  1. Dr. Feifer,
    I was recently at one of your trainings in Texas. I wanted to know what you recommended to post in the classroom for Cvc words. I am an RTI teacher. You mentioned something about vowel letters in red.

  2. Hi Jeremy,

    I seem to recall you mentioning in a recent podcast episode that there is now a quiz associated with your podcasts to assist with claiming continuing education hours. Where is the accessed?

    Thanks for your help!
