    You fill out a passport when you visit other countries; why not track the places you visit in literature the same way? These inexpensive passport-themed booklets make fun little personal reading logs. Each measures 4 ½" x 5 ½" and includes 24 pgs. Students can personalize the first page with some information about themselves, then fill out the rest of the booklet's pages as they plow through their reading list. Each page offers lines to record some basic information about the book as well as an open space to draw or write more. Covers are assorted bold colors and the whole thing is small enough to fit into a larger notebook, lapbook, or scrapbook when complete. – Jess

    The Ordinary Parent’s Guide by Jessie Wise shares the phonics teaching methodology first utilized with her own children. While Part 1 starts right off with phonics lessons, Part 2 includes information to prepare and encourage a young child to be a reader, manage the reading session, and provide a complete index to the lessons with questions and answers. Phonics instruction includes: short-vowel sounds; consonant sounds; short-vowel words; two-consonant blends; consonant digraphs; three-consonant beginning blends; long-vowel sounds; silent-e words; long-vowel sound spellings; other vowel sound spellings; other spellings for short-vowel sounds; silent letters; r-changed vowels; two-syllable words; other letter patterns and silent letters; possessive words and contractions; other spellings for the long-e sound; plural and hyphenated words; three-syllable words; endings, suffixes, and prefixes; more letter patterns; and a final section on homonyms, homophones, and homographs. Occasionally, additional supplies like a magnetic alphabet board are needed for optional activities, but usually blank index or the Flashcards are the only supplies needed.

    Originally developed as a software package, the success of this simple, phonetically-based program encouraged the publication of The Reading Lesson book. The Reading Lesson is broken into 20 lessons, intended to be done side-by-side with a parent or teacher. A correlating Reading Lesson CD-ROM is available from the publisher, which features animations, audio and simple games. However, the book can be used on its own, and at this time the book is the only component we are offering.

    Lessons introduce and use specific letters and sounds. The entire alphabet is not taught at the beginning, nor is it taught in order. Letters and sounds are introduced in groups which can be used to read the corresponding simple stories. For example, Lesson One introduces c, o, s, a and t while Lesson Two features m, d and r. Each lesson contains information for the parent or teacher, words, exercises and short stories. The pacing of the lessons will depend on the child's age, and a suggested number of pages per day is provided. The authors suggest spending no more than 15 minutes on a lesson each day, so as to not exceed the child's attention span. Each page is written to both student and teacher, with instructions in small print at the top. Where letters, words, or sentences are given, small bars underneath the letters remind the reader to focus on one sound at a time, as they point at the letter (these bars disappear towards the end of the book). Gradually (with the parent modeling) the student will start to blend the sounds and read the words. The book teaches most phonetic sounds and blends; however, there are several that might be taught specificially in another course that are designated as "sight words" in this course. Only lowercase letters are taught until the 11th lesson, when several capital letters that look similar to their lowercase counterparts are introduced ('I' is also introduced here, with an explanation on its slightly different look). Other topics, such as the suffix "-ing",and apostrophes are also introduced as they are necessary, but are not covered in a great amount of depth. The emphasis here is to give the child the skills to decode and read words, so that they will "graduate" from the book with a 2nd-grade reading level. With the straightforward presentation, simple effective activities and reinforcement, this book makes the task do-able for student and teacher. Please note that there are several other companion products that are available from the publisher. To preview these, please check out www.readinglesson.com. - Jess

     The human mind asks questions in layers, seeking certain kinds of information; first layer (who, where, when), second (what the who is doing) and third (how these are related). Based on this premise, the Circe Guide to Reading provides tools for purposeful reading, encouraging the reader to participate in a dialogue with the written text. Divided into sections of scanning, reading, and review, each section leads the student through techniques for interacting with the text. Highlighting is suggested but is far from random with each color having a specific purpose (pink/green scans; yellow/blue/orange reads). Appendices include notes on adapting the skills to younger students, making margin notes, and re-reading a highlighted book. A lot of practical training is packed into a small package. 6”x 9” 127 pgs, spiral-bound, ~ Janice

    These sturdy cards provide visual memory cues for the 28 rules taught in Spell to Write and Read. The front side provides a visual representation of the rule while the back states the rule itself. For example, the back side of the card for rule 20 states: "X is never directly before S (boxes, excel). There is an /s/ sound in X." The visual reminder is the letters XS circled with a slash though it.

    Becoming a family that reads aloud together was one of the most enjoyable journeys my family made. I only wish this book had been available when we transitioned into a read aloud family!

    Are you looking to introduce the reading of "living literature" into your home but feel overwhelmed at the vast array of books available? While there are many books available to guide you in selecting books, Read for the Heart is written from the perspective of a home educated young lady who was home educated in a family which successfully incorporated living literature into their home. Sarah Clarkson, daughter of Clay and Sally Clarkson, shares the inspiration and vision for incorporating literature into our homes through research, personal stories and suggestions on how to make reading a reality in your home. Her goal is simply to equip you to develop a reading habit within your own home, and with this book she has accomplished this goal.

    The first three chapters focus on helping you develop the habit of reading in your home. The following chapter is intended to give you a "road map" on using this book most effectively. The remaining chapters contain the booklists and are organized according to types of books. Each chapter focuses on one of the following eight literature categories: Picture Books, Golden Age Classics, Children's Fiction, Fairy Tales and Fantasy, History and Biography, Spiritual Reading, Poetry and Music, and Art and Nature. Prior to the lists, Sarah shares personal stories as well as explanations on why certain books are included in each category. This is specifically beneficial when considering the Fairy Tales and Fantasy Category. Within each chapter, book recommendations are organized by author and include a brief book review. This book review includes author's name, original publication date, award(s), illustrator, general age category, a short review, and any cautions you, the parent, should know regarding mature or questionable content. Appendices at the end of this book provide you quick references for finding books. These lists include Caldecott Medalists, Newberry Medalists, G.A. Henty Historical Fiction, Landmark History Books, Trailblazer Series, and Sarah's personal favorite literature for family read-aloud. All in all, this soft-cover book contains 384 pages of living literature inspiration for your family. The text is a larger print with ample margin space to record your own family favorites, thoughts, and memories. A delightful book that is sure to inspire you on your own journey of family reading. ~ Deanne

    If conventional phonics is not working with your child, or if phonics instruction is turning your "eager to read-er" into a "do we have to?" reader, here's an approach you should try. Based on techniques used in the Reading Recovery program and on observations of methods used by "natural" readers (children who learn to read at young ages despite no formal instruction), this approach takes a middle road between phonics and "sight reading." It is designed to be used one-on-one in a tutoring situation – not in a classroom environment – so it works very well in a home school. The first ingredient is reading, reading, reading to your young child. Predictable readers are used heavily in beginning instruction so that the child can begin to "read" successfully without knowing all of the rules, and can begin to recognize letter-sound correlations in familiar words. Some separate phonics instruction is done as part of the lesson. Initially, letter sounds are taught. From there, instruction depends on the previous day's experience. However, most of the phonics instruction is done within the context of reading and writing about real stories in real books. Phonics rules are not learned in any set sequence, but as the need to use them arises. Books are reread until mastered, then rotated out, with a book on the "cutting edge" of the child's ability added to the mix. A list of recommended children's books is included.

    The author is no stranger to the "great debate" on reading instruction. He has sixteen years of experience teaching in both public and private schools and, as headmaster of a Christian school, oversaw a home education program in which he worked with parents teaching their children to read. He realizes the strong preference homeschoolers have for phonics, but he makes a great case for considering a less "pure" approach. I do think this book is worth reading. After reading it, I realized that my children all learned a little this way, despite my attempts to teach them strictly phonetically. When Mark was learning to read, he just wouldn't wait for me to slowly make it through our phonics program. Armed with the essential basics, he wanted to read, and proceeded to do so; reading and rereading familiar books until they were mastered, demanding explanations of unfamiliar constructs as he went, and then applying this knowledge the next time he encountered a similar phonetic construct. All this from a child who seemed almost dense to me (compared with his older sisters) when using a strictly phonetic method. On reflection, I think he might have done much better from the start if I'd read this book and employed some of these methods. While not for everyone, and certainly not for those of you who won't even consider less than "pure" phonics, I'm hoping this will help with children who may "fall through the cracks" using a traditional phonics approach.
