Product Description

In only twenty-to-thirty minutes a day, you can have your preschoolers and non-reading elementary-aged children at a second-grade reading level within 100 days. A complete, step-by-step program, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons includes everything parents need; using the DISTAR method, lessons follow a sensible, simple plan that doesn't require complicated planning or difficult add-on activities. Building from simple exercises that cover sound identification, decoding words and sentences, irregulars, and more, lessons slowly build to more challenging tasks; vocabulary, examples, and the teacher's aspect of the lesson are carefully controlled to help children comfortably progress to a fluent level. Lessons are fully scripted with teacher instruction integrated into the examples and demonstrations. 395 pages, softcover.

This program can be used for bright 3-year olds, on-track 4 and 5 year olds, and non-reading elementary students, but is not recommended for struggling readers who make mistakes.

Editorial Reviews

"School boards should be pressured as much as possible to teach reading via the Direct Instruction method of phonics. And if they won’t, there’s what I call the magical book: Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, by Englemann with Phyllis Haddox and Elaine Bruner. I’ve seen this method work in my own home, having used it with both of my children and watched that light go on." —John McWhorter, The New York Times
