PAF is a comprehensive reading program that integrates spelling and handwriting instruction and provides all the materials needed to plan and implement lessons. Many of the materials, such as the PAF Reading Series (decodable chapter books), can be used independently. The PAF curriculum follows a step-by-step process to guide children from learning the sounds of letters to a mastery of reading.
The PAF reading materials are unique in that they only contain words made of sounds that have been previously taught. This provides practice decoding words and prevents the development of inappropriate strategies, such as guessing at words. The PAF Reading Program includes:
PAF Reading Series
New decodable chapter books from the authors of PAF that follow the PAF instructional sequence. Each book has a corresponding Teacher Edition. These engaging chapter books with controlled text can also be used to supplement any reading program.
PAF Skills Books
The PAF Skills Books, which supplement the readers in the PAF Reading Series, include activities for teaching reading accuracy and fluency, handwriting, spelling, and comprehension.
