Read It Once Again Level 1 units systematically include activities that provide explicit instruction on the most basic foundational skills in the pyramid of educational learning.
Read It Once Again recognizes that some children enter our school systems without many of these very basic foundational skills in place.
Other early childhood curriculums may touch on beginning basic skills, but Read It Once Again uses rhyme, rhythm and repetition in our Level 1 units as a strategy to ensure that there is an intentional, extended focus on the most basic skills necessary for future academic success. Research has proven that having a firm understanding of these basic essential skills is necessary to achieve educational success in higher academic learning.
Our Level 1 activities reinforce basic fundamental concepts and are systematically offered in a variety of literacy based lessons throughout every unit and in each domain. Young children learn best when the environment and teaching strategies are solidly predictable with elements of creativity and exploration woven into each day. Read It Once Again uniquely provides a flexible structure.

- Daily Living
