Phonics First Steps, Set 3by Jennifer Liberts Weinberg
Research shows that early instruction in phonics is the first step to reading success. Now Step into Reading is introducing a fun and comprehensive, educationally based phonics program designed to help kids learn to read, step by step! Developed by a phonics expert, each box includes eight brief books that cover a specific range of phonic skills. The boxed sets build on each other, and book by book, skills are reviewed and reinforced as new ones are introduced--giving kids the tools they need to crack the code of letters and sounds.
A sample of featured skills:
* more digraphs (or two-letter blends that form a single sound) like bl-,
qu-, and cr-
* additional two-letter phonograms (word parts) like -nk, -ck, and -sh
* three-letter, long-vowel phonograms like -ade, -een, -ive, and -oke
"We now know--because science tells us--what teaching methods are most effective. The basics work. Reading programs that include phonics and phonemic awareness work."
