Heggerty Decodable Toucan Books

The Toucan Series is a set of 6 decodable books for students in 2nd – 4th grade. It was created with our older learners in mind to provide important reading opportunities. Each book is beautifully illustrated and includes a teacher guide and a glossary for non-fiction (NF) books. Stories are meant to be read in a single sitting (25-30 pages in length), and the skills increase in complexity with each book.

The Early Pre-K Phonological Awareness curriculum is meant for learners in 3- and 4-year-old classrooms, and the Early Learning and Development standards across all states were used to plan the lessons for instruction. While the standards and expectations differ from state to state, the Early Pre-K curriculum will teach 5 phonological awareness skills. The skills of rhyme, initial phoneme isolation, and blending are introduced at the beginning of instruction. Segmenting words and Final Phoneme Isolation are introduced in later weeks of instruction.

5 Phonological Awareness Skills
Rhyme repetition, recognition, and production
Initial Phoneme Isolation, including listening for a focus sound, alliteration and generating words that begin in a specific sound
Blending words, syllables, body-coda, and onset-rime (Note: we do not blend at the phoneme level like we do in the current PreK curriculum)
Segmenting into words, syllables, and onset-rime (begins in week 7; we do not segment into phonemes like we do in the current PreK curriculum)
Final Phoneme Isolation (introduced in Weeks 24-35)
2 Early Literacy Skills
Alphabet Knowledge
Language Awareness: Nursery Rhymes and sentences

The lessons include explicit language to teach the skills and provide directions for each activity. Teacher modeling and support is included within the lessons, along with hand motions.

The beginning weeks of instruction provide teachers with lessons for “Setting the Stage” to help students learn about listening for sounds and developing an understanding of the language play activities .
