The I Can Fly Reading Program, Books A & B, are lesson-based workbooks which provide lessons in phonics for children who are just beginning to learn to read. The methods used in this program are based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, in that every sound and spelling rule is taught in a structured, cumulative manner with repetition. Perfect for all young students, especially those who have learning delays, speech and language difficulties, APD, autism, and those with a family history of dyslexia and may be dyslexic.
This program is perfect for homeschooling, tutoring and for parents who need to help their children. There's no training needed, and the program is step-by-step, requiring no planning or lesson preparation. This program can also be used in the classroom with our Kindle version for the Smart Board or for remote teaching. All that is needed is the Kindle App (which can be used on PCs and Macs).
A web-app, to augment the program, is available at the Blast Off to Learning website.
