WORD TRAINING FILLS THE GAPS

It’s hard to improve when you’re mired in the fundamentals. It can be embarrassing tripping over and sounding out simple words. Online Word Training fills gaps students missed in earlier grades. It addresses foundational skills including phonics, spelling, sentence structure, and fluency. Mastering these skills lets students advance with more confidence and ease.

Students get consistent, interactive online lessons tailored to their own needs. They can practice privately and independently.

  • Independent reading
  • Tutorials from expert and peer coaches for fun, authentic, and relevant learning
  • Checkpoints for understanding and ongoing progress monitoring
  • Encoding and decoding activities
  • Ongoing fluency practice in which students record their readings to track progress
