I think both are solid and worth the $$.

We had Fundations and got rid of it because it "moved too slowly." Well, IMO a lot of our kids needed to move that slowly in order to really learn it! I personally miss it.

I use Fundations. Second year of the program. My kids are in second grade and even though they drill sounds like crazy in first and I did at the beginning of the year, many still don't know the difference between short and long vowels. Too many components. I am tired of opening magnet boards and find missing letters. And I numbered every single piece when we got them.

Our district uses Reading Horizons K-2. We started out using it K-1. Then phased in Grade 2. It is an effective program.

In kindergarten, we also created a lot of our own activities/materials that followed RH format so what we worked on in phonics could be reinforced during Daily 5.

Thank you all! Hearing about Phonics...

Programs that didn’t know about.

Saxon Phonics was the only one I was semi familiar with years ago.

We are looking “exclusively” for a Phonics program (books, cards, and DIGITAL) since we have a new reading series (not impressed with their Phonics portion of the series).

Thanks for ALL the feedback!!!

Logic of English

Our school uses Logic of English. It is a phonics program based on an Orton-Gillingham approach. It focuses on teaching all of the phonograms using chants and fun hand signals, rules governing pronunciation and spelling, word roots and meanings of prefixes and suffixes. It also includes spelling and grammar. It is created to go through all of elementary. It is a very complete program and the author has created videos to support teachers as they learn the approach.
