The best way to approach this course is to learn all the components of this reading program and then take parts of it and implement them one at a time. Practice 2 or more routines in a week’s time with your children then add more routines as you see fit. If students aren’t following directions easily and it gets confusing, skip it and come back to it the following week. Start with easy routines and work your way through more. Over time, you will get better!!! I promise! I did!!
