What Is SIPPS?
Literacy builds a foundation for success in school and life. SIPPS (Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words) helps new and struggling readers build the skills and confidence they need to gain reading fluency and comprehension.
SIPPS offers a systematic approach to decoding that supports students in grades K–12 in developing reading fluency and comprehension. For students who struggle with decoding, SIPPS can be used to accelerate students to grade level quickly. Each SIPPS level corresponds to one level in a developmental progression: simple alphabetic, spelling pattern, and polysyllabic/morphemic phases. Daily SIPPS lessons and reading practice in appropriate texts engage students in their own reading processes.
SIPPS can be used with small groups of students as Tier 2 or Tier 3 intervention. The scope and sequence of SIPPS is aligned with Being a Reader instruction (Sets 1–5), which facilitates students’ movement between the two programs.
