The phonic progression used in the books matches that in the Sounds-Write program and Dandelion Readers. These books are a great additional resource for any teacher who is introducing phonics to their students in a structured sequence.

Each SoundCheck has an assessment for pre and post testing as well as an explanation of where to start, comprehensive teacher’s notes, ideas for phonemic awareness warm-ups and blackline masters to generate all necessary classroom activities. SoundCheck can be used with groups and individuals. It is easy to use both in the classroom and at home.
