Can you


really stand


watching your child


struggle with reading


 for another school year?


Don’t you remember what it was like to watch your child struggle with reading last year and the year before that and the year before that?

Don’t you remember getting those past report cards that included comments like these?


Your child has difficulty distinguishing sounds in words.


Your child needs to increase his speed and comprehension in reading.


Your child is not able to blend short words using the vowels without  assistance.


Your child is not learning to attack words independently.


Your child’s reading is jerky, hesitant, irregular, or slow.


Your child does not comprehend what he reads.


Your child is not interested in books or reading.


Your child cannot read to follow directions.


Ok, so now your child is past the time when he/she should struggle with reading.  He is past the time when he should have learned how to read every word on every page. In fact, now your child has entered that phase of school where he/she is expected to not only NOT struggle with reading, but, rather, to actually read AND COMPREHEND what the words in the textbooks say and mean – you know – those history textbooks and language textbooks and science textbooks and math story-problem textbooks.  Yes, those books.  The ones you KNOW your child struggles to read


And I’m sure you’re concerned that from this point on, your child will develop self- image problems, will fall farther and farther behind in school, will receive mediocre (at best) grades, lose any vision of ever succeeding in life or going to college or pursuing a good-paying job.  And you know that all of this naturally leads into a child choosing the wrong kinds of friends. You see, when a child advances in school and his struggle with reading remains year after year and textbook after textbook, these ARE the results you can expect.  

In fact, more than 8 million American students in grades 4 through 12 struggle to read. 





have to happen! 

Your child

does NOT

have to continue

to struggle with reading! 


YOU can change all of this for your child by simply teaching him/her how to sound out every word on every page. 


How?  By using a parent-friendly, extremely affordable, step-by-step phonics curriculum that will take both you and your child from the very beginning letter sounds to being able to sound out every word on every page.  Your student will no longer struggle with reading but will be sounding out all the words on the page, even the words he has never encountered.


Now I’m not talking about the type of reading instruction that teaches your child to memorize whole words from a word wall and then throws in a little bit of phonics. Memorizing whole words without ever learning that the letters within those words are connected to sounds is exactly why so many children in our nation struggle with reading. 


I’m talking about systematic, phonics first, step-by-step phonics – the kind of phonics that does not force children to memorize hundreds of whole words from the Dolch Sight Word List. 


I’m speaking about the kind of phonics that was still around when all the John Boy Walton’s were growing up.  I can assure you, THOSE children did not struggle with reading.  They easily sounded out all the words they encountered because they had been taught, systematically, step-by-step, how to do that.


It’s a fact, children who lived just prior to and through the Great Depression learned to read using a systematic, phonics-first curriculum in which they learned all their letter sounds, vowel sounds, and every other possible phonogram, and then they learned to blend all those letter sounds together , from left to right, in every word on every page.


Those were children who did not have to guess at words because they knew how to easily sound out words they had never seen before?


Well, you say, “phonics curriculums are fine for those parents who can afford them, but I don’t have $200 to $300 to spend for lessons and charts and readers and flashcards.”


The folks at Candy 4WAY Phonics understand this dilemma, and that’s exactly why we offer a Systematic 4WAY Phonics Curriculum that includes EVERYTHING the high-priced phonics curriculums include such as: daily, fun, step-by-step phonics lessons, phonics charts, phonics readers, phonics drill, phonics flashcards, at ABSOLUTELY NO COST.



Don’t miss this opportunity to teach your child how to read.  Make the difference.  It’s only going to cost you 20 minutes a day of working with your child, but if you don’t teach him/her to read, it WILL make all the difference in the world for his/her future success for the rest of his/her life!


Does your child still struggle with reading?  You CAN change that.
