The Edison Local School District is a participant district in Ohio’s Early Literacy Pilot.  For the past three years, all teachers in grades Pre-K-3rd have gone through intensive professional learning on the science of reading utilizing LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling).  The teachers are providing explicit instructional practices based on the science of reading. With the school closure continuing for the remainder of the school year, the district would like to provide some tutorial videos to assist parents/caregivers with some strategies that are aligned with the science of reading.  These short videos will provide parents/caregivers with a short explanation of the strategy as well as modeling of what the strategy looks like in practice.  

The first video, titled Tap It-Map It, is a strategy designed to build the basic phonemic awareness skills of segmenting and blending.  

If you have any questions about a particular video or questions in general please feel free to reach out to me.  My email is

As we all continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Thank you,
