Product Description

Alpha-Phonics is an effective, step-by-step program that has taught countless homeschooled children to read, including older struggling readers, dyslexic students, and others. As a stand-alone program or supplement, Alpha-Phonics' systematic phonetic approach will help students build a logical framework for English reading.

Students begin by learning short vowels and consonants, before moving on to consonant blends that teach final blends first, and then initial blends. Finally, students learn long vowels along with the many forms in which they occur. Moving from simple to complex through practice and drill exercises, students will build competency and skill, increasing self-confidence.

The alphabet is taught visually and orally through having children repeat the letters as the teacher points to them, as well as through the integration of kinesthetic activities. The black-and-white hand-lettered pages are designed to teach children with minimal distraction.

A scripted example lesson provides a format and example for teachers to follow as the work their way through the lesson; short lesson instructions (approximately 1-7 sentences) are provided for each lesson in the back. An order of lessons, list of common English spelling forms, and pre-reading alphabet exercises are also included. 168 pages, comb-binding, softcover with plastic-protector cover. Grade K & up. The included CD-ROM edition of Samuel Blumenfeld's Alpha Phonics: A Primer for Beginning Readers combines every aspect of Alpha Phonics with the advantages of a computer-based course. Each of the 128 lessons in the book are reproduced on the CD-ROM exactly as they appear in the book; both spoken and printed instructions are included, and lessons do not require use of the keyboard-just the mouse! A Teacher/Student screen includes a sidebar for navigation and instructions and allows you to go to any lesson in the program; Student screens feature the lesson in extra large type without any distractions.

System Requirements:

  • Windows 95-XP, 7, 8
  • Pentium 90/32 Mg
  • 800 x 600 resolution
  • 8 MB RAM
  • CD-ROM, Sound Card, Monitor set to 256 colors or higher.
