Structured literacy uses systematic and explicit methods to teach decoding and word identification. Structured literacy is beneficial to all students but especially to students who have had difficulty learning to read and spell.
Structured literacy teaches phonology, sound-symbol, syllables, morphology, syntax and semantics. Phonology is the study of the sound structure in spoken words. This includes phonemic awarenes which is the ability to distinguish, segment, blend and manipulate sounds in words.
Structured literacy teaches sound-symbol association which is the alphabetic principle: to associate sounds with letters.
Structured literacy teaches syllables. Knowing the six syllable types helps students associate vowel spellings with vowel sounds. Syllable division rules help students to divide and decode unfamiliar words, especially longer words.

Students like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for older students and adults. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There’s an answer key at the the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book.
