Fundations® utilizes a structured literacy approach grounded in the science of reading to make learning to read fun while laying the groundwork for lifelong literacy. The program’s research-based approach and extensive materials allow K–3 teachers to confidently present a carefully structured reading, spelling, and handwriting curriculum using engaging, multisensory techniques. Fundations® is aligned with the science of reading and guides teachers to provide effective instructional practices.

  • Use the Teacher’s Manual to prepare a daily learning plan and practice lesson activity procedures.
  • Visualize the flow and pace of a full Fundations lesson completed with fidelity.
