This course is for parents with a desire to take the initiative in helping a child learn to read. There are no pretty pictures or fun games here. You must work hard and expect your child to work hard. The rewards are immeasurable as you watch your child learn to read!
Children will learn 70 phonograms and associated sounds over 18 lessons. They will understand that words are made up of parts that are easily sounded out once known. As the reader continues to practice, fluency will increase.
Supplemental materials include
·A checklist to track learned phonograms
·Phonogram flash cards
·Phonograms in mp3 format
·Practice files for use with WinFlash
·Suggested resources to be used for practice
·Phonogram Master certificate
·ZIP file of the CD that led to this course
As mentioned, the course will include 18 lessons. Each lesson typically includes:
·4 new phonograms with associated sounds
·Sample words sounded out using the phonograms learned so far
·A list of phonograms learned so far
There will also be lessons on sounding out words, reading strategies and the FIVE reasons for silent final e. The latter is one of my favorites.
After using the phonograms to teach 1st Grade, teach my own children and tutor third graders, I’m convinced all children should know the phonograms in order to understand our language more fully. This course is an excellent way for parents to help their children do this. Children who know the phonograms learn to read, think, spell and experience success. And you get to be part of that wonderful journey!
Who this course is for:
- Parents who have a desire to teach their children to read
- Parents of struggling readers
After spending five years in the Air Force, I entered Emporia State University, where I earned my teaching degree. I taught five years of first grade and then one of fourth and one of fifth. It was during this time I learned the power of the phonograms.
After teaching I transitioned into the I.T. world. With the skills I learned there I created a reading program on CD that I've sold on eBay for many years.
I have three children, all of whom I taught to read using the phonograms. They are all very successful in school and I believe a big part of that was their reading ability. My children's ages are 21, 18 and 6. The last one served to absolutely confirm my belief in the power of the phonograms. She is in first grade and reading well above grade level.
It has been quite a journey, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!
