Heggerty Curriculum

Through the daily lessons, students engage in activities teaching early skills such as rhyming and onset fluency, basic skills of blending and segmenting sounds, and working with the complex and advanced skills of adding, and deleting phonemes, and the skills of substituting phonemes is taught in Weeks 19 and beyond. The lessons are taught with explicit teacher modeling and scaffolded support to meet the needs of all learners in a classroom. The skills taught are supplemental to the literacy curriculum that is currently in place. When the lessons are taught consistently each day, teachers see improvement in students reading, spelling, and writing, as the students learn to hear the sounds in words.
