As a teacher, I want my students to have a toolbox of strategies they can use to decode words. Fundations has given my first graders the confidence to look at a multisyllabic word, break it into its parts, and then look for recognizable chunks like blends, glued sounds, and v-e patterns.

Overview

The research-based approach of the Fundations program allows teachers to confidently present a carefully structured reading, spelling, and handwriting curriculum using engaging materials and multimodal techniques.

Pioneered by Barbara Wilson, Fundations is grounded in the science of reading and guides teachers to provide effective instructional practices in print concepts, phonemic awareness, phonics and word study, vocabulary, automaticity/fluency, and comprehension. Instruction and practice occur in a systematic, cumulative, and explicit manner that maximizes classroom time and allows students to experience greater gains in the skills required for independent reading.
