Enhance your purchase
Each lesson is created to include a new sound or rule and a reading task followed by several exercises, which review concepts taught in that lesson as well as those taught previously. This provides the perfect blend of reading and writing, with review, while the student learns to become aware of sounds and how they are put together to form words. After every ten lessons is a review section to further go over concepts just learned.
This book is colorful, with large text and a layout that is created to be visually appealing to children.
This Program Includes:
1. (Free) On-line spelling drills, for the dictation portion of the lessons.
2. (Free) Flash Cards (PDF format).3. (Free) On-line phonics games for fun reinforcement.
All of the above can be found at the author's website.

"Blast Off to Reading is an amazing instructional tool that I use with students. The lessons help my struggling readers focus on letter/sound relationships, vowels, etc. The games, especially the b, d reversal games, really help and are so enjoyable my students forget that they're learning at the same time!" - Dawn Campbell, Teacher, ME, working toward OG cert.
"This has been a helpful resource for students to gain access to practice activities that are meaningful and short. They are set up to teach the most critical skills in a timeframe and with features such as games that hold student's engagement as well as target foundational skills." - Allison Verschueren, Teacher, BS, MsED, NBCT
"Last year a fellow colleague introduced me to the I Can Fly Reading and Blast Off to Reading program. Since then I have recommended it to everyone working with students. I use the app daily to reinforce the lesson plans in the book. My students have their own workbook that they enjoy using. The app gives my students endless practice. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have it." - Deanne Lakatos, Tutor, OG Practitioner
