This manual will teach students how to apply phonics rules through six easy steps to reading. Blends and words are arranged to correlate with the sequence in which special phonics sounds are taught; the early introduction of vowels helps students move quickly to whole words. Students will learn to recognize short vowels & their sounds, consonants & their sounds, blends, how to sound one-vowel and two-vowel words, the sounds of the long vowels, and special phonics sounds. Review and practice exercises are integrated. Grades 1-3. 6' x 9'.
