About the Program

The Science of Reading reveals a clear link between early literacy skills and later success in reading and writing. It tells us that complex learning cannot take place without strong foundational skills. Open Court Reading Foundational Skills Kits and Word Analysis Kits provide students with the building blocks needed to read and comprehend texts across genres, synthesize information to develop and discuss complex thoughts and ideas, and become fluent storytellers themselves;

Foundational Skills Kits lay the critical groundwork for fluency and comprehension. In Grades K-3, instruction will emphasize: 

  • Letter knowledge and phonemic awareness
  • Oral blending and segmentation
  • Phonics to learn sound/spelling relationships
  • Oral language and vocabulary
  • Fluency, including decoding and encoding
  • Foundational word analysis

Word Analysis Kits prepare students to figure out new vocabulary, read complex text, and make the transition from learning to read to reading to learn. In Grades 4-5, instruction will emphasize:

  • Root words, base words, and affixes
  • Analysis of morphemes to determine word meaning
  • Oral language and vocabulary
  • Reading and comprehending complex text
