Phonics Lessons

Math Lessons | Reading Lessons

Smart Tutor’s Phonics curriculum helps students learn systematic and predictable relationships between written letters and spoken sounds. Lessons include animated interactive activities that help students master consonant sounds, short & long vowels, consonant blends, consonant digraphs, vowel digraphs, diphthongs, r-controlled vowels, word families, syllabification, context clues and tricky word strategies. These visually rich, audio-supported lessons are especially appropriate for students with special needs ( ESE / Special Ed ), students learning English as a second language ( ELL / ESL / ESOL ), and struggling learners ( Title I / Transition students ).
