Children need explicit, systematic instruction and repeated practice of literacy skills in four broad areas: alphabetics (phonemic awareness), fluency, comprehension, and writing. The ABRACADABRA activities provide opportunities for children to develop and practice these skills, in a playful and engaging way.

Sounds, Letters, and Words (Alphabetics) present various new ways to explore, discover and play with sounds.

Students will find a variety of texts that help them to practice all elements of Reading (Fluency).

Small group discussions are encouraged in several Understanding the Story (Comprehension) activities, which also reinforce students’ understanding of the story.

Lastly, students will be able to practice their spelling in two Writing (Typing) activities.
