Alpha-Phonics A Primer for Beginning Readers


Now in its tenth edition, Phonics Pathways teaches students of all ages the rudiments of phonics and spelling with an efficient and practical method. 

Students are first introduced to short-vowel sounds with notes on diacritical marks, two illustrations to help with sounds, and a bingo game before moving on to two-letter blends (eyerobics). Charts combine sounds which students read until it becomes second nature. Three-letter words are introduced with many charts which students read across the page to blend letters into three letter words; t win-consonant endings, consonant digraph endings, suffix sounds, long-vowels, plurals, consonant digraph beginnings, r-modified vowels, and other phonetic lessons are covered through an introductory page with teaching tips and then charts for students to read until they can decode the words. Organized by sounds and spelling patterns, Phonics Pathways introduces patterns one at a time and slowly build them into syllables, words, phrases, and sentences. Printed in a large 8-1/2" x 11" lay-flat format for easy photocopying, Phonics Pathways is filled with illustrative examples, word lists, and practice readings that are 100 percent decodable. While appropriate for K-2 emergent readers, this award-winning book has also been used successfully with adolescent and adult learners, as well as second language learners and students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia. 267 pages, softcover. 

This 10th Edition now includes pictures illustrating every sound introduced, lessons in dividing multi-syllable words, and nonsense word reviews to ensure learning.

Saxon Phonics Intervention, Home Study Kit

If you have older, struggling students who are reading and spelling below their grade level, perhaps it's time for Phonics Intervention. This systematic program will put them on the road to reading success! Lorna Simmons, a former classroom and special education teacher, created the program when her oldest son was still having difficulty reading upon finishing second grade.

In keeping with the Saxon philosophy, this curriculum builds on prior learning, and presents information in small, carefully sequenced increments. Covering consonants, vowels, and reading comprehension, the program offers explicit, systematic strategies for decoding and spelling words. Consumable work sheets, speed drills, and vocabulary tests reinforce learning and provide daily reading opportunities. Students also learn dictionary skills through progressively difficult alphabetizing activities.

The teacher's manual includes all lessons, assessments, speed drills, word lists, and reduced versions of student materials. Kit includes a teacher's manual, student workbook, and classroom materials. Grades 4 and up.
