Fundations Curriculum


Fundations makes learning to read and spell fun while laying the groundwork for life-long literacy. Students receive a systematic program in critical foundational skills, emphasizing
  • Phonemic awareness                              * vocabulary

  • Phonics/word study                                          * Handwriting

  • High frequency Word Study (sight words)    * Spelling

  • Reading fluency

Bonus Letters!



*When a one syllable word ends in an "f,l,s,or z" it gets a bonus letter.*


This rule is only for spelling.  The bonus letter is not tapped out because it is not used for reading.


This is why words like "miss" and "buff" and "fill" have extra letters at the end.


A syllable is how many breaths it takes to say a word.
