Phonograms are the building blocks of nearly all English words and anyone can teach them!
With the Thriving Readers Starter Kit, you'll build a solid foundation for strong readers in just 15 minutes a day, using low prep easy activities that build their phonics and spelling skills.
A deficit in letter sound knowledge can lead to:
slow readers who sound out every letter in isolation but cannot blend together
anxious, self conscious readers who don't want to be called on to read in class
avoiding or rushing through tasks that involve reading
poor reading comprehension skills which can affect grades in other subjects
withdrawal from activities they once enjoyed because they feel like they aren't smart enough
poor spelling skills
As a literacy specialist and homeschooling mom, I know you worry if you're using the right curriculum and methods to teach your children or students how to read.
You might be wondering why certain students, or perhaps your own child, can't seem to figure out how to read simple words even though you have taught them all the letter sounds.
You might be worried that something is wrong...maybe they have a learning disability?
Or maybe they are starting to hate school because they struggle in reading.
Maybe you don't understand why they struggle so much with spelling and sight words?
You're tired of teaching the same things over and over and not seeing any progress.
Or maybe, you haven't even gotten here yet buy you want to make sure you do it right!
You might be using strategies like word sorts and word walls.
You probably teach sight words with cute little activities and worksheets that focus on memorization.
You're probably also using leveled readers and books with repeated reading.
And you're NOT seeing the results you want.
I know this because I was you a few years ago.
And after learning about the science of reading and appropriate dyslexia instruction, I learned why these methods were not working for all of my students.
What if I told you there was a better way?
The Thriving Readers Starter Kit is the 2-step system to help you create successful readers in just 15 minutes a day!
Here's what you'll get:
126 printable phonogram (sound spelling) cards to explicitly teach and review all sounds and spelling combinations in just a few minutes a day
Phonogram Drills - exactly how to use the phonogram cards to do daily drills that build decoding and spelling skills at all levels
Sound wall components (printable) so you easily teach, review, and reference the 44 speech sounds, their spellings, and proper mouth formation for improved spelling and decoding
Easy to follow lesson plan so you don't have to think about what to do, just follow the directions
Video training showing you exactly what to do, and why, so you can be confident in your implementation
What if your students (or child) became proficient readers and no longer struggled through reading tasks and activities?
Imagine watching your students (or child) come to a new, unfamiliar word... and they just read it on their own.
Imagine students volunteering to read and reading for fun.
Imagine not having to worry about spelling or sight words, because your students are all confident readers and good spellers.
Yes, this is possible!

I had no idea there was a right way and a wrong way to teach reading... and that many teachers don't even know about the right way!
Hi, I'm Delilah, and I am on a mission to empower educators and parents to use research backed methods when teaching reading.
I had no idea that I didn’t learn how to properly teach reading in my teacher training program. Even with a Master’s degree in education, nothing about the science of reading or dyslexia was covered.
I thought I was doing the right thing teaching sight words, using leveled readers, and telling students to ‘look for clues’ to guess words as they read.
But then I got a job at a dyslexia school and realized I had been doing it all wrong! I learned about explicit phonics instruction, decodable texts, phonics based spelling, and multisensory instruction.
I was shocked that I had not even heard of these things that are based on research and proven to help struggling readers catch up.
That was 8 years ago and I never stopped learning! In addition to dyslexia training, I did training on Orton-Gillingham and Lindamood Bell and became a literacy specialist. I started my blog to create a resource for others in the same place I was in many years ago.
Working at that dyslexia school and using the right strategies and activities (which is what I share in this product), I learned how effective they were for ALL learners, and was able to help many more students become confident readers and spellers.
If you implement these strategies, you too will feel successful and your students will thank you!

Who this product is for

You're a teacher of struggling readers and need something that works for phonics to turn things around
You're a homeschooling parent of a beginning reader or a struggling reader who wants to implement an easy but effective daily phonics lesson
This isn't for you if:
You're not willing to spend 15 minutes a day using these resources with your students
You want something hands off - this requires you to direct the lesson
You are not able to print and laminate the resources included
You don't think phonics is important
Here are what other happy customers are saying!
You will receive an email with download instructions to access your product. This is a digital product, meaning you will not receive a physical product in the mail. Once you download the files, you can print and use them as directed.
These are for beginning readers or struggling readers regardless of age. These teach all the different ways to read and spell the the 44 phonemes (44 English sounds). I use these with students from pre-k through middle school and even high school when needed.
Yes, I do! If you're not pleased with your purchase, please send an email to email@example.com within 30 days of your purchase.
These are meant to be printed BUT they can be used in both virtual or in person lessons.
This is a great starting point and really builds the phonics component in beginning and struggling readers. The other component to building strong readers is phonemic awareness. You can add my Phonemic Awareness Task Cards to your order to have a more complete program. I do still recommend you supplement this with multisensory phonics activities and phonics workbooks that follow systematic instruction.
Yes, you can! This can really be used by anyone as I show you exactly what to do and it's very easy. There is no planning or grading involved. You just lead the lesson which is mostly auditory using the flashcards and blending template.
I truly hope that my products help your reader.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of purchase and I will give you a full refund.
