Zoo-phonics ®

Zoo-phonics ® is the curriculum that we use for the basis of our language arts instruction.  Zoo-phonics ® is a method developed to make children strong readers and spellers using a "phono" (hearing), "oral" (speaking), "visual" (seeing), "kinesthetic" (moving), and tactile (touching) whole-brain approach.

Zoo-phonics ® uses animals drawn in the shapes of letters for ease of memory.  A related body movement is given for each letter.  This concrete approach cements the sounds to the shapes of the letters.  The program is a fun and kinesthetic approach to learning the alphabet, letter sounds, and much more!

Many public, private, and charter schools utilize the Zoo-phonics ® program.  Therefore, our academy graduates are well prepared.  The sequence of introduction is demonstrated below.

  1. “Recently (my son) attended his Kindergarten Open House and received the list of “things your children should be able to do prior to entering kindergarten.” I was shocked at how far advanced the curriculum at AppleTree has prepared him!”
    – Emma Powell, AppleTree Parent

  2. “AppleTree has not only provided an age-appropriate education with ample opportunity for challenge, but also a safe, caring, and compassionate community for which our daughter feels strongly a part of”
    – Jennifer Cole, AppleTree Parent
