Each lesson is divided into several scaffolded activities that feature a wide range of
interactive games and challenges while following a consistent format from lesson to lesson.
The first two parts of each lesson introduce letters and sounds through vibrant, interactive animations led by a character, such as Sam the Ant.
Parts 3 and 4 include activities that build phonemic awareness and phonics skills for the focus letter or sound.
A vocabulary activity allows students to preview words that will be in the e‑book at the end of the lesson.
Children finish the lesson by reading an illustrated e‑book. Read‑to‑me audio options are available to support early readers.
Students are rewarded for completing each lesson with a new creature that hatches and becomes part of their online collection.
