Product Description:

Phonics instruction integrated with Bible stories and verses. Is a well-done program with these characteristics exactly what you're looking for? Master Books has introduced an easy-to-use program with straight-forward lessons and little prep for the teacher. Starting with letter recognition it proceeds through short vowels, long vowels, and some digraphs. Both letter sounds and printing letter strokes are taught.

Organization is not typical (N, D, A, T, S, P). The accompanying narratives are in biblical chronological order, however. Daily lessons introduce letters with a biblical narrative (N is for nothing, none, not even a bit! Genesis 1:1-2) and a Bible verse. The lesson/narrative is scripted for the teacher and includes questions for the student, finger tracing, listening, identifying words with the letter sound, and reading practice followed by a worksheet for the student to complete. Bonus (optional) activities are provided to use as needed and time permits. Introductory material for the teacher includes general instruction, a writing readiness assessment, sight words for each lesson, helpful hints for teaching the lessons, a materials list, a daily lesson schedule (5 days a week for 18 weeks), and a progress chart. There are periodic reviews.

This is a one semester course for either Kindergarten or First Grade. It seems like the publisher may be planning a sequel but if not this is an excellent standalone and will get your student off to a good start. ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

Though many parents think teaching their child reading will be daunting, it doesn't have to be! You're already teaching your child important things every day, and with Foundations Phonics, you'll have all of the help you need to do that with reading, as well.

You don't even have to spend time planning because we've already done that work for you. This phonics program features easy-to-use lessons and a schedule. Foundations Phonics requires just three 20-30 minute lessons each week for 18 weeks and relies on common household items (like crayons, rice, and play-dough). This simple, practical approach not only saves you time but it also appeals to children and is designed for kids with a wide range of learning styles.

Even better, this flexible program does not require children to be ready to write to learn to read, as most other phonics programs do. There are separate worksheets for children who are ready to write, but it also includes activities and coloring sheets for those who aren't quite ready to start writing. For that reason, this program is also flexible enough for use with either kindergarteners or 1st graders. If your 5 or 6-year-old is ready to start reading, you're ready for Foundations Phonics!

All of this plus this program is firmly rooted in the Bible, with each lesson tied to a Christ-centered concept. By the end, your child will know phonics and also the Gospel"from Creation to the Resurrection.

  • Teaches phonics and the Bible
  • Flexible and easy-to-use
  • Engages children with its emphasis on play-based learning
  • Follow up with the upcoming Basic Language Skills course for a complete one-year course

My 5 year old wants to do school like big brother and sister and very much wants to learn to read. I've been impressed with other Master Books products and my kids have enjoyed them. I'm looking forward to using this with my daughter.

This has a bible basis and great ideas for letter learning and sound reinforcement. I plan to use this as a supplement to another phonics program.

Does this come in color? When I look at the samples on Masterbooks website its in color, but this one appears to have pages that are only in black and white.
