Heggerty Books

Heggerty Phonemic Awareness is a 35-week curriculum of daily phonemic awareness lesson plans.

Developed on a systematic scope and sequence of skills, each level focuses on eight phonemic awareness skills, along with two additional activities to develop letter and sound recognition, and language awareness. The lessons are designed to deliver tier 1 phonemic awareness instruction in a whole group setting and only take 10-12 minutes. For students in need of extra support, portions of lesson could be used in a small group and serve as a “second dose” of phonemic awareness instruction.

Pre-Kindergarten

The pre-kindergarten curriculum in English (purple book) uses nursery rhymes to introduce 3-4 year old students to language play.

The lessons include the same ten daily phonemic awareness skills as the kindergarten and primary versions. By the end of preschool your students will begin to build a repertoire of classic nursery rhymes as they learn to enjoy language play.

The revised 2020 Edition of the English Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum includes increased complexity of words and tasks for multiple skills, a reorganization of the sequencing of skills within the 35 weeks, a reordering of lesson sequencing to allow for an easier transition into phonics instruction, and refined teacher modeling and support instructions.

Kindergarten

The kindergarten curriculum in English (blue book) spends more time on each skill, and is used for those aged 5-6.

The kindergarten curriculum covers all consonants, short vowels, digraphs, blends, and rime patterns, with long vowel words being introduced in the later weeks of this curriculum. By comparison, the yellow book also goes further into long vowels and introduces R-controlled vowels, special vowel sounds, and multisyllabic words.

The primary curriculum in English (yellow book) is typically used for those aged 6 and up.

It can also be used with individual students or small groups in higher grades for remedial work on specific skills.
