Our story based approach is designed to add life to spelling lessons and easily supports and complements methodologies such as Orton Gillingham, Science of Reading, Jolly Phonics, Montessori, Home School, or any favourite teaching program.

Our stories provide a link between decodable readers and storybooks. They include a variety of words ranging from simple to complex, with the focus sound letters printed in green to assist with decoding.
