How can I choose where to start in Teach New Material?


Step 5 displays more content than can be taught in one session. Words for sounds not yet introduced will appear in gray text. In the example shown (Level 16), one new Blend Card is to be introduced at each session. 

Note: Sonday System 2 Levels with Sight Words always begin with a complete set of all Sight Words for the specified level to help distinguish which Sight Words are known or unknown to the students. After reviewing the complete set of Sight Word Cards for that level, choose an unknown Sight Word to teach at this session. 

Click on the Blend Card you want to teach at this session. The chosen card and associated row of words will change to red, so you can see which items you have already taught when returning to teach this level at a later time.

Click  in the Slide Controller to go through the slides, then follow the instructions for dictating words.

If time allows, you may teach multiple concepts within the same session by clicking  to select another Sound Card, Blend Card, or Sight Word. 

If needed, skip sections by clicking  to jump to the next section of the lesson.

If your students are ready and time allows, you may teach multiple concepts from the same section by clicking the pointer icon ‚Äč to select another option.

Note: After a sound, blend, or concept has been taught, the associated cards will be added to Step 1 - Read Sounds and Step 2 - Spell Sounds. New words will also be added to Step 4 - Spell Words.
