Review Quotes

"I love Wiley Blevins Phonics A to Z book, and found this version for Intermediate grades to be just as valuable as a resource. It has all you need to help the Intermediate struggling reader. It has ready-to-use lessons, extensive word lists, and quick assessments. It has a section with step-by-step syllabication support that is very helpful! The daily activities and games are interesting and fun. Another must have resource for your teacher resource shelf!" --Ruthie

"Readers of author Wiley Blevins' first book, "Phonics from A to Z for Grades K-3" will find a wealth of new material in this comprehensive work that offers step-by-step instruction to support struggling language learners in grades 3 through 8. The 3rd-grade overlap between the two books signifies the time when students transition from learning to read to reading to learn. It's a significant shift that if bungled can leave a child with serious educational and social deficits.

In his first book, Blevins identified children at being high-risk for reading difficulties as: limited exposure to books, low socioeconomic families, below-average intelligence, limited development of oral language, and English as a second language. For some children, the deck is already stacked against reading success. If we add insufficient teacher readiness to the list, the negative consequences are multiplied. In fact, a 2015 study found that only 36% of fourth-graders (in the U.S.) read at or above the proficient level.

Getting teachers the training and tools (like this guide and a fully stocked library) they need to turn even at-risk students into readers is vital. Educators who understand and teach phonics and word study can have a big impact on their students' reading success. Like in his first work, Blevins offers terrific explanations, context, examples, strategies, and activities. He has a way of making language feel electric and dynamic.

Educators and even parents will benefit from careful and repeated reading of this work." --Melanie Gilbert
