The scope and sequence build skills from one module to the next by supporting new phonetic concepts while also reviewing those previously covered. Students are never asked to make a learning leap they are not prepared to make.

    We cannot overstate the significance of the results for a group of students that struggled – sometimes for years – to realize educational gains. More importantly, their classroom became a safe-space and community for students who often came to GLA lacking confidence. These once timid, reserved, and unsure students were suddenly raising their hands to answer questions and eager to go up to the board to fill in answers.

    Class with Building Blocks Phonics at GLA have helped me to be more informed, build connections with people giving me more security of feeling better about myself. Without reading, you can only go so far.

    Reading opens doors. I couldn’t help my kids, but I can now read with my grandchildren. We don’t have to be who we used to be. We are growing. Even at church people’s attitudes have changed. They used to laugh at me when I read at church, now people help me and give encouragement. I feel more equal to others.
