The Sunform Alphabet System is an essential tool in my classroom. If I had to choose only one teaching tool to teach my students to read and write, I would choose Sunform. The success rate of my students using Sunform is amazing.
After teaching the Sunform process starting in Kindergarten, our ISTEP test results revealed a 20% increase of 3rd grade students scoring in the top quartile and zero (0) students scoring in the bottom quartile. Amazing!
We have found no letter reversals in reading and writing since using the Sunform Alphabet System.
With Sunform we are diagnosing fewer learning disabilities and our special education students are functioning above the level their I.Q.’s would predict or expect.
Sunform Alphabet System came to my attention through a research route…The system went beyond my expectations in solving phonemic problems in our low-skilled students. Almost immediately, student motor control and letter recognition accelerated.
I am a kindergarten teacher that has used the Sunform Alphabet for over 10 years! I truly love it! After the first year of using it, I saw an amazing improvement in how quickly my children learned all the letter sounds and their journal writing (sounding out words phonetically). At Parent Orientation every year I tell the parents how amazed they will be with their child’s handwriting by the end of the year! I feel parents see and love the results too! I feel very fortunate our school system adopted this program for phonics and handwriting. I hope we never give it up!!
The methods used in the Sunform Alphabet System are supportive techniques and strategies which may be effectively used by all primary teachers to provide a sound foundation for any reading program.
