First Phonics - The fun way to learn to read!

This is the users manual 2 of 3 in the First Phonics set of videos, users manuals  and lessons program which ensures that a child’s first experiences with reading are fun and successful. Each student is given a Learning Pocket which teaches skills they need to learn. Reproducible flashcards of numbers, lowercase and uppercase letters, phonics sound sentences, and a few simple words address a variety of learning levels. In addition, reproducible Picture Charts that emphasize sounds can be enlarged to poster size or passed out individually.

An original poem, video picture story, and vocabulary list accompany each letter, as well as a variety of cooking, creative writing, language arts, craft, and math projects.


This is the way reading was meant to be learned!
