The data tells the story of why Sound Learning is such a powerful tool. Here Kindergarten Teacher, Teresa Monroe, shows data for the dramatic transformation of her class. What the data does not show is her students enthusiasm for reading and writing.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to teach my students using Sound Learning! I had a group this year, many with no prior schooling or parent involvement, who have benefitted tremendously by the way we taught letters and letter sounds this year. I have attached a few screenshots of my I-Station Summaries throughout the year.
As you can see, my class began with 50% Tier 1 in LK and 30% in PA. By February, they grew to 100% in LK and 90% in PA!!! We ended the year strong, with 100% in LK and PA. I am confident that Sound Learning is the reason my class is so prepared for 1st Grade. The objects, poems, stories, etc. that teach each letter are designed so thoughtfully. I have never taught letters in such an intentional and engaging way. I had just as much fun as my kids did! I know my kids will remember what they learned through Sound Learning for years to come.
Thank you, Karen and Julie for standing behind what is best for our kids!
