There are two starting points for Foundations - Foundations A or B. If students already have basic phonics knowledge from kindergarten, they may be able to begin with Foundations B their first year, and in some cases they will be able to move quickly through B before spending most of the year completing C and starting D. There is a placement test online to help determine if your students are ready to start with Foundations B or would benefit from going through Foundations A quickly first.
After the first year, first graders will begin where kindergarten left off (generally with Foundations C). However, we do not recommend starting first graders with Foundations C without any prior exposure to Foundations because of some of the advanced concepts taught in Foundations B, such as schwa.
