WordMaker is the phonics, phonemic awareness and spelling program that combines the two activities that Dr. Patricia Cunningham, author of The Four-Blocks Literacy Model, has found to be successful in teaching reading. First, students manipulate letters to make words, discovering the patterns as they do this. Students then drag letters to blanks, then click the checkmark to get feedback. Students receive word walls of the words they have mastered. Students then sort the words into rhymes and use the rhymes to decode and spell new words. Student outcomes include emerging readers increase phonemic awareness. Developing readers improve phonics, skills rhyming, blending and chunking. Struggling students practice and improve spelling skills. WordMaker includes complete accessibility options for single-switch users.
