95 Phonics Core Program™

K-Grade 3: Phonics Strand

Taught Whole-Class during the Tier 1 Reading Block

95 Phonics Core Program™ introduction with Dr. Susan Hall, retired Co-Founder and CEO 95 Percent Group

Strengthen your ELA curriculum and improve student outcomes by adding our evidence-based 95 Phonics Core Program™ to your daily reading block to close skill gaps and reduce the number of students requiring intervention.


Improve Literacy Outcomes for ALL Students

Our 95 Phonics Core Program™ was created in response to the high number of customer requests for a phonics resource that was grounded in the Science of Reading and the Principles of Structured Literacy which was non-existent in their required ELA curriculums.

These same educators saw the measurable gains among students receiving intervention instruction with 95 Percent Group materials and they wanted a program that used our explicit, systematic, and sequential phonics instructional practices to replicate such outcomes with all students.


 Each K-3 Grade Level 95 Phonics Core Program™ Classroom Kit includes:

  • Teacher's Editions: Scripted, easy to follow lesson plans requiring minimal prep
  • Digital Presentation: Allows for both in-person and remote teaching to guide instruction
