Interactive lessons engage students and are designed to promote success.
Each ten-word lesson is built around a topic covered in that grade level (4–8) and follows a consistent format. While the topics and words are on level, readability is two grades lower, allowing students who struggle to access material at their own level.
Each activity provides immediate feedback that coaches students toward the correct answer. Engaging lessons give students multiple exposures to each word, leading to long-term retention. Audio support provides extra scaffolding.
