Frequently Asked Questions


How long should a level take to complete?


The time it takes to complete a level depends on the student or group of students. It’s all about the stage of the students—not their age. Generally speaking, if a new sound, rule, or Sight Word is introduced one day, that sound or rule will become part of the following day’s review in Steps 1–4. Students will be getting multiple response opportunities in the following days and weeks in order to cement that new concept into long-term memory. A number of new sounds, rules, and Sight Words are introduced in Step 5. The time needed for students to master the new material in Step 5 will indicate the pace at which you can move through a level.
