This is the most comprehensive and best language arts program on the market Phonics spelling and grammar all in one book for all of elementary school! I taught three children to read with this book It can be a bit overwhelming at first and it is helpful to contact someone who has used the program for questions The book is laid out for a school setting but is easily adapted to a home school You do not need to spend as many hours a day as she recommends since you have fewer students I have found nothing to compare this program with she makes the English language easy to understand and learn!

The Writing Road to Reading (WRTR) is an amazing method It is based on the research done by Dr Samuel Orton beginning in the 1920's His research delved into the how and why of learning to read and the difficulties some children experience His results were nothing short of astonishing He discovered how all children can learn successfully His method used all the modalities: visual auditory kinestic and tactile Romalda Spalding a teacher worked with him for approximately two years She developed the Spalding Method based on his research and his direction The Spalding Method is laid out in full in the WRTR This program is a K-8 complete curriculum The cost is amazingly low while the benefits are amazingly great I am teaching three of my children this method; two have started this method at the beginning of their school career the other began at age 10 Although the 10 year old did not have difficulties with language the method greatly benefited her logical reasoning when reading and spelling It also greatly improved her cursive handwriting My second child was destined to have learning difficulties; he exhibited all the signs He now is meeting all his milestones I am currently working on a MEd in Curriculum Development The research that others and I have done on language arts curricula demonstrate that methods based on Dr Samuel Orton's work are superior to all others The Spalding Method written by a teacher is far easier to teach and more logical for the students than all the curricula I have reviewed People who are interested in notes that help with this method can go to my website at wwwshalomranchorg Look for the WRTR icon and then "notes" This is a free service

Came highly recommended by another home school mom. It has been great for my second grader who never quite grasped phonics before trying this.

I loaned my book to my son for his new additions to his family. The kids didn't know how to read and he felt this book would be as instrumental for them as it was for him when I successfully homeschooled him and taught him how to read, write legibly, and understand what he read. My son, read at a 1st grade level when I started and three months later he was reading at grade level. Three years later, he tested at college level! Did I mention the kids are reading? Well, they are!

What are the sounds of the letter y?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I teach the y sound as in yet, short i sound as in gym, long i sound as in my, and the long e sound as in baby. The long e sound is not on Spalding's card, but it is used in American English, so it should be included.
