Starting at Square One is a handwriting (manuscript and cursive) as well as a computer keyboarding program that teaches reading/phonics/spelling AS and not after the alphabet is methodically taught in a special sequence.

How Can You Use This Book?

  • Teach your K-1 students reading, spelling, handwriting, and keyboarding (optional) as the alphabet is taught. 
  • Lay the foundation for your student's literacy: phonemic awareness and word attack skills are learned from the very beginning of the reading process.
  • Teach your older students the phonemic awareness and word attack skills that they never fully learned while first learning to read and spell.
  • Use the completely decodable words as the letters are taught for additional practice in handwriting, reading, and spelling.
  • Teach English as a Second Language (ESL).
