All phonics lessons begin here. Children learn all of the
letter sounds and their corresponding letter shapes required to master reading
as well as spelling and keyboarding skills.
Letter Sounds Selection
Over the 100 lessons 61 phonics letter sounds are systematically introduced
Spelling Letter Sounds
Learn keyboarding skills by typing sounds, words and complete sentences.
Next, letter sounds are systematically blended into
beginning, middle and ending sounds in words. Letter sounds are then used in
word blending exercises teaching how to decode individual sounds and combine
them to create words.
Beginning, Middle and Ending Sounds in Words
Your child will learn which letter, from a set of letters shown, matches the beginning, middle, or ending sound in 188 presentations of these recited words.
Your child will learn how to blend separate sounds together to form the sound of these 357 individual words.
The Reading Zone uses the letter sounds and word
blends previously learned forming new words and builds the ability to read
complete English sentences and short stories with ease. The story reading
exercise contains the equivalent of dozens of children's early reading books.
Progressively over the 100 lessons the following exercises are presented:
Learn to read the most commonly used words in the English language, also
referred to as "high frequency sight words."
Spelling Sight Words
Learn to read and spell words from the Sight Words exercise using the keyboard.
Word families are groups of words that are closely related enough to form a
'family'. Learn hundreds of words belonging to dozens of word families.
Learn the most commonly used word endings such as "s", "ed", "ing", "y", and more.
Silent E Rule
Learn how to identify words that contain a "silent e" and learn their proper pronunciation.
Learn to read and construct sentences using nearly 400 different words.
Learn to read and spell complete sentences using the keyboard.
Children learn the meaning of prefixes, how to use them and definitions of the
words they are used with. Examples of the many prefixes taught are "pre",
"re", "sub", "dis" and "non."
Children learn the meaning of suffixes, how to use them and definitions of the
words they are used with. Examples of the many suffixes taught are "ful",
"less", "ure", "ive" and "ion."
Children view and read along. The short stories include letter sounds, words
and other elements previously taught. From single sentence to multiple sentence
stories, equaling a small library of early reading books.
This exercise builds the automatic decoding skills
needed to master reading. The final exercise in every lesson is the Speed
Zone, where all letter sounds and words taught from prior lessons are
reviewed and practiced.
