Free Phonics When American Kids Can’t Read

Posted in American kids cannot read, American Reading Scores are bad | Comments Off on Free Phonics When American Kids Can’t Read

 

Our National

Reading Report Card

is Failing Kids!

 

The Nation’s Report Card Shows Terrible Scores For Reading – ONLY 38% of seniors read above grade level and 25% of seniors read BELOW grade level.

 

Honestly, I can’t believe the NAEP even has enough guts to publish it.  The result is THAT bad!

 

Just in case you have been led to believe that the public school Common Core standards are producing reading levels for our children that are going up, that are getting better, think again. 

 

The dreadful results of our children’s reading levels are horrifically alarming and chock-full of present and future dismay.

 

 National Assessment of Educational Progressaverage scores for fourth and eight grade reading are disgusting. Only 34 percent of students were rated reading “proficient.” 

However, the worst part of the results is this: they’re being played by our educational establishment as “school success” instead of being reported for what they truly are:

a national school fiasco in literacy instruction.”

 

 Am I exaggerating? Sadly, no, I’m not. 

 

Look at the results, and YOU DECIDE.  Is this what you want for your child?

 

HERE’S HOW IT ALL BEGINS:

 The latest stats tell us that a whopping 64% of fourth graders are NOT reading at grade level.

 

The news is horrible at the older grades, too. By the time our present-day students complete the 8th grade, just before they enter high school, 66% of them are NOT reading at grade level.

 

That’s the bad news.  Would you like to hear some good news?

 

Our reading problem

is really simple to fix.

 

In fact, our nation’s reading problem is just as easy to fix as it was for a little girl named Candy who started out as the worst reader in her reading group.

Our Teachers do NOT know Systematic Phonics!

Posted in free phonics curriculum, Teachers do not know phonics | Comments Off on Our Teachers do NOT know Systematic Phonics!

So many  parents today

 

are exclaiming:

 

“Help!  My child is not learning 

to read in his classroom!”

 

This is because our teachers do not know phonics – synthetic, explicit, systematic, phonics-first phonics; so our public schools are failing to teach our children how to sound out words systematically, using a systematic phonics curriculum.

 

This is NOT the fault of our teachers.  Sadly, the colleges our teachers are trained in do not offer them methods classes in explicit phonics or in how to teach the sounding out of the phonograms in a systematic form.

 

So our kids are memorizing words like “elephant” in kindergarten or first grade without first learning how to sound out words from left to right or that the letters ph represent the sound of letter f

 

Oh, I know, there are plenty of children coming home with smiles because their report cards tell parents that their children are learning to read, but it’s a hoax.

 

It’s simply not true. Children are NOT LEARNING to sound out words; children are learning to either memorize whole words or they are taught “to guess” at words based upon the context of the sentence, the shape of the word, or how the word begins.

 

 You see,  the standard for the meaning of “literacy” has changed. You can see that changing standard when you read our newspaper articles or when you read the words put up on the screens in our church praise and worship time. There are spelling errors and homonym errors galore.

 

This is because children are being taught to read using whole language memorization by teachers who only know how to teach using whole language memorization, in spite of the fact that one of the standards set forth in the Common Core Guidelines is that children should be taught to read using systematic phonics.  

 Sadly, even though Common Core standards call for systematic phonics, our children are NOT receiving it because there isn’t one state college ANYWHERE in the nation that teaches our teachers systematic phonics. As a result, there are also NO READING CURRICULUMS in the public schools that teach systematic phonics.

 

 Are you understanding now

 

why our children

 

cannot sound out words

 

and why 40% of our fourth graders

 

cannot read at grade level?  

 

 

 

When the majority of our teachers themselves have been trained to read through sight-reading techniques and, then, are not being offered a college training course in systematic phonics, it spells disaster for the next generation of public school students.

 

The late Phyllis Schlafly explained perfectly what’s going on in American public classrooms when she said:

 

“Whole Language teaches children to guess at words by looking at the pictures on the page, to memorize a few dozen frequently used words, to skip over words they don’t know, to substitute words that seem to fit, and to predict the words they think will come next. The child who is taught those bad habits, instead of how to sound out the syllables, will never be able to read big words or become a good reader.

 

Many schools give high grades and happy report cards to children who are good at guessing and memorizing words, so parents don’t realize that their children are being taught to guess instead of to read. Self-esteem is a higher priority than literacy.”

 

There is a solution, and it is ABSOLUTELY FREE.   I know, it sounds too good to be true; but it is, nevertheless, TRUE.

FREE PHONICS FOR the Child Who Failed Reading

Posted in failed reading, free phonics curriculum | Comments Off on FREE PHONICS FOR the Child Who Failed Reading

Was your child

placed in a

lower-level reading group

or did he fail his grade

after being tested in reading?

 

Many children are receiving the DIBELS Reading Assessment Test.

 

So what is DIBELS, and what is the outlook for your child NOW?

 

 

DIBELS stands for “Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills” and many, many school systems are now using these tests as a measure of how their students are doing in reading, and as an identifier of students that may be “at risk.” 

 

Children that are considered “at risk” are those that, according to research, are most likely to possibly fail at some point in their school careers.  Therefore, extra assistance is often suggested in order to prevent such failures.

 

But what is that “extra assistance” going to include?  More of the samo, samo?

 

You hear parents and teachers say, “It’s best if your child is placed into a lower-level reading group so he can compete with others at his reading level.”

 

They also advise that “The smaller reading group that the struggling reader is placed into will help him “catch up.”

 

I say: BOLOGNA!

 

Smaller remedial reading groups can’t hurt, but unless they include a systematic phonics curriculum, they aren’t going to do much to improve a child’s reading skills, let alone “catch him up.”

 

It really doesn’t matter what test you give a child to determine his reading level because unless systematic phonics instruction will be the outcome for students struggling in reading, all the tests and reading groups in the world are not going to help that student “catch up” to the rest of the class.

 

HOWEVER, if that child receives systematic phonics instruction, he WILL catch up, and he will most likely PASS UP the other students in the class.

 

Why?

 

Because systematic phonics instruction teaches children how to sound out every words on every page for the rest of their lives. 

 

It’s just that simple. 

 

Teaching a child to sound out a word from left to right, enabling him with the blending knowledge of all the letter combinations WILL produce a fluent reader. 

 

Moms, Dads, if your child has been placed in a lower-level reading group, STOP depending upon the teachers to catch up your child in reading.

 

Catch up your child YOURSELF.  YOU do the catching up with him.

 

Give him the step-by-step phonics instruction he needed in the first place, and do not break your bank account to purchase that curriculum.
