Phonics the Easy Way

A Clear and Comprehensive Guide to the Most Up-to-date Methods for Teaching Your Child to Read

Clear and comprehensive, this is the only book for parents that includes and explains the new government guidelines in detail. There has been a shake-up in the way children are taught to read in primary schools in England. The government has accepted a review that backs the use of a method known as "synthetic phonics," where children are taught letter sounds (c-a-t spells cat), not the names of letters (cee-ay-tee), before they move onto simple books. Phonics is already used in a lot of schools, but not necessarily in a systematic or prescriptive way. These changes—which are being introduced at the end of 2007—will mean that all children will be taught this way before the age of five. Phonics: A Reading Guide for Parents ties in to this new government literacy strategy and is a core guide to help you to teach your child to read using phonics. It follows the latest recommendations of the DFES and the Primary National Strategy, reflecting the new, fundamentally changed, teaching guidelines.

This book provides a guided, comprehensive program for any parent or care-giver who wants to teach a preschool child how to read. The author, a life-long teacher, enabled all 3 of his own children to read independently by age three-and-a-half. The method he used, Systematic Phonics, is the method used throughout the book. In this phonics program, there are no lists of sight words for your child to memorize. Instead, you will teach your child to read unfamiliar words by decoding them: matching their letters with appropriate sounds and then blending those sounds together. Using this phonics program, you will gradually reveal to your child the complex code that underlies all competent reading and spelling. In doing so (and this is crucially important) you will make reading and spelling logical for him. As he begins to understand that logic, he will delight in the code, and he will want to learn more about it.The author will guide you through each step of this 12 to 18-month program. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you personally provided your child with one of the most important intellectual skills she will ever need to master. Who could perform this task for her better than you?

Statistical reports indicate that 2.7 million public school students nationwide have been identified as learning disabled, and that fifty percent of all high school dropouts come from inner city schools where twenty-five percent are learning disabled. Since learning disabled students innately have average to superior IQ¿s, why can¿t they learn? For years educators have been in search of the right reading approach, one that would meet the needs of all children. Since the early 1900¿s we have switched from a sight approach, to a phonetic approach, linguistic, whole language, integrated, and now, a researched based, balanced approach. The No Child Left Behind Act has set a goal that by 2014, all children in the United States are to be proficient in reading. The dilemma lies in how this is to be accomplished even with this improved balanced approach. Educational specialist Addie Cusimano shares her findings which are based on her research, work and success with students from pre-school to college age, from learning disabled to gifted. She presents her answers to the No Child Left Behind Act, discusses approaches that work best, the importance of teaching specific learning skills, and offers many valuable teaching techniques and strategies. Her premise is that learning disabled students can and should be cured at the elementary level, and that the best approach for all children is one that incorporates more facets of learning than are presently taught. This revised second edition of her book adds two new chapters, the teaching of foreign languages and mathematics. Written in an easy to read fashion, Learning Disabilities: There is a Cure offers educators, parents and professionals a refreshing and assured method for the solution to serious academic concerns.
