Review: Phonics Reading Workbook, How To Tutor SeriesUser Review - Kitty - Christianbook.com
This entire series has just worked wonders with my 2nd grader. We started out with Abeka and Saxon and this is a much easier program to teach and for her to learn. I would recommend this to any homeschool family where their child needs more phonics help. Read full review
This book is just what it calls itself: a "companion workbook". The author discovered that as effective as Alpha Phonics is, the system would be even more so if there were a set of exercises available for the tutor and student. Besides the exercises, she also included the spelling rules which are valuable aids that will stick with and serve students for the rest of their lives. (I learned them 60 years ago and they still stand me in good stead!).
The exercises take various formats, the first being sentences with a missing letter with a choice of two given the student, such as a choice between an "e" or an "a", or an "a" or an "o". Another lesson gives a series of words each containing an "h" and the student is to choose which of them has a silent "h". The type of exercise varies with almost every lesson, holding the attention and interest of the student.
I highly recommend it!
