Teaching Sounds (44 Phonograms)

If you’ve ever told your student, “Just sound it out,” then realized you don’t understand the sounds either…

Then keep on scrolling!

Let’s get real for a quick second, teacher friend. If you opened your heart to me in the DMs, would you tell me…

  • you’d rather do bus duty in a snowstorm than explain sounds?
  • your class is just so low and you know they’re missing sound skills?
  • your curriculum has huge gaps in teaching sound-spellings?
  • your student guesses instead of sounding out?
  • you worry you can’t answer parents’ questions about phonics?

It’s not your fault that you don’t know how to teach this

  • You were not taught English well enough in elementary school, either.
  • If you have phonics curriculum, it’s still missing this foundational information
  • Reading science has evolved over the years.
  • Tons of kids are behind from the pandemic, and you’re having to catch them up.

Which is why you need a training and tool that will show you the sounds and exactly teach them to your students.



An on-demand training and simple eBook that will teach you:

  • the 44 sounds in English
  • the most common ways to spell them
  • a simple routine to practice reading and spelling the sounds one-on-one, small group, or whole class
  • a hands-on, low-prep way to practice sounding out words

You’ll also get a Word Mapping Training as a Bonus!
($37 value)

This training will give you:

  • step-by-step examples
  • scripts for EXACTLY what to say
  • hands-on phonics practice for reading and spelling
  • practice cards for over 30 phonics skills



Days Hours Minutes Seconds

English is made up of 44 sounds spelled with combinations of 26 letters.

Teachers all over the US are learning this right alongside you because no one taught them  this either.

  • Your students need to hear the 44 sounds.
  • Then connect them to letters to read.
  • Plus they need to know all the ways to spell those sounds.
  • But first you need this knowledge!

Reading is code of letters based on speech.
You need to know the sounds and the letters that can spell them.



  • Teachers who want to learn more about the phoneme-grapheme connection.
  • Children from preschool to 5th grade
  • Parents with a reader who is below grade level
  • Parents who are interested in preventing reading problems

I’m Anne and I know a little something about teaching kids to read.

Hi, I’m Anne! I a Kindergarten reading specialist, Orton-Gillingham trained dyslexia tutor,  and mom to three kids.

When my daughter was struggling to read and spell, I got the run around from her former school. $3000 of private learning evaluations later, she got a dyslexia diagnosis.

Fortunately, I had some training in dyslexia before kids, and it was so effective, I used it whole clas in 2nd grade. So I immediately got to work with my daughter.

And here’s what I know about reading and spelling:

What works for dyslexic kids, helps all learners. Cognitive science proved this about 40 years ago.


Why is this so discounted?

This is a beta product which means it’s still in creation and testing mode. You get one part immediately and the others will be available on December 5 and January 9. You lock in a low price while I get to work. I’ll raise the price AND remove the bonuses after Cyber Monday.

How much time is this going to take?

You will need to invest a couple hours to do the on-demand trainings. You’ll also need time to prep the materials – probably 20-30.

Then you need to set aside 5-10 minutes a day with your whole class or small groups (or if you work one-on-one).

The truth is it takes only a little time to get started, but once you do, you’ll save so much time. Your admin will be banging down your door to figure out why your students are getting better results.

Do you offer PD hours for this?

At this point, I have not investigated PD hours and how to offer them for you with an on-demand training.

Will this really work for my students?

This will work for 95% of children who can learn to read. The truth is reading will be a struggle for some children with intellectual or cognitive disabilities.

I use this same method with both my kindergarten reading students and my 2nd-4th grade tutoring students. I also used it whole class when I taught 2nd grade. They are all improved with this sounds to spellings strategy.

And, my daughter is dyslexic and autistic and has ADHD. So if she’s experiencing success, it’s very likely your child will, too.

Will this cost a ton of money to print?

This has a limited amount of printables compared to most of what I offer. Plus you can just print what you need as you go.

What’s your refund policy?

Due to the digital nature of this product, I’m unable to offer refunds.

But I will address your concerns and support you! Send me an email and let me know what’s going on. Helping teachers is my jam.



For way less than a set of leveled readers,

you’ll get the foundational knowledge you need to help all students read.

So, grab this now because just like Thanksgiving leftovers, this offer will be gone soon!
