  • Essential background knowledge for teachers
  • 148 lesson plans (10 “Getting Ready” lessons, 128 concept lessons, and 10 review lessons)

Can you teach UFLI Foundations without the purchasing the manual? Certainly. We have developed free companion resources to accompany each concept, so you can create your own lesson plans to go along with them. However, we’ve done all the work for you in the manual, and the UFLI Foundations lesson plans are so awesome (we’re not bragging – it’s what we’ve been told by teachers who have piloted the program over the past two years), you won’t want to miss out!

We have worked closely with our publisher, Ventris Learning, to keep the cost affordable for teachers. Proceeds will support UFLI’s work creating fabulous resources to support effective reading instruction.
