The Reading Bugs Program
This is a comprehensive reading program that also includes a writing component. The main concept is a system to isolate letter sounds as they are pulled out of an envelope to reveal each letter.

Like the first set, students pull the word cards out of the envelope slowly to reveal each letter sound, or in some cases, a combination of letters to make one sound. As with the other BUGS sets, there are review strips, achievement stickers, and certificates to celebrate reading success!
