Product Description:

Time for your "eyerobic" exercises! This phonics supplement from the author of Phonics Pathways is designed to strengthen eye tracking skills, a necessary component of fluent reading. Exercises are one of two types. The first type helps students sound out words one letter at a time, as successive letters are added. The name of the book comes from the second type of exercise, which is contained in a pyramid shape. At the top of the pyramid is one word. The next line contains the word in the first line, then adds another word. This pattern continues down the pyramid, with each line adding one or more words. The idea is to show that letters build into syllables, syllables build into words, words build into phrases, and phrases build into sentences. Students need to know their letters, consonant sounds, and short-vowel sounds to begin using the book. By the end of the book, students are reading multi-syllable, long-vowel words in sentences up to 20 words long.

Does this book replace the old "Pyramid" book by Mrs. Hiskes? In Phonics Pathways, she refers to purchasing Pyramid for extra reading practice with her pyramid method. The description of this product indicates that this has replaced the other book (which is available on amazon only in the used section). Thank you so much!

BEST ANSWER: Yes, this book replaces the old "Pyramid" book and is, in fact, almost identical to that older book referenced in the Phonics Pathways manual.

I really like how this book helps with teaching reading. I've been homeschooling for 10 years and went through the process of teaching reading twice already. I decided to do something different this time and got this book. It's been a hit. It's easy to use, fun and it works. I'm definitely happy with it and my son is too.

I love this product! I teach my son who has Down Syndrome and although he reads fairly well he tends to skip over words I bought this book a couple months ago and now we start each reading lesson with a section from this book It takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete each daily Pathways lesson and that just seems to start his reading off the right way He's definitely skipping less words and paying better attention to his reading This is a great warm up to reading and because my son is a sight reader this also gives him a good phonics exposure After we finish this book I plan on trying Phonics Pathways as well
