When children begin writing, if they cannot hear and confidently pronounce each distinct short vowel sound, they will often leave out the vowels when writing three-letter words, or mumble the vowel sounds when sounding out  three-letter words.
 
This is tragic, because in order for children to become proficient readers, they must solidly know each of the short vowels and be able to hear the difference between each of those sounds.

At Candy 4WAY Phonics  remedy this problem at the very beginning of phonics instruction by giving children a separate multisensory vowel picture for each of the short vowel sounds.

These multisensory pictures help children to “punch” the short vowel sounds when sounding them.
 
From there, children are able to proceed into blending a beginning consonant sound with a short vowel sound.   

Hearing the individual vowel sounds and correctly pronouncing them is quite often a problem for the struggling older reader as well.

Although we highly recommend that you purchase the entire Candy 4WAY Phonics Program for just $9.97 to fill in all the phonics gaps for your older student, we would like to offer parents and teachers a FREE Short Vowel Multisensory Flashcard to help their students grasp the five short vowel sounds.  Click here for that FREE resource.  

For helps with beginning students, we highly recommend our 31 A to Z Multisensory LARGE Wall Cards for just $5.97 by which students can grasp the distinct sounds of all the alphabet letters, including both the short and long vowel sounds.   However, for just $9.97, you can purchase All 65 of our Multisensory LARGE Wall Cards to print as often as needed.   With these 65 Large Multisensory Wall Cards, your student will gain phonemic knowledge for all of the Alphabet Letter Sounds, as well as gain more and more phonics knowledge by learning every spelling for the 114 common but tricky phonogram sounds. 

At Candy 4WAY Phonics , we truly desire for children to learn to read every word on every page.

She had just reached her 4th birthday! 

We were standing at the entrance to our favorite family restaurant waiting to be seated when little Shannie spotted the restaurant sign set up just in front of the cash register.

The sign read: “Please Wait to be Seated!

Out loud, Shannie began the process of sounding out the words: “pl —– eez / wāt //bee/seeted.”

Suddenly, with tremendous enthusiasm, Shannie turned to me and said, “Mommy! That sign says that we should wait to be seated!”

Others standing around us couldn’t help but notice.

After all, we’re talking about a 4 year old little girl who could sound out words that are not normally presented until the last part of first grade.

Other mothers paused to ask me, “How does she know how to do that?”

I told them all about a simple, parent-friendly 4WAY Phonics system, that same 4WAY Phonics system used to teach a little girl named Candy, back in the 1950’s, how to read. I explained to them that their child could also learn to read in such a manner, even at this young age, if they were taught to read  by their mother, using a step-by-step 4WAY Phonics system of reading, while snuggled up together on their living room couch for just 20 minutes a day and 10 minutes more just before bedtime.

That’s all the time it takes. It’s a very simple formula for teaching a child how to read every word on every page:

                  A proven 4WAY Systematic Phonics reading method

                  PLUS affordable (just $7.97) step-by-step Daily 4WAY Phonics Lessons, Phonics Charts, and Multisensory Flashcards

                  PLUS one loving, caring, and teachable Mommy

                  EQUALS one child who learns to read every word on every page!

The next time you go to your favorite family restaurant, wouldn’t you be delighted to see your little guy or gal sound out the words on the sign next to the cash register?  Or read the menu?  Or skim one of the books on the bookrack?
