Welcome to SEEL! Our website is aimed at helping both teachers and parents teach children early literacy skills. The site furnishes early literacy lesson plans based on research done by faculty and students of Brigham Young University. These lesson plans are free resources for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and soon-to-come first grade teachers. If you are new to the site, please take note of our easy access links to time-saving resources:

Teaching kids how to read.
The Hideout app uses the SEEL principles to teach kids how to read through a series of fun activities that emphasize letter-sound association and word repetition. The app currently only utilizes three word targets, but it is a lot of fun. More literacy targets are soon to come in the next version of the app!
