The Edmark Reading Program has long helped beginning readers of all ages who need an alternative to phonics to learn to read. The key to this success is the program's use of a carefully sequenced, highly repetitive word recognition method combined with errorless learning. The program motivates students by breaking learning into steps that ensure that even the poorest readers achieve over 90% accuracy. This approach eliminates incorrect responses and helps students view themselves as readers.
The Edmark Reading Program serves as a sole reading program or as a supplement to a phonics-based or other type of reading program. In Level 1, students learn 150 frequently seen sight words from kindergarten and Grade 1 reading levels and the endings -s, -ed, and -ing. In Level 2, students learn an additional 200 words from Grades 1-3 reading levels.
Students begin by recognizing and reading a new word in isolation and then in the context of phrases, sentences, and stories. They use their newly learned words in a variety of reading activities to reinforce new learning, ensure automatic word recognition, and facilitate the generalization of their reading skills to new and varied situations.
