Sing, Spell, Read & Write is a learning-to-read curriculum that uses a 36-step program of carefully sequenced systematic, explicit phonics instruction to build fluent independent readers. For more than two decades, veteran educator Sue Dickson developed and field-tested this program in her own classroom. Where other reading programs were failing the students who were struggling the most, Mrs. Dickson saw first-hand the amazing results her students achieved when she combined music with multimodal teaching strategies. Using look, listen, point, sing-along, and echo routines along with gross motor and fine motor activities, the program activitely engages the senses and effectively reaches all types of learners. Virtually every child is assured of success. Today, the program has a proven, nationwide track record and the soundness of such an approach is strongly supported by current research on brain function, language acquisition, and reading.

Great Teaching tool! Apr 4, 2007
SSR&W is a wonderfully thought out phonics & writing program. I have already seen improvement in both confindence and ability in my Kindergartener. I would not bother with the Kindergarten level unless your child doesn't have letter recognition. Level 1 was the perfect starting place for us.
Excellent Reading Program! Apr 4, 2007
I finally broke down and purchased this program when, after completing first grade, my daughter still couldn't read. I took her out of school and am homeschooling her using this program, and she loves it! She has greatly improved and my 4 year old son is also wanting to do it every day! We love it and highly recommend it to anyone.
Best phonics program I've found! Feb 3, 2007
I've wanted this program from the beginning for homeschooling. But Scholastic called and asked us if we'd like to try their Phonics program right as my son said he was ready to learn to read. So we started with that. He learned an excellent sight word vocabulary from it, but couldn't sound out words. So we tried Hooked On Phonics. That didn't work for us either. I decided I was going to buy SSR&W, and if that didn't work, hold off on phonics until he was older. We got the combo kit, and after looking through the K level, we started on the 1st grade. He insisted on going through the letters, even though he knows all of them! We are on the letter T, and moving along nicely.
I am very pleased with the instructional video and the teacher's manual. One of the first things I learned is that Bb DOES NOT say Buh! There are no umbrellas in letter land. She explains that that incorrect sound can make it harder to sound out words. It was like a big light bulb. Within a few days of starting the program, my son was sounding out small words. While I don't think it's a miracle, I do think he enjoys this program more than our others, and that helps.
If it weren't for having 2 younger children, I would say I shouldn't have bought the combo kit. My son would have been just fine without the K level. But, I do have 2 others coming up that will probably benefit from the K level.
Great reading program for young kids too! Nov 10, 2006
I have a 4 year old who is really interested in reading, so I decided to buy "Sing, Spell, Read and Write" because the combo kit focuses on younger children too. I've heard great things about the program, and now I can recommend it highly as well. My son isn't one to learn from coloring or doing worksheets, and SSRW has games and songs that have really prepared him to sound out words and begin reading on his own. I'm extremely pleased with this purchase and feel my money was well spent, especially since I have one more son who will use the program.
I have used this program with various students for the past three years and have found it to produce the BEST/MOST EFFECTIVE reading progress for my students. The songs only reinforce student learning and make it fun for the kids. With even only 15 minutes a day, your child WILL learn how to read.
