Cracking the Code

How the Secret Stories® Method Works

An Approach to Teaching Reading that Kids Want to Learn


Secret Stories® is a brain based approach to traditional phonics instruction that accelerates learner access to the reading and writing code. Secret Stories® provides the logical explanations for letter sound behavior that learners brains crave. These logical explanations are shared in the form of “secret” stories, which are the secret reasons WHY letters make all of the crazy sounds that they do when they get together in words. The “Secrets” work seamlessly with any reading series or phonics program, fitting snugly between the teaching of reading and writing.

Reading 360° is a comprehensive approach that will provide optional grants and resources to help more
Tennessee students develop strong phonics-based reading
skills by supporting districts, teachers, and families.  MSCS teachers attended summer training for Reading 360 and we are excited to implement this reading supplemental into our classroom.
