The Ants in the Apple Literacy Program is an integrated phonemic awareness, spelling, reading, grammar, handwriting and comprehension program.

The Program has a strong emphasis on phonics and phonemic awareness, and it views spelling as the core concept of a solid literacy program. The 'Ants' literacy program provides a 240 week scope and sequence for the teaching of spelling (according to different types of word structures) and expects students to master each skill before moving on to the next task in the teaching sequence.
