Product Overview

Author:
Length:

Too many parents watch their children struggle with early reading skills—and don't know how to help. Phonics programs are too often complicated, overpriced, gimmicky, and filled with obscure educationalese. The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading cuts through the confusion, giving parents a simple, direct, scripted guide to teaching reading—from short vowels through supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. This one book supplies parents with all the tools they need. Over the years of her teaching career, Jessie Wise has seen good reading instruction fall prey to trendy philosophies and political infighting. Now she has teamed with dynamic coauthor Sara Buffington to supply parents with a clear, direct phonics program—a program that gives them the know-how and confidence to take matters into their own hands. This is the previous edition. The revised edition is also now available.

  1. Question

    Jaime Morgan

    I notice that the revised edition is in two parts – an instructor book and a student book.
    Is this the case, or is this an all-in-one, stand-alone book?
    If the latter, how are the student activities handled? Does the instructor hand over the book to the child, and have them write their answers on paper?

      This is the original version, and the student and teacher are using the book at the same time (so you have to be sitting together). Any writing or drawing, by student or teacher, is done on flash cards or paper. The student will mostly use the magnet board and letters.

      The Revised Edition is in two parts, with both the Instructor Book and Student Book being required.

    I am sad to learn this version is becoming obsolete. I have used this to teach all of my children to read and loved having just one book to keep track of. My boys state they did not mind sharing a book with Mom either.

    I bought this book for my oldest child. Eight years later, I am teaching my fifth child how to read from our very-worn book. Thank you for a great resource!
