abcs for literacy

ABC’s for Literacy wants to help build each child a strong, “literacy house” that withstands the huffs and puffs of life…beginning with a solid foundation. That is why we also offer literacy lesson memberships and professional development training to educators: school and daycare educators.

Our literacy strategies are learned from top national educators and educational researchers, and our lessons really supports the classroom teacher with manipulatives, games, songs, videos, and printable hands-on activities right on hand or just a click away. Our program is research-based, child-tested, and standards-aligned.

ABC’s for Literacy helps the stakeholders in a child’s education understand the goals & easily work together for lasting results for the child. Learning is a journey to be savored, not a race to win.

Educators come away from an ABC's for Literacy course with knowledge and materials to use in the classroom and to provide parents. Due to the easy-to-follow and highly effective building block design of our reading and writing program, 92 percent or more of regular classroom students will be on grade-level or higher by the end of two academic years- testing with prove results. As we teach concepts of phonics, phonemic awareness, and whole-language, our program compliments other reading curriculum in place. And ABC's for Literacy makes it easy for the teacher to provide the parents with individualized work for the child to practice during the school year or summer keeping the child growing and helping him or her retain their knowledge. ABC's for Literacy helps the teacher and parent work as a team for the success of the child.
