LANGUAGE ARTS Learning to Read

Simple, affordable, and complete—everything you need to teach your child to read.

Year 1: Letter and Sound Recognition First, the child masters the names and most common consonant and short vowel sounds of all the letters of the alphabet. Pre-Reading Blends Next, the student learns to blend letter sounds to create and read short-vowel words. Story Booklets, Level 1 The student begins reading short stories constructed with short-vowel words. Level 1 contains 15 booklets. Although each child learns at a different pace, the general goal for kindergarten is to complete the 15 stories in Level 1. By the end of Level 1, your child will be reading stories with 170+ words, and will be ready in first grade to proceed to longer stories and more complex words in Levels 2–4! Year 2: Story Booklets, Levels 2–4 Levels 2–4 contain 10 booklets each. As the student progresses through the levels of stories, new vowel and consonant sounds and blends are gradually introduced. When the student completes Level 4, he will be reading at a second- to third-grade level.
