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.

The front of this book contains the hand-printed lists of words, without commentary. A section with short lesson instructions (approximately 1-7 sentences) is 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. 171 pages, softcover. Grade K & up.

            How to Tutor will help homeschooling parents to thoroughly teach the "Three R's" through step-by-step lesson plans. Reading lessons (117), Writing lessons (73), and Arithmetic lessons (67) provides a straight forward backbone that will serve students throughout the remainder of their education. Sections begin with simple advice on how to tutor children, procedures for teaching, and other practical considerations; lessons speak directly to the teacher and provide direction (what to write, what to ask the children, background information on what the student is learning through the activity, etc.) to best teach the concept at hand. Examples and problems are integrated into each lesson. One PDF on CD-ROM.

            This workbook accompanies the sold-separately How to Tutor. Providing a larger-type version of the words taught in the teacher book, students have their own lesson book to work in while the teacher uses their textbook. The words for the students to sound out are arranged by lesson. This book contains only the words and sentences that the teacher would have wanted students to read, demonstrating understanding of the lesson being taught; there are no additional, separate exercises in this workbook. 175 pages, comb-bound paperback with plastic-protector covers. 8.5" x 11".
