  • Five-Day Lesson Overview: Use this five-day chart as a reference for the types of lessons that are included in each week of the program.
  • Reading Observation Form: This form provides teachers with a format to record observations of students’ reading progress.
  • Alphabet Recognition Form: Teachers will use this form to review and record students’ letter recognition.
  • High Frequency Reading Vocabulary Assessment: Teachers will use this form to record and assess vocabulary acquisition as students progress through reading skill levels.
  • Dictation Recording Form: Teachers will use these forms to record and score students’ skill level at recording auditory data.
  • Literacy Wings Content Focus: Teachers and administrators can use this chart to review the scope and sequence of the Literacy Wings intervention program.
  • Using Elkonin Boxes: Teach phonemic awareness by having students listen for individual sounds and mark where they hear them in the boxes. Michele Dufresne produced two videos to demonstrate this method: Video 1  Video 2
