The 120 parent-led lessons in the Level K Course Book are open-and-go and were carefully designed to reduce teaching time, yet be academically robust.

All of this is taught in gentle, natural, and enjoyable ways for the child.

The Reading Booster A Cards and Reading Booster A Books Set are also needed to complete this course.

Each lesson in the Level K Course Book will direct you to work on the beautiful and fun Reading Booster Cards and/or Books. The child will go through the Cards and Books at his or her own pace. Once a card is mastered, your child selects a sticker from the sticker sheets in the back and places it on the “Mastered” circle at the bottom of the card. 

Each card focuses on a certain phonics principle or a group of kindergarten sight words. Review cards are placed intermittently throughout the cards. These Reading Booster Cards will also tell you when to read the Reading Booster Books. These adorable and fascinating books correlate directly with each card. 

Because the Reading Booster A Cards includes consumable stickers and has maze pages that are consumable, they may not be reusable for your family. You may choose to purchase a set for each child completing the course.

If the child finishes the Reading Booster A Cards before the Level K course book is completed, the child can move on to the Reading Booster B Cards while finishing this course.
