Forming a student centered learning environment in Literacy has never been less complicated, than with the Phonics Garden reading system. To date, more than 180 different research studies conclude that teaching phonics is the best way for children to learn how to read. Phonics instruction improves children's word recognition, spelling, and reading comprehension skills. In addition, phonics instruction that is direct and follows a particular sequence, is more effective than phonics instruction that is not systematic or no phonics instruction at all.
In today's education climate, success is ensuring achievement for every student. To reach this goal, parents and educators need tools to help their children reach success. Phonics Garden enables student progress monitoring through systematic and explicit instruction to help teachers easily understand student performance. Throughout the program students step through learning objects from level to level, book to book, allowing for easy and simple learner evaluations which help instructors determine learning patterns. The teacher uses this information to help them make more informed instructional decisions based on each student's academic needs.
