Resources for All Foundational Skills

The extensive collection of resources and practice activities in Foundations A-Z cover all foundational skills, including phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, phonics (including advanced word study), print concepts, and fluency.

Foundational Support for All Elementary Students

Most foundational skills programs limit instruction to primary elementary grades K-2, leaving upper elementary students in grades 3-5 with less age-appropriate resources and foundational support. Foundations A-Z offers foundational instruction for all elementary students, including those in upper elementary grades, with advanced word study, phonics instruction with an emphasis on affixes, and morphology to develop and strengthen reading proficiency.

Browse the Professional Development Library for quick, on-demand videos, podcasts, or articles to enhance the quality of your instruction. Teachers can boost their confidence in delivering Science of Reading-aligned instruction in as little as 5 minutes.

A Wide Range of Fiction and Nonfiction Books

Students have access to a wide variety of digital and printable books, including shared readers, decodable books and passages, and grade level texts that gradually advance in complexity as students age-up. These books include both fiction and nonfiction titles that expose students to real-world topics and build background knowledge.

An Immersive and Multisensory Student Experience

Foundations A-Z offers digital and printable independent student practice options in the form of videos, games, digital books, and quizzes that are available 24/7 in the student portal. These resources are accompanied by a wide variety of printable practice sheets and cards that offer a tactile learning experience.
