Saxon Kindergarten Phonics
The Saxon Homeschool Phonics series is unique because the entire program builds on prior learning. New learning is presented in explicit, systematic increments, and each increment is reviewed throughout the year. Also, the program lessons are completely scripted making it easy and simple for parents to teach.
The program teaches students to read by introducing them to language in small increments. Students are taught to "code" words by identifying the sound each letter/letter cluster makes, thus enabling them to read and, eventually, to spell those words. Throughout the program, a controlled vocabulary is used, which means that students are only exposed to words containing those letters, letter clusters and sounds that have been taught. This ensures that students will experience continued success as they learn to read.
