Science of Reading Research

 
It is simply not true that there are hundreds of ways to learn to read…when it comes to reading we all have roughly the same brain that imposes the same constraints and the same learning sequence.

 

DR. STANISLAS DEHAENE
Reading in the Brain, 2009
 
 
 For decades, schools have taught children the strategies of struggling readers, using a theory about reading that cognitive scientists have repeatedly debunked. And many teachers and parents don't know there's anything wrong with it.
EMILY HANFORD
At a Loss for Words, 2019
 
When it comes to reading, the child is literally building the neural circuitry within the brain that links the sounds of spoken words, or phonemes, to the print code and the letters that represent these sounds.

Hear from teachers

I LOVE THESE! I have used SO many of these decodable readers and they are engaging for even my most reluctant reader! - MARGARET
My kids love the Road to Decode! They ask to take their books home to read to their parents. - JUDY
Using the decodable books has allowed my students to practice reading the sound/spelling patterns we have been working on.  It is allowing them to build fluency when reading words with those patterns. - KRISTI
I love using these in my small groups to help students transfer their phonics skills. We underline, make lists, and do repeated readings for fluency. - NICOLE
