Product Description:

Part of the Child1st series of child-friendly language arts materials specifically designed for right-brain learners. However, this little manual (possibly along with the Sound Spelling Teaching Cards) could be incorporated into any language arts program. The 128 page manual provides much more than you might expect. The Teaching Notes for 128 lessons takes the student through 55 Units that cover 193 distinct sound spelling patterns as well as past tense spellings, plural spellings, homophones, double consonants, and 32 suffixes. The basic idea is to read and spell all the sounds that are the basic building blocks of all words. Lessons are designed to be self-paced and are easily adapted for differentiated instruction. A sound is presented weekly, reviewed for 10-15 minutes on each of the next 3 days, then an assessment on the 5th day. One sound is taught at a time but all the ways to spell that sound are also taught at that same time. Target sounds are color-coded in each lesson. Daily practice involves a whiteboard and markers. Fingermapping (using the fingers to build a visual representation of the sounds in a word) is also part of the instruction. The accompanying CD provides printable Unit Activity Sheets, Teaching Notes, and Tracking Sheets. Although this book can be used by itself it also coordinates with the Sound Spelling Teaching Cards. 128 pgs, pb ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

Is your child a struggling reader? Is spelling hard for her? Does he have trouble sounding out larger words? You have come to the right place! The Illustrated Book of Sounds & Their Spelling Patterns will take the mystery out of words! Children who can't memorize will benefit from this approach to teaching phonics concepts, spelling, and sounds that require multiple letters. The book is entertaining, full of cartoons that help to drive the lessons home, and is funny. The book is leveled as to difficulty, starting at zero and moving clear through to the most advanced sound spellings in our language. This approach has worked to bring children up to grade level in reading very quickly.

How It Works:

A finite number of sounds make up all the words in the English language. With The Illustrated Book of Sounds & Their Spelling Patterns, students learn to read/spell those sounds that are the building blocks of all words.

This book will guide you through how to teachvowels and consonants with all their many spellings. The way the book is organized will make it easy for your students to focus in on specificsounds, where they appear in words, and how to spell them. Equipped withthis knowledge, students will be able to decode larger and harder words.

The Illustrated Book of Sounds & Their Spelling Patterns replaces ineffective memorization of word spellings, phonics rules, or decoding, with kid-friendly, brain-friendlypatterns and visuals. Students are engaged in listening to sounds, finding patterns, and learning through cartoons and story bytes. The Illustrated Book of Sounds & Their Spelling Patterns demystifies reading by giving students the tools they need to decode unknown, difficult words with ease.

NEW to this edition, detailed teaching notes will guide you through exactly how to teach each reproducible lesson. Included is a CD of all lessons so you can easily print and teach.

Category Description for Easy-for-Me Reading:

Child1st has a mission teaching reading to the children who are picture thinkers and global thinkers. These children right-brain learners, autistic, aspergers, and dyslexics often fall through the cracks of traditional phonics instruction. They find it impossible to remember the phonograms and fail to see how they work together to make sense. The creative work of Sarah Major, M.Ed., Child1st materials are colorful, easy-to-use, clever, well-constructed, and (may I say) addictivenot to mentionoffer great flexibility. What sets this program apart is the combination of phonics instruction with a stronger-than-usual emphasis on learning sight words, adding both a story element as well as a solid kinesthetic element. Letters, phonograms, and sight words each have their own "story" complete with stylized letters or words that bring the story to mind. Hand and body motions cement the learning connection. In other words, all the needed elements combine to bring about meaningful reading success for picture-thinkers and right brain learners. They get it! And, they remember it!

There are a number of products from this publisher all with the above educational mission. These products can be used in all sorts of combinations and offer a great deal of flexibility. You can use the Grade Level Kits as complete reading and language arts programs or use just one portion for a particular purpose (for instance, the SnapWords sight word program or the Illustrated Book of Sounds & Their Spelling Patterns). You could start with Alphabet Tales (to get a taste for the program) for learning the letters and their sounds. Then continue with SnapWords sets and/or the Easy-for-Me Readers. Both of these have their own teaching instructions. But if you want that next level of completeness and cohesiveness, then use the Grade Level Kits that combine all of the above elements with a teaching manual for comprehensive instructive material plus LOTS of reproducible activity sheets. The Grade Level Kits actually provide introductory language arts so they fit into the "complete language arts" category. While the materials may seem a bit pricey, they are all high-quality and well-done and the instruction is easy to follow and research-based. ~ Janice

Easy-for-Me ?Childrens Readers are a parallel program to SnapWords ? and another sequel to Alphabet Tales. These provide the phonics aspects of this approach to reading. Each book includes a two-page set of teacher instructions straight-forward, easy to follow and to do. These instructions include "before you read," "sounds/phonics," "sight words," and "follow-up activities," etc. They are designed to help you keep track of what has been learned so far. Comprehension questions are included with Set C. The set of instructions in each little book builds on the previous book and then builds set by set. These may seem a little pricey but there are 22-24 books in each set; each with pleasant, colorful artwork and solid stories. ~ Janice

Do you do more than just highlight words; do you feel that this is logically/thoughtfully organized?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the lessons involve more than just highlighting words (including a process called finger-mapping) although highlighting sound patterns are a major activity of the worksheets. Yes, we do feel it is logically/thoughtfully organized - in fact, very much so. Here is additional material on the process.

The Teaching Notes for 128 lessons takes the student through 55 Units that cover 193 distinct sound spelling patterns as well as past tense spellings, plural spellings, homophones, double consonants, and 32 suffixes. The basic idea is to read and spell all the sounds that are the basic building blocks of all words. Lessons are designed to be self-paced and are easily adapted for differentiated instruction.

One sound is taught at a time but all the ways to spell that sound are also taught at that same time. Target sounds are color-coded in each lesson. Daily practice involves a whiteboard and markers. Fingermapping (using the fingers to build a visual representation of the sounds in a word) is also part of the instruction. The accompanying CD provides printable Unit Activity Sheets, Teaching Notes, and Tracking Sheets.
