Overview

This user-friendly book with step by step directions gives any reader the tools to teach someone else to read. With easy to follow lesson plans, built in evaluation, and tips on how to reach students in the way they learn best, anyone can teach a child, teen or adult, an individual or a group, a beginning or at-risk reader.

The book's emphasis is on the important early basic skills of: * Memorizing a sight word vocabulary of words used most often, which can't be figured out by using the most commonly used phonics rules. * Using the most commonly used phonics rules to figure out words used most often, which don't need to be memorized, and obtaining a firm knowledge of how to apply those rules to future unknown words. * Developing basic comprehension skills to assure that the reader understands what the words are saying.

Check lists are provided for determining how the student learns best. Multiple activities and unique yarns, called "Silly Stories," and cartoon illustrations make phonic rules and sight words fun to learn and more memorable. Lists of consonant and vowel sounds, sight and phonetic words, plus rules used to figure out words are included in the Appendices.

An ideal book for parents to use at home to guarantee their children are not missing out, it also works well for volunteers in literacy programs, classroom instructors, charter schools, or for friends who use it to help someone who doesn't want others to know they can't read. While one might think a book like this is for only for children, adults have also enjoyed the activities and silly stories while learning to read.
