Building the strong reading foundation every student deserves can be a struggle. Saxon Phonics and Spelling was created to support you in rising to the challenge. Born out of a mother’s personal mission to help her dyslexic son learn to read, Saxon Phonics and Spelling was developed to provide targeted foundational skill instruction using interactive, multisensory approaches to keep students engaged, excited, and advancing.
Saxon’s approach to teaching phonics and spelling concepts is based on foundational research in science of reading and cognitive science, and the program has been found to be consistently effective for children of varying ability levels and socioeconomic backgrounds.
A PRES Associates, Inc. Randomized Control Trial shows that Saxon Phonics and Spelling students outperformed students using other programs in the areas of spelling, reading, and phonics.
Teachers reported feeling increasingly knowledgeable about—and prepared to teach—reading, spelling, and writing to students of varying proficiency levels.
Designed to save time and facilitate flexibility, the Saxon Phonics and Spelling program can be used as a standalone or in conjunction with other reading programs to fill in the gaps.
