Your Complete Guide To Teaching Early Literacy with Phonics in Motion Fun Learning Strategies.

It's time to ditch hard-to-remember rules and boring, stressful, one-size-fits-all curriculums.

This book is the most complete guide to Phonics in Motion ever made. People often discover this book as a part of their search for phonemic awareness books ... and are elated to find something that offers that and so much MORE.

Covered in-depth are the four components: the Kinesthetic Motions for the Phonemes (KMPs) which are motions that help learners to hear the sounds that letters make; the Reading and Writing Monster which teaches kids how to write each letter while also embedding the KMP (sound) that each letter makes; the Language Calendar for modeled writing; and the Vowel House for phonics and vowel development.

This book will teach you how to teach with child-like, fun stories, song, and movement.

The four components of PIM develop reading and writing with authentic instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. 

ANNUAL SCHOOL YEAR LITERACY STRATEGY


Your one-stop shop for all things PIM. Designed for professional educators and used by thousands of Preschool through Third Grade teachers, Intervention Specialists, Speech Therapists, Literacy Coaches, and more, Phonics in Motion will change the way you teach early literacy.

Regardless of what you may already be using in your classroom, and what you might "have" to do, PIM can be layered in without removing anything else. Add PIM to bring a painfully boring curriculum to life. Watch your learners' faces light up with smile after smile as you engage with the Reading & Writing Monster, use the motions (they want to move!), sing with poetry, demonstrate with the Language Calendar, and spend time in the Vowel House.

Your administrators will wonder what you attribute your success to. Your peers will wonder what these motions are that your learners are having so much fun with. Bring joy to your teaching and to your little ones' learning with PIM.

Our literacy routines do all of the planning and organizing for you so you can easily leverage the components of PIM. This package includes ALL of the tools described in ALL of the family products, and more organized by the PIM Scope & Sequence. Using another scope and sequence? No problem! Access all of the tools organized by phoneme and easily use them with whatever else you are using. Also included is the Phonics in Motion Book and the PIM 101 Virtual Training. Over $700 in product value, wrapped into one product, designed for you.

EASY AND FUN FAMILY LEARNING

We've taken our tried and true educator tools, and simplified them for at-home use for families! If you're a teacher or homeschool parent, head on down to the educator section of our store.

 A heavily requested, simple, and complete teaching module for every letter in the alphabet. Sick of zoom time? Want to spend quality time with your little one while (shhhhh) developing literacy? Lessons are in-person, relationship-based, VERY fun, and child-like.

Designed for parents and grandparents, this program teaches you general literacy teaching best practices. We also provide complete lessons with the KMPs for the alphabet, the Reading & Writing Monster, and all of the steps, content, activities, and downloadables for you to work with your little one(s).

Skill modifications are suggested making this a great place to start for both advanced preschoolers and second graders. Only buy once, and use with children of many ages! This is a great place to get your feet wet with PIM!


The development of phonemic awareness (the ability to hear and differentiate between the smallest sounds in our language) is critical to the long-term learning and mastery of reading and writing. This product is a true gift to preschoolers and kindergarteners as it serves as a critical foundation to successful reading and writing. 

PIM has a Kinesthetic Motion for each sound in our language (KMPs), as well as for various word endings and "chunks." They make learning more memorable, engaging, and fun for both students and teachers.

You want your child to be able to hear each sound (and show you with the motion) before working on matching a letter to a sound or writing letters. Once writing work has begun, the KMPs are used extensively in tandem with phonics work throughout Second and Third Grades. 


If you have the Phonics in Motion book, you know that the Language Calendar (LC) is the center of the show. Adults model written language daily on the LC, involving little ones in the thought process around writing by talking through it in a playful way.

PIM believes in removing stress from learners by always modeling before moving toward independent practice.  As you write an entry on the LC, you integrate all of the components of the PIM system by using the Reading & Writing Monster who lives on the left of the LC, using the KMPs for sounds as you discuss what you have written, and bringing words from the LC to the Vowel House.


Why does the c in ch make a different sound? How about sh, ph, and th? Meet trouble maker H! Once you've introduced trouble maker h and each digraph story, little ones giggle with delight when the letter h shows up in language. Each digraph has a distinct story that we animate for you. You'll use these stories as you write on the Language Calendar, and kids will "hunt" for them as they read and listen.

We've been offering phonics programs to teachers for decades. Finally... a we have something for you too! The Vowel House is a graphic organizer that will soon be your new home for phonics instruction. Your kids won't know that though! They'll be engaging with the characters who live in each window as they learn the sounds that each vowel makes, along with the primary and alternate spelling patterns for that sound. The VH becomes a reference guide to support first graders & up as they develop their analytic decision-making skills related to spelling.
