Wilson Fundations

Title I uses Fundations as an intervention program with Title I students in grades K-2 to reinforce Fundations lessons that are being delivered in the regular classroom. The Wilson Fundations® makes learning to read fun while laying down the groundwork for life-long literacy. Fundations provides children of varying learning abilities with a foundation for reading and spelling. It provides teachers with the skills and tools needed to present a structured, sequential, and cumulative phonics/spelling program using multisensory teaching techniques.

Fundations thoroughly teaches the Foundational Skills of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and significantly supports other CCSS standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language. As a recognized leader in multisensory language programs, Wilson brings more than a decade of systematic and explicit instruction to the K-3 classroom. Wilson Fundations provides research-based materials and strategies essential to a comprehensive reading and writing program.
