The Early Literacy Skills Builder Starter Kit introduces students to all five of the National Reading Panel components, including phonemic awareness, with a friendly puppet named Moe. Materials are included for two starting levels with a detailed Teacher’s Guide, Student Response Book, a storybook, and Assessment Manual for both levels. For students who do not respond well to pictures, begin at Level A, which relies heavily on object use paired with picture representation of the objects. For students who may already have established picture discrimination and awareness of books, start with Level 1, Lesson 1 to develop the foundations of literacy—conventions of print, phonemic awareness, letter-sound correspondence, and sight word vocabulary. Mastery of 75% or higher on the assessments ensure students are ready to move on to the next level of the ELSB Curriculum. Ideal for students in early education or students with significant developmental disabilities.
