First Words Fast
Innovative 3-Key Formula
A unique phonics system uses charming images and color-coding to visually pair letters with picture cues that match their sounds. These picture cues enable children to decode words, even words that “can’t be sounded out” because they “don’t follow the rules.”
*Note how both the short and long sounds of vowels are represented. If the vowel sound in a word is short, the chalkboard showing “adding” is the picture cue. If the vowel sound in a word is long, the angel is the picture cue.
*The Copycats and Silent Partners
easily teach other ways to spell a sound.
A rich network of associations among the Sight Words on the Word Wall provides mnemonic cues to further help in learning them joyfully and quickly.
