We're excited to announce the release of a new sight words series in collaboration with Jack Hartmann! Jack created engaging videos using the “What’s Missing” and “Mix and Fix” activities described in Jan's book, The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading. Videos will be uploaded twice a week, one on Monday and another on Friday. Jack and Jan hope these songs make learning sight words a joy. You can view these videos here.

If you don’t already subscribe to Jack’s YouTube channel, check it out.  He’s high energy, and the kids love singing and dancing with him.

Welcome Back!

After only 6-8 weeks of intervention, students gain the confidence, proficiency, and skills they need to excel as readers and exit intervention! Based on Jan's bestselling, The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading, The Next Step Forward in Reading Intervention offers intensive, short-term, targeted instruction in reading, writing, word study, and comprehension. It's a step-by-step handbook for literacy teachers, literacy coaches, and reading specialists who are looking for a proven reading invention program that really works.
