Sound Cards & Red Words

Our Level 2 – Orange Book Card Bundle & Card Box are included to help with multi-sensory learning.
        • You will review Sound Cards before each lesson with your student.
        • Sound Cards are used throughout the program to introduce, reinforce and review alphabetic letters, consonant digraphs and blends, vowel teams, vowel diphthongs, and common spelling rules.
        • Red Words (Sight Words) do not follow any particular phonemic rule so they CANNOT be sounded out and must be memorized. 
        • For students to read fluently, they need to be able to recognize and read sight words quickly since these words make up about 50% of the words they will encounter when reading a story.
        • Our ONLINE TEACHING GUIDE provides a multi-sensory approach with these red words that will help struggling students memorize these “unfair” words.

* Not all sound cards are shown. Card bundles vary with each book level.

Orton-Gillingham Based Method

Our PRIDE Reading Program incorporates the Orton-Gillingham based method.
“For children with speech deficits, language deficits, or processing deficits, the repetitive nature of the Orton-Gillingham approach is perfect for them. This method utilizes a multisensory step-by-step process for your child to learn every phoneme in the English language.”

“There is a window of opportunity for kids between kindergarten and 2nd grade where if they don’t close their reading gaps before moving onto the next grade, that child will always struggle with reading and writing. It is important you close those gaps as soon as you can.”

“The Orton-Gillingham method is a process. For many students, this is actually the only program that does work for them. Our students are really, really smart kids that just need a different approach to learning.”
