The Teacher Says My Child is Getting Phonics.

January

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR CHILD IS GETTING PHONICS?  

If you’re talking about explicit, systematic phonics, your child is NOT getting it if he attends an American public school.

You see, American public school teachers do not receive explicit, systematic phonics training in any of their college classes.

Even those very few teachers who were personally raised with explicit, systematic phonics instruction rarely use systematic phonics in the classroom because: Today, the concept of Guided Reading is a featured technique in nearly every elementary school in America.  (Open Education, Fountas and Pinnell)

Now if you’re talking about implicit, watered-down, look-n-say whole-word “phonics,” your child is getting that if he attends an American public school. And that is precisely why so many of our children cannot easily sound out every word on every page.

Having the ability to sound out every word on every page is an especially vital skill because a child’s reading ability will most assuredly affect his lifelong success?

We know this because the surveys tell us that approximately 48 out of every 100 American households are living below the poverty level because the breadwinners in those households cannot read?

IS THERE A SOLUTION?

There sure is!

 

Is it possible for Parents to know for sure that their child is getting the right kind of phonics?

It certainly is!

 

At Candy 4WAY Phonics, we believe that children deserve to learn to read everything put in front of them so that they can move up to other necessary skills like comprehension and inferential thinking – lifelong skills that will give them jobs with an adequate income – lifelong skills that will move them into households far above the poverty level.

While it may be true that almost HALF of American adults grew up as children who struggled in reading, YOUR child doesn’t have to join that statistic.

 

Parents, you can teach your own children to read using a correct, systematic 4WAY Phonetic system, a system that includes daily, easy-to-follow step-by-step lessons, step-by-step rhyming phonics charts, sequenced phonics story readers, rhyming flashcards

– a SYSTEM THAT INCLUDES AN ENTIRE 4WAY PHONICS PROGRAM

 

– a SYSTEM THAT WILL COST YOU just $9.97

 

– a SYSTEM THAT INCLUDES FREE EMAIL COACHING

 

– a SYSTEM THAT WILL TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ OVER 30,000 WORDS AND MORE

 

– a SYSTEM THAT WILL TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ EVERY WORD ON EVERY PAGE!

Moms, Dads, your child CAN learn to read!

Learning to Sound Out Words Should be as Step-by-step as Learning The Movements of the Nutcracker Suite!

November

ANOTHER TRUE STORY FROM CANDY 4WAY PHONICS!

 

Mrs. Woods was a skilled music teacher and, fortunately, she taught elementary music appreciation during a segment of American history when public schools could still afford to teach the subject of music.

 

Traveling from class to class, Mrs. Woods toted music scores, recordings, and lecture notes to each classroom of children, first through the fifth grade. 

 

It was during our fifth grade school year that Mrs. Woods decided that our class needed to become familiar with major classical music selections. 

 

Because she knew that a special Christmas orchestral presentation of The Nutcracker Suite would soon be arriving to our downtown music theater, Mrs. Woods used our classroom time to teach us how to recognize certain movements within The Nutcracker Suite as well as its opening overture and final finish. Our favorite movements were The Russian Dance, The Waltz of the Flowers, and The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

 

After Mrs. Woods was positive that our ears were trained to recognize all of the necessary elements of this Tchaikovsky fairy tale ballet, she arranged for our class to attend the professional orchestral presentation of The Nutcracker Suite.  

 

Even though we were only in the fifth grade and even though there was no stage ballet dance performance to keep us entertained, Mrs. Woods knew we would remain entertained all the way from the very beginning to the very end of the performancebecause we knew the opening, middle,  and closing notes and movements of the ballet and because we knew what to listen for in order to tell when a new movement had arrived.  As a result, we all sat back and thoroughly enjoyed the entire orchestral presentation of this Christmas “Nutcracker” Music Special. 

 

DID YOU KNOW THAT learning how to sound out every word on every page is very much like learning how to recognize all the essentials of a classical music selection?

 

You see, just as a proper classical music curriculum teaches children what to “listen for,” a Systematic 4WAY Phonicsreading curriculum teaches children what to “look for.”

 

Just as classical music instruction trains students to recognize beginning, middle and ending movements within an orchestral selection, Systematic 4WAY Phonics instruction trains students to recognize beginning, middle, and ending letter and phonogram sounds within words. 

 

Just as classical music students learn to listen all the way through Tchaikovsky’s fairy tale ballet by studying it’s beginning movements all the way through to its center movements and on through to the end of the ballet, Systematic 4WAY Phonics students learn to read all the way through a word  by blending its beginning sounds all the way through to its center phonograms and on through to the end of the word.

 

Tchaikovsky’s students do not begin in the middle of The Nutcracker Suite, nor do they begin at the end of The Nutcracker Suite.  They begin a symphony by listening to its opening overture.  Systematic 4WAY Phonics students do not begin in the middle of words, nor do they begin at the end of words.; 4WAY Phonics students approach a word by starting with its very beginning letter sound and reading all the way through the word to its very ending letter sound

 

Our fifth grade class learned all about The Nutcracker Suite from beginning to end through daily lessons taking just one step at a time.  We did not go on to one lesson until we had mastered the lesson before. 

 

The Candy 4WAY Phonics Program takes children from age 4 through Grade 4 from beginning to end through 4WAY Phonics Daily Lessons, taking just one step at a time.  Students do not go on to one lesson until they have mastered the lesson before.  

 

Mrs. Woods was a skilled music teacher and, fortunately, she taught elementary music classes during a segment of American history when music appreciation classes were an affordable school subject.

 

Homeschooling Moms and Dads are caring teachers who, fortunately, are able to teach a Systematic 4WAY Phonics program during a segment of American history when Candy 4WAY Phonics is affordable for all parents. 

 

Systematic 4WAY Phonics is that same 4WAY Phonics reading approach that taught a little girl named, Candy, how to sound out every word on every page.

How are Candy 4WAY Phonics Readers Different from Readers in Other Phonics Programs?

November

How are Candy 4WAY Phonics Readers different from the readers in other phonics programs? 

Candy 4WAY Phonics Readers are different from other story readers in five BIG ways:

1) Letter sounds and blends contained on the pages of each reader are learned by the child BEFORE he reads the story.

2) Candy Story Readers are sequenced INTO the Candy 4WAY Daily Phonics Lessons.  Beginning with Level Two of the program, children are given a story reader to enjoy following after every five daily phonics lessons.

3) Rhyme, rhythm, and alliteration, a key element of many of our story readers, makes learning to read more fun!

4) Small stories build into longer stories as children move on to read sentences containing connective words and complex connective words (subordinate clauses, infinitive phrases, and participial phrases.)   Therefore, our story readers, unlike other phonics programs, progress from six pages up to twenty-nine pages depending upon where a child is in his daily phonics lessons. 

5) Sentences containing varied connective-word sentence openers introduce children to higher level reading abilities (fourth grade reading level and well beyond).  We do this because it has clearly been demonstrated that when children DO receive these types of complex sentence structures, they are better able  to express complex ideas, to paint word pictures, and to convey complex relationships.
