What type of student is Blast Off to Reading for?

Blast Off to Reading!  is a reading program for students, ages 7 to 13, who are dyslexic or who simply struggle to read and spell. This is also very helpful for children with communicative issues, an auditory processing disorder, as well as a auditory discrimination problems.

How does this program work?

This Orton-Gillingham based reading program contains fifty lessons with five review lessons. The lessons will walk you through the process of teaching your student to read and spell. This is done systematically with short workbook exercises followed by the online games and tools. The program includes four components: 1) the online flash cards, 2) the online dictations, 3) the workbook, and 4) the online games. All you need to purchase is the book, everything else is included at no extra charge.

A typical lesson:

1) starts with a review using the online flash cards,

Blast Off to Reading in the Classroom

Blast Off to Reading for the Smart Board and Distance Learning, BlastOffToLearning 

Our Blast Off to Reading program has a teacher's manual available to aide in presenting the lessons to your student(s), either remotely or in a class setting, using either a Smart Board or a computer screen.

The Blast Off to Reading Teachers' Manual is a Kindle e-book that can be accessed on a Mac, PC or Android device using Amazon's Kindle app.  The teachers' manual contains slides to present the lessons using a Smart Board or screen sharing software for distance learning. It can also be used on a laptop or tablet for one-on-one tutoring or teaching a small group.

Slides from the teachers' manual will illustrate the lessons in an organized, explicit manner, encouraging student participation. Lesson slides will be followed by all of the worksheets that are in the students' Blast Off to Reading workbook, which should be done together as a class (or as homework with a proficient reader). Note that each of your students should have their own Blast Off to Reading book so they can follow along with the lesson and do the excercises. They will also need the book to access the online app (the app will require a code word from the book). Check our our bulk rates.

The workbook, lessons and online tools promote phonemic awareness and contain the multi-sensory activities that are required for the Orton-Gillingham approach. Organized in a cumulative, structured manner, with repetition built in, your students won't miss any sounds or rules and will overcome their reading difficulties.

Download the Kindle App to your device that you will be using for screen sharing, purchase the Kindle e-book from Amazon and save to your device.
