Great program!
This is a terrific curriculum! My ASD daughter has Central Auditory Processing Disorder & Dyslexia. She is 12 and we have spent $1000's of dollars on curriculum that never helped her learn to read. I was skeptical when I heard about these cheaply priced books, but I thought what they heck they're cheap enough. We have started with book 1. This is a straight forward, simple, no frills, black & white program.......BUT IT'S WORKING!!!!! She's slowly learning to read with this program. I love it! It's awesome! I highly recommend it! Did I mention that I love it?

Amazing books!!!
I am purchasing this book for the fourth time. I have used these books since I started homeschooling my oldest son, now 15. I have used them along side Hooked on Phonics. My 3 oldest children began reading at late age 4 to early age 5 and was reading 2nd grade level books (BJU) in the 1st grade. My youngest will be 5 in a couple of months and she is starting to read 2-3 letter words. We have just finished the Primer level A,B, &C. She loves them, as did all the older ones (they still remember them) and especially mom. They seem simple but are challenging at the time and really build their confidence. We do all the pages in each book. I did not use the 1/2 books. Children just took off reading. These are the best way to teach reading. Children's ages now (15,12,9,4)

Great Reading Program
I've used this program for two children so far. One started with the preface to this series, Get Ready, Get Set, and Go for the Code, and the other jumped right in here. I use this book at Kindergarten level. The workbooks keep my children engaged daily in learning to read, building each week on what they have already learned. You can go at your own pace with these. I take one lesson and stretch it out over the course of a week. I purchased the teacher's manual because I prefer to be told what and how to teach, but you wouldn't necessarily need it at this level if you like to plan your own lessons.

Great series of books! My 5-year-old kindergarten daughter finished books 1 and 2 before the end of the school year. Along with The Reading Lesson, these books helped teach her to read! These books have a repeating format that allowed DD to do a lot of work independently. I look forward to using upper level books in the future! Great resource!

Like it with reservations
I am using this and I really like it. However I do not use the pick the right sentence pages or all of the spelling pages. They are too overwhelming. In addition to this I make up CVC word lists for my son to read along with 1 or 2 sentences that he would find amusing. We also read a Bob book 2-3 times a week and do Orton gillianham flash cards.
February 3, 2016
repetitive, but engaging
My five year old is diving into this book and thoroughly enjoys it. The activities repeat with each letter sound, but there is a good variety of exercises and it combines reading with writing practice. I did not get the teacher guide.

Are the teacher guides for 1-8 really necessary or are the workbooks enough on their own?
User on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unless you are very new to teaching phonics, I'd skip them. I got them and never even opened them, the workbooks are very self explanatory.
