    I can't imagine being an interventionist without this all-important tool!I appreciate the scaffolding from phonemic-awareness to phonics-based instruction.The focus on segmenting/blending alone is worth its weight in gold!Lesson layouts make planning easy,and the storybooks are appreciated for the emphasis on meaning.Thank you for the best literacy program ever!


  3. Complete, thorough Kindergarten tutoring program 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

    Sound Partners is an excellent tutoring program for kindergarten level learners. It includes phonemic awareness, segmenting, and blending practice, phonics instruction for consonants, short vowels, and five consonant digraphs. The program is scripted, making it very easy for tutors to use. My student is making great progress after only a few sessions!

    I have found this program a big success with K-1 students, where other programs could not meet these students needs.


  5. Content is good! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2013

    I am excited about Sound Partners as an intervention tool. It seems easy to use and explicit and systematic for kindergarten. I will probably use it this year as one of my evidence-based programs in the Title One program for Tier III students. I am hoping it makes the list for our District.
