Revised by Frances Bloom and Nina Traub, this manual contains a series of structured lessons that cover the entire Recipe for Reading sequence. The material is presented in a flexible format, allowing teachers to differentiate instruction depending on the specific needs of their students. Each lesson contains kinesthetic handwriting cues, phonological awareness and fluency activities, and words, phrases, and sentences for reading and dictation.
The revised manual features additional phonological awareness exercises in the introductions to each new sound; a new section, For Fun and Practice, in each lesson; and references to the workbook pages and The Alphabet Series storybook that correspond to the lesson. The Focus on Sound appendix from the previous edition has also been integrated into the main lessons. The glossary has also been expanded. Skills have been realigned to accommodate Vol. 2 of the Alphabet Series and the new workbooks.
255 pages, indexed, spiral-bound, softcover.

ShelleyVirginiaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5An excellent remedial reading programApril 19, 2012ShelleyVirginiaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This reading program is based on the Orton-Gillingham method which is the gold standard for dyslexic children. It is an excellent value compared to many other programs out there. It is teacher intensive as others have stated but that is the design of teaching a struggling reader. I am using this with 2 dyslexic children and I have seen great progress in a short period of time. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to use an O-G based program as it is very reasonably priced.
phonicsmomTexasAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent, affordable multisensory resourceNovember 20, 2011phonicsmomTexasAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I use this program to teach my dyslexic 2nd grader and my kinder. I made the posters recommended for the little red house, drum, and ball. My children had no problem understanding these concepts and we were able to reference them as visual cues after the first day. I also purchased the alphabet readers and workbooks that go with the program. I will admit that the program is a bit teacher intensive, but that is to be expected with any multisensory phonics program. If you compare it with the expense of others on the market, it is a wonderful value. We use the program with individual whiteboards and touchphonics foam letters, especially for the dictation exercises. My 2nd grader has gone from a 1.8 reading level to a 3 in 4months. My 5yr old is learning to read very quickly. I highly recommend if you don't mind putting in some effort.

Sonya Haskins3 Stars Out Of 5September 21, 2010Sonya HaskinsThis book is definitely meant for public school teachers. I say this because it spends the first several pages discussing the national concern about poor reading skills, the research base for the book (classroom teachers), methodology, etc. It's information most of already know or don't need to know.There are a few good things about the book. I really like the fact that it gives specific tips in the letter sections for "auditory-visual" learners, although sometimes I think they're confused about which learner is which! For example, under letter j, teachers are asked to spread jam on paper plates and have students trace the letter j with their finger in the jam. That's more kinesthetic, not auditory-visual (as stated). Also, there so many more activities they COULD have mentioned (but they don't) for different types of learners.Later, students learn how to "decode" sentences rather than "read" them...Overall, I just think they are making it much more complicated than it needs to be. When talking about writing the letters, rather than using the "top, bottom and middle" lines as we did when we were learning to write, they have this whole complicated system of "the little red house." The top line is the attic; the bottom line is the basement, but sometimes you go into the basement stairs (like with a p or a j)... Goodness. You could spend a month just trying to tell your child how to use the "house" lines!I gave it three stars only because you CAN use the book to teach a child to read. Some of the information at the beginning of the book can be useful for teachers, but overall, I'd say stick to something like Bob Books; Reader Rabbit phonics; Sing, Spell, Read and Write, or some other terrific phonics program. This one is just too complicated. Sonya Haskins, author of Homeschooling for the Rest of Us (Bethany House, 2010)
