The UFLI Foundations program is extremely well designed on several fronts to enable beginners to learn to read and write. It provides explicit, systematic, comprehensive instruction in all the phonics skills, including letter-sounds, phonemic awareness, decoding, spelling, reading words from memory, and text reading.
It is teacher friendly and supportive by providing background knowledge in the science of reading and clear instructional strategies. I expect that the program will prove highly effective in teaching the foundational skills that beginners need to become proficient readers.

UFLI Foundations was a game changer for both students and teachers. Our students are becoming more proficient in learning to read because our teachers truly understand the science of teaching reading. The direct and explicit instruction provided by UFLI Foundations has increased the confidence and skills of our teachers as shown by our learning gains with students.

I have really enjoyed using UFLI this year and am in awe of what my kindergarteners are reading. It has been so helpful having a scope and sequence that makes sense and builds on itself. The slides make implementation very straightforward from the teacher side, and my students appreciate the consistency. I am so thankful to be using this curriculum with my kindergarteners.
These lessons and word lists have saved me so much planning time.
