Sets One and Two
The success to teaching anyone to read is to teach one
sound at a time. Our Phonics Readers practice the student in one vowel
sound at a time. When the student masters one sound at a time, he or she
can easily learn to read without overwhelm or confusion. In Set One, the
short sound vowel of the letter "a" is practiced. It is surrounded by a
number of consonants so the student gets used to its sound with the
various consonants and even covers plural words containing the short "a"
word. This is done at a pace which allows your student to learn this
sound so thoroughly, he or she will never have a problem with it again.
The stories and illustrations guarantee engaging interest and allow the
reader to participate in the learning process.

Now that your student has mastered the short sounds of the "a" vowels
and has read, on his or her own, five full books, it is time to teach
him or her the remaining short vowel sounds. Set Two covers the short
sounds of "e," "i," "o," and "u." After reading the books in this set,
if these vowels have been taught and practiced well, your student will
have mastered the most difficult aspects of learning to read - the short
vowel sounds. Your student will be proud of having read a full ten books
on his or her own and will be ready to proceed to the more complex
aspects reading by phonics. See
