Making Sense of Language Arts is a multi-sensory approach to teaching children to read and write. The program was developed by Linda Wihl who has been championing early childhood literacy for 30 years. Children who enter kindergarten with below-average language arts skills consistently leave with average or better skills and reading simple words!
