Phonics Pathways: Clear Steps to Easy Reading and Perfect Spelling, 10th Edition

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.

Spell to Write and Read Core Kit

This core kit includes everything you need for Wanda Sanseri's "Spell to Write and Read" curriculum. The five components work together for a unified language arts program for ages 4-6, or as remedial/reinforcement work for any age. 

Based on the principles of internalizing (spelling), recognizing (reading), composing (writing) and comprehending (understanding) words, The Spell to Write and Read book uses logical progression and multi-sensory instruction to help children learn to spell. Seventy phonograms and twenty-eight spelling rules are the basis for everything else learned, and are presented in a positive manner instead of filled with exceptions to the rules. Each lesson is filled with historical and spelling notes on each concept, as well as examples, demonstrations, and activities for each new rule or phonic. This overall teacher's manual replaces Teaching Reading at Home & School as the companion to the spelling list in Wise Guide for Spelling.

The WISE Guide for Spelling contains over 2000 core words plus derivatives, divided into lots of twenty that are organized by spelling difficulty. Preliminary warm up activities and teasers, example sentences, spelling rules, and enrichments are included for each lesson. Students are to build their "own textbook", with this guide overseeing the process; lists refer back to the phonogram rules and steps in Spell to Write and Read to help provide context in teaching. 

A set of 70 basic phonogram cards are provided, as well as a phonogram CD to assure proper pronunciation. The front of each card has a phonogram typed in lower case, while the back gives information, including handwriting helps. A set of small spelling rule cards includes two sided cards; a graphic on the front illustrates the spelling rule, while the back contains the actual rule, example words, and additional valuable information. Based on the 28 rules in the program.
