Step-by-Step lessons That Take Your Children Through All the Steps to Reading Mastery

Over 22 years have gone into perfecting these reading lessons. Based on Montessori teaching principles, they start building the most important foundation in learning how to read: Understanding the sounds letters make. Then, your child is naturally progressed through more adcanced concepts which lead to complete reading mastery. We suggest starting your children with the Alphabet Cards below.

English and Spainsh Languages

These lessons help emergent readers learn the first sound that each letter makes, which is the first building block in the reading foundation. Each letter has a picture that helps with its association. The child can hold the card and say, "a a apple" to reinforce the letter sound. All 26 letters with complete instructions for use are included. Spanish cards have 31 letters.

Special care has been taken to ensure that each letter has a clear phonics based image matched to it with no consonant blends used for beginnings sounds. Images used include: apple for the letter "a", and fish for letter "f". Using words such as frog for the "f" sound is incorrect because the "f" and "r" sounds are blended together so the "f" sound is not isolated. Most lessons on the market fail to use correct letter sound isolation in this important foundational lesson.

3-Letter Phonetic Word Cards

Word Reading

Once a child has mastery of the first 26 sounds of the alphabet it's time to have them learn how to string them together to make words. These cards are specially designed having a word on the outside and its picture on the inside to enable students to make the letter sound and discourage picture guessing. After reading the word, students can check the picture.

The sets are organized into vowel groups. This helps your child practice with each of the vowels. You can mix the cards up later for variety.

Careful attention has been used to insure that only phonetic words and the most commonly occurring sound of each letter are used. At this stage of reading development we don't want to introduce advanced phonics.

4-Letter Phonetic Word Cards with Consonant Blends

Word Reading

After mastering the alphabet sounds and reading 3-letter words, the next step is to practice reading consonant blends. These cards are designed like the 3-letter cards above to hide the pictures until the student reads the words.

Also, as with the 3-letter cards sets, only words that are strictly phonetic and the most commonly occurring sound of each letter is used. The skill of blending consonants has been isolated with these carefully selected words to help your child practice this essential skill. No advanced phonics are used at this stage beyond the skill of consonant blending.

The sets are organized into fun categories for your child's interest and enjoyment. There are 7 sets of cards with each set matching a different theme. The 7 categories helps to promote interest and to encourage your child practice on this key reading skill of consonant blends.

Contrary to the current educational paradigm, children do not need to practice reading a list of exclusively "pl" words like "plan", "plot" and "plod" or a list of "st" words like, "stop", "stun", and "stub". It's much easier to practice only the skill of blending consonants and skip list reading. blending consonants is a skill that translates to all lists. Special practice with blending and segmenting will make the job of consonant blending even easier.

3-Letter Phonetic Word Sentence Cards

Sentence Reading

These sentence reading cards are the missing link for reading. Most reading programs go from reading words to reading books. They don't give children experience practicing reading sentences outside of a book format. These cards are a breakthrough approach to helping children read. They gradually help children string words together to make sentences.

Just like words are made of letters, sentences are made of words. Children are taught the sounds of letters and how to put them together to make words. So too, children need to practice stringing words together to make sentences before they are taught to string sentences together to make paragraphs.

These booklets gradually increase in difficulty to help children master the skill of sentence reading.

All of the previous sets of reading cards are like little books indirectly preparing your child for successful book reading. These sentence booklets take this one step further by providing sentences for your child to read in a mini book format. These booklets are in an sequential series that take your child from reading 2-3 word sentence fragments to reading short 3-6 word sentences and finally onto multiple sentences. This series starts with 3-letter phonetic words and moves through 4-letter blends. Then introduces longer phonetic words and finally silent final e words.

Your child will say, "I can read books!"
