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.

Spelling with Ziplock Bags and Magnetic Letters!

Magnetic Letters

 

Inside Zip Lock Bags

 

Can Make a HUGE difference

 

For Learning to Sound Out Words!

 

 

Zip Lock bags and magnetic letters work wonders for teaching kids how to spell phonetically, especially when followed up with reading the word and writing the word that was placed inside the bag.

 

Phonetically spelling words is so important,  and the Candy 4WAY Phonics Curriculum for just $9.97 is helping parents teach their children to read thousands of words by sounding them out.

In addition to our many affordable phonics materials, we really enjoy finding hands-on ways to introduce phonetic concepts to children.  Spelling and sounding out words always go together, so I’m delighted to share this zip bag technique with you because it really, really works!

 

A simple approach like this can make all the difference in the world in how well a child learns:

1)    A spelling rule

2)    How to apply that rule when approaching a word

3)    How to picture a word

4)    How to arrange that word

5)    How to sound out and write that word

6)    How to hear and sound out that word from dictation.

Here’s how it works:

  • Look ahead at your child’s reading lesson that day.

  • Count and write down the words that you know he’ll struggle with.

  • Now, on the outside of the zip lock bags you’ll be using, label with a black magic marker a number on the outside of each bag. For example, if you have 5 words, then you’ll have 5 zip lock bags numbered 1 thru 5.

  • Write or type the words on a separate sheet of paper in the order you desire to introduce them to your child.

  • Place the magnetic letters for each one of those words in the zip-lock bag labeled with the number you desire for that word (one bag per word).

  • Now get out your magnetic board and hand the zip lock bag to your child. Have your child pour out the letters and place them randomly up on the magnetic board.

  • Tell your child the word, and have him spell the word with the letters he has placed up on the magnetic board. Help him sound out each word as he spells it with the magnetic letters. Make sure you tell him that he has to use ALL the letters in the bag.

  • Next, have him copy the word either on a dry erase board or a chalkboard or in a pan of salt if you think that would be fun.

  • Now, erase that word. Put the letters back into their bag, and go on to the second word in the zip bags while following the same procedure. Introduce all the zipped bags of words in the same manner.

  • When you’re all done, dictate each word to your child (one at a time) and have him write out each word with a pencil or on a dry erase board or on a chalk board (this time he’ll need to sound out the word from memory, so don’t hesitate to help him if he needs the help. You want him to spell the word correctly so that the first time he sees his own writing of that word, he’s looking at the correct spelling of the word).

  • Finally, take him into the reading lesson. Sounding out those “words to watch for” should now prove to be a tad easier for him.

 

Have fun with this – phonetically spelling words is supposed to be fun to learn!

If you need to break this whole plan up into two or three sessions – do it!

I Sure Hope My Third Grade Child Learns How to Read this Year! FREE PHONICS!

FREE PHONICS!

It’s true.  If a child has not learned how to read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade – well – to put it mildly, he’s in trouble!

What’s more, here is what happens later on when parents and teachers FAIL to make certain that their first through third graders LEARN TO READ:

 

Illiteracy Statistics

In a study of 20 ‘high income’ countries, the US ranked 12th on literacy tests. Illiteracy has become such a serious problem in our country that 44 million adults are now unable to read a simple story to their child. A few other shocking facts:

 

  • 7 million Americans are illiterate.
  • 50 percent of adults cannot read a book written at an eighth grade level.
  • 20 percent of Americans are functionally illiterate and read below a 5th grade level.
  • 30 million Americans cannot read a simple sentence.

 

Just about everything has been blamed for the fact that far too many of our children are struggling in reading, that far too many of our third graders cannot read all the words on the page proficiently.  There’s been finger-pointing accusations such as the following:

  • It’s the parent’s fault

  • It’s the fault of the unions!

  • Those government bureaucrats are hindering teachers because of all their ridiculous requirements.

  • My child has a bad teacher!

  • My child must be ADD or ADHD or hyperactive!

  • My child hates school!

  • Our government isn’t giving teachers enough money!
