Over the years, I’ve had countless questions from teachers and homeschoolers who want a streamlined system for presenting and working through the essential activities needed for teaching beginning reading. If you’ve been looking for some step-by-step guidance on how to set up your reading sequence in a simple way without getting overwhelmed, I created the Phonetic Reading course for you.
“I really appreciated the thoroughness and completeness of the lecture and course materials. This is by far the best investment I’ve made as a professional educator and homeschooling mom.” -Yvonne H.
In this course, we’ll spend a little bit of time talking about how to set the stage for reading but the bulk of this course is on actual reading lessons. I’ll show you how we introduce the concept of reading, how to teach 3-letter words and move on to blends and words with multiple syllables, and then how to work with phonograms, puzzle words and alternative spellings. I’ll show you how to set up your shelves and I’ll also give you all the printables you need to set up your reading sequence!
I use a combination of the pink, blue, and green series and the Dwyer method in my approach. If you’ve been struggling with teaching reading to your students or with deciding what you should put on your shelves and what you don’t actually need, this course will give you the resources you need to be successful.
Note: This course is not about teaching pre-literacy skills. These activities are for children who already have a foundation in phonemic awareness and who recognize most letters. This is best for the primary classroom (ages 3-6)
“After the first couple of lessons, I spent a day rearranging my (materials). I didn’t say a word to my students but not even 2 minutes into our morning work-time, I saw 4 girls standing in front of the shelf. I called to them and asked them what will they choose. They said “Everything here!” These 4-year old girls took most of the exercises to their rug and took turns working with it. I was amazed the difference it made!! Thank you Seemi.” – Elda R.
