about this item

Teaches students of all ages the basics of phonics with a time-tested, foolproof method

This tenth edition of the best-selling book teaches reading using sounds and spelling patterns. These sounds and patterns are introduced one at a time, and slowly built into words, syllables, phrases, and sentences. Simple step-by-step directions begin every lesson. Although originally designed for K-2 emergent readers, this award-winning book is also successfully being used with adolescent and adult learners, as well as second language learners and students with learning disabilities. Wise and humorous proverbs encourage virtues such as patience, perseverance, honesty, kindness, compassion, courage, and loyalty.

  • Offers help for all students including those with learning disabilities or very short attention spans
  • Includes extensive examples, word lists, and practice readings that are 100% decodable
  • Uses a multisensory method that benefits all learning styles

This bestselling, much-loved book offers a complete approach to teaching phonics and reading for a fraction of the cost of other programs.

The best-selling Phonics Pathways teaches students of all ages the rudiments of phonics and spelling with an efficient, practical, and foolproof method.

 

The book is organized by sounds and spelling patterns. These are introduced one at a time, and slowly built into words, syllables, phrases, and sentences. Simple step-by-step directions begin every lesson. Extensive examples, word lists, and practice readings are 100% decodable. Each new step builds upon previously learned skills for continuous review and reinforcement. Learning in small, incremental steps is easier for everyone, especially students with learning disabilities or very short attention spans. A multisensory method is used to address all learning styles, and every letter introduced is illustrated with multiple pictures beginning with its sound. These features are especially helpful to second-language students.

 

Although most appropriate for K-2 emergent readers, this award-winning book is also successfully being used with adolescent and adult learners, as well as second language learners and students with learning disabilities. Wise and humorous proverbs encourage virtues such as patience, perseverance, honesty, kindness, compassion, courage, and loyalty.
