Language to Literacy Phase II

This course is designed to continue strengthening the skills built in Phase I, while also working on improving your child's spelling and decoding skills in order to enhance their reading comprehension.

In Phase II of the Language to Literacy Program we pick up right where we left off and continue to move through our back-to-basics hierarchy. Phase II continues to address all of the previous goals, and we focus on improving decoding and spelling skills while establishing specific strategies for improved reading comprehension.

Goals of Phase II include:

  • Continued improvement of phonological skills along the hierarchy (emphasis on application of sound/letter correspondence to decoding and spelling)
  • Movement beyond phonological skills into prefix/suffix awareness, creation of mental images of words, and explicit learning of spelling rules and patterns
  • Explicit learning of decoding and spelling skills
  • Improved reading comprehension
  • Improved oral and written language skills

Program may help your child if they struggle with:

  • Paying attention and listening;
  • Asking for repetitions or expressing when they don’t understand;
  • Following directions or remembering information;
  • Getting and staying organized;
  • Understanding syllables and sounds in words;
  • Understanding the meaning of words;
  • Reading and sound-letter correspondence;
  • Understanding and remembering what they have read.

LLP is organized around three-day cycles.

“Phase II of the Language to Literacy Program has been absolutely wonderful! Johnny has become more independent completing homework and not wanting help to complete it (double checking it together, of course). It has also been fun to see Johnny use a dictionary to help him learn vocabulary! I would highly recommend this program!”
