    Teaching language arts has never been so fun and easy! Watch your student’s eyes light up with understanding… English does make sense. With The Phonics Road, your student will learn to spell and write as well as they read.

    Combining seven (7) language arts skills in one program?! YES!

    Complete video teacher training through every word, rule, and lesson? YES!

    Everything you need already included? YES!

    Easy to learn/Easy to teach? YES!!

    Something for every student’s learning style? YES!

    Extra help and resources for our teachers? YES!

    Help stop/reverse Dyslexia? YES!

    Homeschool Friendly? YES!

    Charter/Flex School Friendly? YES!

    School Friendly? YES!

    There are four levels in The Phonics Road system. Each new level builds upon the skills learned in previous levels. This allows students starting with any skill level to become great spellers, writers and readers – FAST!

    This method creates greater results, in a shorter time span and with less homework.

    The Phonics Road Level Four is designed to follow Level Three. This level completes the skills your students have been building in The Phonics Road and includes all 7 language arts skills: Spelling, Handwriting, Reading, English Grammar, Composition, and Literature Studies with an Introduction to Latin while incorporating Music, Art, and History. As the teacher, you are guided step by step in how to finish teaching all these skills seamlessly, with ease and confidence.

    In Level Four, we have produced and provide twenty-two (22) hours of explicit teacher training via our video/text. This is the core of the curriculum and allows even a new teacher to begin teaching this method and level with very little preparation time needed. You also receive the physical pieces for both teacher and student. This includes the Teacher’s Blueprint Manual, with Literature Study Guide, and the Student Workbook, Student Literature Study and the book Carry On, Mr. Bowditch, by Jean Lee Latham.

    It’s still as easy as 1-2-3…

    • 1) The Teacher watches the video/text for the week’s lesson (averages about 30-45 minutes per week) …
    • 2) …and using the completed Teachers Blueprints provided, takes any notes needed for that day.
    • 3) Follow exactly what was modeled on the video and begin with your students.

    The magic of this method continues through the interaction between teacher and students, building advanced reasoning and thinking skills. Each student will continue to learn with their natural learning-style (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) while mastering the others. This continues to create success for both the teacher and the students!

    “I wish Barbara had been my grammar teacher. I feel like I'm learning alongside my student. There are many things in The Phonics Road programs that were never explained to me as a student.” – Emma M.

    “Even with my PhD, I realized just looking at the knowledge I have gained, and the ability to read, decode, spell, and memory my students have gained, this program is without peers when it comes to English Language Arts for the Elementary age.” - Phil D.

    This workbook, formerly titled English the Easy Way is full of examples and review exercises to teach or refresh memory in different areas of English. Although the book was written specifically for adult students who want an all-inclusive self-help program in English, the easy-to-read text and step-by-step explanations and examples make it accessible to much younger students. The book builds upon itself, starting with complete sentences and moving on to different tenses, parts of speech, descriptive words and phrases, linking verbs, word agreement, pronouns, balanced sentences, punctuation, the different formats of different styles of writing, word usage, and much more. A chapter on spelling is included with a large list of commonly misspelled words, as is a chapter on vocabulary with tips on how using more exciting or precise words leads to better writing. Instruction is given in a conversational tone, with plenty of examples of correct English. While describing and giving examples of English concepts in an easy to understand way, the book provides review exercises to practice those skills and actually use the rules being taught. Several small (5-10 questions) practice sections are included in each chapter where students complete sentences, fill in blanks, identify different elements of writings, and more to get a hands-on review of the information given. After reviewing several topics, the book provides a cumulative review, with a total of four cumulative reviews and one final review in the book. These tests include multiple-choice questions and exercises where students must identify English aspects in writings or pick the correct way to finish a sentence. After each cumulative review is a skills assessment page that shows students which skills they did well in and which ones need more attention. The easy to follow explanations and examples of terms throughout the book will make it easy for students to understand various elements of English. All of the answers to the practice sections and tests are included. This is a great source for independent learning about English, although it is clearly a review or supplement and not a complete curriculum. The book is perfect for an overall review of English concepts and is especially useful to ensure coverage and knowledge of important English topics before standardized or college testing. 292 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    In today's world of emails, texts and instant messaging, the use of proper language and communication skills is quickly being devalued and forgotten. However, whether realized or not, future employers, colleges, and even spouses will evaluate our young people on their ability to communicate clearly and effectively. This step-by-step, visual guide may be the perfect tool for teaching or re-teaching valuable language arts skills that produce skilled communicators. Covering the four core English Language Arts subjects-Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling and Communication Skills, this well-organized resource is visually appealing and clearly written. In the grammar section, students will review the purpose of grammar and parts of speech, as well as commonly misused words, negatives, idioms, analogies, figures of speech, colloquialisms, slang and much more. The punctuation section provides review of common punctuation signs as well as appropriate use of bullet points, numbers/dates, asterisks, italics and much more, including a brief look at the alternative use of other punctuation with Twitter®. Spelling covers alphabetical order. syllables, roots, prefixes and suffixes, homonyms, homophones, British and American spellings plus much more. The final section, Communication Skills, covers effective communication, paragraphing, layout, writing skills necessary for letters/ emails and the web, as well as writing essays and speeches. A final section offers a thorough reference guide for quick answers to common writing dilemmas. Interesting tidbits are scattered throughout. Personally, the discussion of how our language has changed intrigued me. For instance, decades ago I was taught the possessive of a word ending with "s" was "apostrophe," but it is more commonly accepted now to use "s apostrophe s"--compare "Jess' to Jess's" car. That is just the tip of the helpful information in this great resource. This would make a perfect supplement for media-saturated students or one who has shutdown from the monotony of endless drilling and diagramming. 256 pgs, sc. ~Deanne
