A trusted and proven system for teaching literacy

Based on nearly two decades of extensive research and pioneering advancements in the science of reading, the One95 literacy system was designed to create measurable impact for every developing reader.


Kindergarteners build upon foundational reading standards, using phonemic awareness as an anchor for mastery of letter-sound correspondences. The program introduces reading and writing application tasks, supporting students in developing their automaticity in sound-to-grapheme connections.

Grade 1

Grade 1 students use consistent routines, dialogues, phonics chip colors, and gestures to ensure learning is focused on mastering skills instead of varied instructional processes. Consistent, fun, and explicit lesson structures in sequential order help students make progress.

Grade 2

Grade 2 students sustain steady progress toward fluency as they work on strengthening and mastering their phonics and phonemic awareness skills. Using consistent and explicit lesson structures, and learning phonics skills in sequential order, students will successfully identify, read, and write grade-level text.

Grade 3

Grade 3 focuses on using the previously taught foundational phonemic awareness and phonics skills to build automaticity in reading multisyllable words in both isolation and in text. Instruction centers on explicitly teaching the six syllable types as well as the morphological structures of words. Decoding and encoding application tasks ensure students have the word attack skills necessary for reading and writing text with increasing complexity.

Grade 4

Grade 4 students engage with authentic text based on science, social studies, and pop culture topics to learn word attack strategies. The program uses explicitly designed word study routines to analyze words using multisyllabic patterns and morphological structures. Multisyllable word work with explicit instruction on the six syllable types and morphology instruction for building word knowledge and meaning are key features.

Grade 5

Grade 5 students continue to strengthen their literacy skills and prepare for more complex texts in middle school. Sustained word study routines help them analyze complex words using multisyllabic patterns and morphological structures. Science, social studies, and pop culture topics keep them engaged.
