Candy 4WAY Phonics Customer Reviews

 

REVIEW:  “I just wanted to thank you for the Candy 4 Way Phonics Program. My 8-year old daughter was really struggling with reading, and after buying at least 5 different phonics and reading programs, I was getting as confused as she was about phonics! I found your website and the price was what prompted me to try it. I bought the download, printed it and started her and her younger sister on Candy 4 Way Phonics. I can only say Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! This is finally making sense for all of us, even to this homeschooling mom! My daughter went from being reluctant about reading and guessing words to sounding them out. It makes sense to her. I praise the Lord for guiding me to your site.”

WHERE DID CANDY 4WAY PHONICS COME FROM? 

BACK IN THE YEAR 1956, a little first-grade girl named, Candy, struggled to read.  It was so sad!!!  That year, Candy had entered first grade with such high hopes of learning to read only to have her hopes squashed and her self-image poured down the drain.

However, thank the good Lord, that wasn’t the end of this TRUE story, because Candy received the phonics help she needed, and in just six months, Candy went from being the worst reader in her class to being the best reader in her class. 

Today, Candy can read every word on every page of every book placed in front of her.

REVIEW:  “I purchased The Candy4Way Phonics Program July 4, 2010. It costs less than $10.00 and is a very good intensive phonics program.”

SO WHAT WAS THE SECRET TO LITTLE CANDY’S READING  SUCCESS?

The answer for Candy’s reading struggles came when Candy was sent away to a little white cottage behind her school to receive extra help in reading.  Let me stop here and explain.

You see, when Candy was in her regular reading group at school, her reading lessons had come from a new sight-reading series bought by her school that year called: The Dick and Jane Series.  Like so many thousands upon thousands of children since that time who have been trained to read using look/say sight reading techniques, Candy soon discovered that memorizing whole words was very, very difficult.  This is because children only have a capacity for memorizing about 2,000 whole words, and then their little brains just get exhausted. 

However, because Candy was such a horrible reader, she qualified for extra reading help, and that help came in the form of Systematic Phonics using three different phonics approaches:  Synthetic, Linguistic, and Analytic.  At the little white cottage, just six months later, after using this 3WAY Phonics approach, little Candy went from being the worst reader in her class to being the best reader in her class.

REVIEW:  “Candy’s 4Way Phonics is a systematic curriculum that takes the student from basic letter sounds through reading mastery. . .The author does an excellent job of laying the foundation of why you should teach phonics in this format, and then explaining how to implement the program. . .This is a very affordable program, and if implemented consistently, according to instructions, will grow your child into a proficient reader, ready to tackle any word they encounter.”

REVIEW:  “I am a grandmother who watches two of my grandsons each day. The oldest one is now in school. I was able to purchase the Candy 4WAY Phonics Program, and I cannot begin to tell you the difference it’s made with our oldest grandson. It’s so easy to use. You simply begin with the first rhyming alphabet chart and keep going. The key for us was not allowing our grandson to go on to one lesson until he had mastered the lesson before it. This sounds simple, but it was. The program makes it simple. He also wasn’t overwhelmed with Sight Words, because there are so few Sight Words in the program. He liked the flashcard charts, and he so much looked forward to the readers! The Candy 4WAY Phonics Program is (Grandma) friendly! The price for the program is a steal for what you get. In fact, it’s unbelievable, and we will be able to print everything we’ll need for all the rest of our grandchildren as well.”

~Grandma B

SO HOW DOES ALL THIS HELP THE CHILDREN OF AMERICA TODAY?  

Today, that same phonics system that taught little Candy to read back in 1956 is available for purchase, except that it has been upgraded for today’s generation of children.  Moreover, Candy’s 3WAY Phonics approach has now become a 4WAY Phonics approach with the addition of Rs’A Phonics:  rhyme, rhythm, and alliteration.

Printable Multisensory Alphabet Phonics Wall Cards – So Affordable – 65 Colored Cards

Posted in printable wall cards for teachers | Comments Off on Printable Multisensory Alphabet Phonics Wall Cards – So Affordable – 65 Colored Cards

Did you know that in addition to offering a COMPLETE Phonics Curriculum for only $9.97, Candy 4WAY Phonics also makes available 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Phonics Flashcards / Wall Cards with multisensory pictures, catchy phrases, fun words and all the possible spellings for 140 phonics letters and blends for  just $6.97?

If you’re looking for a multisensory tool to help your children learn not only all the phonics sounds but also all of their possible spellings, this is fantastic resource!

 

Each LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcard / Wall Card Picture appeals not only to a child’s sight, but also to his sense of touch, his appeal to colors, his sense of emotion, and his sense of hearing.
With these 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards your child will learn:

1)        all of the alphabet letter sounds

2)      both the short and long vowel sounds

3)      all those 114 common but tricky phonogram sounds

4)     all the spellings for each phonogram sound – For example, did you know that Long A can be spelled 10 different ways!

 

These Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards display multisensory pictures as well as tons of catchy rhymes and phrases.

 

This is a great resource to help young children as young as preschool with phonemic awareness all the way up to older children who struggle in reading and need to learn not only the phonograms, but all the possible spellings and sounds for the alphabet letters and phonics blends.  And they are the perfect décor for a teacher’s classroom walls or a homeschooler’s education room.

 

Imagine a child viewing a freezing bear inside of an ice cube that represents the sound of the phonogram br.

Or a hooting owl that represents the sounds of the phonograms long u, long oo, u_e, ue, ui, ew, and ough.

 

If you’ve ever viewed the television special about Marva Collins, you’ll remember those vintage multisensory alphabet letter wall cards that surrounded her classroom. Each wall card illustrated one multisensory picture that represented one of the alphabet letter sounds.  The Candy 4WAY Phonics 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards have been patterned after those vintage wall cards, except that each Candy Multisensory Card has been updated with this generation’s styles.

 

Multisensory training takes advantage of the way our senses–hearing, sight, and touch — reinforce one another as we learn. The combination of listening, looking, and moving presented in these flashcard pictures creates a lasting impression—things connect to each other and letter sounds begin to fit into place in a child’s mind.

 

The  Candy 4WAY Phonics 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards is a great resource to help young children as young as preschool with phonemic awareness all the way up to older children who struggle in reading and need to learn not only the phonograms, but all the possible spellings for the phonogram sounds.
