Publisher's Description

The phonics book for teachers. Comprehensive information is given here for every spelling of every sound. For each spelling you will find rules which govern it, exceptions to the rules, sample words to use for teaching the sound or spelling, etymological information, and more. Each sound is keyed to the Phonics Made Plain flash cards and chart by Michael Brunner. The appendix also contains an excellent article concerning reading problems of the older student or adult.

Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights

Have you ever wondered why some words don't follow typical phonics rules or how many words fall under a particular rule? Why do words like "have" and "live" end with an e but have short or unstressed vowel sounds? Why are the same letter combinations sometimes pronounced differently? This book gave me all the foundational basics I needed to teach phonics and spelling like an expert. I once was told that I couldn't teach pure phonics because there were too many words that didn't follow the rules. With this book, I discovered that there are very few "rule breakers," just words that follow different rules. It offers an in-depth explanation for each rule, the language the rule originates from, word lists, and a count for how many words follow that particular rule. Essential for anyone who wants to teach phonics and spelling with complete confidence. 342 pages, hardcover from Mott Media. -- Cherrié
