Category Description for Victory Drill Book:

This reading reinforcement resource has been around for over 30 years, and in use around our house for at least 20! Regardless of the reading program you use, this helpful tool will ensure that your students are progressing in their reading speed through an eighth-grade reading level. Although a abbreviated lists of phonics and spelling rules are provided, most of the book is devoted to word lists. Several columns of words are listed on a page, grouped by a common phonetic construct. The student reads the words while being timed. Words read per minute tell you at what grade level the child is reading according to the followin (no longer included in the book):

  • Pre-K (20 words)
  • K (30 words)
  • Grade 1 (40 words)
  • Grade 2 (55 words)
  • Grade 3 (70 words)
  • Grade 4 (85 words)
  • Grade 5 (100 words)
  • Grade 6 (115 words)
  • Grade 7 (130 words)
  • Grade 8 (130 words)
  • The idea is to have the child repeat the drill every day until she is reading at or beyond grade level. This can be pretty challenging, especially at the onset of reading. Occasional review pages combine words with similar constructs, and pages with paragraphs for practice reading are also included.

    We have found this to be a most useful vehicle for taking the children from decoding to reading. Until a child is able to decode words at some level of speed, it is difficult to have them read for meaning. By the time they reach the end of even a short sentence, the meaning may be lost. Not always enjoyable, some skills just require practice, practice, practice! A child just beginning to read may need to start out with just a column or two per page as an entire page may be too taxing. The print is large and easy to read. Drills only take a minute or two, but will greatly help the young reader sharpen her decoding skills.

    The phonics worksheets (150 pages) are a good supplement. The sheets include page numbers that correspond to the page on which the phonics skill is practiced in the Victory Drill Book.

    The Victory Pre-Drill Book is for use by beginning students. It provides high-speed practice of the alphabet and correct pronunciation of phonetic letters and letter combinations before students proceed to the Victory Drill Book. The newly revised (now spiral-bound) VDB Teacher's Guide provides direction for page-by-page use of the Victory Drill Book. It presents a sequential presentation of phonetic instruction corresponding to the Victory Drill Book sequence. A CD is also available to help both you and your student hear the correct phonetic sounds of letters and letter combinations. The CD corresponds to the presentation of sounds in the Victory Drill Book.

    I have several struggling readers in my grade 3 class. I used the Victory Drill book as a child to learn to read, so I thought this would help my students too.

    Victory Drill is how I learned to read, and it served me well. I taught my first 3 children from my book and they are wonderful readers. Wanted an updated copy for my 4th child.

    You have so many kinds of victory drill books. What would be the best one for me to use on my Kindergarten students?
    A shopper on Aug 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Item #000111 is THE Victory Drill Book - all other material is either supplementary (worksheets and CD) or helpful (#002044 - teacher guide). There are two levels of worksheets - pre-drill (i.e. before using the VDB - #002043) or regular (#003824). These provide additional reinforcement. The CD (#035408) is for hearing the phonogram and word sounds. With Kindergartners, you might start with the Pre-Drill Worksheets and then/or begin slowly through the Drill Book.
