    Phonics instruction integrated with Bible stories and verses. Is a well-done program with these characteristics exactly what you're looking for? Master Books has introduced an easy-to-use program with straight-forward lessons and little prep for the teacher. Starting with letter recognition it proceeds through short vowels, long vowels, and some digraphs. Both letter sounds and printing letter strokes are taught.

    Organization is not typical (N, D, A, T, S, P). The accompanying narratives are in biblical chronological order, however. Daily lessons introduce letters with a biblical narrative (N is for nothing, none, not even a bit! Genesis 1:1-2) and a Bible verse. The lesson/narrative is scripted for the teacher and includes questions for the student, finger tracing, listening, identifying words with the letter sound, and reading practice followed by a worksheet for the student to complete. Bonus (optional) activities are provided to use as needed and time permits. Introductory material for the teacher includes general instruction, a writing readiness assessment, sight words for each lesson, helpful hints for teaching the lessons, a materials list, a daily lesson schedule (5 days a week for 18 weeks), and a progress chart. There are periodic reviews.

    This is a one semester course for either Kindergarten or First Grade. It seems like the publisher may be planning a sequel but if not this is an excellent standalone and will get your student off to a good start. ~ Janice

    From one homeschool mom to another. Everything in this program is designed to communicate "I'm a homeschool mom that taught my kids to read. It's easy. It's fun! You can do it, too. Have a great time." And I'm sure if you follow Diane Hopkins' step by step approach wrapped with loving teacher-student interaction, that's exactly the result you'll get. After going through the just-the-right-size (25 pages) Teacher's Guidebook and looking through the brightly colored cardstock that makes up the program, I'm happy with the appearance of the product and really, really impressed with the content.

    Starting at the very beginning, Mrs. Hopkins has boiled the entire process down into eight steps. And even if step seven (teach phonics units containing two or more letters) has seventeen parts, she's still managed to make a homeschool mom's most fearful task into something that seems remarkably ordinary and doable.

    The package contains the Happy Phonics Guidebook, "My Big Book" (an almost-to-the-end-of-the-program-reader) and lots of printed, brightly colored paper and cardstock – flashcards, game components, first little readers and spelling lists. The Guidebook contains the Eight Steps along with specific how-to instructions for each step. The essence of the program is to introduce the phonics concepts a few at a time and then play games for retention. The author suggests that lesson time be about 10 minutes a day, but you may want to factor in more time to play the games over and over just because the student wants to.

    The Guidebook is extremely user-friendly and written in first-person, mom-to-mom form. The step-by-step instructions are straight-forward and easy to follow. All references to the games and other supplementary material are coded with little symbols found on the colored sheets. Practically foolproof! But just to be sure, there's a chart that lists which games/components are used with each teaching step. There's also a chart clearly laying out those seventeen phonics units that make up step seven. And, of course, the teaching aids are clearly marked for each unit.

    The teaching progression is common sense. Alphabet song; capital letters match lowercase letters; the main sound for each letter; blend letter sounds to form a word; teach common non-phonetic (sight) words; teach vowels that can make a second sound; teach through the phonic units; READ. Although she doesn't consider them absolutely necessary, the author does mention supplementary material that she likes and that her children have enjoyed – Lauri perception puzzles, Leap Frog Phonics Library, and the Explode the Code books. In fact, she changed her original letter presentation order (used with her older children) to conform to the Explode the Code books for her younger children and in this program. She also suggests various supplementary readers.

    The games and other reinforcement activities are obviously a central component of this program. Some preparation is involved, usually just cutting cards apart. I would be inclined to laminate (or cover with clear contact paper) some of the frequently-used cards and game layouts if I thought it likely I'd be using the program with a number of children. The games include some adapted favorites like Phonics Bingo and a number of creative originals like the Y Not? Game. The line art of the game components is not high tech graphics but still communicates the concept and looks inviting. Components of the games are color coded, with the little symbols marked on each game piece, so that you can easily unscramble things if they don't always get put away neatly.

    This program fits into the "complete program" category of phonics instruction, as it includes systematic phonics, reinforcement, and reading practice. The program gets your student reading on his own in an enjoyable way. Please note that it does not cover advanced syllabication, prefixes, and suffixes that tend to be found in second/third grade levels of some phonics programs. But it is an enjoyable program that will build the confidence of a newbie and provide ease of instruction for busy homeschooling mothers. All for a very reasonable price! - Janice

    Lauri® products have been teaching your children for many years, and now they have applied their early learning experience to helping your children with their phonics.

    This 2-drawer heavy-duty storage chest holds 52 Lauri® crepe letters in primary colors (1 each of upper and lower case), 26 double-sided letter cards (3 3/4"x 8"), 2 letter order charts, and an activity guide. Use the cards to learn initial letter sounds, identify letters, or find the missing letters in a sequence. For example a card with a picture of an apple and an acorn says, "Aa is for acorn and apple," and there are two blank lines on which the child is to place the correct upper and lower case letters, or you can let the child place matching letters on a letter order chart. I know this sounds like child's play, but this is the learning that will stay with them. Let Lauri® be your classroom helper! ~ Donna

    Explode the Code in 3D! This royal blue felt wall chart contains 26 pockets. Each pocket contains a colorful, removable stuffed toy that children can play with. The toy is the key word used in the Explode the Code books to learn their respective letters (an apple in the "a" pocket, a bell in the "b" pocket, etc.). Letters are shown in lowercase on the chart. In case the toys don't get back in their pockets, replacement parts are available from the publisher. 16" w x 32" h.

    The accompanying booklet is an aid for parents to help get the most out of the Explode the Code wall chart. It explains how to introduce the letters and gives a variety of games to play that will teach and reinforce the names and sounds of letters. The 34 games explained in the book are presented in order of difficulty, beginning with games involving one step and moving on to games with two or more steps. Each of the games can be played with any number of children and in flexible circumstances. Some of the games require extra materials such as note cards, markers, and scissors, but they are all fairly easy to set up and play. Variations of several of the games are given with questions to ask while children are playing the games.

    It would be hard to get more basic than this kit – a set of 79 cards, another card with instructions, and a wall chart. But, oh! The places you can go! The 5.5" x 8" cards are a complete set of phonograms - phonogram on one side; sample words and exceptions on the other, along with a reference to the wall chart. The 44" x 68" wall chart is a summary of all the phonograms. The instruction card tells how to teach phonograms, words, and sentences. This "kit" might be all a resourceful mom would need to teach reading, or to supplement other reading/phonics programs. From the same publisher as the Classic Curriculum and with vintage feel, it's the perfect reinforcement and review resource for that program. ~ Janice

     SnapWords Volume 1 includes six sets of SnapWords (Lists A, B, C, D, & E plus the NCDMS List). The Snap Words Mini-Lessons – a175 pg, spiral-bound book – provides straight-forward, easy-to-use lessons for each card and accompanies this set. Each “lesson” consists of 2-3 paragraphs that introduce the word, talk through the motions as well as the picture and provide sentences to illustrate the word. The remaining component of Volume 1 is a collection of sentences made from the sight words (i.e. sentences to read). These provide reading practice. This booklet – Sight Words in Sentences – is also user-friendly with sentences based on the SnapWordÒ sets. Each page has five sentences printed on alternating strips of color/white. Print size is large for easy reading, which is good practice for reading the words that are being learned. Taken altogether this is a solid set for learning sight words. Those who follow the “phonics is best” school might resist but it’s easy to see that this method of learning works very well for some learners – right-brain, autistic, aspergers, maybe even dyslexics. There is a cleverness to the visual depictions that will win you over. Volume 1 with its 306 words makes an excellent follow-up to Alphabet Tales and can be used in conjunction with the Easy-for-Me Readers. ~ Janice
