Product Description:

This intensive multisensory phonics program uses a phonogram approach similar to The Writing Road to Reading. This book, authored by Bonnie Dettmer, is very simple to use, with clear directions for the teacher. Beginning with the 26 alphabet phonograms, all 72 basic phonograms (symbols for sounds) are taught. It also incorporates handwriting and spelling, and reinforces the phonograms as they are taught. Handwriting begins with the teaching of the letter sounds. Spelling instruction begins after the first 52 phonograms are introduced. Gradually, other language skills are added, such as writing complete sentences, adding affixes to words, and making contractions. Reading is introduced after students can construct original sentences. The program, encased in a sturdy three-ring binder, includes a set of basic phonogram cards, a CD containing the phonogram sounds, and the Spelling Scale for Home Educators.

Category Description for Phonics for Reading and Spelling:

An intensive, multisensory phonics program, using a phonogram approach similar to The Writing Road to Reading. The main flaw we find in WRR is the difficulty homeschoolers find in implementing it without additional instructional materials that can be difficult to obtain. This book, authored by Bonnie Dettmer, is very simple to use, with clear directions for the teacher. Beginning with the 26 alphabet phonograms, all 72 basic phonograms (symbols for sounds) are taught. It incorporates handwriting and spelling also, reinforcing the phonograms as they are taught. Handwriting begins with the teaching of the letter sounds. Spelling instruction begins after the first 52 phonograms are introduced. Gradually, other language skills are added, such as writing complete sentences, adding affixes to words, and contractions. Reading is introduced only after students are able to construct original sentences. The program, encased in a sturdy three-ring binder, includes a set of basic phonogram cards, a CD containing the phonogram sounds, and the Spelling Scale For Home Educators. Each of these can also be purchased separately.

I plan on using this program with my 1st grader to help him learn what he didn't in public school Kindergarten.

Want to build a strong reader in your child? Here you go! This program covers K through 6th grades but can be modified as you need to The large binder holds a great intro for the teacher detailed info about our language 72 phonogram cards a section with flowcharts for teaching the various levels and even includes one entitled Special Situations You will also find a spelling word list to take them through high school I believe and spelling rules for the English language Bonnie Dettmer did her homework here It is very comprehensive divided for teaching ease and gives mom sections about reference charts and teaching reading It goes beyond anything I received in public and private schooling as a child There is more included but the basic idea with this program is for the child to learn our language from breaking it into the 72 phonograms that create English words NOT just the few they get in school on flashcards Many phonograms make several (up to SIX) sounds This author has captured those and simplifies them for you The child learns the sounds each one makes IN THE ORDER of most common usage As they learn to sound words they will instinctively try the sounds in that order and say the word correctly more quickly The first time my young son read the word enough he was able to read it right Mom learns to underline and mark the phonograms until the child can pick them out on their own I marked favorite books etc Soon you will not have to mark any of them You also get a Basic Phonogram Tape (CD also available) for the phonogram cards This tape is for mom and student to listen to together until you learn them - maybe a week or so You will soon be doing other things and just listening to your child recite them by the flashcards When I used these with my first child it seemed like a lot to have to learn He did not read well during his first grade year - but we kept it up I was betting that it was just more than most kids have to internalize and that it would take longer so we hung in there When he was tested at the end of SECOND grade his reading was on a FOURTH grade level! His comprehension level was high and he was scoring into the college levels by sixth grade! (Paid testing at a homeschool group using the Woodcock-Johnson III) My only reservation about this program is the method they include to teach handwriting I feel like it is very complicated I had already begun something else with my son so I did not use theirs You will also take a look at the book and think that it is too hard Look closer Read the teacher sections prepared throughout the binder and you will see that it is just thorough not difficult When I am finished homeschooling my children I plan to teach illiterate adults to read using this program!
