Tracking/chaining - real vs. nonsense words?

Hi, it's me again. I'm still working on the project--I'm hoping to get enough put together that I can really begin working with some struggling readers in the area (mostly I'm held up by the lack of public domain line drawings for simple words in the early stages, such as "mat" and "bag"). One thing...

I know nothing about how public domain works. :oops: My question is: Will you have the authority to reject contributions if they are not appropriate? Well, anyone can make a fork of my project if they like--that is, take what I have and split it off and work on their own version with changes and al...

It is only through teaching using the different curriculums available that most people find out what they do and don't like, or what works and what doesn't (in their opinion).

Order of phoneme instruction - how to deal with voice pairs

Hello, it's Destiny again. So far the open curriculum project is going slowly, though we have a few new members, but for my SP project, I've got the fonts I need now and have found heaps of public domain pics, with some artists willing to draw missing pictures.

New to SP and working on open curriculum project

(Before I begin, I want to say that I hope this isn't considered politics--if I should have posted this in another forum/section, please let me know.)
