After observing Dede Pinson teach a first grade lesson using “Tiles”, I said, “Where is the manual for this strategy? Other teachers need to know about “Tiles!”

I’m so glad Dede and Stephanie have created a step by step program for teachers to use in their classrooms. Their initiative to instruct young learners in phonemic awareness and phonics skills will revolutionize early reading and writing instruction in schools across the country.
