Fingertip Books™ consist of:

1. •Five sets of Student Books with Teacher Manuals

2. •Activity Sheets and three Spelling Books


They are based on the Orton-Gillingham (O-G) approach to teaching reading.   

These books would still benefit teachers who are not trained in O-G because they provide a systematic phonics format to follow.   

These books can be used with regular ed and special ed students.
