Systematic, explicit literacy instruction aligned to the Science of Reading

Lalilo phonics and word recognition exercises support students’ mastery of foundational literacy skills and align to foundational reading standards. Students practice phonemic awareness, letter recognition, letter-sound correspondence, blending, segmenting, decoding, fluency, and comprehension through scaffolded lessons. Students work on engaging exercises in various contexts that meet their individual needs to ensure mastery before moving on.

Special Report

The Role of Individualized Lalilo Practice

A study of 1,512 students in grades K–2 shows that early literacy practice with Lalilo is associated with higher levels of growth in general literacy achievement. Further, students who used Lalilo more intensively and for a longer period experienced the most growth in their literacy skills.
