Each LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcard / Wall Card Picture appeals not only to a child’s sight, but also to his sense of touch, his appeal to colors, his sense of emotion, and his sense of hearing.
With these 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards your child will learn:

1)        all of the alphabet letter sounds

2)      both the short and long vowel sounds

3)      all those 114 common but tricky phonogram sounds

These Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards display multisensory pictures as well as tons of catchy rhymes and phrases.

 

This is a great resource to help young children as young as preschool with phonemic awareness all the way up to older children who struggle in reading and need to learn not only the phonograms, but all the possible spellings and sounds for the alphabet letters and phonics blends.  And they are the perfect décor for a teacher’s classroom walls or a homeschooler’s education room.

 

Imagine a child viewing a freezing bear inside of an ice cube that represents the sound of the phonogram br.

Or a hooting owl that represents the sounds of the phonograms long u, long oo, u_e, ue, ui, ew, and ough.

 

If you’ve ever viewed the television special about Marva Collins, you’ll remember those vintage multisensory alphabet letter wall cards that surrounded her classroom. Each wall card illustrated one multisensory picture that represented one of the alphabet letter sounds.  The Candy 4WAY Phonics 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards have been patterned after those vintage wall cards, except that each Candy Multisensory Card has been updated with this generation’s styles.

 

Multisensory training takes advantage of the way our senses–hearing, sight, and touch — reinforce one another as we learn. The combination of listening, looking, and moving presented in these flashcard pictures creates a lasting impression—things connect to each other and letter sounds begin to fit into place in a child’s mind.

 

The  Candy 4WAY Phonics 65 LARGE Colored Multisensory Flashcards / Wall Cards is a great resource to help young children as young as preschool with phonemic awareness all the way up to older children who struggle in reading and need to learn not only the phonograms, but all the possible spellings for the phonogram sounds.

Teaching Preschoolers to Read – Preschool Phonics Lesson Plans – Teach Preschoolers to Phonemic Awareness and How to Blend Letters

Posted in teaching preschoolers to read | Comments Off on Teaching Preschoolers to Read – Preschool Phonics Lesson Plans – Teach Preschoolers to Phonemic Awareness and How to Blend Letters

 

One of the goals for Candy 4WAY Phonics is to make certain that today’s Parents and Teachers have what it takes to get phonemic awareness systematic phonics skills into our children as early as possible.

 

Phonemic awareness is an ability children develop that enables them to recognize individual sounds inside words by using both their ears and their eyes. It’s the ability to hear, identify and manipulate the individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken words. 

 

Phonological awareness begins to develop during the preschool years.  Unless children are given help from parents, teachers or other adults , those children with lower levels of phonological awareness will continue to be delayed in this skill from the late preschool period forward. 

 

Researchers have found that phonemic awareness and letter sound knowledge (not the names of the letters but the sounds that the letters stand for), are very clear-cut school entry predictors of how well children will learn to read during their first two years of reading instruction  (Share, Jorm, Matthews & Maclean). 

 

Moreover, the necessity to gain subsequent left/right letter-sound blending skills can only follow after a child has a strong handle on Phonemic Awareness.   

 

QUESTION:  Could you repeat in layman’s terms exactly why phonemic awareness and early systematic phonics preschool training are so helpful for 3 and 4 year old children?

 

ANSWER: Many times, 1st through 4th grade children have difficulty with phonics instruction because they did not develop early phonemic awareness skills and subsequent letter sound blending skills during their preschool or kindergarten years.

 

For example, did you know that approximately 62% of the English language is made up of short-vowel words and syllables? So learning to fluently sound out three-letter, short-vowel words (CVC words) gives children an immediate head start in reading!

 

Yet, so very many children start out first grade attempting to read three-letter words (CVC Words) but fail miserably because:

1) They don’t know where to begin reading a word.
2)
They cannot distinguish between the vowel sounds.
3)
They cannot distinguish between the three individual sounds in the word.
4) They have not been given enough exposure and practice mastering letter sounds, learning to blend two-letter sounds, and learning to blend three-letter words.

 

As a result, these children are given failing grades in reading early on.

 

Many of these children develop self-image problems that mostly likely would not have occurred if only they had received ALL THE BUILDING BLOCKS to systematic phonetic reading.

 

QUESTION: So what is included in the Candy 4WAY Phonics Preschool Systematic Phonics Package for 3 and 4 year old children?

 

ANSWER: Candy’s 4WAY Phonics Preschool Systematic Phonics Package for 3 and 4 year old children includes all of the following for just $7.97:

 1) Candy’s 31 Multisensory LARGE A to Z Flashcards/Wall Cards (with multisensory vowel helps) 

 2) Candy’s 82-page eBook:  How to Teach Candy’s Systematic 4WAY Phonics  

 3) How to Follow Candy’s 4WAY Phonics Preschool Program 

 4) Multisensory Vowel Helps to teach preschoolers to distinguish between the vowel sounds 

 5) Rhyming Alphabet Phonics Charts that carry a child right up to the Daily Preschool 4WAY Phonics Lessons 

 6) 25 Step-by-step Daily 4WAY Phonics Preschool Lessons – Click here to see samples of our Preschool Step-bystep Daily Phonics Lessons. 

 7) Sequenced Preschool Lesson Drill Sheets to provide continuous review  

 8) A Preschooler’s First Reader 

 9) Farmer Dan’s Critters Games are included with the Preschool Package (these two games lead children through 3-letter, short vowel words and are also sold separately) 

10) Achievement Awards Certificates  

 

After completing the Candy 4WAY Phonics Preschool Package, preschool children will be “way ahead of the game.”

 

Having gained the skills to sound out 3-letter, short vowel words, preschoolers will be ready to begin the SECOND level of the Candy 4WAY Phonics Program that will take them all the way through 4th grade and higher reading level.

Does Your Child Hate Reading Logs?

Posted in i hate reading logs@ | Comments Off on Does Your Child Hate Reading Logs?

 

Hundreds of thousands of parents are hearing their child tell them that they “hate” reading and that they hate filling out reading logs. 

 

Unfortunately, it’s the children who struggle in reading who are asked to document their reading by filling out those dreaded reading logs. 

 

Even more sad is the fact that hundreds of thousands of children who have fallen behind in reading this past year are going to be encouraged to go through the Reading Recovery Program.  They will be given lessons reading many little books with tons of whole sight words to memorize from the Dolch Sight Word List.

 

They will be told to read 2 or 3 familiar books and then to reread the same predictable words in whatever book they read the day before.  

 

Countless numbers of parents have signed reading log after reading log only to discover that their child still could not read every word on every page. 

 

Reading Recovery students will never be given what they truly need in order to actually catch up in reading.  

 

You see, one well-known problem with Reading Recovery is that Reading Recovery does not include systematic, explicit, synthetic phonics, and systematic phonics has been clearly defined by the National Reading Panel as absolutely necessary for a child to catch up in reading 

 

So, Mom, would you like to make some real progress with your child in reading this summer?  I will tell you that real progress will not happen with a reading recovery program.  In fact, if your child struggled in reading this past school year, then, Mom, Dad, I emphatically believe that YOU can catch your child up in reading!  What’s more, you can do it for less $10 and in just two 15-minute, one-on-one reading segments a day! 

 

You see, little Candy learned to read, and YOUR child can learn to read, too! Your child could be learning to blend together all the letters in the word, reading every word on every page, skimming through connective words and complex sentence openers, and progressing into inferential thinking.

 

YES, all of that can happen with YOUR child!  However, your child will need two VITAL tools to entice him onto that exciting journey:

1) He will need to use a tested systematic phonics reading system.

2) He will need a reading teacher who intensely and emotionally cares about his reading progress.  That means that your child needs YOU as his reading teacher.

 

Your little one does NOT need a village or a certified teacher to learn to read! 

Your child just needs a mom (or a dad) who is willing to become a fellow learner with their child.  That’s because God has designed PARENTS to instruct their own children in the foundational basics needed to get along in life.

 

KNOWING HOW TO READ IS ONE OF THOSE FOUNDATIONAL BASICS!

 

Of course, for the most part, a parent’s one-on-one instruction in any subject area will produce better results than group instruction. Reading, however, is the entire foundation of learning!  Therefore, reading is best taught to a child one-on-one by his parent.

 
 
It has been my teaching experience that our society has been fed a list of FIVE terrible, terrible “reading” liesFollowing are a list those lies countered with THE TRUTH. 

  

1.) LIE NUMBER ONE – Teaching reading is difficult

THE TRUTH?  The subject of reading is not difficult to learn or teach.  With patience and a correct 4WAY Phonics system, learning to read can be fun and fullfilling for parent and child.

 

2.) LIE NUMBER TWO – Teaching a child to read can only be accomplished by a trained professional.

THE TRUTH?  Parents make THE BEST teachers for their child.

 

3.) LIE NUMBER THREE – Teaching a child to read requires the knowledge of a combination of several reading methods.

THE TRUTH?  Teaching a child to read requires the knowledge of only one 4WAY Phonics system for reading.

 

4.) LIE NUMBER FOUR –Parents and others who decide to invest in reading materials must be prepared to pay a pretty penny for those materials.

THE TRUTH?  Reading material should not be expensive. A consistent, time-proven reading system is all that is needed to create a good reader. The Candy 4WAY Phonics Program is a time-proven, complete K4 thru 4th Grade 4WAY Phonics Program, and it’s designed for PARENTS and sold at a price PARENTS can afford!  For less than $10, you can purchase an entire systematic 4WAY Phonics Program (100 lessons, 20 colored story readers, multisensory tools, rhyming colored charts, pronunciation keys,  phonics drill) — EVERYTHING!

 

5.) LIE NUMBER FIVE – A parent who does not know phonics cannot teach a child to read phonetically.

THE TRUTH?  Parents who don’t know phonics make THE BEST teachers, because they know their child’s feelings and fears!  Parents know that if their child learns to read, he will  feel smart.  All children need to feel smart!   

So how can Moms (and Dads) make that difference in their child’s reading ability?  To begin, Moms can select the one reading system that has NEVER failed to work in any language or in any country or in any time period. To read more click here.

Happy Reading!
