Fast ForWord Reading Readiness
Introduces Familiarity with Print
Fast ForWord Reading Readiness builds pre-reading skills designed for 4-5 year old children. It helps students build the cognitive skills needed for reading, including:
- Letter recognition and naming
- Phonological awareness
- Letter-sound associations
Fast ForWord Reading Readiness is the first reading program in the Fast ForWord Reading series. It is skipped by older children, but is a tremendous help for children who have not developed letter recognition skills. It has six exercises:
Students build letter-sound association skills and gain dexterity with the alphabet on a roller coaster ride.
Students connect letters with sounds using cards to match text to phonics. This program builds phonological awareness and phonological working memory.
This exercise helps listening accuracy and learning to follow multiple-step verbal instructions. These improved language processing skills also develop pre-reading decoding and working memory skills.
